My “kid fears” week on the Ping continues. Two big fears I had as a kid were related to shopping with my folks. No, no, it wasn’t anything they did.
One fear was experiencing a power outage in the store – while in the bathroom. I distinctly remember this happening at least once at Zayre when I was, oh, really little. And it freaked me the heck out. Even to this day, walking into a darkened public bathroom makes me jumpy for a second.
But the bigger one was getting separated from my folks at the store. This happened more than once at Venture, and then I had to go up to the customer service desk in tears and ask them to page my mom or dad. Never fun, never fun.
I didn’t fear high prices.
