I worked at a JCPenney,,and for those of you who work around people, youve probably been witness to quite a many neglectful parent stories. We found this little hispanic girl lost in the store,,thankfully I know enough spanish to communcate with a three year old. She couldnt find her mom or her sister,,we issued an alert in out store and in all of the mall. They couldnt be found anywhere. The little girl,Graciela, just hung out with me for like and hour while people were frantically searching for her mom and sis. AN HOUR!!!!!! She was the sweetest little thing,,trying to help me bag clothing and fold and ect. Like I said she was with me for an hr. FINALLY, her sister, who looked to be about 14 yrs, came up and got her. She was laughing and thought it was funny and explained that her and her mother got ALL THE WAY HOME without Graciela. I was dumbfounded. How could you forget such a young child, but not just that,,,but to get ALL THE WAY home with out her and not realize she isnt in the car. I was so furious and wanted to tell her mother a little something!! This kind of behavior drives me crazy...I figured some of you other public workers have seen this kind of thing before,,,I'd love to hear your stories.
