When she was told she couldn’t have any, she began to cry. The mother said, “There, there, Ella, don’t cry. Only two more aisles to go, and then we’ll be checking out.”

The man again happened to be behind the pair at the check-out, where the little childl immediately began to clamor for gum and burst into a terrible tantrum upon discovering there would be no gum purchased today.

The mother patiently said, “Ella, we’ll be through this check-out stand in five minutes, and then you can go home and have a nice nap.”
