Are you THAT mom?

 Seriously, I don't know what it is about the grocery store checkout, but why does it make some parents the laziest parents in the world? Newsflash, I'm NOT a babysitter. Your child picking up giant glass bottles is NOT "helping" me or cute in any way. When your child insists on scanning items, and you refuse to acknowledge my asking for your help (ie, watch your own child) it's NOT my fault if something gets rung up twice. Your child screaming and flopping around on the floor is not cute, either, and it's NOT my mess to deal with. Please stop treating me like I'm your nanny. Corral your children and let me do my job. I will do it quicker and more efficiently, so you can go home. I didn't birth these children, I'm not watching them so you can let them do whatever they want, while you zone out or browse tabloids.

Vent over.

do you feel better? lol 

i  know what you mean though, I see kids acting up all the time in the grocery store. I don't understand how mothers can just ignore it, but they do. My kids walk with me up and down the aisles. My 15 yr old I will sometimes ask her to go and get something if I forgot it a couple aisle back. But my youngest stays with me.

Actually it does. I used to be a cashier and it drove me nuts.

 Why? I'm a cashier, not a nanny. Is it that hard to watch your own children?

I've never seen this. Not that I'm there all the time, but I'd think I would see it a time or two.

Is it that hard to find a better job? Maybe then you won't have to deal with these problems.
