Suddenly, I Feel Very Sorry For Her Child

| | Right | February 1, 2008

Woman: Excuse me, I’ve lost my child somewhere in the store.

Me: “Okay, I’ll get someone right away.”

(I call in a code yellow.)

Me: “Okay, how old is your child?”

Woman: “She’d just turned three. Ooohhh, what if she’s been kidnapped?”

Me: “Don’t worry, I’m sure that’s not the case.”

(Security comes up to talk to her and she turns around.)

Security: “Ma’am, how many children do you have?”

Woman: “Just one, why?”

Security: “Because your child is on your back.”

(She was wearing one of those harnesses.)

    I feel like whoever wrote the title probably wasn’t the primary caregiver to a child- especially not a stay at home one. This sort of thing happens sometimes. It’s sad but it’s not like anyone is 100% at all times and parenting can take a huge toll on a person.
