This weekend is our small town's little festival - "Banks Days". Today was the parade, a fun little 20 minute bit down the main street, featuring decorated combines, fire trucks, and lots of tossed candy.
The candy was the problem. The heavy-set guy to my left was being a greedy jerk about it.
Mr Greedy was grabbing all the candy he could reach - and multiple times literally took it from my 5-year-old daughter when she was inches away from grabbing it. Enough that Rachel was in tears after 5 minutes, because she had literally gotten NO candy thanks to this jerk.
And all this despite the fact that my older kids were actually sharing their candy with the guy's kids.
Not to fear - we moved Rachel away from Mr Greedy, and my older kids did a great job helping her reach candy on her own. Still, for an adult to act that way is just embarrassing.
