Today we had another kid come in with his mother. This kid was about 5 years old and the mother must have decided that she didn't feel like watching him in the store.
This little brat decided that he would destroy everything in his path. He knocked things off shelves, opened up packages, and broke displays.
When one of the employees confronted the mother about this, she replied with "Oh, he's just a bad kid" and continued getting her coffee.
So the employee decided that he would charge her for the bags of peanuts and candy bars that this kid opened. What did the mother do? She decided to argue about it because she didn't think she should be charged, stating again, that he's "just a bad kid".
The funny thing about this was that there were 3 people sitting outside in this mother's car, so this crappy kid didn't need to come into the store at all.
This was one of those times that I wish I had been there, because I probably would have gone all Jerry Springer on this woman.
People, our job description is CASHIER, not BABYSITTER. Watch your kid when they are in a store with you. If they break shit, then YOU have to pay for it. And people wonder why prices are so high. It's because we have to make up for it when you get kids destroying products!
