Signs unseen

Can't remember where I saw or heard this but it speaks for itself, even if it only ever existed in the mind of someone who'd exceeded his or her tot quota for the day:

UNATTENDED CHILDREN WILL BE GIVEN AN ESPRESSO AND A FREE KITTEN!

My kid would think that sounded like a good offer. I'm tempted to let him wander.

Some days I'd risk it, I really would. My solution for dealing with retail assistants and shopkeepers who like to ignore customers is to let the children go. I haven't had a chance to use it yet, although I have used the 'screaming child in the stroller' to good effect, mostly by accident, several times.

They should stress that it is a not yet house-trained kitten. That'd learn 'em.

It was posted by &Duck, from the Woodford festival, here.

The original is "Unsupervised children will be given a double shot espresso and a free puppy. You have been warned."

Hee. No, I'd never seen that post -- the version I saw was much more recent and the threatened millstone was definitely a kitty. But then, it is much too good not to be doing the rounds and rounds and rounds.

Heh, Zoe beat me to it... but I think being given a puppy is the scarier version. I wouldn't be able to resist a free kitty.

Added to which, a puppy will poop on your floor in larger amounts, and for longer, than a kitten.
