I am utterly shocked at the words that came out of this older woman's mouth when I told her to mind her own business. I mean seriously!
Let's start at the beginning. M is gone for the weekend. Booger was having a hard time listening tonight. We were going to Panera to pick up dinner, he wasn't listening when I was trying to talk to him. So as I was getting out of the car I told Booger "if you can't be respectful when I'm talking to you, then I will do the same to you." Maybe it was harsh, but at the moment I was over it. This lady walks up to me and tells me I shouldn't speak to my kids that way. I told her to mind her own business, she doesn't know the situation. Then she proceeds to call me an a@%hole! Like seriously?!?!? Then I said "wow! Thanks for using such nice language around my kids" Then she proceeds to tell me I am a horrible mother and never should have been one! Can you believe it?!?!? How rude! I don't care how horrible you thought what I said was, you do NOT say something like that in front of my kids! Why can't people mind their own business??? It's not like I was being overly mean to my son or beating him in public (not that I do in private either) but geeze!
I know it shouldn't bother me what someone else says. I know I am a good mom and I love my kids more than anything in this world. But I refuse to raise disrespectful kids.
Why do women have to be so mean and rude to each other?
