No! I won't leave my three week old son unattended at the front of the store! UPDATE ADDED!
Do other stores do this?! Is this a new rule or something?!
For those that are understanding why I was pissed, Thank you! For those not understnading, thanks for your opinion but I would rather not make more work for myself. Not that it's any of your business but I will tell you why I prefer to use my stroller. I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my lower back 5 years ago. I am in pain every single day and do not do things to add to it. Yes, I can hold my son and do what I need to do for him, but it is painful and holding him through the store while getting what I need to get would not be safe and more work for me.
I understand the whole loss prevention thing which is why I would have been ok with being followed through the store or even having my stroller and diaper bag searched after I was done shopping. (Didn't carry my purse today, if I did, they could have searched that too!) I have nothing to hide because I don't steal and am not gonna risk my freedom for some bullsh*t!
Even if I did take my son out, I am not leaving anything of mine unattended while shopping ever! They also need a sign posted saying this is a store policy so I know to take my business elsewhere.
