Dear Woolworths, I'm sorry.



 

Dear Woolworths,

Yesterday I frequented one of your stores with my two small children. We were trundling along, choosing groceries and I was trying to stop my independent two and a half year old from 'helping' too much, when disaster struck. She dropped a jar of pasta sauce, and it broke and spilled all of its contents in my half-full trolley and all over the groceries I had picked.

Now I was not having a great day before this happened. I was very tired and stressed, and I was trying to rush through the groceries quickly so we could make it to a Doctor's appointment. I very nearly sat down in the middle of the aisle and had an embarrassingly large tantrum.

But instead, I picked up my baby and my toddler, and we went and informed a supervisor that there was a very large mess in aisle 8, and then we hightailed it out of there, so I could sit in my car and wail.

I am sorry my child made a mess and I left someone else to deal with it. Please forgive me and just blame it on a very tired mother and an extremely bad case of my-children-are-stomping-on-every-last-nerve-itis..... and PMS.

                                                       Sincerely, 
                                                                 Robyn

  1. Oh I have been there and done that, except it was a bottle of tomato sauce. Then there was the time the toddler managed to reach back in the trolley and get hold of the eggs ...

  9. Oh I feel sorry for you Robyn - that ALWAYS happens when we are in a hurry! I hope you made it to appointment on time. The person who cleaned it up was probably grateful for the distraction and change from his/her usual cleaning duties :) Emily

  11. I hope today has been better for you Robyn. Just know we have all been there, it may not have involved tomato paste in Woolworths, but we have all had to step away sometimes for our own good.
