We didn't find one at Toys R Outragous, but we did find one at Circut City, and it works just great. Tiny, has a belt clip, and will hold 12 CD's and fit neatly in his pocket. Yay!
But let's get back to Toys R A Multi Million Dollar Business... okay, we didn't have luck with the CD case, but we were looking around a bit, cause well, we don't have kids, so Todd and I can be the kids.
We're looking around and this woman comes in with three children. Clearly children have been promised this trip, and have been badly dragged around the mall and all sorts of boring adult stores, on the idea that if they were good, they would get this treat, a trip to Toys R More Than You Can Afford For The Really Good Ones.
We all know my tollerance for bratty children, but you know what? when I go into a freaking toystore, I fully expect that there will be children and they will behaive like children! I know darned well that the Toy Store is one of the Few Huge Bribes Parents have. "We have to go look at plumbing supplies!" Tell me a kid that's going to rejoice over that news? So, how does Mommy and Daddy get them to go and not run around destroying things? They tell them, "And if you're good, Mommy and Daddy will stop at Toys R Ridiculous!"
Well, so we're dodging these three children who are running up and down the isles, all happy and giddy. I give them one thing, they weren't grabbing and throwing things around, they were being more like cats. You know what I mean, right? "I have to look at action figures NOW... no, I have to look at dolls NOW! Oh, wait, I must check out the videos, NOW!" Ready, set, go.
Well, there is a clerk stocking stuff, who proceeded to yell at the kids to stop running. I could see that, for safeties sake, I really could, although I think her energy would have been better spent trying to teach herself to crap nickles, but I could see it.
What I couldn't see was her coming up to me and yelling at me to control my children. And, when I explained they weren't mine, I could see even less why she felt she had to tell me and Todd (in a very loud, obnoxious, whiny, voice) how much she hated children and why she felt the store should not allow them inside.
HELLO? It's a damned TOY STORE!
And thus, my faith in mankind continues to slip further down the tubes.
