I went to Sam's club today. I was by myself (miracle), and I was picking up two things. Baby wipes and vinegar.
Exciting life I lead.
Anyway, I get in line to pay and the lady ringing me up says, "You look like you have a toddler."
Me: Yep, I have two of them, actually.
(I decided to spare her the "I actually have seven kids" story)
Cashier: You know, you can put vinegar in your kid's mouth and it's ok because it's food"
(She was getting at, I guess, that if your child uses a bad word or something you can use vinegar as a punishment like a "I'll wash your mouth out with soap" type of deal)
Cashier: If you use soap the state will take your kids away, but if your use vinegar they can't.
Me: Soap is pretty old school. People used to do that all the time, I guess.
Cashier: Yeah, one time I even had a social worker at the house, and used vinegar in my kid's mouth. I told them that it's food. They can't do anything about it.
Me: Well, it is in salad dressing....
I trailed off as I grabbed my items and made a run for the door. I wonder what she would have thought if I would have told her I was a foster parent. I swear, I attract those kind of people like flies!!!
