Important Safety Tip


Remember folks, when you are out shopping at Pentagon City Mall this X-Mas season, please only put your baby in a proper receptacle.

You know they only have this sign because there’d been an ‘incident’ in the past…

Maybe they should install similar signs in the Los Angeles Airport

    Great post. On our blog, “How Not to be Dreadful,” we recommend against using another type of cart–those toy-truck carts at the grocery store that crowd the aisles.

    Damn, I was going to post something about this… they have the same carts (except “blue” at Tysons) with the same, WTF message.

    Yeah, with the size of the bags on the back, I wonder how often the ‘store the kid in there’ thoughts have passed through parents’ minds. Yes, when storage of goodies in the front far outweighs the safety of their child will that contemplation exist… but then again, I’ve seen my fair share of “Cletus The Slack-Jawed Yokels” around DC.

    Yeah, don’t forget about the 60 something Mexican grandmother that put her grandchild through the X-ray in Tuscon this week…

    They (those major news outlets) said it was a language barrier, but I’m guessing some common-sense was missing… now we’ll have signs (possibly bi-lingual) noting that only the child seat, etc. and not the child must go through the x-ray…

    i think it would be ok if the bag was placed on the front and the cart was molded to look like a kangaroo. then it’s a pouch and that’s ok. : )
