He was handicapped and he knocked over a rack of shoes at Nordstrom’s. The manager of the store became irate. It was opening day. The crowds were large. The owners were in the store. The manager stared for a moment, then curtly said, “get him to pick them up.” The boy froze. The sister paused. The nearby shoppers were stunned.
