A real-life Alan Harper.Happened to me once, when it came time to pay I realized my wallet is at home. Luckily it's the garage I always fill up at so they know my face and cars by now. Just went home to fetch my wallet and came back to pay.
That would have been a fck up had I been at another garage.
What an absolute crock of horse dung. So because non-kommin people take issue with the crap that inbred kommin people do, they are kommin too?I think it is an indication of your komminess that you have an issue with this. Only plebs would worry about other plebs are doing.
#modernparenting.If you allow your kids to manipulate you, they'll take full advantage.
yeah some people disappear, become full time helicopters.#modernparenting.
Off topic, but related to that, I have friends that
can'twon't do anything at night because of the kids. Can't go out, can't braai, can't do anything unless it's at their house because it's impossible to get the kids down if they do.
FFS didn't have that problem 10 years ago. Kids went out and fell asleep where ever and would be dragged / carried comotos.
On the plus side both the couples that fall into this trap above are smarter when it comes to shopping with the kids and aways have a tupperware with some biltong or fruit or even break with them for when the kids get hangry.
Yes that is it. In my youth you wouldn't be seen in a shop even eating something you brought with you. Now it's all "instant" this and "fast" that. And shops tolerate it because otherwise they lose clients. So out of respect I choose not to do it as they're kinda between a rock and hard place unless they give express permission.It's a sign of the times, we live in a society of people who want instant gratification and there is no such thing as patience anymore. People think they're entitled to take what they want, when they want it and screw everyone else.
They supply free tasters at Makro? Alcohol can't be consumed in public and only on a licensed premises. Licenses are either for selling capped to the public or consuming on the premises but not for both. Make of that what you want. It's also why restaurants will uncap it for you so you can't take it with you.So the free tasters they supply at Makro is illegal to consume?
I've shopped with difficult kids before, that's the nature of kids. They didn't get everything they wanted. Guess what, next time they weren't difficult. Sometimes it takes as little as a washcloth to amuse a bored child. Stuffing them with the most basic human need shows little to no imagination.Both of you are assuming that I'm giving in, rather than averting a crisis. And if you tell me your kids have never gotten bored in the shop, cried, or otherwise gotten shall we say 'difficult' I'm going to straight up call you a liar. Especially when they are under 5.
Yet you're not law abiding, not really. I couldn't care less about that. For me it's about respect for others. The people snacking in shops are mostly those who don't have them themselves and have to wonder if a customer is going to pay for something every time they see someone eating. It shows a blatent disregard for others.I am not going to apologise for being a law-abiding citizen who has paid for everything I take from a shop. And categorising me in with the criminal element who walk into a shop with the express intent of stealing is discriminatory, biased, wrong, unfair and a whole lot of other adjectives.
You are all moralistic, that is given to making moral judgments, in a self-righteous or judgmental manner.
