>Be me, in supermarket
>Checking out soups and ****
>There's a kid in a cart just a few feet down. He looks five or something but he's still stuffed into the baby seat somehow
>No parent in sight, figure they must have run off to get something
>Decide to take my time til they get back
>Hear a voice
>Look at the kid, he's got this ******
grin. Says it again
>Don't really want to talk to this kid. Just want his parent to come back so I can leave
>"Hey, guess what?"
>Kid still giving me this **********
grin. Says it again
>"You shouldn't talk like that."
>"I'll say whatever I want, stupid."
this kid, I'm out
>Hope he gets stolen
>Walking past when he reaches out and grabs my braid (I have really long hair)
>Pulls as hard as he can, which is not hard at all cause he's five
>Swing around, he knows he's in trouble because he starts crying
>At that moment some little old lady starts coming down the aisle
>She looks concerned because there's a kid going nuts and I look enraged
>"Excuse me, m'am? Could you please get an employee? This boy's been sitting here alone for a few minutes and he's getting really upset."
can't stop crying long enough to call me out
>Grandma leaves and comes back with an employee and a manager
>I'm friends with the employee but we act like we're strangers
>Manager "Excuse me, miss? This lady says you found a lost child?"
>"This carts been here almost ten minutes and no one else has been in the aisle"
>Manager and grandma trying to question the kid but he's just blubbering
>Guy turns down the aisle and sees us all huddled around the cart. Greasey looking dude, holding a bag of chips
>Guy "What are you doing with my son?"
>Manager "This is your child?"
>Guy "Yes, that's my boy Dale."
>Me "He said his name was Kevin."
>The police end up getting called because the kid can't stop crying long enough to verify his own name. Guy rang up his ex wife so she could come vouche for him. Cops get a call while they're there and put the guy in cuffs. When the wife shows up it turns out he's three weeks behind on his child support and was supposed to give the kid back to his mom three days ago
>Last I heard she was trying to press kidnapping and child endangerment charges
