Eta: people left their kids in the store all the time to go shopping. The longest was for 1.5 hours. I ended up calling security and reported him as missing. If someone kidnapped that child the mother would have blamed me for not being more watchful

This happened to DH the other day. Except they were in the supermarket and DS said he had to go and then had an accident. He usually tells us and we have time to take him. We do take him straight away every time but he just didn't give enough notice. Obviously not having anything with to clean it up with DH notified staff and offered to mop it up for them if they gave him the mop and bucket.
I've been on the other side of it too. I used to work in Big W and this lady came through my checkout with a puppy. Not a guide dog and not just purchased as I asked making conversation with her. Well her dog peed in my checkout aisle. She just shrugged it off, paid for her things and left.

Do you always clean up after your kids when out?
Yes I do or at least attempt too
Last year dd2 power chucked in the line at target I started to clean it up but the lovely manager came over and stopped me she cleaned it up so I could take her home :-) such a lovely lady
I saw similar happen in best n less this poor girl begging her mum to go to the toilet and the mum just telling her to wait and kept shopping 😡😡😡 the poor thing saying mummy please please I don't want to wet myself, I felt like slapping that mother !!!!
Dd2 always picked the most inconvenient time to need to go to the toilet it drove me mad but I would always stop what I'm doing and take her

No way would I just bolt from the shop leaving my child's pee puddle on the floor.
I'd alert a shop assistant and ask if they had something I could clean it up with (and of course apologise).
A few months ago my DS was sitting in the trolley holding a bottle of hand soap in Coles. He dropped it on the floor and it cracked and some soap spilled onto the floor. I immediately alerted a staff member because it was very much a trip hazard. They weren't too thrilled and I got the eye roll, but I felt I did the right thing
