Going shopping with kids can be a daunting affair because you never know what sorts of trouble you might run into with them being there.
One mother says she was mortified when she found out that her little son had vomited in the supermarket’s aisle while she was scanning for groceries.
She assumed that since she was in a public place, she would get a little help from employees standing there for customer assistance. But clearly, she was wrong.
Not only did she get zero help from anyone, but she was ordered by the staff to clean it up immediately before leaving while other shoppers watched the incident unfold in absolute horror.
The mom agreed that since it was her child, it was her responsibility to look after him and clean the mess. But she also mentioned how people needed to have a little more empathy for her.
She was all alone and to have no one assist and others just watch in silence was humiliating. And for employees to bark orders in her direction just made her feel all the worse.
The incident has gone viral since then and is reported to have taken place in Woolworths in Australia. The management has come under fire for such behavior while the authorities have also intervened to see what went wrong and why the mom was treated in this unfair manner.
Ever since the mother has shared the news with others online, people are just mortifed at how she was treated. No one deserves such disrespect and she had a child with her. Therefore, others should have come forward and assisted her, another person mentioned. What do you think?
