Back in 1959 I was eight months pegnant with my son Robbie . I was shopping for socks for my hubbie I had to search all over the store' for a cashier to ring up my purchase. Happy because I got a bargain on the socks' and because my hubby was going to pick me up so I would not have a return trip to Tempe from Phoenix I did not glance at the floor The entrance to the store had a broad step down when you exited the place. I tripped and down I went on my broad rear. Now three people rushed over to where I sat, shocked that I had fallen. One was 'Mr. Goldwater himself with a paper for me to sign absolving the store of any guilt in case I was injured.' The other two rushed to help me and my husband Garland was first. He told me not to sign any paper at all. The other was a woman clerk who asked me if I was okay. So I did not sigh it. Your opinion my lotters was that necessary to pop that stupid paper under my nose instead of helping me up? I had no intention of suing anyone as I was not badly hurt.Just embarrassed. But I will say this when my son was born a month later an anonymous person paid the doctor bill.The clerk told us it was Mr. Goldwater.she thought but since he had shown no sympathy I was not so sure.

First if he had been a Gentleman a real one he would have run to pick you up. He would have stayed by you and not start to shove Papers of this and that under your nose. You were pregnant and he should have behaved like a real Man should. He should have phoned for an Ambulance and got a Doctor. Anyway I am so glad that Garland was with you and the Birth was fine. If it was him that paid the Bill it was certainly no way to act when you fell. He did not give a good example to the Store either. Wonder what the other Ladies around thought of what happened?
