New normal, cultural thing, generational thing? WDYT?
I was shopping for clothing in a store that caters to the whole family on Sunday and noticed at least three different families throughout the store who allowed their children to run wild, bump into customers, play in clothing racks, scream and cry. Made me want to slap the you know what out of their folks who were oblivious to their kids.
I noticed they were of a different ethnicity, but there were at least two. They were also about my kids' age as parents. I couldn't believe how they ignored their kids, but when one tried to run between me and a clothes rack I put a grinding hault to the situation, looked him in the eye and told him to stop and go back to his parents.
I notice this in grocery stores and clothing stores. Do you encounter people who substitute the store for going to the park and allowing their children to burn off energy?
