Parent of the year ... not

We were at a local water park today, and as we were leaving, there was a bit of a scene between a woman and her roughly 10-year-old daughter. Apparently the daughter had lost her goggles, so the mom just picked up a similar pair and, well, stole them. Daughter was near hysteria (her mom kept telling her to stop "dramatizing"), trying to tell her mother that this was stealing and it was wrong and she should return the goggles to where she found them. Mom was totally unimpressed, and acted like the daughter was just being ridiculous. Mom tried to explain that the goggles were very similar, so whoever these belonged to could just have the ones she had lost, as if that were perfectly reasonable. Great lesson to teach your kid, lady. You should be very proud.
