TOist correspondant Ann, with her sharp ears and magnet for insanity, overheard the following at Todmorden Mills this weekend:
Frustrated mother of 3 boys: Boys! Stop that! What if you break all this art? Do you want to pay for it? I can’t pay for it! That lady will make you work here until you’re 40! And I can’t stop her!
The same woman later on, trying to get her 4 year old son into his snowsuit: Rico, stop it. It’s not funny.
Rico: Yes it is.
Woman: What if I stepped in dog poo and then stepped in the snow and then you ate it? Would that be funny? No, you’d get sick.
