A CHILD in a supermarket would be happier and more successful in later life if they were told to shut the fuck up and behave, shoppers believe.
Five-year-old Tom Logan’s screaming and running around left many feeling he needed stricter parenting along the lines of a blazing adult row or pre-fight argument in a pub.
Shopper Donna Sheridan said: “I love children but his mum needed to get right up in his face and shout ‘FUCKING BEHAVE, YOU LITTLE BASTARD!’ until he cried.
“If he doesn’t learn normal behaviour he’ll fail at school and end up on the dole with eight kids and a drooling bullmastiff. All for the sake of a simple ‘Shut your fucking mouth!’.
“You could tell other customers were thinking the same thing, but of course you can’t say anything. It’s so sad to see kids not getting the swearing they need.”
Teacher Nathan Muir said: “That little boy is going to have self-control issues in later life. It’s a short step from filling the trolley with boxes of chocolate cereal to burying bodies in your basement.”
Logan’s mum Sophie said: “I’m pretty strict with Tom. Today I told him to stop firing things into people’s gardens with his catapult, or there’ll be no more gerbils this month.”
