Toys aisles demolished to shiat after they drop their kids on toy's r us and run off to the movies or something.
Literally abandoning your kids does not mean the staff is going to take care of them, this is not a daycare!

OK, ok, ok.  Now we have given Subby enough grief over the dollar sign thing (maybe 4 or 5 posts more, but they damn well better be Pocket Ninja quality or close to it).

Pretty much every adult activity that's normally conducted in public has been ruined for me from time to time due to children.  But I can't think of anything that's been ruined permanently.

I was at Costco on the weekend and witnessed a passel of young (3-6 yo range) kids running around and playing while their parents ignored them. The whole affair came to a sad end when a couple of them darted out into a busy aisle and were hit by a cart. Not sure of the outcome but I heard the kid screaming for what seemed like 10+ minutes. I'm sure the parents will blame Costco and the shopper who hit them.

Others slammed Nelson for "mom shaming" parents who cannot afford to hire childcare every time they've got to run errands.
"Yes, this is absolutely horrible and that parent is an idiot for not watching their child, but for you to tell people they shouldn't shop for makeup with their children, is ABSURD and disrespectful. Some parents don't have the luxury of going places without their children," another user chimed in.


Why would they be buying cosmetics then? Also mom shaming isn't a thing. There are places where children are inappropriate and you don't get a pass on that because you can't get a sitter.

Double posting - deal with it.

If you want to buy anything at one of those pop-up Halloween stores, you'd better do it the first week they open. Anything cool will be broken beyond belief by kids soon after.

Youtube also got ruined by parents letting their children shiat all over it.
Suddenly you had chinese companies realizing that aiming at kids to explore the publicity would be profitable and you ended up with hundreds of computer generated weird ass creepy videos aimed at children everywhere.

It makes more cents the other way. You don't say Dollar thousands, do you?

I once had an asshole parent bring a stressed, severely autistic child into my workplace. They were attempting some sort of return scam and figured having their kid spazzing would force us to give them what he wanted just to get rid of them. He's sitting there arguing with the sales staff while his kid is sitting there on the floor, still as a corpse and SCREAMING in fear/overload.

Needless to say he is no longer welcome.

I decided that I liked some fairly expensive perfume--it made me smell just like candy, it was awesome--and so I went into some store to try to find the perfume and see if it was as good as all that. I don't wear the stuff but it just smelled so good.

So I go over to the fancy stuff and started looking around.. They had a big display for the perfume, but none there. I lurked around and tried to find some, tried on a few others, etc.

Then I noticed that saleslady watching me. Let's just say that I usually dress like a lumberjack and don't wear makeup, and she was watching me. Every product in that display case was on her face, and she didn't think I looked like a potential customer.

So I hung around good and long, looked at all the makeup, smiled at her but told her I didn't need help, walked around all the display cases and dragged my hand across the glass, looked at earrings, picked a few out, tried on some more perfume. I was driving her crazy; she had to keep circling her counter to keep an eye on me, while appearing to NOT watch me.

then I just left. They didn't have the farking perfume, anyway.

Richard Saunders: Libraries during school holidays., especially those located near/close to Malls.

Not just the unruly and unsupervised kids, but jeez Louise...dropping off 8 yr olds without food, drink, and the expectation they'll properly care for their diaper-wearing toddler sibling?


CSB Time™:

Back in the time the Library System where I used to work opened the Branches until 9:00 PM on Sundays. Every single Sunday both the Main Branch and the Branches located near Malls would have unsupervised minors at closing time.

A policy was enacted stating that the Staff was to identify these unsupervised minors and have them start calling their parents to come pick them up by closing time... and the Librarian-in-Charge had to stay behind with a Security Guard until the parents showed up... whenever that was. Said policy also stated that Child Protective Services was not to be contacted because the unsupervised minors were not to be treated as having been abandoned.

