I’m always moaning on about bad experiences I have as a result of being blind, so thought it only fair to write about a good experience.
My partner and I went to Marks and Spencer’s yesterday to buy underwear! (well you always go to good old M and S for underwear don’t you!) When we arrived, a lady came to us and took us round. She was fab. Whilst I got myself measured, she took my partner off to buy his bits and pieces. The thing I liked about her is that she was completely natural with us. She even advised me on colour at one point which was fantastic.
At the end of our shopping I joked with her and said I’d like to book her for half a day to take me clothes shopping. She said in all seriousness that it would be no problem, so I may just do that!
On the way out she even gave us directions to the nearewst Starbuck’s.
It was such a refreshing change to the negativity or awkwardness we so often face and we came home feeling very positive and relaxed, with all the shopping we’d gone out for.
