Why are single moms and married moms always thinking they are right?

I just seen a post that is NOW closed, a single mother wanted a job via phone call told a potential employer she is a single mother, so some said she should do it the right way and most single moms got really riled up and rude.
I'm married but have no problem with a single mother. Yet, why do "some" single mothers feel their entitled?
Why the need to get so defensive and start bashing you if you don't agree with them.
Just as "some" married mothers often assume that single mother are on PA and WIC when most aren't.
I figured we are all mothers but watching those kinds of post makes me sick because these women are so judgmental to each other what are their children going to be like?
I respect the single mother but the more I see these mothers on here just being so nasty and immature I'm beginning to wonder
Why does their have to be such abuse on here your grown women just answer a question w/out the PMS rabid monkey attitude?

  • Be careful I'm sure some mom's will want to lynch you or go after your grammar lol but I read that post I say act professional and get a job like everyone else does the right way.
    If you got no child care then get its your problem not the employers.
    I'm a single mom.... soooooo just saying I'm not going to say hey I'm a single mom give me the job because I need it more.

  • Good question OP. But I honestly don't think there will be very many civil comments made to this thread.

  • Love the ideal I hate that PMS rabid monkey attitude myself :D.
    I think some women genuinely feel like their way is the right way. I don't comment or read those kinds of comments because it only upsets me when I see 'grown women" be more brutal then jungle guerrillas.
    I wish they thought like you and would get along but sometimes some people dwell on being contrary.

  • I will have to admit that it really pisses me off when a single mom says well I have a kid to support. At a previous job my hours got cut because a single mom needed more hours or she said she would quit. I had been there longer showed up everyday I was told to. I guess I don't understand why its ok to say "I'm a single mom poor me" if you can't afford a kid then you should be on birth control or keep your legs shut. I'm sure that there are some exceptions to the rule e.i death of the father and such but generally that's not the case.

    VERY RUDE!! I am a Married SAHM and am NOT an a**! I have NO problem with single mom's - or with people on PA - UNLESS they are abusing the system as a LOT of people are! AND BTW--- There are MARRIED, SAHM's who are abusing the PA system also! I am not high & mighty... and I don't think I am 'better' than ANYONE for ANY reason. For you to make ASSumptions says a lot about YOUR character.

  • I believe we all have a hard job being parents whether this takes the form of marriage or single parenting. working or stay at home moms we all have this job but some how we cannot agree to disagree. I think this is a good question why cant we all just get along?
