Leaving a child in the car

Do any of you do this while you go into a store? Scenerio: You pump gas, then pull up to the front of the store, lock the car doors, run in and pay, the run back out. Say in a situation where lo is asleep. Personally, I have never done this, but have seen others do it so I am curious. I am not talking about going into a grocery store, but really only a gas station, somewhere that when you walk in, you are still viewing your vehicle. Any thoughts??

I've done it. And I don't feel badly for it, either. Better than getting them both out and having my toddler run off.

Yes, I do, but only when I go to a gas station, which is rare because I don't have a car. I borrow my SO's or my mothers truck sometimes.

I will every once in a while as long as I can see them and as long as my 11 year old is in the car.
