I work in a big box electronics store. It was holiday time, I was working in my department when I spot the cutest little girl, maybe two years old, standing in the middle of the aisle looking lost and upset.
I approached her and asked her if she lost her parents, and she nodded yes. So I called a code Adam over the radio, and as per company policy, stayed where I was with the little girl.
Ten minutes later, someone radioed back saying they found her parents and to bring her to the front of the store.
Once we got there, her parents grabbed her and started blaming HER for running off!
"Oh my god you are making us look like bad parents! This is the second time you've done this today!" Then, to me and my manager: "She does this ALL THE TIME, a few times a week at least."
WTF? You are bad parents... KEEP TRACK OF YOUR KID IN A STORE. When will you learn? When your toddler is kidnapped?
