And with the help of Jacaranda FM listeners, the team will do their best to assist the person in need.

Here is the e-mail we received:

"Dear Drive Team,

I was at a market over the weekend and saw something that absolutely baffled me.

While at one of the food stalls I saw a child licking the tomato sauce bottle.

For obvious reasons, this is pretty disgusting.

I was about to say something to the kid when their dad called them. I went to Dad and asked him to explain to his kid that this wasn’t acceptable, and he told me to mind my own business.

Later, I saw the child again and thought about telling the kid that licking bottles of sauce was not on, but decided against it.

Should I have said something? Is it ok to scold someone else’s child?
