So I’m sitting here at my desk,
minding my own business trying to look productive
when I hear a horrendous sound coming from the hallway near my door.
It's a child.
Not your typical loud crying child,
but rather a possessed, blood curdling, screaming child!
I open the door and glance in the parent’s direction as to look like I’m asking
“If everything is alright”
when really I’m looking in their direction to say
“Really asshole!? You can’t hear that?”
And they are just sitting there ignoring the spawn of Satan like he’s not even making a sound.
WTF? …I hate people like that.
Not everyone can tune out your kid the way you can people.
Not everyone thinks it’s funny or cute.
Not everyone will tolerate it without wanting to choke or punch your child!
Normally I will call you out in public because I’m a jerk like that
and I will tell you to tend to your child or even use my mom’s favorite
“watch your kid before someone walks off with them!”
But I couldn’t do that at work. *insert sad face here* Instead I just had to politely smile, nod, return to my desk and wish chicken pox on the entire family.
Kidding! … Just on the parents.
