Had occasion to shop at Target yesterday. I have the beginnings of a cold and all that encompasses, so I was already in a not very good mood. Fortunately, I still had my goo ehellion hat on or things would have gone badly for me.
I hate when parents ignore a child who is asking them a question. And I hate even more that the child thinks if he or she keeps asking the question, Mom and Dad will give him a direct answer.
Somehow I got stuck beside or behind the same people no matter what aisle I was in or how far I went to get away from them. (Obviously, I didn't go looking for Nyquil in the men's pajama section, but I was considering it
The parents were discussing whether they should eat home or go out and the child, who was clearly exhausted kept repeating "Mom, are we done yet?" "Mom, are we done yet?" I was SO glad when I got to the checkout line because I want6ed to scream at them "For Crying Out Loud, answer the baby!" I understand that this might have been one of those situations where a child was being ignored for bad behavior or to teach him to wait, but really, twenty five minutes of "Mom, are we done yet?" Had me and other shoppers ready to ring around these yabbos and scream at them.
