How is this even remotely "trash talk"

1 mom liked this

I was at cross country practice with my dd this morning.  They were doing some wind sprints and I made the comment. "Dang..Jenny has gotten fast.  She is flying". Jenny is not my child.  She has run with my child for years.  She was never slow.  She has a,ways been fast.  But now...dang it's like her feet don't touch the ground.  It was a compliment.  There were two other parents there but not Jenny's.  One mom told me I shouldn't talk smack and that trash talk isn't adult like.


I thought it was funny and sent Jenny's mom a text telling her the exact same comment I made.  She said "Thanks for the compliment and would I please tell Jenny the same because she worked hard all summer."  Apparently thr other mom sent her a text as well.  We think the other mom needs to learn the actual definition of trash talk.

Lol! That's hilarious. The other mom was just looking for something to bitch about.

The other moms sound a little dramatic. Next time tell them they aren't on Dance Moms so cool it.

Tell them to fuck off or to just mind their business.

Sounds like she misheard you.

I'm thinking she didn't hear exactly what you said, or well idk, comprehension seems to be lacking in a lot of people these days. It is very possible she heard exactly what you said and still didn't comprehend a compliment.

Just start laughing as you tell her to shut up.

I have hearing trouble in my old age and I probably would have heard, "dang, Jenny has gotten bad. She's dying". If I would have been in your situation, I would have asked the lady if she heard what I said and then repeated it and explained it was a compliment.

But obviously  this lady knew Jenny  so she could see that Jenny was leading the pack by a good bit.  Saying she was bad wouldn't have made sense.

She's probably one of those people that isn't happy unless they are bitching about something.
