It's nice to share things with strangers — but does it become emotional manipulation when those strangers are five-year-old kids throwing a temper tantrum?
A woman recently took to Reddit to ask if she was wrong for buying the last three slices of cake at a supermarket when a screaming little kid wanted one. Here's her story.
There are these special slices of cake I like to get at the bakery section at my local store. I recently had surgery so I try to stock up on my items so I don't have to make multiple trips to the store (driving is hard for me right now, especially bc I frequently have to take pain meds and I can't drive when on those things), otherwise I wouldn't be as much as a food "hoarder."
Anyway there were 3 slices left and I grabbed them all, then I head to the checkout line. A mother came up behind me with her crying/screaming kid I'm guessing he was 4-5 (they weren't there when I grabbed the cake slices, they must've went to the Bakery section after me and there were none left).
