    Problem - Carrefour

    I was recently in Carrefour & it was crowded. There were children running around playing. I almost knocked into a child when I was pushing my cart as the child suddenly appeared.
    Have A Nice Day

    I had kid running onto my trolley too, i was stunned but the kid just stood up and continue chasing another child. Last night was worst, i experienced trolley jam in food section and long Q at counter.

    I had mentioned a long long time ago, a supermarket can be a hazardous place but parents without thinking and mindset insist on bringing children into these places.
    What is a supermarket? A PLACE TO SHOP AND GET YOUR STUFF!.. simple as that. ITS NOT A CHILDREN'S PLAYGROUND! The PLAYGROUND is another designated place SUITED FOR THE PURPOSE and countless people here DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT!. UNTIL SOMETHING BAD HAPPENS!..(may God forbid) then regret or think its just unfortunate! Nuff said!

    What will you do if you are going to a mall with children..??

    The mall is not just a place for shopping. It is also a place to dine, to go the the banks inside the mall, to pay bills at the post office inside the mall, etc.. Many go to a mall for multiples purposes...

    How you control the children (their nature is they like to play and will treat everywhere as playground) ??

    Not many have the luxurious like you going to a mall JUST TO SHOP... and if I am not wrong, you are a retiree with no grandchildren ??

    Do the same chaotic thing in the west/developed country, and u will have the burly security politely but sternly escorting the spoilt,ill behaved stupid brats & their blur sotong parents out of the supermart/mall. Outlets in west are afraid of accidents and be sued by vulturing lawyers, who gain from stupid parents!
    If the mindless, amoklike, havoc wrecking runaway Bo Ka Si brats bump into me, Or even irritate me, they will get an earful. If the stupid parents were to 'retaliate', many (maybe even me might just end up in the hospital, the stupid headless chicken brats included! AND a civil law suit to follow...

    Are these stupid proud of their rambunctious kids running around supermart aisles or even restaurants, like their grandfather owning the premises? Irresponsible parenting by fools!

    Open thy eyes, discard those blinkers, go travel else READ up and understand why many o/seas malls have children playground within, where for a small sum, those wild children can run riot safely, under the watchful eyes of trained service staff...

    HAPPY NEW YEAR and may2012 bolehland spoilt runaway brats, in malls be degrading reined in by a long retractable leash.Yup, like an untrained siau-kaw of a stupid animal!

    Happy New Year Tupai…

    Don’t compare with West or East(Nippon) lah…!!

    Very different society… I know as I stayed in both West and Nippon before...

    In the West and also Nippponland, EVERYONE and I repeat EVERYONE who drive a sleek automobile and can go overseas holidays every year and who have many many direct reporting staff regionally or even globally… When they are at home on weekend, they mob floor, wash the wc, prepare for lunch/dinner, etc, etc..

    Here in bolehland, lazy fellas (you included ) will employ an army of cheap cheap maid to do all the chores and spend time in bistro/pub/mamak stall, or hit the small white ball in the field, etc, etc..

    Don’t compare lah..

    Granted.. some kids are real pain in the neck inside a mall but poor parents who don’t have extra $$$ to hire maid, nanny, servant, gardener, cleaner just have to bring them along to anywhere..

    I am inclined to believe that children should not be taken to supermarkets like Carrefour. Shopping malls are different as there are plenty of space for them to run about and get themselves hopelessly lost so that they can bawl in busy corners and have their sorry state announced over the airwaves.

    Supermarkets like Carrefour, however, are rather congested and it can be annoying if little unruly children kept tripping all over themselves and knocking into you or your trolley. If they hurt themselves knocking into said trolley, isn't it inferred that the one with the trolley gets the blame?

    To me bring your kids to carrefour is not the issue, the issue is the parents who should discipline their kids and not just leave them to run , crawl wherever they want and expect others to keep their eyes out for your kids while your shop! Btw, I've been run over by little terrors who pushed trolleys bigger than themselves ( hey who needs toy trolleys when there are real ones around!), chasing each other while pushing their own empty trolleys.

    Its all linked to parents opening themselves to untold issues if something bad happens. Supermarkets also open and invite themselves to controversy and problems should something terrible happen, God forbid again. There are parents who wheel their babies on prams around the supermarket area, all you need is something bizarre or falling down from some shelf. Whatever it is, there's countless reasons why parents should be wiser and try best not to have babies, toddlers and little terrors there. They can all add to overcrowding the place. Yes, yes, there's always parents who jaga their kids and just as many who don't have eyes on them all the time. I just think its a disturbing trend and all I'm saying is parents should be much wiser, not just suit themselves because of poorer or deficient circumstances, their kids have and be part of just about anywhere they think its good for a family outing. I'm afraid I'll firmly standby my view, the SUPERMARKET area is NOT suitable for little terrors to do whatever they think is natural or liked!...PERIOD!
    Just like in some kampungs, parents seemingly allow their schoolkids (obviously unlicensed) to scream around on 100cc 2 wheelers and without safety helmets on the busy streets of the kampung. I suppose thats ok huh and blame it on enforcement never enough huh?

    konichiwa & HAPPY NEW YEAR rhiga-san! also ah, selamat kembali!

    Aiyoh, why are we bench marking against lawless, bo-ka-si lowly ignoramus coolie society? Atas sket lah bro...we must display, if only to pretend, a bit of good parenting, in midst of total strangers by the hundreds!

    I have personally witnessed a couple of security guards escorting a set of stoned parents with bawling & kicking & havoc wrecking kids outta a major mall in london. The world look at them with a mix of sympathy, disgust, amazement and mad-dog stares. Dont play play!

    Ye know, a number of restaurants in the west, esp yankyland already banned kids. They are confident enuff that there are diners/people out there who do not like half mad, rambunctious kids running helter skelter spoiling the mood for good food and ambience. BUT of course shopping mall & smart in bolehland wont take this extreme measure..Malaysians are geenrally docile and nicepeople sans Yang Amat Benggang

    BTW, while in nipponland, u ever seen the very intrusive hand written signages pinned on the wall of F&B outlets, along the side lanes of ginza, which spell out clearly "no chinese allowed" or "no foreigners allowed" or worst "no dogs, no chinese allowed"???

    Much later, when practising shadow kungfu with the terracota warriors in Xi-An, I went clap clap, when i saw a chinese restaurant with a sign "No japanese allowed'. Made my day then.HHAHAHAH!

    Yup, one of my little ambition is to buy a small little bistro/pub in Ginza/Shibuya/Roppongi and put up a sign : “ Nippon gin (except 18 years old sweeties) are not allowed to enter. This shop is only for Chukogu gin only”

    The parents think that supermarket is a free playground for the kids.

    No point harping on this further lah. Habits like this won't change even in the next decade.
    Like talking about how some parties stick bills and stickers anywhere they deem fit from trees to shop fronts to flats entirely for their own interests.
    Just like in another scene about people continuing scooting around without safety helmets regardless the law was enacted in the mid 70's.
    Hopeless lah!

    Yang Amat Benggang is me when I heard my relative who is well vice versa with lawsuits tried to sued a clubhouse where his granddaughter was creating havoc with running and climbing ontoppa the table. She broke her head. The Granddad got a settlement in the case.
    Next came the bunch of another offsprings who came to my restaurant. As usual, they were running around the resturant before I told them straight in the face of thier grandad, " Run again, I better break your heads and go to jail before you break your head and my glass table while your Grandad try to sue me."
