so you can imagine my surprise today at target when the check out lady (who i have never really liked-by the way) told me my baby was being so loud and it was because no one was talking to her!
i have problems with that on several levels...
- 6 month olds babble, shriek, and grunt because they are finding their voice
- i talk to her all day long every day
- am i supposed to get all my bags and pay quickly so the next person can check out or do i stop and talk to my child and let the cashier woman wait for me to pay? (i probably would have gotten in trouble for that too)
- even if you do have a problem with a parent or baby, don't verbalize it twice, loudly, so everyone else in the line can hear you
my dealings with this woman in the past lead me to believe that a) she's just not a very happy person or b) she doesn't know when to be quiet!
