I want it NOW!

so I was in line at Old Navy the other day and the lady behind me and her daughter all of about 10, the girl seen something and said mom I need it now, not later now! the mom said are you sure cause you want this shirt and you realy want it, the girl replys well I want both now get them now! and starts whinning even more so the mom gets it for her, I stepped out of line on this one I looked at the girl and mother and said you are rude and very disrespectful to your mom, do you have the money for the things you want? did you ask nicely say please and thank you? no you demanded it and that is not right at all, the grill looked at me and said my mom does what I say, I looked at the mom and said you should put the stuff down leave go home and take all her stuff away and yours until you bother learn what manners are. the mom agreed and said I created it, I just dont know how to stop it, Tell her NO!

  • I agree, tell her no. What a brat that girls is/was, but think her Mom let it all happen and that's what she gets. Maybe since you spoke up the Mom will get some backbone?!

  • I think it is very bad but at least the mom admitted to her mistake.

  • This is pretty bad. I would never have the guts to say something to her.
