I don't mean every childless people but those ppl who don't have kids and think it's okay to comment or make smart remarks about your parenting, which they know nothing about.
For example, I was at Target this evening around 5 with my near 5 y/o daughter, and she was riding on the bottom part of the shopping cart, laying down . I've seen kids do this all the time, and she knows not to jump out suddenly or have her hands drag on the floor. Anyways these 2 young punks---2 guys about 22---walk by and kind of snicker at me and say "I guess it shows how much she cares about her kid, let the kid just get hurt huh' and they walk off chuckling to each other like they're so cool. i shot them a dirty look and kept on my way. I see a man doing the same thing with his 2 daughters, one younger than my daughter about 3. I see another kid doing this as well, so i know it's not just me.
Don't you hate ppl like this? these guys were grabbing a bunch of "bachelor" stuff 12-packs of beer etc and looked like theyw ere going to party. how dare they comment on parenting!
The other day too another guy about 27 said something to me---this "thuggish" type---i was taking a walk with my daughter and she decided to lay on the grass for a minute of an aprtment compelx's lawn. bc it was hot, and i was tired, too, i just let her and kind of stood there for a minute. The guy walks by and says "dogs come and poop on this grass, you shouldn't let her lie there like that". I just said back 'I know dogs poop on grass, i wasn't born yesterday, and it's hot and I'm tired and don't tell me how to raise my kid". He just gve me a strange look and shook his head and kept walking.
Do you ever have encoutners like this? What do you say or do? Does it irritate you too? or you don't care?
