"Fun Straws" Anyone?

"Fun Straws" Anyone?

I just came across a funny story that I have to share with all of you! Andrea Bailey, a mother from Kentucky, went shopping at her local Wal-Mart to buy fun straws for her 3-year-old daughter back in February. When she got home and looked at what she had just purchased, she was aghast to see that the straws resembled male genitalia! She made an angry complaint to Wal-Mart, who apparently shrugged off her gripe, but eventually issued this statement: “At Wal-Mart we take customer questions and concerns seriously. After being contacted on this matter, Wal-Mart pulled the product in question from our shelves and is investigating the claim. Of course, our customer is welcome to return the item for a refund, if they would like."

Andrea Bailey told that her concern is not about the $1.69 she paid for the straws, but "what might happen to other families with kids a little older than Ashlynn." Now in my opinion, this was a gross overreaction, but then again, I'm not a mother of a 3-year-old. So tell me ladies, do you think she did the right thing by filing a complaint or do you think she should have just left well enough alone?
