Do You pay that much attention to other people when you are out and about ?

I've been a Cm member since '06. I see posts daily from an OP referencing what they *saw* while they were out at the store or running errands .

When I am out shopping and getting errands done the last thing I am doing is paying attention to others.

I don't watch people put their kids in their car seats. I don't watch  how they treat them in stores. I don't watch how they react if their child is doing something they don't like . 

Do You ????

These posts where the OP talks about what they have seen  done, or not done, is baffling .

I have my own family to take care of,  so the last thing on my mind , is to notice what another parent is or isn't doing in public .

I am a people watcher by nature, so yes I do.

Yes, I am very observant of what others are doing because I'm a survivor.

I like to theorize that what they "saw" is in fact what they themselves do.  lol

 Yes, I watch other people. My whole purpose for going out isn't to see if people are doing things wrong but I do notice my surroundings. Walking around completely oblivious to what other people are doing is a good way to get raped, robbed, or otherwise harmed. If I see someone being unusually stupid then I will probably mention it to DH and laugh abou it.

 Unless they are doing something out of the ordinary or if they are loud, I don't notice anyone else.

Yes. I am observant of my surroundings. When I'm out and about, that includes people.

I don't pay attention at all.  I hate shopping.  The quicker I can get out the better.  I don't waste my time watching people, I've got better things to do with my time.

No, my boys won't let me. They are always into something and I have to keep my eyes on them at all times.
