From Sonya L.
I was doing a cell phone shop at a kiosk in a bigger store. I had my 2-year-old son with me. He had started getting a little fussy, so I gave him my purse to play with while he was seated in the basket. I had told the associate that I did not own a cell phone. Well, wouldn’t you know it, the first thing my son pulls out of my purse is my cell phone and starts waving it around. Not only that, but my service was with the company I was shopping, and my phone was easy to recognize as one of theirs. I quickly thought up an excuse that it was my parent’s phone that I was borrowing and they had recommended I get the same service as them. The associate seemed to believe me, but I was sweating it.
Kids – they do the darnedest things!
