Other people's children

Am working a shift at TKE in the kids' room all day today. I always semi-dread Saturday shifts because some parents just turn their kids loose to do whatever. All that rough handling of the merchandise starts to make me r-e-e-e-a-a-a-a-l-l-l-y nervous. We can't sell something that's been profoundly mauled. Shouldn't that be obvious? And yet it's not my place to ask parents to help their children treat the books respectfully.

So. I'm just bracing myself.

Oh I know that feeling. I don't understand why people think they can let their kids go wild in stores. Blah.

How about: "Listen, you cow, watch your snotty kid with the books! This isn't the friggin public library."

You can erase this if you want.
