Why don't you just put him in a bubble?

let me start by saying that I don't enjoy going out while I'm sick but sometimes there is something I really need and have to. I also don't like taking my kids to the store when they are sick but I live in the middle of nowhere with no family and friends so they have to come with me. Also, I'm sure there are more germs on the stuff you touch in the store than my child and I'm sure I wasnt the first sick person to walk into the store today. Now to my story

I walk in the store with two of my kids who are still a tad bit sick but not to the point where they can't be out in public. I grab my ome thing that I went in for and head to the checkout. There was a couple with their two year old already there and the dad was holding him. One of my kids must have coughed and the mother overheard and she started reaching for her child and the husband was like he's fine. And she kept reaching, turned to me and said "are your kids sick?" when I responded yes she grabbed her kid said he can't get sick and bolted for the door. The husband was said I can't believe she just did that and you could tell he was aggrevated. The cashier asked why he couldn't get sick and he said she just doesn't like dealing with him When he gets sick. He has only been sick three times in two years. I don't like dealing with my kids when they are sick either but it's part of being a parent. Me and the cashier couldn't believe what we saw. Wow!

And, how presicely does she expect him to build ammunities???  Immunizations do not cover everything!!! Sounds like someone needs to put on her "big girl panties" and DEAL WITH IT!!!!  Kids get sick!!  You can't stop every little germ from getting to them!!

Exactly what I wanted to say to her before she did 0 to 60 for the door with child in tow.

I will admit it annoys me when parents take their kids out sick.
We went to this festival and the kids behind DD in this ride were steady coughing and runny nose! DD ended up sick a few days later, then I got it!

I guess in the story I'm just kind of glad that the husband thought it was ridiculous too.

Well that is understandable but regardless if I'm sick or not, a trip to the grocery store is necessary. I wouldn't bring my kids to a public event if they were sick.

My kids have awful seasonal allergies, so we have run into people freaking out that they are "sick." I don't even give a response when they ask. If the kids have a fever or are oozing green gunk from their noses, I try my best to keep them home (or strep or something). If they are sniffling, sneezing, and coughing, it's allergies.....

I can't stand germophobes. I know a woman who seriously thinks her kids are sick weekly. She also runs to the doctor every time they are exposed to anything and demands antibiotics for every sniffle....drives me nuts...
