Ranttt.

I was on the bus today with my bunch (as car's broken down) as I like to call them when this woman came up to me, looked at my kids and said: "you should be ashamed of yourself." I don't even know what she meant but that wasn't polite, my kids heard and are now convinced that "mommy's been naughty". I'm married, yes I look young, but I'm 25 and she has absolutely no right to say that. And I know I've got 6 children but they were honestly behaving I don't understand, did she think I was younger or single or something? (but i was wearing wedding ring) And you shouldn't even say that to that, since there's nothing wrong with it! Would you be angry too? Urghhhhh.

  • I would have asked her "And what should I be ashamed of" I cannot stand how some can be so self-rightious.

  • my guess is that she probably thinks you are the oh so hated "welfare mom who has kids just to get more $" like so many ignorant people think. She had no way of knowing you were on the bus because you car is getting fixed.

    I think I would have asked WTF she meant by that comment.

  • Well I'm probably a qualified candidate to answer this question since I am young with not one, but 3 children. I get a lot of judgement, especially from Elderly people. However, I am married, I've been with him for 6 years, he is the father of all my children, we both work, and I'm in school. All I can say is yes, it would've made me so mad my head would've probably inflated, but just know that ignorant people like that, are what make this world so diverse. Who care what she thinks.
