Default Scold your own kid

So this is something that happened yesterday evening at work and I'm still 'wtf'ing' over it.

I'm on the checkout and a lady walks past with her 2 children (I'd say probably 3/4 yrs old) to leave the store, and she places 2 small broken off pieces of crayon onto the counter and says ''sorry, my child took it from the kids colouring area in the store'' and I'm like ''oh okay, no worries'' and she leaves.

THEN, she comes back into the store and says to me ''actually, can you please get really angry and shout at her for me? Tell her you're extremely angry about her taking the crayons''

....

I refuse ofc, it shouldn't be up to me to yell at a complete strangers little girl.

After asking me over and over to shout at her & with me refusing, she then proceeded to scream at her herself telling the girl that ''the lady is VERY angry with you for taking them'' and turned back to me and said ''can you just shout at her 'STOP IT' for me now?''
I say No again, and she eventually leaves.


But what the hell, it's not my responsibility to yell at someone else's child. If she wants to teach her that stealing is bad then it's up to her, not me.

Do not forget this line.
"would you like to see my supervisor?" unless you are supervisor.
But yeah, some customers are just plain nutcases.

A colleague of mine had a hot chicken thrown at her because the customer was incompetent at reading a price tag.

right... this is the first time I've heard of such a thing, normally most people would just reprimand their own kids without hesitation.

I don't agree that screaming at your child is the way to teach them right from wrong anyway, I've never experienced anything like it before, it was embarrassing to say the least.

I told the duty manager a few minutes after it happened and all she had to say was ''what a weirdo'' over and over lol.

In relation to crazy people at stores, there was this one time a woman who ordered a pizza at our pizza department that screamed at the worker because apparently it's "illegal to reheat pizza".

I'm being serious here.

I've had that happen to me a lot actually. I didn't really think much of it at the time, but yeah, it is weird.

Moms would point to me and tell their kids that if they didn't stop I would get very angry and call the security on them and kick them out of the store. Or tell their kids that I already was angry and calling security..
As I stood there blank faced, because I was neither angry nor happy.

I don't know why they use us as a scapegoat when they could just discipline their kids their own. Heaven forbid they look like the bad guy.

Thankfully here in the south parents don't really hesitate to """discipline""" (I use this word very loosely lol) their kids, there are a always those few though (like in Walmart `-`; ) that don't do ANYTHING when their kid is crying at the top of their lungs.

The problem here is that they don't discipline them hard enough....most of the time I'm like "Really? All your going to do is give them a tap on the wrist? WHAT?" When I was a kid my parents would always spank me if I did something wrong or acted out, even if we were out in public / in stores.

/now your making me sound old Aimee :<

Parents of this generation are incredibly incompetent, is how I feel.

I work at a coffee shop on an end of town away from all schools and residential areas and is instead next to the factories and automall so instead of annoying kids I run into people who can only speak some english (with some really thick accent to back it up). Better than kids screaming imo.

I happen to encounter the opposite. When I was out to buy groceries I happen to see a child opening some pack of chocolates and then a big lady came and then immediately shout at the kid as soon as she saw him. The kid was really frightened and then stood up and then the lady started hitting him anywhere and I immediately called my husband then we reported it to one of the Store employees. The manager then approach them and then the lady is shouting and saying that she will not pay for the chocolates and then she still keeps on hitting the child.

The manager said it's ok if you are not going to pay for the Item but just don't hit the child then the lady was like don't tell me what to do I will do what I want.
And then the manager asked them to go out. That time I felt really sad for the child
I think he was just so excited when he saw the chocolates that's why he opened it.

^ Some people shouldn't become parents.


My mother and aunt didn't let me scold my nephew whenever he was acting up, now he's going through the terrible 2 and is so spoiled that nobody can control him anymore.

This thread reminds me of this little girl and her grandmother coming to the Bakery/Deli.

The little girl (about 6 ot 7) was acting up in the cart. Grandmother tells her to stop, or she won't get a cookie.

Little girl says "Shut your damn piehole."

The grandmother still asked for the freggin' cookie. And we can't deny customers, so...the little girl still got her cookie

I so wanted to go off. You don't reward bad behavior with goodies, or they will abuse that to shit.

"Scold your own (grand)kid."

I actually don't know what to say. The other day, I witnessed something similar to what Summerishere posted but it wasn't because the child was stealing something, it was because the child wouldn't stop crying? A woman was abusing her child, slapping the poor little girl and everything. I wanted to say something, but I couldn't bring myself to do so.. I felt so useless. ;__;
