sestree: (why I drink)
I mentioned this as a comment on [ profile] sweetpea86's post

Last night I went to pick [ profile] pyllgrum up at the airport. I was waiting for him outside the security area on Concourse D - basically out of the pathway but close enough I could see him come out. I was on the escalator side. On the other side was a family congregated on and around the seats. For reasons unknown to me, one of the parents thought it might be ok to let her toddlers play in the walkway. One was possibly about 4 - first time he was nearly tripped over he moved back out of the way. The other one - young enough to still be using a sippy cup - was happily playing right in the main path. Where was Mom? She had her back turned to the entire situation (though other family members could *possibly* see) and was having a rousing conversation with her companions.

I kept waiting for a flight attendant to turn it into security. I tend to avoid security/TSA @ BWI as much as possible (that's a story for another time) so I didn't interefere. No I didn't bring it to 'mother's'
attention either because frankly if the entire family can't see the issue, me pointing it out wasn't going to help. The youngest was still planted in the way when [ profile] pyllgrum got off the plane. He had *just* missed a toddler girl (from a different family) escape and run the wrong way through security.

What happened to parents watching their children? [ profile] sweetpea86 mentioned people who leave their kids just at the checkoutstand and walk away to get something


What is this world coming to?
