Don't Take Your Daughter into a Strange Mall

...unless she’s there with you in person. Otherwise, when it’s time to go home, you think of calling her to ask where you came in, but of course she won’t know - because she wasn’t there, even though you could swear she was - because you were talking with her for twenty minutes while you walked in and around.

If you’re going to talk on your cell phone as you enter a mall, it does help to have a designated entry point. I always enter a mall through, or near, J. C. Penney, if there is one, or Sears if not. Thanks to that habit, it only took me an extra ten or fifteen minutes to find my way out of the mall.

P.S. I received different reactions to this story from my family. My daughter thought it was funny. But my sister pointed out that we should always be aware of our surroundings, for safety reasons. Thanks for the tip, Sis; I thought I'd pass it along.

The next problem after finding the right door to leave, is finding the row you parked the car. That's my problem. Usually at the grocery store. That's the joy of huge grocery stores.
