I work in a candy store and can confirm this happens every single day. Candy stores are not as fun as they seem sometimes.
I work a a Cinema and can empathize to a point. Kids try and stick their hands in the popcorn bin, or flick pieces into it. Usually I can close the metal lid before anything gets in... Little brats. Doesn't sound like it happens as often for me as it does you, but I've grown to hate children.
I, too, worked in a candy store and this never happened at mine. I did have to deal with hearing crying babies and toddlers and the like sometimes. Then, again, the set up for my store had all the unwrapped candy behind counters that we had to get for customers. Anything kids could stick their hands in was wrapped. My "big pain" was the same homeless person coming in and just taking a piece of candy from the wrapped candy section. Her response when I called her out on it and asked if she was going to pay for it: "It's just a sample." My response to that: "If you want a sample, you need to come to us and ask for one." Don't know if it actually did anything because I left before I saw her again.
I began reading this FML thinking "oooh OP is lucky! I'd love to work in a candy store!" Then I finished reading and was like "Never mind. Fuck customers."
If I knew this as a child my parents would have had to buy me SO MUCH more candy
In my country the store would just throw it out. You would never be forced to buy anything. The store would maybe ask you to control your kid, but they would never contront the customer and make them pay.
