3 Freebies people give my kids that I hate
1. Sweets/lollies. This especially annoys me when its given at the doctors after an appointment.Surely if anyone should know better than to offer children sweets it would be the doctor. And then you stand there frantically shaking your head as they reach for an oversized jar of violently coloured lollipops that you know will keep the child happy for all of 10 seconds before it ends up stuck in their hair or ground into your car seats.
2. Balloons. These usually come branded with a corporate logo so your child gets to be free advertising for a company for the 20 minutes they spend waving it around at your face height before it gets let go or popped (not sure which is worse because the resulting tantrums are about the same!).
3. Party bags filled with small plastic toys that get broken or forgotten until they end up embedded in the sole of my foot in the middle of the night while I walk to the bathroom.
