.conn23 had her drama a few weeks ago. Then today I was there at lunch, feeling pretty awesome about myself: they had a super cute insulated lunch tote for Wooz that was small enough to fit in her backpack (which is perfect for summer camp now that it's heating up), some nice pasta, all my usual stuff, AND two of those 2 x $50 gift cards for $79.99 deals. (One for McCormick & Schmick's, which is awesome timing because we'll be there for dinner tomorrow, and one for American Girl, just in time for birthday shopping.)
So I put my stuff on the belt, the kid in front of me is whining, and I don't really pay attention because it's just usual kid behavior, and anyway I'm busy texting DH about my gift card score. And then I hear the mom say "No, I won't buy you those. No one needs that many fruit snacks. They're not good for you." And I look up from my phone, and she is fucking scowling at my Finding Dory fruit snacks.
So I'm kind of o_O, but mostly inclined to shrug it off, because I've been fed up with a kid before and maybe said things out of frustration, without thinking. But then he persists, and she continues "No, those things aren't good for you, and I'm not buying them. No one needs all those gummies." What I really wanted to say is "No one should leave the house in those shoes, either, but here you are."
