I was walking into a Joann's fabric store, picking up some goodies for a project, when a man, a woman, and two very small children were leaving. It seemed she was either the children's mother or the man's girlfriend.
As they were approaching the doorway to come outside, I heard the woman say in a very harsh, loud, and exasperated voice, "GOD!! I can never get any shopping done with these kids around!!!" It was venomous.
I was shocked, not that she would feel that way, but that she would say that in front of those tiny babies (maybe 3 or 4 years old?), and I was aware of being sad for the kids to have to deal with a person like that, saying those kinds of things about them, in front of them.
But I promptly got on with my errand and didn't think too much about it after the initial 'Whoa! That's crazy', reaction I had.
Cut to two days later...
