Last night I was at the store. I was standing in line and thefts were about three people ahead if me. This lady sends her son for butter. He was about the size of my seven year old. He came back with I Can't Believe Its Not Butter. This lady lost her mind. Grabbed his arm. Called him stupid and retarded. My 11 year old took the "butter" from the boy and went and got the right thing.
Then asks me not so quietly how kids are supposed to know things if they don't get taught. The lady shut up and glared at my kid.
But seriously. I felt so bad for this kid. Even when my kids make a dumb move I don't call them dumb or stupid or anything like that.
