Is it just me or are there other mothers and grandmothers out here who have a problem with the way some businesses are run?

I'd like to know why I can't just buy ONE SHOE in a shoe store.  Yes, I know they come in pairs but if one shoe is lost, why is it necessary to purchase a new pair of shoes at the same price?

In the past 72 hours, my grandson has lost two shoes—-not two pairs of shoes—but two individual shoes. For the life of me, I can't figure out what might've happened to those shoes.  We've searched frantically in the house and in the car and even outside the house—in the yard—hoping those missing shoes would turn up.  No such luck.

But get this—in a conversation with a store clerk I learned their lost and found box is filled with kids' shoes!  Obviously, my grandson isn't the only toddler running around with just one shoe.  

It might not be a bad idea to check some of those lost and found boxes at the various stores to see if I find a match.
