Overheard in the Electronics Department at our local Walmart,
"How would you like your own headphones for the meeting?"
My attention caught, I look up to see a 3-year old in the shopping cart then hear him say in a high whiny voice, "I don't want to go to the meeting." And he starts to cry.
Mama says, "Oh, it's ok, we're not going today."
And he says, "I don't ever want to go."
And I think, first, "things have not changed in the 45 years since I was a 3-year-old," and secondly, "wait a second, he gets headphones at a meeting? Why does he get headphones to listen to something else at the meetings and I didn't? What a ripoff!"
