(A new employee informs me that she spotted a little boy sneaking some candy in his pants. I confront the boy and an older woman about it.)
Me: “Excuse me, ma’am. Hey, kiddo, what’s in your pocket?”
Granny: “Oh, h***, again?! Boy, if you don’t put that d***ed candy back, that lady gonna call the po-po on you! And I ain’t gonna stop her none.”
(The boy, crying, hands me 2 candy bars and a handful of suckers. I thank the lady, and get back to work. A few minutes later, the boy’s mother comes up to me.)

Aside from what a mess the family is and wondering who will rein in mom and child after Granny passes, I can’t help but think that some poor sould bought a snack that had been down a kid’s pants that day.
Ugh, I didn’t think of that!
WOW! That site is awesome! I just read through all 116 pages of the archives… and submitted a story of my own.
