I was standing in the line at the grocery store, helmeted and gloved, purchasing a couple of bags of groceries.
I hear "Excuse me" somewhere near my feet.
I look down and there is this young boy, about 30 inches high - maybe 3 years old??
Once again, he says, "Excuse me."
I say, "You are excused."
He says "Excuse me" again, and then he says, nice and clearly and loudly, "We are not supposed to wear our helmets in the store."
Then mom speaks up, "Oh, I think he (meaning me) is just coming in and out of the store."
Which implied to me that this IS a rule of mom's that the kid is enforcing.
Taken totally off guard, I say something stupid like, "Oh, really!"
I laughed all the way home as did my wife when I got home.
