Adventures in shopping , auh..! Rings Walmart. To mind..! The bulging colorful span-dex , the casual conversation and intellect bedazzles me ..!

To interact with humanoid like creatures , obviously not of my planet..,!
But then , there is always the expectations of perhaps a bullet..?

Nope , no bullets, just jovial bipod-ial illusions of civilization..!

Eeeeeeeek..! Hmmmm...! Ok , I,ve never seen facial spandex before..! Eeek.!

I must say there has been a time or two that I have had to use the bathroom and I push my cart out of the way and "abandon" it to use the restroom. I do try to leave it where it won't be in anyone's way and I'm never gone for more than a few minutes.
No, this is in no way the same thing. I'm referring to the people who generally park their cart in the middle of an aisle and then run back and forth to it while shopping. I generally consider an cart within 50' of a restroom to be "waiting" for its user. ;-)

NEVER! Corporal punishment is an individual parents choice and has nothing to do with what is effectual or not. I gauge parenting effectiveness on how polite and socially well-balanced a child acts in public and what respect he shows to others and their property. Kids that charge around the store screaming, opening packs of food and food fighting with the salad bar are generally believed by me to have poor or ineffective parents. However, I am not so arrogant to believe my way of parenting is the only right way.

I walked up to a boy roughly 10-12 at a public event because he was sitting alone at a four-person table. I said, "Excuse me" to which he looked me square in the eye and said, "Yes?" I continued, "May my wife and I share your table to eat lunch? It appears to be the only one available." He brightly replied, "Certainly! Be my guest." He was so polite I nearly fell over. As we sat and opened our food, he pulled out a FOUR-by-FOUR (16 squares) to a side Rubic Cube and proceeded to use his phone to time his assembly of one side. No Facebook, no talking to friends. I never met or saw his parents, but my very short visit with their pre-teen son left me very impressed with them as parents. Whatever they did, it works.
