Bought a pair of strappy heels from Betts and then went to Myer later.  Found a dress.  Tried it on in the change room.  Umming and ahhing about the dress. Wandered around for a bit.  Brain was a zillion miles away.  

Just got home and realised I'd left the shoebox in the fitting room! ddoh.gif

Mum is telling me I should go back because it might still be there.

I don't like my chances though, WDYT?  

If anyone sees a shoebox with size 8 shoes inside.  It's mine!  sad.gif

Why on Earth wouldn't you just ring the store in the first place instead of conducting a survey on whether or not your shoes are still there. Stand up and make a decision for yourself for Heaven's sake.

They have them!  Thank God!

Thanks for suggesting to call...didn't even cross my mind to do that since I think I only saw 3 people working in that whole section.  Gotta love Myer!  wink.gif

I have found numerous items, shopping bags, handbags etc left in fitting rooms and always hand them in. I would think it happens quite a lot.

Glad to hear you got your shoes back.

Hmm calling the place I left them would have been my immediate reaction. My mum works at Myer. Every day there is a whole pile of belongings left in the change rooms.

Glad you called!!

Glad you found them, so annoying when you leave things! I think most people would hand stuff in, I know I would. (unless they were my size and seriously hot, lol).  biggrin.gif
