My youngest came up with this idea while we were shopping on Saturday.
When we are shopping, we inevitably split up for part of the trip. The girls go one way and the boys go another. The plan is that when one lot finishes they phone the others to find out where they are and then go and find them.
But there is one problem. The buildings that hold all of the "girly" shops are built in a way that blocks mobile phone signals.
I had always thought that this was coinsidence.
Young son thinks otherwise.
A phone call at the wrong moment totally ruins a sale, doesn't it?
And what if the girls think "Ooh, maybe we should check with dad before buying these lovely things"? No signal - no call - ah well, let's just buy them then!
It all makes terrible sense to me!
What do you think?
Is this a widespread phenomenon? Are "Victoria's Secret" and "Target" cellphone proof? Are some gadget and tool shops built in a similar way?
Is it the buildings or do the stores have jamming equipment installed?
Let me know, this could be big!
