Just need to have a bit of a rant. I work as a cashier at a grocery store, the other night a lady at the register didn't have enough to pay for everything and needed to put back some waffles (happens all the time). The lady told her son (kids was around 7/8 but the size of an 11/12 BIG kid) he refused and started screaming "no no no I don't have to listen to you" and running around the registers. This lady just stood there looking at myself and another cashier say "he never listens" and looking to us to take them from him. A manager was brought into the situation, same problem, the manager told the boy and his mother that security would be called, more to scare the kid than anything. The mother smiled the boy screaming "I don't care". I was finally able to get the bag away from the boy ( a hard task to do when dealing with a strangers kid, your at work, and don't want to over step). That little F***er punched me in the chest (didn't hurt) and then KICKED me in the knee hard... I have a bruise. Any way my rant is more to ask how can any mother stand around watching her child act like that (in public no less), stand by as he assaults not only an adult but a female, disrespects her and wounder why he doesn't listen. That lady is going to be in BIG trouble when that boy gets a bit older, he was already up to her shoulder at 7/8 and a big boy to boot. If she comes in and it happens again would it be wrong for me to tell this lady "No sh*t he doesn't listen take control of your kid and teach him some discipline"? I hate women like this!!Answer Question
Sounds like the boy runs the show at their house. If he hits you, a stranger, hard enough to leave a bruise, imagine what he may do to her.

I would be utterly humiliated if this was my child. I would apologize to you when he first started this behavior and we have left the store immediately and I would have torn his butt up.
