Cruel Shoes
Dave Pell

Thanks for another great read, Dave. This one made me recall a time in 1990 when I was in Sears, wanting to buy an oven to replace one that had just died. I was with my (then) husband, and we paced up and down the appliance floor, hoping to spot a salesperson. No luck. I remember both of us at one point, frustrated, yelling things like, “Hello! We want to spend money! Any takers??” Nothing. We left Sears that day without a purchase. I think we ended up at a mom&pop appliance store closer to home. That Sears is still there (but I think it’s on its last legs). I wonder what an appliance hunt there would be like now?
