Tempted To Literally Give Money To The Child To Make Them Stop

, , , , , | Right | May 20, 2022

I am a fellow customer in a big box store when the sound of a child shatters my peaceful shopping experience.

Child: *Loudly* “I want a game!”

Father: “Do you have any money?”

Child: “No!”

Silence.

Child: *Demanding* “Buy me a game!”

Father: “Do you have any money?”

Child: “No!”

Silence.

Child: *Yelling now* “BUY ME A GAME!”

Father: “Do you have any money?”

Child: “No! STOP SAYING THAT!”

Silence.

Child: “I WANT A GAME! BUY ME A GAME!”

Father: “Do you have any money?”

Child: “STOP SAYING THAT! I WANT A GAME!”

Now, repeat this scenario, at high volume, in a high-pitched, demanding scream… every few seconds.

You can well imagine how the store emptied of people, in that area as the two parents went about their shopping. Neither of them told the child “no” or told him to use his indoor voice. He was simply allowed to lather, rinse, and repeat for the entire time.

Question of the Week
