After walking around a bit and not buying one darn thing I decided to let Lulu and Bubba let off some steam by

I don't know what it is about goldfish that makes children FLOCK to the bag. Seriously, I am pretty sure every child in that play area surrounded me - like little chicken pecking at my feet - wanting a goldfish. I would be lying if I said I wasn't just a little angry that all those children came running like I want Santa Clause on Christmas morning...because their parents DID NOTHING about it!
First off, I am a STRANGER...DO NOT let your children take food - or anything - from strangers, except on Halloween, but even then it should be in a tightly sealed package. Second, do you people not feed your children?! My kids would never go up to a stranger begging for food - even if they were starving...because we have taught them not to approach strangers.
Maybe parents these days just don't care about the safety of their kids...am I wrong in thinking that there was definitely something wrong with what happened??
