Eko I thought of that after she'd turned around but I think our blank stare probably said all we needed to.
I had the same thing happen with DD only last week. I was on one side of the aisle and she was just across from me. Right as some old guy decided to walk past with his trolly she darted across in front of him to get to me (she though he was blocking her from me, instant reaction I would say!!) well I copped it from him didnt I.... how DANGEROUS it was and I should be controlling my child. Yeah, cos she walked a whole 1m.... and if you werent dashing up aisles at the 100kph the store would be much safer too..... and his attempt to ram in between me and a pole in the middle of next aisle was not appreciated either. *&$#%@!!!!!!
A while ago we were shopping with my 2 year old DD who was having a tantrum down the isle with daddy while I was speed shopping ahead. An older woman turned to me and said something along the lines of "you can't go anywhere without someones kid screaming the place down"... My reply was, "oh sorry, that's my child screaming the place down, sorry if it offends you (major sacasm)" she was mortified and spent the rest of the shopping trip trying to make friends with my todder everytime we passed her.
Some people either 1. have no clue about kids and are in for a world of hurt when they have them or 2. have had them so long ago they quickly forget what it's like.
