Dear Lady at Wal Mart,
I suspect you saw me eyeballing your cart today. You know, the extra large one, with the capacity to seat 3 children instead of just one?
I noticed you had your son in one seat. He looked to be about 4. One seat was holding HIS SNACK and the other seat was empty.
Did you know those carts were made for holding 3 children? And while you are using it to hold your son and HIS SNACK, there may have been a lady walking around the store with, oh, I don’t know, SEVEN children, mumbling under her breath about how there is a perfectly usable 3 person cart rolling around holding your son and HIS SNACK.
Now, I know individual size bags of Goldfish Crackers can be hard to handle, what with their tendency toward hyperactivity and all, and since it was nap time, those crackers were probably cranky and whiny and all manner of unmanageable, but I’ve heard tell that 2 year old girls and 11 month old babies can display the self same behavior, and they are, you know, HUMAN.
So, I was wondering if the next time you go to Wal Mart you could give a gal a break and leave the 3 seat carts for occupants with actual seats as opposed to bar codes.
I bet that lady with the seven children would appreciate it mightily.
