I would probably have stopped my child playing with them after the first investigation, and distracted them with the whole meat buying thing.

Wwyd in this situation?
And I'm not having a go at all @Olive Oil as I am often tired and cranky too! but I'm also surprised that over such a minor thing that people would
a) walk out before getting what they came in to get (seriously?!?) and
b) not return to the business
People really need to lighten up and not let things bother them this badly. Sure, depending on the tone it "might" **** me off but not to the point of walking out. Especially as, to quite frankly, the kid was playing with something that was annoying and distracting in a place of business.

I think the issue is that the lady serving implied that it didn't bother her and then got annoyed.

Thank ladies, Good to see other point of views.
I'm happy with my actions, I won't be going back because of her tone and there are a million other options in the area. If she was more lighthearted with her tone, I wouldn't have thought twice.
I normally have my kids under control and was initially getting him to stop, I honestly thought her initial comment was like, don't worry, they all do it. I was happy to have him occupied while I made my purchase. The bells weren't annoying me in the slightest
Hope everyone's Saturday is going well

Sounds like both of you were in a bad mood to be honest. No harm done though. Sitting here, I'd say, just let it go and don't be so sensitive, but in the situation id probably have done the same as you.

If DS is doing something naughty in a shop and he didn't stop after I've told him too then it wouldn't bother me at all if the shop keeper said something , unless it was unwarranted , then I would have said something to her
It would have to be pretty huge for me to not go back to the shop
