How would you feel if you've seen kids with parents like these?
In a movie theater lobby, a child around 6 accidentally dropped her bag of popcorn. Her quick reaction was to pick it up. Maybe to save it or throw it in the trash. It was in the mother’s reaction I got thrown off a bit. She stopped her daughter and told her someone else would get the popcorn.
Another night, a couple was walking with their maybe 4 year old and the Dad unintentionally dropped food in a styrofoam box he was carrying on the sidewalk. Neither he nor his wife picked it up. Incidentally, there was this trash can not ten steps away from where they were heading.
