I went over last night and talked to the daughter that speaks English and I can understand and she tried to turn it around and say that I was the one saying things and wouldn't let me get a word in edgewise so I think it is just a family that thinks if you don't kiss their butts then you are no good. I tried apologizing and she kept repeating herself about things and saying that I said this and that about the music they had playing and then that I made some comment about what her dad was eating and about someone elses hat that they had on. Which I would never make comments about anything of anyone elses. I just don't understand why they are saying this and being this way. And she kept interrupting me when I was trying to talk which I didn't do with her.
This may get long sorry will try to explain as well as possible
My next door neighbor had a birthday party for their granddaughter a couple weeks ago, well they had asked my 4 year old but didn't say anything to me about it so the say of I took a birthday card over to her and wasn't planning on staying but the mother of the child that turned a year asked me to stay so we did.
Well my 4 year old kept saying things about wanting to play with the Spanish kid and different things but kept saying the word Spanish over and over when referring to them. I told him not to say that and to be quiet but you know 4 years old they say what is on their minds.
So we stayed for a little while because I tried to bring my child home and he just kept going back over there; but was feeling a little out of place because they kept talking in Spanish and I don't speak Spanish at all. Well we were there for about an hour and one of the sons came over and starting reaming me out about that not everyone is Spanish and that we need to watch what we were saying(when it was a 4 year old saying this).
So I told my son to come home but he wanted to play the games and break the pinta' so I said fine. But since this time the have been offish and not very friendly to me. I have apologized to them but it doesn't seem to help. I was wondering what you would do or if you would just let it go.
The daughter was out talking to one of the other neighbors and my oldest is having a fund raiser for school so we were out walking so just out of common curiosity we said hello to her and her husband and they all but ignored us just stared at us(the daughter used to talk to me more up until this incident).
I hate having or feeling like people are mad at me for some reason and don't know what to do about this. It wasn't even me that was saying anything it was my 4 year old. Have you ever had this happen to you and if so what did you do?
