(A mother is chasing her 5 year old around the store because he can’t have what he wants. After chasing him for a few seconds and yelling at him, she turns to me.)

Customer: “Can you tell my son you don’t want him in your store?”

Me: “Um, I don’t know if that would–”

Customer, to her son: “See! The man says you’re bad and have to get out of the store!”

Son: *leaves quietly*

Me: *speechless*
