This morning at Walmart, I plopped Cam down in an aisle to play with his favorite toys as I sat across from him on a low shelf. I had noticed a clerk doing some stocking and a few minutes later she came walking down the aisle:
Clerk: Can I help you with something? (irritated look on her face)
Kelly: No thanks. I'm just letting him play.
Clerk: Well, would you mind not sitting on my shelf? (very snippy like)
My thinking: She probably recognizes me as "the girl who brings her kid here all the time just to sit and play with toys". Yes, I have absolutely no intention of buying any of the toys Cam plays with (am I really going to spend $59 on a talking Elmo doll???). Maybe I should rethink my abuse of the free play time, but I highly doubt there is a "no loitering" rule for the Walmart toy aisle.
