Ignorance in wal-mart.

So, I was at wal-mart and I went to get a buggy [yes, i'm from the south, we do not call them carts they are buggies! lol.] When I walked to the buggy, noone was even remotely around me, as i'm backing up ready to swing the buggy the way to push it all of a sudden there are two children there who look to be about five, I said excuse me and this mother comes rushing over and tells them to get back with her because if "that lady hits you with that buggy we are going to have problems." I just stopped, glared at her momentarily to see if anything else was going to come out of her mouth and it didn't so I went about my way. My thinking is.. yes children wonder off sometimes that's understandable, but you were OBVIOUSLY far enough away you had to "rush" to them so why didn't you just stay closer? I in no way intended to just hit her children with my buggy and go off.

I was born and raised in Texas and we call them buggies.  *L*

OP - I make sure the kids are holding my hands because I can't seeing kids running around so close to a parking lot with no parent around.  It scares me to pieces.

      I have two wal-marts near me, I only shop at one which I must say is very clean. The other however.. I just took a friend there once I didn't even go inside so I can't say how the inside is but their was literally paper everywhere in the parking lot. huge sections of newspaper.

 I never let my children wander around a store like that.
