Today we took the ferret on her leash with us to the pet store.  It's a big department store style pet store and people are encouraged to bring their pets along.

So, we are strolling through letting Buffy check things out and quite a few people stopped to say hello.  

One man came up to us who was dishevelled and smelled VERY bad.

I was polite and just hoped he's move on.  He did but as he was walking away my son LOUDLY proclaimed "mommy that man smelled really bad like cat pee!"

Oh dear! I shushed my son and he just said "But he does! He really smells bad!!"

At this point my ferret decided this was the perfect time to pull down an entire row of sweaters off a display and as I was dealing with that, the man turned around.

He came back and said, "I smell? well, at least now I know!"

I just about DIED!

edit for clarification

My son is 7yrs old and has RAD, so his social interactions are less mature.

Reactive attachment disorder (RAD) is described in clinical literature as a severe and relatively uncommon disorder that can affect children. RAD is characterized by markedly disturbed and developmentally inappropriate ways of relating socially in most contexts. It can take the form of a persistent failure to initiate or respond to most social interactions in a developmentally appropriate way—known as the "inhibited form"—or can present itself as indiscriminate sociability, such as excessive familiarity with relative strangers—known as the "disinhibited form". (from wiki) 

*an edit for all those perfect mothers whose children are oh so perfect and assume he was not corrected on his misbehaviour*

My son was corrected on his behaviour.  He is learning how to behave and react to situations in public and how to correctly relate to people.  His special needs do not excuse bad manners, but his special needs to make it harder and take longer to learn.  I have a realistic understanding that at times kids with special needs such as his do not act appropriately in public or age appropriatly.  That doesn't mean I have stopped parenting him.  Walk a mile in someone else's shows before you judge.

OMG! He said well now I know! That means he's been around the smell for so long he's use to it! Which means his house is a mess and smells! Gross!
