I was sitting the HIGI station taking my blood pressure when a boy that was about 8 years old (he said this at one point) went over to a bin that had movie theater box type of candy and said to me that he was getting a bunch of it and mumbling something about birthday money. He proceeded to take a nearby box and begin loading it up with boxes of candy. I thought to myself he might be getting that if he is shopping with his Dad, but no way if he was with his Mom, but let’s see what happens next. He then took the box and tried balancing it on his head and almost dropped it, then went an aisle over and disappeared down the aisle.
Less than a minute later he returned with the box and started unloading the candies out of his box and back into the bin except for about a dozen boxes the disappeared around the next aisle again. He was much less skippy on the return trip and dumped all of the boxes back in the bin and left the box. He next went down the frozen food aisle above and opened the door, told a nearby gal he was going to be a freezer item and hopped in the freezer and shut the door. The gal just sort of shrugged her shoulder and walked on. He jumped out and I think he was going to go back in and I pondered getting up and having a chat with him about how unsanitary and dangerous that was (my son would have a time out at then end of the aisle and have to sit in the aisle I was shopping in), but then Mom (or it could have been Grandma) rounded the corner and his hand left the door and he straightened up, strolled down the aisle and started talking to her a mile a minute and she just calmly walked beside him and didn’t hear her say a peep.
I had to retake my blood pressure after that.
