Bowling For Breadwinners

| Massapequa, NY, USA | Family & Kids, Wild & Unruly

(I work at a dollar store in the area where I pack out boxes for a summer job. I am assembling plastic cups in the children’s section when I hear a large bang behind me. I turn around and find a child holding a heavily-loaded shopping cart loaded inches away from my legs. With all that weight, he could have severely injured me. The cart apparently hit the box I was packing out from.)

Customer: “Mommy! I almost hit him!”

Customer’s Mom: “Don’t worry sweetie. You’ll get him next time!”

(I never asked to work in the children’s aisle again!)
