While looking a salesman asked if he could be of assistance. Since my feet were hurting I went right into how I purchased the sneakers 3 weeks ago and they hurt and are cutting into my foot. Could anything be done? Chris told me he could see by looking at them that they were way to small and stated I should've had him help me. Ridiculous. I told him someone else helped me and I came to Big 5 and paid more for sneakers not expecting experts, but a bit of help. Hey, I expect to pay a bit more, but get product that works. Otherwise, instead of dealing with brainless twits, I might as well save money and order from Amazon or Zappos. He asked if I had the receipt. No, and I told him I had dementia. I don't know if Chris realized it, but we were heading into an FTD realm of no return. This was about to get out of control and I really didn't give a shit. We went from bad sneakers to me spending $50 and getting ripped off from incompetence. Unacceptable.
Chris was a good manager/guy. He had me sit down. Brought out the same sneakers except 2 sizes larger. Took me to the register and made an exchange. Wearing them now. It's so nice not to be in pain. Big 5 has now earned a loyal customer instead of the worst enemy in the world. An FTD'er.
Have been is a tremendous amount of pain lately. Both hands. wrists killing me. X-rays show extreme damage to one wrist. Had 6 of 8 bones broken/dislocated. Multiple incidents and surgeries with severe arthritis now. The other I can't hold a glass of water and it hurts to type. Have an appt. with a specialist on Monday. Have to actually use my other hand to release the emergency break. Shifting hurts like hell.
Used to take painkillers, but stopped. All the public stigmas and my girlfriend used to drive me crazy. Back on them now and I have relief. I can't tell you how nice it is to have relief from chronic pain. I've a new doctor now, Dr. O'Leary is a good guy. Was interested in FTD and me. Glad I didn't have to fire another one.
Onward we forge with new possibilities opening before my eyes. Will make this blog short. Yes, I'm in pain.
