Dad has taken Mum away for a couple of days. It seems there was an ‘incident’ and he felt she needed cheering up. I don’t have all the details as he didn’t want to tell me while she was there but he did get a chance to speak to my husband briefly so I have half of the story. They were at Sainsburys at the checkout, Dad was packing the bags, Mum was passing him the stuff to put in the bags except it seems that she was passing things before the girl had actually scanned them through. Dad is blind in one eye, so this was happening on his blind side. Next thing he knew, the security guard was tapping him on the shoulder. This is as far as he got with the story as Mum came out of the toilet and he couldn’t continue telling my husband what happened. I’m sure he must’ve got it cleared up, but this has the potential to be a pretty awful situation. Anyone experienced anything similar, any advice on how to deal with it. With Mum being young, people don’t expect behaviour like this (actually I’m not sure they would make allowances even if she was older). Yet another humiliating experience for both Mum and Dad, this is one of the many upsetting things about this. I just know that she will have been mortified. Clearly Dad doesn’t want me to mention it to her. Mum still goes out on her own to the shops and this has made me very worried, Dad still wants her to have as much independance as possible, it just worries me so much that something will happen.
