I was absolutely floored today at Walmart. This evening I was out running some last minute errands wiht my sons. I had both of the boys in sitting in the carriage, and all of a sudden this little boy maybe 1 1/2 or so walked up and grabbed on to my carriage. He had no shoes on, which irked me as well as his meandering the store. I mean honestly what the hell is wrong with people. It was 45* outside!
So I looked around quickly expecting a freaking out parent. Nope no one in sight. The little boy then let go of my carriage. And started to wonder off. I quickly scooped him up and brought him to customer service. The man there was calling on the walkie talkie initiating Code Adam. When all of a sudden his mother turned the corner with a 6 yr old boy in tow, and says Oh there you are. NO panic, NO tone! NO NOTHING! She was in the toy dept, I saw her. Looking at the toys prior to this, with no small child with her, a good 10 min prior. This kid was on the other end of the flipping store! WTH is wrong with people!?!
The store manager was appalled! I damn near hit the floor. He asked for my information so that the police could contact me if need be, they want to alert them for her negligence. I just couldn't believe this woman, she was emotionless.
I really hope that all turns out ok. The little boy did nothing but nestled up to me when i picked him up. I could have walked right out of that store with her kid and no one would have even given it a second thought.
I wish my walmart baby the best of luck in life along with his brother. I hope they both look out for one another!
