I recently observed a child, probably 5 or 6 years old, serving himself out of the bread, muffin, and pastry cabinet in the concierge lounge. I was somewhat surprised when he took out a piece of bread, smelled it, then put it back. He did this to several pieces of bread before choosing one. He then did the same thing to several muffins, even sticking his finger in the blueberry in one, before putting it back in the cabinet and choosing another one.
What would you do if you observed this child? I will share what I did after I read some of your comments. I tried posting this as a poll, but was unable to do so. Maybe a narrative comment is best anyway.
