What would you have done if someone said this to you?a vent....

I am very watchful of my money as there is very little of it - as I am sure it is with alot of folks. ANY way...I had someone tell my mom that I came out of walmart with a basket of stuff overflowing. Where did I get the money...( I came out of walmart-saw her and said Hi - I swear that was it !) I came out of walmart carrying a bucket and a bag-not even a cart!I feel like telling her off - but don't wish to hurt my mom in the process.Now this woman has never hurt for anything-she wants it- she gets it... I have actually rolled 40 dollars worth of pennies to take to bank and get cash for groceries! I guess it's just very annoying to me for someone to be so senseless.I have 4 gorgeous kids and am proud of them - why does someone feel the need to pick on me? She never had any kids of her own either - just feels the need to tell everyone else what to do I guess... what would you have done??

  • I don't even get what the point of saying that was.....why completely lie about something so trivial? Being the wise ass that I am...if I saw her again at Walmart, I'd probably say "Don't forget to report my purchases!"

    Some peoples lives must really be so boring and uneventful that lying about something so mundane is a thrill for them.

  • Nothing. There's nothing to do. No point in being upset by someone else's ignorance.

  • Ignore it, unless it happens again. If you bring it up the drama and bad feelings will just get worse.

  • I would just let it go! you know what the truth is. no need to get into it with someone like that. they always think that their S&%T dont stink and will continue to say what they wish! i would just tell your mom thats not what happend this is....and let it go! good luck!

  • I would have told your mother and this woman that she needs to mind her own business. What you do with your money is your business and yours alone. I can't stand that. I went to dinner with my uncle one night and when he dropped me back off at my apartment he offered to carry my daughter upstairs for me. I told him thank you, but no thank you because my apartment was a mess right now and i'd prefer that no one see it lol. I was working around 50 hours a week back then and all of my time off was devoted to my daughter so I didn't have much energy to tidy up all the time. Well he kept insisting that he didn't care and he wanted to help me.. so I gave in and let him. Well the next day my father calls me because my cousin went running his mouth about how dirty my apartment is! I was SO pissed off. I think people just look for every reason to butt into your lives and it makes me sick.

  • some people just have no clue!! what you do or do not buy at walmart is none of her concern!! If you see her and it comes up in conversion ask her what she was thinking... otherwise just let it go... what she, or anyone thinks is really of no concern to you and yours!!

  • Vent about the situation and then let it go. She is not worth the frustration.

  • Sounds like she just has nothing better to talk about. It would urk me to if someone said something like that...but you know..she really obviously has no idea what the heck she is talking about so try to blow it off your shoulders and don't sweat it. If shes so worried about where you get your money from, maybe she should ask you directly..maybe your mom should tell her that too. Nosey,gossipy people bug me,lol.
