10/13/17 Grif.Net – Whining

A man =
observed a woman in the grocery store with a three year old girl riding =
in her shopping cart. As they passed the cookie section, the little girl =
asked for cookies and her mother told her, "No." The little =
girl immediately began to whine and fuss, and the mother said quietly, =
"Now Rachel, we just have half of the aisles left to go through – =
don’t be upset. It won’t be long now."


Soon, they came to the =
candy aisle and the little girl began to shout for candy. When told she =
couldn’t have any, she began to cry. The mother said, "There, =
there, Rachel, don’t cry – only two more aisles to go and then we’ll be =
checking out."


When they got to the =
checkout stand, the little girl immediately began to clamor for gum and =
burst into a terrible tantrum upon discovering there’d be no gum =
purchased. The mother said serenely, "Rachel, we’ll be through this =
check-out stand in 5 minutes and then you can go home and have a nice =
nap."


The man followed them out =
to the parking lot and stopped the woman to compliment her. "I =
couldn’t help noticing how patient you were with little Rachel," he =
began.


The mother replied, =
"I’m Rachel – my little girl’s name is =
Emma."
