Forever 21 Kicks Mama to the Curb

Mom–Me Time: Shopping Gone Wrong

Yesterday, I shared my dressing room disaster and then coincidentally, came across another mum's dressing room debacle on Jezebel. Unfortunately, this one ended up much worse.

To read this mama's embarrassing moment,


A woman went shopping at Forever 21, a favorite haunt of mine, accompanied by her eight–year–old son. As most moms do, she brought him into the dressing room while she tried on items. The store has a "one person per fitting room" policy, which the shopkeepers applied to this mommy–son duo. According to Jezebel:

The dressing room attendant ordered the mom to leave her child unattended while she tried on clothes. When she refused and brought her son into the dressing room, a manager called security and told the mother she had thirty seconds to scram. She calls it as "the most embarrassing and humiliating moment of my life."

Having worked retail, I understand the store's policy and imagine some moms do use their kids to shoplift. However, I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. And, it seems there could have been a better way to handle the situation than force the pair out of the store.

What do you think of the way the situation was handled?
