Seriously?!?!?


I was at Giant Eagle this morning. I had 4 of the 5 with me (Roo was at school), so we were quite cumbersome. I had the limo stroller, and Peanut was holding onto the stroller. While in an isle an older woman was quite annoyed at how much space we were taking up (I was looking for a specific stuffing for our dinner tonight), she sighed LOUDLY, and SWUNG her cart around us....HITTING my sweet Peanut in the face!!!!! What's worse is that she saw what she had done and just kept going!!!!! Miss Peanut was trying to be brave. She had her hands over her face and was trying her best not to cry....but you could see the tears welling up. I knelt down and gave her a kiss and told her it was OK to cry. She cried and cried, and when she was done she asked me, "Mommy, why was that lady so mad at us?" I had no words, because I don't know.

I know we are a lot of people when we go out, but honestly.... I am only one person. My kids are well behaved, my babies are not screamers, and if I take up too much room just ask yourself.... would it be easier for ME to move, or for YOU to move. Had it been a woman in a wheelchair, you bet I would have left the isle and come back after I had done some other shopping, but this was an able bodied woman. She was older, but not at all unable to move around easily.

Sorry for the rant. I was just SO upset over what happened to Peanut. She did NOT deserve the brunt of that old woman's rage.

Oh man, I am sooooo sorry that happened. I'm glad to hear that your little one said, "Why was she mad at US?" and not "Why was she mad at ME?" What a little sweetheart. Oh, that really burns me up.

OK now you have my blood boiling.. I have soo been in that situation but never have I had anyone be rude or just plain EVIL.

I'm soo sorry your little peanut had to take the brunt of that womans anger. If it had been me though.. I would have chased her down and made her apologize or she would be getting " whacked " with a cart too. Even though I know two wrongs don't make a right who in the heck whacks a child with a shopping cart, KNOWS she did it, & just keeps going REALLY!!!

You know, I really can't stand people who think that everyone in the world should make things easier for them.
That woman should have said excuse me and been a little more patient.
She knew she was wrong and could have, at the very least, said sorry to your poor baby.
I think I would have run her down and made her apologize to my little one.
I tend to get a little overprotective of my kids when someone else hurts them but I think that since she was being such a SNOT anyway I may have even called the police for assault. I know a little over the top but maybe that is the lesson she needs to learn to be more considerate to others.
Hope your peanut is feeling better soon.

OHHH! That just makes me so mad! There's no call for people to be nasty. Obviously, she is a very unhappy woman!

Oh my GOD, what a rude b****! If I were you I would have chewed that woman out, gotten her to apologize to your daughter, and gotten the store manager involved! Jesus Christ, what is wrong with people?!
