About 18 months ago, in a time when the sun shone and it was hot!!! (a long long time ago), mum bought some sandals on sale. Now she never got to wear them, as the sun disapeared and once she got them home she realised they were a bit small for her. So in the great shoe clearout of 2009, she photographed them and listed them on trademe (NZs own version of Ebay).
Til last night, when some observant soul noticed that they were two left sandals. Mum hadn't noticed, she was very embarassed, and annoyed that she had recyled the box they came in last week, and she didn't have a receipt.
Anyone with two left feet, that would like some pretty red sandals? Anyone with one left foot who would like two free sandals for the summer?
Luckily I don't wear shoes. That will teach her for not checking in the box, before she left the store. Lesson learnt.
Oh my, That is embarrassing! i hope you did not pay too much for them!ReplyDelete
That's too funny. Too bad the clerk at the register didn't check it.ReplyDelete
MOL! That's so funny!ReplyDelete
I needed a giggle today. Thanks for introducing me to your Friday friend!ReplyDelete
Rusty and Deborah
Ooops. That is too bad...ReplyDelete
Oops! But that still deserves a teehee, because that is TOTALLY something MY Mom would do!ReplyDelete
We hate to say it, Poppy, cuz we know your mom is embarrassed...but that's pretty funny!ReplyDelete
Hahaha! We're very sorry, but we just had to laugh.ReplyDelete
The mom human can't stop laughing. The mom said she's sorry you spent money on two left feet, but you gift of laughter you have given us is priceless.ReplyDelete
Hee hee...too funny. That is so something my mama would have done.ReplyDelete
I don't mean to laugh but A HA HA HA! At least your mum got the sandals on sale.ReplyDelete
They are very cute sandals! We bet the person who bought two right sandals is equally as embarrassed.ReplyDelete
Dat's werser den puttin on two different color sockies.ReplyDelete
What do yoo mean when it wuz hot? Yoo got da same icky cold summer dat we had dis year? Jus two more months an da days start gettin warmer again. We're hoping for a nice warm winter and summer in 2010.
Oops! I thought the store checked the shoe boxes for those things. That sounds like something my mom would do.ReplyDelete
Oh no, that is a little funny...ReplyDelete
Maybe the person who bought two right sandals will see this and you can swap.
That's funny, but it can happen to anyone :)ReplyDelete
Sorry, but we had to have a giggle about that. Sounds very much like something our mum would do!ReplyDelete
Oh no! We didn't notice two lefties either! Maybe the store where she purchased the shoes has the two rights. Maybe they held them thinking the leftie lady may return. Or maybe they'll offer her a discount on a new pair since they'll be embarrassed they sold the two lefts to her.ReplyDelete
Oops! Kind of looks like they might be different sizes too! I guess that teaches all the Moms a lesson! Check the shoebox before you file it away in the closet!ReplyDelete
Hope you have a Happy Halloween!
Hahaha! That sounds like something our mum would be very capable of doing, too. Humans!ReplyDelete
They would be perfect for you, because like us, you, too, have two left feet.ReplyDelete
Happy Howl-O-Ween to you too.
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java
Hmmm, that has to be most useless purchase of 2009 !! hahaReplyDelete
bwahahahahaha! That is too funny! Maybe you will find that famous dancer with 2 left feet, and maybe she wears that size. Akshully, in the photo, they look like they might be different sizes!ReplyDelete
Happy HelloScreamz, Poppy!
*LOL*, that make me think of "Best in Show" - the wonderful movie - although that was a guy who actually had two left feet:) But irl it must be such a nuiscance!ReplyDelete
My mum nearly bought a pair of shoes on sale that were different sizes in one box, luckily she spotted that before she left the shop though. I do think that your mum will have learnt a lesson from this two left feet buy, Poppy...
Ha! Ha! Sounds like something my mom would do!ReplyDelete
Ohhhh yes this sounds like our mummy too...ReplyDelete
HAPPY HALLOWEEN POPPY Q!ReplyDelete
From your pal, HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!!!!
That's pretty funny! You should be able to laugh about this one for a long time. I'm quite fond of shoes myself. I like rolling around in them and on top of them. You should give it a try. I don't think you'd even notice the two lefties.ReplyDelete
mew and Happy Halloween!
OhMyCat...our mewmie almost bought some shoes that were 2 different sizes recently but the lady at the register looked at them first and caught the mistake.ReplyDelete
Maybe they would make nice doggie chew toys??
Last winter I took home a shoe box filled with another customers old shoes, and wore my new shoes of the shop...but your mom's much funnier. maybe through the magic of the innernets, the mates will come together again.ReplyDelete
HA! You ought to advertise looking for the owner of two right shoes and have a meet up!ReplyDelete
