Holy crap I can't believe that happened

I'm not even going to go anon for it because I just couldn't believe what happened.

A friend asked me to watch her 16 month old daughter and after dropping her off at work I decided to run to the grocery store.

I have a Honda pilot* and the car seat was in the middle so I has space on either side. I picked her up and noticed immediately she was wet so I decided to change her in the car rather than in the grocery store because it's cleaner. I laid her down in the seat and realized because of the car seat and how tall she is that I couldn't comfortably change her laying down in the seat. I do have a large back area but I have those rubber mats and it has nubs so I knew it wouldn't be comfortable so I made the decision to change her standing up in the seat next to her car seat. Working in day cares I think I've perfected the stand up and change technique and we were done in just a few seconds.

What I didn't see was a lady who had walked up behind me.

She proceeded to tell me how disgusting I was and how she was calling CPS and how you're not supposed to do that. That a pervert could be watching and then she started snapping pictures of us! Up until then I had just ignored her and continued walking towards the store but when I heard the noise from her camera phone I turned around and told her to stop immediately or I would report her to the police for harassment. She continued to snap pictures and tell me how horrible of a mother I was. By this time we were walking into the store and a lot of people were staring. The lady gets louder and says this lady was exposing her daughter to perverts! Someone call CPS. Someone call the cops.

Of course by this time I'm mortified and I said I was just changing her diaper! It was just a diaper!

Thankfully an employee heard the commotion and came over there and tried talking to the lady and me and I said for about hundredth time I was just changing her diaper. She brought me into an office and by this point im near tears and she told the lady she would handle it from here. I'm bright red from embarrassment and anger and the employee, S, let me sit there and calm down and told me she believed me and just wanted to bring me into the room so the other lady would leave.

After about 10 minutes of sitting there we left and went down the street to another grocery store.





* I'm only mentioning the exact vehicle I drive because it's easier to picture what all happened and how I was changing her diaper

I would have demanded the cops be called and make sure the pictures where removed from her camera.

I think she may have too much time on her hands, I can't see a person with a life acting like that.

It isn't like you stripped the kid naked on the jumbotron at the Texans game. You changed a diaper.  Go track her down and moon her. Then give her a wet willie.

Shes a dumb ass. I would have called the cops since she was takeing pics of a small child. I would hace been tempted to snatch that cell phone out of her hand and delet the picks before stomping it to bits. It was none of her damn business!

What a fucking psycho. I'd have told her to go ahead and call the cops.
