Scourge of the checkout lin

I totally disagree with Mike Jenkinson.

The real scourge of the retail store, shopping mall, or even the farmers' market are the latte lifters that insist on bringing out the newest in baby carriages, that are the size of Volkswagon Beetle.

They seem to have to carry everything in the stroller, and at the most inappropriate, usually the aisle that is the narrowest at the busiest time of the day in that particular store, stop to chat or read intensely the contents list of the latest trendy item.

What is wrong with hoisting the kid's patoot onto your shoulder, or using the shopping carts that the stores were forced to put five point harnesses in for your kids because we were too stupid to supervise our kids in them?

Is the new, 'Volkswagon Beetle' size baby stroller, the new status symble, as the SUV is in the parking lot?

There use to be a time when you did not need to bring half of all your baby's worldly possessions with you and the kid when you went out.

I guess those are the good old days.

Thank youNorm Greenfield
