So yesterday we had a birthday bash for the youth group. Pumpkin Head and I ran to our local dollar store to pick up some clothes pins for clothespin tag. While looking for them (which takes forever because they aren’t where I think they should be) and finally finding the right aisle, I with Pumpkin Head in my arms slide down and land on my butt! Now, why would I slide down you may be thinking? Well of course, it is because there is a HUGE spill in the aisle. Is there any sign saying “Caution. Wet Floor”? No of course not. My kiddo is screaming and does any store employee come over to check on us? Nope, now a fellow patron does to make sure we are ok, but that’s it. I get up to the register with my clothespins and I let the guy at the register (who just started helping at check out because there was such a long line) know that there needs to be a sign stating that the aisle is wet because I just fell and while I’m ok and so is my daughter she does have a scrape on her leg. He basically down played it and said that when he got time, he would put up a sign. I sure hope no elderly person slipped and fell because I think they would really hurt themselves.
Today, I decided to go to the companies website and write a message about what happened so that they would be aware. Thus far I have heard nothing in response to my note. I really do hope that no one else fell and hurt themselves. I also have no idea what I slipped in as I am not sure that it was strictly water. I am also super glad that I held tightly to Pumpkin Head so that she didn’t hurt herself worse. Other some bruising on her foot and leg and I also have a bruise and am sore, we are fine. She seems totally unaffected by it. I guess I am for the most part other than being frustrated with people that should be handling a situation better.
Has anything like this ever happened to you? What did you do?
