Going to the store takes even longer because I always have to find someone nice (and whose wife/girlfriend isn't glaring at me) and ask them if they will reach something for me. But I climb the bottom shelf pretty well, too. :-) Oh, and sometimes grab a spatula or such from somewhere else in the store and use it to knock stuff down and then return the spatula when I'm done!
Alllll the time! But its true I can wear between a 2-3 in kids which translates to a 5 in womens and I can't open jars of peanut butter from Sams Club I would literally have to stretch the ligaments in my hands which hurts!
