Running down aisles instead of staying with us.
Constantly asking for this and that, even when I made it clear that we were not getting anything that wasn't on our list. (We are on a strict budget.)

I told them, "It's time to go." They looked at me and ran back around the gazebo, so I sighed and walked toward my car. I started to put our toddler into his carseat.
An elderly gentlmen backed out his car, opened the window, and gently told me that he was concerned about how my kids were acting. He was not mean and I could tell he was genuinely concerned about me and them. He said he saw how they acted in the library, and in the parking lot, and was concerned that they didn't listen to me and would get hurt. I gently told him that it's difficult becaus their daddy doesn't make them obey and I was having a rought time with them. Then I got into my car and drove to Walmart.
