GETTING MORE TALE #581: Attention Walmart Shoppers
On June 10 2017, Mrs. LeBrain was at the Walmart at Fairview Mall looking for Transformers for her husband (me). She came home with an injury so bad she was immobile for the rest of the night.
She already has mobility issues due to numerous falls and fractures, but June 10 she aggravated her sciatica. Some idiot was there with two kids, but too busy texting to notice what was about to transpire. The baby was seated in a shopping cart, and a young boy had control of the cart. Mother was deep in texting. You can see it about to happen can’t you? Kid hits my wife in the leg with the cart, then does it again.
Jen says to the lady, “Would you mind watching your kids?”
The lady responded with the very typical, “Why don’t you mind your own business.”
“It is my business! Your kid hit me in the leg with your shopping cart, twice!”
There’s a baby in this shopping cart, remember!
The lady then said to the kid, “Stop that.” She didn’t offer an apology.
When Jen got home that’s when the nerve pain really kicked in. We managed the pain the best we could through a very sleepless night and went to the doctor (emergency appointment) the following day (a Sunday). All that because some kid wasn’t being minded by his distracted mother.
People, we’ve bitched about Walmart shoppers here before, but Walmart’s not to blame. It’s the idiot parents, and this is nothing new. Back in Record Store Tales Part 29, we recalled the dad who didn’t care about his kid that just demolished the country section. People, watch your kids. It’s not hard, and if you do such a poor job that your kids cause injury to someone else, maybe you should have got your shit together before having kids.
