Yesterday, I came out of a local gas station to see a young child (my guess is under 3) alone in a car, engine running, parked next to my car. Granted it wasn't a hot day and the car was parked in the shade, but still I felt the need to stay there til the mom (or dad) came back just to be sure the kid (baby) was safe. I sat there for a good 3 minutes before someone came back to the car. It wasn't a single parent it was both! Mom comes out with a soda and maybe candy and dad comes out with what looked like beer! SERIOUSLY???!!!!???? Nobody could've just stayed in the car til the other came back? Anyway, I was so disgusted I knew I couldn't keep an even tone in my voice if started to say something to them-AND not being the confrontational type- I drove away.
So my question is: Would you have stayed til the parent(s) came back? Would you have said something to them? Or would you not have even gotten involved?
