Hi all, while I was in Specsavers at our local shopping centre with my next door neightbour's baby in her buggy, I was trying on frames, as I wanted prescription sunglasses, and with them you get another pair of ordinary glasses with a free frame.
My handbag was on the handle of the buggy (stupid I know) and some low life scum, went into my bag and took my purse, with a fair bit of cash, I had the cash as I had saved up for my glasses, which I knew would be around £180 as I wear varifocals. Also I had money for my electric bill. Also my bank cards were in it.
I ran out and couldnt even find any security people. A kind woman came and helped me, having seen I was distressed. Then a kind man offered me his phone after calling the police. There were police in the centre as they had a petition for people to sign to stop serious crime. They took all my details and said they would go into Specsavers and and get the cctv footage. Had a phone call later to say they had good footage and could see who took it.
Only good news is that the managers in Specsavers has offered to let me have free frames and part cost on the lenses as it happened in their store. Its left me feeling so stupid, and angry with myself for being so niave, it was so quiet in the store, I just didnt expect it.I am always careful in the supermarket, or on street markets etc. I have just been out and bought a bag that crosses over the body, so it wont happen again!! Hope everyone has had a good Bank Holiday, love Jay x x :oops:
