Mom lectured after 2-year-old takes candy
BLACKBURN, England, April 2 (UPI) -- A Blackburn, England, woman said she was humiliated when a Woolworths store employee confronted her after her young daughter ate a candy from a pic 'n' mix bin.Aishah Khan, 23, said she was approached by an employee of the store after her daughter, Isra, 2, took a 40-cent piece of candy from a bin and ate it, The Daily Mail reported Wednesday."She's only 2. She didn't know that what she was doing was wrong and that when you look at the sweets you can't just take one," Khan said. "Then a member of staff came over and said, 'That's theft' in front ofall the other customers. I couldn't believe what I was hearing -- I was humiliated."If this man had come over politely and asked me to pay for it, fine, but it was like Isra had stolen something really valuable," she said. "The fact is he was making a song and dance over a 20p (40 cent) sweet. Obviously I agreed to pay for it -- but they went really over the top."
