Don't let them go

Posted on Wed, Jan 19, 2011 at 12:42 PM

I work in retail and the one thing that bothers me more than annoying customers who complain over nothing are parents who bring in their young children around 5 years and younger, and don't look after them. No, I'm not talking about them destroying my department, I mean bringing them in and just walking ahead of them, letting them fall behind. No turning around to wait for them, no checking on them, just leaving them to be picked up by any sort of freak.

I've seen little ones running after their parents crying and screaming as they walked ahead, talking on their phones, or just yelling at them to hurry up while not stopping. This sort of thing makes me sick!

I remember going into the store and my mother making my siblings and I hold on to the cart, her hand, or our father's hand just so we didn't get lost or anything. There's been enough lost kids in the store, and some of the children are completely terrified! If you're bringing in your kids, keep an eye on them! Hold their hand, stop letting them out of your sight! Some of these poor kids don't deserve to be taken away by some freak-o because you're too fucking lazy to pay attention to them! —Sick of some parents
