grocery shopping is one of my favorite things to do. it is normally a huge stress reliever but when taking little K with me i want to pull my hair out. the past few weeks he has been with me on all my shopping endeavors and i notice more and more all the people that come talk to him. and let me say he isn't a pleasant person to take to the store with you. he yells ugly words at the top of his lungs, hits, and pulls everything off the shelf. for some reason some of the people who work at kroger and publix always like to come up and talk to k to "help" me. i'm totally grateful for the help but here are my 3 most recent experiences:
kroger: k was yelling so a lady comes up to him and says "santa clause is just around the corner. you better be good so he can bring you everything you want!" what? are you kidding me? please don't say that stuff to my kid. you don't know me.
15 min later at publix: k was once again pulling things off the shelf and this lady walks up to him and starts tickling him and telling him he should be nice to mommy. well k smacks her hand. i finally saw her and said "he doesn't like people in his personal space. please step away from him." but she continued. of course he smacked her hand again. again, are you kidding me. please have respect!
today at publix: same lady from before came over to "check" on little k and started tickling him. i said "please don't touch my son. he isn't happy today and he is hitting alot." she still didn't care and started talking and tickling him. k smacked her hand. so she goes into this big lecture with k about how hitting is mean and wrong. lady, get a clue! leave my son alone. i appreciate your help but you aren't listening to me! DON'T TOUCH MY KID!!!!
anyone else have any crazy stories of people feeling like they can just treat their kid as their own? ridiculous. this is blowing my mind. i have more experiences that are hilarious but these were my most recent and crazy.
