I hate when people use their children to steal. An adorable kid walked up to my register without any parents with a toy. I rang it up and the total came to $3.97 or something. He said "But I only have a dollar." and gave me a little pouty face. I told him I couldn't give it to him if he didn't have the money, so he turns round and shouts "Dad, it didn't work! She wants the rest of the money!" Then this man comes from around the corner and yanks the kid by the arm to another register.
It’s amazing that people will see a kid yelled at or manhandled by a parent and say “It’s not my business, you can’t tell someone how to raise their kid” but if someone lets their son wear a dress it’s a public discussion.
