    To Have Something To DO

    I HATED to go shopping for clothes when they weren't for me, or adult stuff. But I usually got dragged along to GB's, or Lane Bryant's, or Sears, or someplace else. Then I was expected to sit or stand quietly while Mom or Grandma or later, my sister Linda, tried on blouses...

    Every Time

    During our weekly trips to either Wal-Mart, Target or KMart both me and brother would do this. Every time we would get yelled at too. I think the whole point of it was to see who could hide in the most number of clothing racks before we both were getting yelled at. lol

    Three+year+old=logic

     I was a terrible child. I knew it, I didn't have to be told. I never felt guilty about it, though because of that innocent approach kids have about exploring the world.  Since day one I knew a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do, and I gotta explore this crazy place...

    Hide And Seek & Mannequin Friends..

      I was always taken along when my mom went clothes shopping. When I was little, the place was like a something out of a dream with all the colors and racks bigger than me. I used to play intense games of hide and seek with my sister in the clothes racks. When my sister...

    Ha

    I never realized how hard it was on the parents until my little ones started doing it. OMG talk about heart failure. I now know that if one darts into a clothing rack I stop, drop and crawl around looking for little feet. People might think I'm nuts but I find them a lot...

    Ah, I loved it when I was little,

    especially the circular ones that had a gap in the middle of them. It was so much fun to hide in those. It felt like I was in my own little world that no one else could enter. Also, it made me feel invisible to everyone else, which was awesome.

    My Favorite Thing To Do At The Store.

    I couldn't stand clothes shopping when I was young.  I would hide in the clothes racks from my mom.  She'd be pushing my sister in the cart and be yelling out "B, where are you?" Lol!  One time, they were giving away a certain vaccination at Target. ...

    Memory Lane 1

    Oh ho yeah! All the time! When my mom would call for me and my two brothers, we would always go hide in the clothes. We always hid in the old people clothing section (no offense to any seniors) because we knew that that would be the last place our mom would look. E'en...

    Being one of four kids;

    unless mother was shopping for you. It was hide and seek time in the clothes racks. Dare you not hide during your time with mother or else though!

    Cant Find Me~

    huge shopping centres always bored me cos i was a greedy little brat when i was small and if we weren't shopping for me then i didn't care. So i'd run off and hide in the clothes racks. I particularly used to love the circular ones. I'd sit in the middle of those for ages...

    From the Rack to the Leash

    Sorry, the title was my poor attempt at humor. But seriously, I always used to hide under the clothing racks when I went shopping with my mom. I only really remember one incedent where I hide under and in between two racks and jumped out to scare my mom. She has told so many...

    Marks And Sparks

    Marks and Spencer. Or the mum shop as we used to call it. Mum used to drag me and my brother there as kids and we'd be so totally booooored out of our minds. In the good ol' days (meaning 16 years ago...blimey I'm old) M&S was a dreary, claustrophobic place with a dusty...

    Parents need to understand

    that shopping is terribly boring for a kid who just needs to use his imagination a little. But I did nearly kill a few older customers when I suddenly burst out of the rack. So I guess it's a wash.

    Lurking In the Shadows

    This was one of my favourite tricks when I was small and feeling a little mischievous. Often we'd go out shopping on a Saturday and I'd go hide around the dresses or skirt racks waiting to be found. While there I'd have these magical imaginary adventures starring the clothes...
