Much to my dismay, I had to go to the grocery store today. I am the poster girl for poor college student now so it hit me hard in the pocket book.
So, I do my shopping (got some pretty good deals in the process) and headed to the checkout. In front of me is a lady with her 2 year old son and 6 week old infant. She has WIC coupons. She was using the whole lot at once. I have absolutely no problem with WIC coupons..I have a problem with what she did.
She put the wrong type of cheese in her buggy. She decided to go and get the correct type. That is fine and dandy. She took her 2 year old but left her infant at the end of the checkout line in the infant seat. She walked away and my mouth dropped open. How the hell do you just leave your infant in the carrier at the checkout? The cashier and bagger were just as amazed as I was. When she came back, I told her that was not a good thing to do. That is worse than leaving the infant in a locked car while paying for gas. You left your child in a populated area with strangers.
She gave me a nasty look and left.
I just don't understand people.
