Merry Christmas to ALL!

Dear Lady in Walmart who gave me the stinkiest stink eye three times,

I am sorry that we cost you 15 extra seconds in getting to your "Welcome to Grandma and Grandpa's House" doormat. My kids take turns being pirates in the basket of the shopping cart and sharks on the bottom. It does involve me stopping the cart every once in a while to rearrange them into their various designated spots, but I am always sure to pull to the side, so we do not block the aisle. You could have easily walked around us, but instead, you gave us the stink eye, and even moaned loud enough to be sure that we heard you.

At first your unnecessary rudeness and looks of disgust aimed at my children really bothered me and I wanted to say something really rude. Instead I smiled and continued to laugh with my children, hoping that we would not cross paths with you again, as we made our way to check out the Big Wheels.

I hope that your day got better.

And my wild and crazy kids would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas.


Lots of Love!
Lisa

Great picture! I am always amazed by how unCHRISTmas like people are at the holidays. Its about Christ and love and so many people are just not nice.
That lasy has her own issues! Glad you still let the kiddos play. It makes shopping funny!

I love how you turned this around to something positive even though part of me wishes the kids had told that lady that she needs to walk the plank! :) We are living out in LA and sometimes it feels like 75% of people here have a permanent stink eye for no reason at all... but it gives us all the more reason to count our blessings and enjoy every day to its fullest with the same joy those two pirates of yours carry in their little hearts! Love to your family! Wishing you all a Merry Merry Christmas!
