Ok I have a serious question and I don't want to sound snotty. Why do parents let their children do this? If I hung onto a cart while my mom was trying to shop she would have picked my butt up hauled me either to the car or the nearest bathroom and swatted my butt... also...I never would have done this because my parents would have never allowed it. I'm confused as to how this happens?
