I guess this is almost a Dear Abby question. Nothing too serious but I kind of want to know the general consensus.
I am currently on a business trip in Miami and yesterday I went to a nearby mall (Merrick Park mall, fairly high end) for lunch. I went into this very well maintained ladies' room right outside Nordstrom. There was a line (what else is new?) and all were patiently waiting. Now, there was this woman with a young boy who looked about 9 or 10. He ran to every stall and peeked inside between the doors and door frames. He then would laugh and say something in Spanish to his mother (or least I assume that was his mother) who was also in line. And then he would do it back and forth so he would peek into the same stall multiple times again and again. And not just a glance, he was actually standing there and peeking for like half a minute into a stall. So even though I don't understand what he was saying, I know it was not a matter of finding out if a stall was empty. All this time, his mother was just reading something on her phone, hardly answering him.
I was shocked at by his behavior. More shocked that his mother said absolutely nothing. And even more shocked nobody standing in line said anything either. They all looked like nothing unusual was going on.
I personally found his behavior totally unacceptable, and his mother's. But I am not at all sure I have a right to displine other people's children so I didn't say or do anything. Also the fact everyone else seemed to think nothing of it made me wonder if I was overreacting.
Now my question is: do you also find this behavior totally unacceptable? Or am I being over sensitive? Also, if you do think this is unacceptable, what would you have done?
