I'm doing fine parenting, thanks

Posted By on Wed, Oct 11, 2017 at 9:30 AM

To the retired square grandparents in our local gourmet grocery store. I may look a bit dumpy on the weekend when I go shopping on the weekend but I am accomplished and understand very well that kids sometimes pick stuff up and walk out of stores with it. I noticed my 5 year old daughter picked up a newspaper at the checkout, but before I had a chance to tell her it belongs to the store, you did it for me. And then you had the nerve, when I said I was about to tell her to put it back, to say “I wasn't sure” with that snide, judgemental look as though I was a lower class insect who didn't know right from wrong. Focus on parenting your own grandkids, and keep your rich, entitled, retire out of other peoples business. —Paying Your Pension
