    Like most shopkeepers I’ve had the odd disagreement with customers but I’ve never actually reduced one to tears. This child ran into the shop demanding to see the pets and started to proceed through the shop very determinedly, followed by a very henpecked-looking father pushing a pram with a baby in it. As I very politely told the child we didn’t sell pets he stopped in his tracks, stared at me as if I was mad, turned round and ran out screaming at the top of his voice. He then stood on the pavement howling his eyes out, throwing a right temper tantrum. I apologised to the father but he did not really seem worried and there was not a lot I could do about it.
