Thoughts after a situation in Marks and Spencer recently.
I was standing at the customer services desk in the food department having asked for assistance. In front of me there was another blind person, a gentleman. His assistant arrived first and as they were walking away, the gentleman was saying “what have you got?”
This made me cringe. I feel that, as a blind person, asking for someone to take me round, I should have a fairly good idea as to what it is I want to buy so that the assistant isn’t hours and hours looking at stuff I’ll never want.
However, on reflection, I guess that the gentleman, if he didn’t know what M and S sell, was perfectly justified in asking for a guided tour.
I’d never do it though!!
