My husband does the weekly supermarket shop because I can't manage it and he doesn't want to do in online. So I just use local shops for bits and piece or buy online. But today I wanted a few things from the supermarket and was hoping for inspiration for christmas present for hubby. The blue badge spaces near the entrance were all full but I found one which was outside the shop but down the other end from the entrance.
Went in and decided to use the fast track so got that sorted and had a look around and got some bits and pieces, then fatigue set in with a vengeance and I realised that the fast track till is conveniently placed at the end where the car was, but no exit there! No queue at the customer service by the door so I asked if I could pay there; she said she'd have a go but needed my loyalty card - needless to say I couldn't find it so had to ransack my bag. By the time I did find it there were 10 people in the queue but I just went straight back to the front and ignored the looks and sighs. Eventually got out and got home feeling shattered but pleased I'd done it.
I don't know if such a thing exists but I wish I had some sort of badge or label that I could pin on when I'm on my own so that it would make people aware that I suffer from memory problems due to stroke.
