  • That was extremely rude of your mother. That family was clearly in a crisis and its really none of anyone's business what was going on unless you are directly involved. I think its extremely immature and rude to have to have your nose in everyone else's business especially in a time like that.

  • Why did you let your mother take your child into the hall? It is rude of your mother to be so nosy, but this is your child, not hers.

  • Yes that was rude, actually just plain nosey. Mom seems to have control issues.
    Hope your child is better soon.

  • Sorry, I wasn't trying to be mean - I just realized how rude it read. But I am glad the you told her what you thought about that. And yes, it's good to respect your mother, but if she's not respecting your wishes, then it's always a good idea to speak up about it. I do hope your little one is feeling better!

  • Yes I think it is very rude and disrespectful to you and your child! Her main concern should have been what is going on with her grand baby and his well being; not everyone else! Your mother sounds very immature. I am sorry that you had to deal with tat on top of your little one being sick.

  • no offense to your mom, but that was very rude! and you're right, if i just got some bad/sad news, i'm not the type that would want others in my biz! no matter how loud i'm getting, i'm in pain and that's how i express it...but that isn't an invitation for folks to look at me like i'm a side show.

    i feel where you're coming from.

  • As a nurse I would have asked your mother to leave the ER and remain in the waiting room until you two were ready to leave. No thought just ushered her out.
