I work in a similar place, and I love it when a child comes to my till. Children buying things by themselves are some of the most polite, considerate and helpful customers I ever have to deal with. I personally love children once they are old enough to be capable of communicating clearly. They have genuine passion and enthusiasm for things that interest them and, with a little guidance, can achieve things that adults do not have the will power or patience for anymore.shintakie10 said:I know all the evidence that shows you really shouldn't hit kids, but every time I'm stuck in a checkout line behind some dimwitted parent who is tryin really hard to negotiate with friggin Timmy the 5 year old to not throw the groceries all over the floor (or worse I'm the guy behind the checkout counter tryin to ring up the stupid SoB) I always have the same reaction. Will someone please smack that child so we can get on with our live and I can just pay for my damn candy bar.
However, I despise children that cannot communicate yet. I am aware that this is not their fault, but I can't stand it. They don't understand what I am saying, cannot tell me what they want and should be kept away from anything their guardians are not willing to pay for.
Why? It seems like a genuine fear. I took care of my elderly Grandparents for several years and I would not like to do the same with a disabled child who can't communicate.lacktheknack said:And... what if it comes out missing an eye? Or a leg? Or part of its brain?
Just the thought of caring for such a creature fills me with dread.
Words can't adequately convey how offended this statement makes me.
