Good evening ladies,
i will be brief as possible.
I went shopping with a friend and my son today. The store we went to was very colorful and filled with toys and my son was so excited so he was being loud. I noticed a young girl and her mother keep giving us dirty looks. So the girl asks her mom "why is that kid doing that"? The mother responds with "because some parents don't control their kids ."
my blood boiled and I said excuse me, my son has autism and can not help controlling his excitement and being loud. This bitch turned to me and said " even those retards can learn to shut their mouths when in public"!!!!
My friend saw my face and immediately removed my son from view and the lady's daughter was I don't know how many aisles away. I'm so ashamed to say I slapped her so hard across her face and then as if that wasnt enough I punched her in the mouth!! Omg what did I do? I am pregnant for one and a grown woman with a child. Why could I not respond with words? Why did I allow someone to infuriate me to,the point of causing physical harm to another person?
Im so ashamed of my actions and I think it's something that has been building up from all the rude looks I get and everybody turning their backs on me when I need them the most. For someone to not show compassion and understanding for my beautiful son just took me to a really bad place.
The store security stepped in and I was brought into a little room while they spoke to the woman I assaulted. To my surprise she didn't want to call the police or press charges. Perhaps through the slap and punch she realized what a real horrible person she was by saying that me. We were asked to pay for our things ASAP and please leave.
i feel so guilty for what I did and I almost wanted to apologize but her words kept repeating in my head and I felt that if she wasnt aware of autism maybe she will be a little more open minded and accepting next time she encounters a parent with a child on the spectrum.
Ladies this is usually not me to just resort to violence so fast but it was as if I had no control. My husband is proud of me and I feel like shit!!!
