Here’s one for the parents among you:
You’re shopping at MalWart with your two-year-old kid. Your child is a little fussy, and crying about something—not an unusual state of affairs for a kid that age.
Some stranger gets annoyed by your kid’s crying, tells you to ‘shut her up, or I’ll shut her up for you,” grabs the kid, and slaps her across the face four or five times.
What would you do?
(If I had been in that spot with my kid….well, let’s just say he’d not quite look as unblemished for his mugshot as he does in the one you’ll see when you read the article. Yes, crying kids can be annoying—and trust me when I tell you that the parent is usually way more annoyed than you are—but you Don’t. Touch. My. Kid. Ever, unless you want to find out the extent of your medical plan’s coverage. )
