Dementia, the life debilitating disease which consumes the sufferers entire physical and mental grasp on reality has been successfully exploited by the daughter of one such sufferer today to return two coats and a skirt which were well past their 30-day return policy.
Sally Hughes, whose 79-year-old mother currently fights a daily unending battle to retain any memory that may link her back to her former self, also managed to talk her way out of three parking tickets from outside her boyfriend’s home by repeatedly mentioning her mother had dementia, twice for every ticket.
“I don’t want to use my mother as an excuse” Sally repeated to the minimum wage sales assitant for the third time that day “but you don’t know what its like, having to watch the woman who raised you slowly descend into an unrecognisable shell of herself. I mean, I just can’t take it, it’s so hard” Sally continued as she began to let out tears.
“I’m happy to take store credit”
