I recently went to the pool with my ds. I had rode my bike there and the pool is close to a shopping area. Well while at the pool my bag went missing that had my towel, our clothes, shoes (my gym shoes were in the bag, I had some thin sandels on walking around the pool, sun screen ect. I still had my phone in my bag in the locker, along with my cards. Well I had called around since I knew I couldn't ride all the way home (about 12 miles) pulling this bike trailer on main roads wearing thin flip flops and a bikini but nobody could pick us up. So I road to the nearest department store and went in wearing a bikini and flip flops and my son only wearing swim trunks but no shoes (I out him in a cart. I bought some clothes, shoes, and a few snacks, changed in the restroom and left. You should have saw the dirty looks abd comments I got. I was already frustrated so I just went on because I didn't want to get going because I know my mouth can get me in trouble. So my question is, how would you react if this happened to you or if you saw us walking thru the store?

I probably would have thought that you needed clothes to wear home for some reason. LOL.

If it happened to me, I would've done as you did. If I saw you, I don't know what I would do/think. I live in SoCal, so people in beachwear are a common sight.

Well, I wouldn't have given a dirty look, but I admit my initial reaction would have been something along the lines of "WTH?!?". LOL, that is not a common sight around here.

The first reaction is genuine,like what the heck? but I would also think you never know what is going on. So I would not give dirty looks I'd mind my business.

By the way I am sorry that this happened to you.

I probably would have done the same. Makes the most sense to et what you need! As far as seeing you, idk, I would think it was odd you didn't have a cover up but would assume it was swim day so nothing else would seem werid.
