Several years ago, my sister told me about a trip to Wal-Mart with her son. She said he threw a fit in the toy aisle so she picked him up and carried him out, him screaming the whole way. When she attempted to put him in the car, he flung his arms and legs out wide while he screamed, "NO! HELP! THAT'S NOT MY MOMMY! SOMEBODY HELP!!!!" I laughed. a lot. I thought it was hilarious.
Until we took the Goofy One to Best Buy. and I told him I was taking him to the car for his behavior. and he threw himself away from me screaming, "NO! YOU'RE NOT HITTING ME ANYMORE!!!" and then screamed all the way out to the car.
To my sister: I'm sorry I laughed. I'm only giggling slightly now. at yours. mine's not funny.
To the rest of you: If you see this child out in public screaming that he is abused, as tempting as it is, I promise you he's not.
