I went shopping a couple of weeks ago with my DD#1 so that she could stock up on groceries before I brought her back to school.
There was a sample person with shrimp and cocktail sauce. DD#1 looked at me and said "Mom, can I please try one of those?"
The kid is almost 21 years old! I must have done something right when she was a child.
Either that or somehow I scared her off of samples. I wonder what she does when she shops on her own.
Anyhoo -- MOM21SON, I think the policy of asking for parental consent is a great policy and should be enforced.
