This cracks me up.
Was at the shops earlier today with my nephew and my mum. We're just walking around, picking things up here and there, when I realize there are two kids running back and forth through the butcher's section. They were probably brothers, about six and eight.
I wouldn't have even noticed them if it weren't for them going to their mum and back, repeatedly, with different chicken products. One would have an entire chicken, but would return it to the fridge, then come back with a tray of drumsticks, and this went on for five freakin' minutes. Just these kids walking back and forth with serious expressions on their face as they carry poultry to their mother, get rejected, and swap it for another chicken. I was bewildered and amused for some reason.
Then they start screwing around with a trolley (shopping cart, whatever) and dancing in the middle of the aisle and I say something. Naturally, ten seconds later we're engaged in a game of hide and seek/tag in the middle of the shops. You know how it goes.
So I'm being an idiot, chasing these kids around the store, and some silly old bat tries to tell one of the kids off. We totally listened to her and suddenly became super-serious and stopped having fun, going back to shopping in dreary silence. No, for real.
Interestingly, their own mother didn't give a damn and she was laughing as she waved goodbye to me afterwards, thanking me.
But my own told me off. I got scolded for running in the grocery store! Waaah~! :C
Just kidding. Since when have I ever let that stop me? Bah!
How old am I again? Uhhh...
(My nephew was grumpy at me for running off too! I bought him ice-cream though, so we're cool.)
