She explained in the post: “But by now I'm properly blubbering and saying I'm sorry and that I don't want them to think I'd try and steal it etc.
“They were very kind, reassured me it was probably a customer who'd picked it up and offered me a cup of tea.”
The woman said she was left feeling “pathetic” after crying at the incident, but other Mumsnet users reassured her.
One person wrote: “Sometimes it’s just a combination of things that can set someone off, isn’t it?
“The incident itself might not have been enough to make you cry on its own, but if you’re hot and bothered and you’re hungry and trying to wrangle a buggy and you’re having this weird conversation in front of other people and you’re starting to question your own sanity and etc etc etc and it all gets too much.”
