Overheard VII

In Marks and Spencer, Manchester, England:

I am standing near a little girl who is playing in the middle of the aisle, singing to herself and dancing a bit. She looks about 6. Her dance involves stepping on certain squares of the tiles. About 10-15 feet away are a man and a woman, her parents?

The woman, glaring in the direction of the little girl with her arms folded, says loudly,

“What’s she think she’s doing? I just want to smack her.”

I am a misanthrope. No one ever believes me, but this seems to prove my point.
