Things That Make You Go "EWWWW"

Warning: If you are eating or don't like talk of boogers you may want to pass on this post.

The Scene:
I was at my neighborhood Trader Joe's scanning the aisle for the items on my list. I made eye contact with the sweetest little girl, she was probably two years old. She had bright pink cheeks, a big smile and an intense runny nose. I smiled at her, she smiled back and as she did so her dad (oblivious to the fact that I was watching) reached his large thumb under her tiny nose and he swept up the boogers. I figured he would wipe it on his jeans because snot happens right? No, he did me one worse. He took his booger laden thumb and put it in to this mouth. HIS MOUTH.  He removed the boogers with a flair of a baker removing too much icing off of a finished cake. Except it wasn't icing. It was boogers. In his mouth.

Oh lordy.

I immediately consulted my friends on twitter and asked them if this was a "parent thing" that I wasn't aware of. They quickly said that no, it wasn't. It was gross no matter what. As you find yourself in the grocery store just in time for Thanksgiving, tell me, what is the weirdest thing you have seen at the grocery store?

EWWW! That's probably the sickest 'parent thing' I've ever heard. galskdjfalskdfja;glksjdf

Actually, wait. My sister in law once said that she has ended up with her daughter's poop ON HER FACE more times than she can count after changing diapers. How horrible at changing diapers does one have to be TO GET POOP ON THEIR FACE MULTIPLE TIMES? *shudder*
