Banja is fucking STEAMED.
At my grocery store, we often get families with cute lil babies. I like babies, and coo at them. Frankly when it comes to some of my customers, their babies are the only intelligent conversation I'll get from them.
So I had two separate incidents with horrible similarities. The first involved a young couple and their not-even-month-old babbu. Banja is college age, and these kids looked maybe a year or two older than I.
While ringing them out,
the baby started to cry. At that young an age, there is clearly something
wrong. Diaper, hungry, need to fart, I don't know. But the
"father" reaches over to get more things out of the cart and rolls
his eyes before saying to the baby "Shut UP."!!!!
The baby of course continues to cry, and the "mother" reaches over to lightly bounce the carseat before full out WHINING, "Oh my godddd, shut uuuuup! You weren't like this when you were borrrrrnnnn."
I just rang up their groceries in silence. I was fucking FUMING. Who talks to a NEWBORN like that? Meanwhile this poor child keeps crying, clearly needing something.
And then it happened again yesterday.
Different couple, same shitty parenting.
The father this time looked a little older but was about as mature as my
kindergarten brother. He leaned really close to his baby and made these frankly
terrifying "gobble you up" noises. This baby began wailing and his
father goes "REALLY? Last time you laughed your ass off. You're so full of
shit. You're fuckin full of shit."
Nine months old.
To think people like these can pop out kids, and my mother who desperately wants kids had to have a hysterectomy for ovarian cancer years ago. Fuck people.
Sorry for the long rant, this just made me so angry.
Treat your kids right.
