Crazy old people

When my daughter was about seven months old we were in Wal-Mart. As we were walking down the aisle I would lean down close to her and squeal. Then she would copy me. Then we would both laugh hysterically. We kept doing this throughout the store. Then this little old lady tapped me on the shoulder and told me I should be ashamed of myself and should teach my little girl how to be a lady.

Recently we were at a park and my daughter now eight was burying herself in the stuff on the playground. This old lady was sitting there next to the playground complaining about how loud the kids were being and then pointed at my daughter and said loudly that her parents should stop her because she is just filthy. I figure that is what I take my kid to the park be loud and get dirty.

  • Uh hello, that is what the park is for! For the kids to let loose and burn that energy!

  • I would ignore her. Heck, I would whip out a camera and take pictures of my "filthy" girl.

  • Thats what kid's are SUPPOSED to do at the playground! Scream, have fun and get dirty. Screw the crazy old bitch!

  • If I am not in the mood to be around screaming children I do not go to the park, Chuck E Cheese, Incredible Pizza, Peter Piper Pizza, or any of those establishments. I guess some people are not as brilliant as me.
