    Oh sweet jesus, you have NO IDEA how many times I’ve wanted to do that very thing!!!

    • Probably about as many times as I have. I think the parents who let their kids just run like wild animals through the store need it the most. Nothing like hauling a 2,000 pound pallet of bleach down the aisle only to have some hyperactive 8 year old run right out in front of you. Hell, who am I kidding, the high school age kids are just as bad. We’re apparently the only teen hangout in town…

    Life in the slow lane! I’m sure the checkers there have seen variations of this a few times. I’m sure there were more than a few people that wanted to slap the fur off my littlest one’s face. He was one to make a huge scene by throwing himself on the floor to kick and scream. I do not miss those days.

    I hope for a follow-up story on how Buster hurts himself with those extra-extra small condoms!

  3. So many annoying people … so little time. Actually, Garry has a bumper sticker that says “So many pedestrians, so little time.” I wouldn’t survive in retail, not for five minutes. I understand why you work nights!

    • I’ve seen those bumper stickers before. They would be a hoot to have on your car while driving through a college campus or a store parking lot… where pedestrians believe they have the inalienable to cross wherever and whenever without getting run over, because you know people always follow those 5 mph speed limit signs. Hmmmm, I wonder if a “So Many Possums, So Little Time” bumper sticker would be a marketable addition to my store?

      You wouldn’t believe how many thoughtless parents drag their babies and toddlers to Mecca at ungodly hours… and naturally, they’re pretty short tempered losing nap time. We close at midnight, but I’ll bet the 24 hour stores see it even in the wee hours..

  4. DK you are my hero, well done!!! Sorry Buster… I think moving to another town or to another planet could be an option LOL

    I was at a restaurant the other day and a kid kept running around and screaming. Did the parents try to control him? No. Blame the parents for sure.

    I bet this is one week Buster wishes he’d merely been horribly killed 🙂

  6. Merbear74 says:

    Oh, I see what you did there….nice.

  7. Piglove says:

    Amen. Bravo. Well done. Mom/dad tell me about their experiences when they go together. OMP – If I acted liked that in public, I wouldn’t be able to snort for a week! XOXO – Bacon

  8. I did that vocally yesterday to a group of teens in McDonald’s yesterday after one of them tried to walk through me and nearly knocked me down. There was no one else near me. He kept walking and didn’t even look back. Some days I feel invisible; apparently yesterday, I was. Sign…

  9. I’m seeing fewer badly behaved children in my city. It just isn’t acceptable anymore. I understand that taking a toddler out in public is like going out with a wild chimp, just because they are active. But active doesn’t have to be bratty. I nipped the brat mode in the bud with the tots in my family. And no, I didn’t beat them. I just let them know they were jerks.

    • That attitude is sorely lacking here… especially among our customer base at work. With the way they allow their kids to run around the store with wild abandon, I wonder if they ever get the chance to be active when they’re not out in public…

  10. gentlestitches says:

    Ah yes. A very apt visual description of that famous parenting style “complete ignore” How very funny to see this applied. HaHaHa! Also why is that when one is buying something a tad embarrassing, the shop assistant ALWAYS bellows out the name of the product. Perhaps you have just invented “Buster’s Law?” 😀

    • LOL! I think Buster’s Law might be more apt to describing what happens to animate objects who wander out into the road. Poor possum… hey, at least he can brag about being forked! 🙂

  11. Sometimes the kid is kicking off because they’re autistic or something and are not coping with a sensory over-load. However, even then the parents are responsible for actually looking after the kid and not just ignoring them. I honestly think that there should be a written exam before people are allowed to reproduce, and not just the practical.
