Maybe It's Me

I was at the giant Walmart earlier. There was a pasty-faced, skeletal, heavily tattooed couple with three kids, shopping for groceries. I passed them maybe 5 times while I was in there, and the scene was the same each time. Mom was carrying the infant under her arm like a football, and it was screaming like its diaper was on fire. The boy, about 5, was standing up in the front of the shopping cart and yelling gibberish at the top of his lungs for no apparent reason. The girl, about 9, was curled up in the fetal position in the shopping cart and sucking her thumb. The parents didn't even seem to notice.

Makes you wonder what goes on in the home, doesn't it? I'm pretty sure I have a good idea unfortunately.
