Angry Mum Defends Sons Right To Wee In Supermarket

Angry Mum Defends Sons Right To Wee In Supermarket

China's one child policy that has created a generation of little emperors who can do no wrong for their parents was taken to the extreme at this store after a furious mother attacked staff for stopping her son from peeing in the fruit section.

And the woman created such a fuss for so long that the poor worker who had originally stopped the boy from urinating had a heart attack, and had to be rushed to hospital.

Supermarket worker Ling Chen, 45, had spotted the youngster dropping his trousers and about to pee on the fruit, and ran over and told him to get dressed. But she was spotted by the child's mother who had been standing next to him and had not been doing anything to stop her sons behaviour and flew into a rage when somebody else did. She reportedly shouted: "How dare you, children need to be able to relieve themselves wherever they want. Everyone knows that they can't hold it in and it's unhealthy."

When other staff came over and tried to calm down the woman she became even more annoyed, and started screaming and shouting even when the manager turned up, and both he and the other staff repeatedly offered apologies.

Other shoppers who were shocked by the woman's outburst took several snaps of her lambasting staff and one, Wen Su, 42, posted the images online. She said: "Despite the apology it didn't placate her and she only stopped when one of the staff members clutched her chest and fell on the floor.

"The woman's husband who stood quietly behind her saying nothing during the incident left with his wife and son after the ambulance arrived. The amazing thing is that they left clutching gift vouchers and a bag of free fruit as a further apology from the store."

One Chinese Internet user said of the pictures: "Having this kind of parents, I really don’t know how the kid will be after growing up."
