Some mom's need to know when to SHUT-UP!

Okay, before I begin this has nothing to do with cafemom.com.  In that light I was at the grocery store by myself, and my kids wanted to help.  However they both started to fight about who was gonna do what.  Well I warned them that if they didn't stop we were gonna leave the store.  Well after several protests from them they said No and we continued.  Well I went to the grapes and as I was looking at them I noticed this mom kept looking in my direction and giving me dirty looks.  Well, my kids again started bickering and my oldest started stealing grapes from the fruit stand which he knows is not allowed, so I gave them a choice that we either leave the store or they get a spanking.  Needless to say they didn't want to leave the store so I tapped them, (YES TAPPED them) on the hinney just to warn them that I mean business and after that they said sorry but before we could continue our shopping, this mom came over and litereally told me that " It's apperhent that you can't control your kids, you are making a scene and you need to leave the store, NOW!" I was so shocked that I didn't know what to say, I did start to tear up only cause I am 8.5 mon pregnant, it's been a very long day, I didn't get much of a nap and I am dead tired.  So anyway my kids did straighten up and as we were headed out of the store this same mom cuts me off doesn't say anything and just throws me this look that could kill.  Needless to say at that point ALL GLOVES were off and I didn't care what came out of my mouth although I was nice and no obsentities came out.  I just told her in no uncertain terms that these were my kids, not hers, and if she didn't like how I disciplined them to keep her mouth shut, mind her own business and keep right on walking.  She started to "bitch" at me but I wasn't having it, I took my kids by the hand and we quietly walked out of the store.  All I can say is WTF what is it about people these day, why can't they just allow parents be parents, I mean it wasn't like I was beating my kids, infact my kids weren't even crying when the incident happened.  Man I hate this town.. I so need to move....
