We were walking by this mom and about 5 year old little girl in the grocery store. The little girl had a little plastic mega phone with her mouth all over it, sticking her tongue in it, and putting the mouth piece in her mouth. No big deal...Then, as I turn back around I see her mom stuck it on a shelf and walked off. My Ds tried to pick it up. Now the store is going to pick it up, stick it back in the toy section, and some other kid is going to get it. If they don't grab it before then! That's so gross, especially considering all the sickness going around now.

Second one I saw today was a 2 year old girl walking around outside in a t-shirt while her parents were in coats. It was FREEZING. DH and I were shivering IN our coats.

Before anyone says I am a nosy bitch. No. These are the first I've seen in a long, long time, and they were obvious because they were both right in front of me.

And that is why I don't purchase toys like that for my kids. If it isn't rapped in original packaging, my kid isn't using it.

Many parents do not dress their kids appropriately for various reason. It sucks when you see and obviously cold child freezing their ass off

Everyone knows that more then likely if you buy a toy like that a kids mouth probably was all over it. Just like hats ppl try those on all day an could be full of lice. Not saying id let my dd do that to a toy but jsut saying.

See! I'm not crazy for washing toys that don't come in a box! Dh looks at me like I'm insane, but I've always thought about kids hands on stuff and how dd likes to chew on everything. Is it sad that I feel validated?

Germs and such don't live on surfaces for long. Probably by the time another kid gets the megaphone the germs and such will all be dead.

Maybe they were trying to teach their kid a lesson on fighting the coat. I did that with my 2 year old, but I always at least brought it with us.
