    I do not usually do C&Ps- but this is a story posted today on notalwaysright.com, a compilation of stories from folks that deal directly with customers- casiers, waiters, etc.

    Child: “Daddy! Look at this!”

    (The father comes over to find his child looking at an adult magazine.)

    Father: *to me* “What the h*** is wrong with you? How can you let a 6-year-old boy look at this smut?!”

    Me: *ringing up another customer* “Sir, I’m with another customer right now.”

    Father: *waving the magazine in my face* “He is way too young for this! Why didn’t you stop him from looking at this?” *he starts screaming obscenities*

    (My manager walks by as this is happening.)

    Manager: “Sir, she is a cashier, not a babysitter. It is not her job to watch your child, it is yours. She was doing her job when you came up to scream at her. Now get out before I call the police.”

    (The man looks embarrassed as he leads his son out. A minute later, he walks back in.)

    Father: *mumbles* “I forgot my other son.”

    I was a lifeguard for several years during high school and college at a lake. You would not believe even then how little parenting was atop the minds of many parents.

    And, as a father of a young boy, I always enter a store and just let him do whatever without watching him. :rolleyes:

    I like the screaming obscenities part.

    Why did'ent the kid share with his dad?

    See this is why i should be father of the year. This morning when my oldest son got up I told him that I was such a great dad that when he does not get anything this year for chistmas I'll pretend to be mad at santa.:D:D:D

    Oneshot, just a note from an old man-

    Be nice to your kids. They will pick your nursing home. :p

    Some years back, I was Asst Manager of a game arcade. A lot of moms came to the Mall, and would give Junior a crisp $20 bill and leave him for an hour or two while she went shopping. Heck, y'all know howFAST a 12 year old kid can burn through a twenty!? So he sits on the outside bench for the remaining forty minutes to and hour or more til mom comes back for him. :rolleyes:

    Had one dingbat once bring her kid to me and say, "Please make sure he doesn't leave the arcade while I shop!"
    I told her straight out I was NOT a 'day care' and had NO authority to restrain her kid. Ewww.... she did NOT like that! :D

    Folks find it so strange I have never married or had kids....... :p
    I do NOT need the aggravation.......