The Librarians-in-Charge decided, unofficially, to start calling the Police 'for our safety, until the parents show up'.... and I understand the policy was finally changed when a new Chief of Police brought to the attention of a new City Librarian the amount of calls the Police Department was receiving from the Library System on Sunday nights.

I also understand the parents are getting warnings and tickets for potential child endangerment.

^This. Never had a problem with my kids grabbing things at stores. I didn't beat them or anything but they knew that if they were touching something without permission then they would be in deep shiat. If I caught them reaching then usually a warning and "The Look" TM would be enough. If my kid was getting loud or out of hand (over-tired and crying, for example) I would pick them up and take them out of the store / restaurant / theater / political rally / abattoir/etc. It's my kid, no one else should have to suffer.

Here's the thing though. Even if your kids actually are wonderfully behaved and completely fine in places that kids are not appropriate and you are aware of the situation and fine with your kids being there it's still wrong.

1)People modify their behaviour when kids are around and even if you are fine with exposing your kids to behaviour language or situations that aren't kid friendly the other people are going to be made uncomfortable by their presence.

2)Another can see your kids at some place that is not appropriate for kids and decide that means that their kids can come with them next time except their kids aren't as well behaved and they aren't as enlightened as you and get standoffish when their kids are exposed to things they shouldn't be.

Heh, bravo! I did something similar at a Blockbuster years ago. I was looking for a video and since it was rainy/cold I was wearing a long jacket. One of the workers there clearly thought I was looking to steal something so he followed me around the store (and was totally obvious about it). For the next few minutes I ran him in circles. After I had my fun I asked him (in a loud voice) if he was following me and he denied it. I then spoke up louder and said "I know why you're following me. It's because I'm JEWISH!" (I'm not but this was in a Jewish part of town and the worker was probably not Jewish at all). The guy turned three shades of red as other folks stared at him before he started backing away. I did not wind up renting a video that night. Good times!

$1300 sounds like the "street value", which would not be appropriate because you can't sell test products.

Actual cost was probably about $20 at most. Probably less.

Someone hasn't been to Sephora in a while. The value is less important than the fact that a kid was allowed to run around unsupervised in a store and wreak havoc.

My friend did something like that while at Wal-mart, except he shouted out, "You're just following me because I'm black!" This got very confused looks from the security guard because my friend is a pasty-faced, freckled Irish guy with red hair.

I once took out a kid in a grocery store that quite literally came running around the corner into the aisle at full speed, and slammed straight into my cart full of groceries, pushing it onto my sandal exposed toes at the same time.  I uttered a few choice words in shock, NOT at the kid, as I was looking down at my toes checking for blood.  An adult that was apparently supposed to be with him appeared and drug him off, not asking if I was hurt. The kid was not hurt as far as I could tell.  They're still pretty spongy around 7 or 8. My middle toe was black and blue for a couple weeks.

That being said, anyone responding to the Sephora employee's post with "can't afford to get a sitter" can't afford to shop at Sephora anyway.

On one hand, it sucks to show up at the art museum and see it surrounded by school buses, because I just know I'm not going to be able to contemplate that Rothko painting in peace.  On the other hand, kids need to go on museum field trips because a lot of their parents will never take them.

It might be that the prices are going up because there was an explosion at a manufacturing facility in New York (see MainTab) which will lead to a decrease / interruption in supply.

To the whining Moms in the article with their "Some parents don't have the luxury of going places without their children,": If you're shopping with the cast(?) and presumably crew at Sephora, you can afford a sitter, nanny, au pair or whatever.

Yeah, it's really up to the parent.  Back in the day, we drove from the coast back to the Midwest - back when every town of any size had a tourist trap - ghost town, dinosaur tracks, natural phenomenon, whatever.  (We avoided the freeway, which with our route, wasn't hard to do.)  We went to plenty of them, but the parents were kind of discriminating about them.  They needed to have at least some educational value to justify it.  Good thing big brother, age 10 was a history nut that was really into Indians at that point.
Dad got kind of a bang out of them, too.
