(This happens when I’m about 5 years old. I have always been pretty well behaving kid and so my mom usually let me to go to toys section to look for toys when she was in the clothes section. The store is quite small so she’s pretty much able to see me all the time. Note the toys section is near the cash registers.)

Cashier: *walks to me* ” Hey girl, where is your mom?”

Me: “In the clothes section.”

Cashier: “She must be worried. Come on let’s go find her”

Me: “But she let me come here.”

(This goes back and worth a while but eventually I follow the cashier and point her where my mom is.)

Cashier: *to my mom suddenly angry* “Excuse me, you can’t let your kids running in the store! We’re not here to supervise these kids misbehaving!”

Mom: *confused* “Did she do something?”

Cashier: “No! But she could have been tearing all the packages and destroying the toys! You parents leave your kids to toy section thinking that cashiers will look after them while you do the other shopping”

Mom: *now getting angry* “Excuse me? You come here to accuse my child for something she hasn’t even done. And for the record I have let her to go and look for toys for the last year now since that’s more interesting to her than having to walk around with me. And I’m not expecting you to take care of my daughter. I can see her from here all the time. I don’t understand how can that be such a huge problem now when it wasn’t before”

Cashier: “You can’t let your kid without supervising! What if she had stolen something?”

Mom: “I told you, I could see her all the time. I’m not listening your false accusations any longer.” *to me* “Let’s go [my name].”

Cashier: *shouts after us* She could have done that!

(Next time we went to the store we heard from another cashier that the woman was fired for causing scenes like that everyday.)
