--> I'm just goin' to the store

Another use in media is if a character (usually a [[DaddyDidntShow father]]) says they're just going to the store, but then [[ParentalAbandonment never comes back]]. It can be used this way seriously or not, but in either case it shows the the person cares nothing about the people they're leaving behind.
