I was in Publix last week, and a mother refused to buy the Trendy Brand of Chips that were being demanded by her nine-year-old-ish daughter, in favor of selecting the exact-same-tasting Less Trendy Chips. The way her daughter was carrying on, you would have thought her mother was buying Chips that Hate Justin Beiber And Cause Body Odor and Acne Breakouts On Purpose. Mom looked at her, arched an eyebrow, and stated: "Less Trendy Chips, or no chips. Your choice." When the whining continued, Mom turned her cart around, took her daughter's hand, and started for the checkout. As they were walking away to the daughter's protest of having her hand held, Mom replied "you seem to be acting like (what I guess was a younger sibling's name), so that's what's happening."
It was wonderful to see.
