Rounding the front of my car in the Target parking lot today, I looked up and saw a mother helping her son who was standing on the back seat in the open door of their Denali. She looked up and saw me, and immediately pulled up her son's pants, revealing to me what he had been doing. I looked at the ground, and sure enough, there was his fresh pee in a puddle at her feet.
She lifted him down to stand on the asphalt next to his pee, and she reached into the car and got a water bottle, then proceeded to spray down the pee puddle.
How the hell does someone (who owns a DENALI for jeebus' sake) reach the point where teaching their child to pee in a busy parking lot instead of walking 20 yards to the public restroom is OK?
