FFS: A stranger made my DD cry today and I was in too much shock to tell her to F off..
ugh FFS, you guys are adding parts to the story that aren't there. I didn't LEAVE her to go get changed. My DH stayed with them while I went and changed, I had some woman issues to attend to. Then when I got back, my DH went to go get our lunches, my youngest was just done so I was holding her as she was dozing and allowing my 3 yr old to get 10 more minutes in before we had to go eat lunch. I had only said once to her that it was about time to get out and like a newly turned 3 year old she didn't immediately listen so I knew I or my DH was going to have to get stern with her. Good grief. I'm glad you perfect mommies have perfect angels who listen to every single thing you tell them to do right away. My bad, I should have them drill Sargent trained!
So, we went to this little indoor water park that we frequent today and as usual, it's empty during the week except for a few toddlers who aren't in school yet (like my DDs.) I have a 1 yr old and 3 yr old. My DH went to the car to get the lunch we packed and then you have to go upstairs to eat it on this balcony area. I'm dried off and changed holding my 1 yr old by the pool watching my 3 yr old in the shallow pool. My DH comes to the balcony and I'm trying to silently convey to him that our 3 yr old isn't listening to get out and I can't go in with my clothes on, and he still had his suit on.
So that's when crazy bitch steps in. She's comes across nice, had a 1 yr old I'd say and she casually is like "Aw, what's your older daughters name?" Innocent enough so I tell her. We'll call my DD, Mar. Suddenly she raises her voice sternly and points in my DDs direction and says "Mar! You need to get out of the pool right this instant, you aren't listening to your mother and that's very bad! Come out of the pool right now". I'm like..what the fuck just happened? lol My DD unfortunately is pretty sensitive and she's not used to getting borderline yelled at by strangers. She curled her lip so fast and starting bawling and STILL wouldn't get out of the pool. She looked almost scared to. The bitch started in again trying to tell my DD to get out and I put my hand firmly on her shoulder and was like "That's quite alright, I've got it from here".
I honestly don't know how I didn't go off on her. People have some big ass balls....
