I took the city bus out to Meijer's today to get some things and had my daughter who will be 10 months tomorrow with me, I'm 24 weeks pregnant with #2 but my problem is, I was friends with this girl for about 5 years, we were really good friends, her parents don't like me for some reason and I have no idea why but we ended our friendship because she had some money or something come up missing and accused me of stealing the money from her and her parents told her to stop talking to me and hanging out with me and she did, she got her phone number changed probably so I wouldn't have it but oh well I really didn't care because if someone wants to be like that then I don't need them as my friend anyways.

So today I'm at Meijer's where she works and was just going there to get some things and wasn't even thinking of her at all so I had nothing of her on my mind and she tells her dad that I punched her and her dad was at the store when I was there, he goes did you punch my daughter? and I said what are you talking about? He goes she said you punched her is this true? I said no and he goes you are a liar, I said oh really? your daughter's the biggest liar I have ever met in my life so I don't think you got any place calling anybody a liar. He kept trying to talk to me and I told him to shut up and leave me alone, he kept trying to talk some more and I kept saying blah blah blah and he called me a bitch. I was like thanks loser. Then he called the cops on me because he said I was harrassing his daughter when I didn't even do shit. The cops came and I told the cops that he was harrassing me the entire time I was in the store and that I was just getting diapers for my daughter and leaving I wasn't even thinking about this girl. The cops asked him why he was harrassing a pregnant woman and her daughter? He couldn't come up with a good answer so the cop was like you're free to go. I was so scared that I was going to get in trouble, I don't go around starting problems with people so I don't get what I did to provoke this. I was so mad, sorry I just needed a place to vent about this. I'm still mad.

If a parent won't fight for their child, who will?

Quoting babyspots17:

I will never understand how a parent can think it is all right to fight their child's battles.

If anyone from that family approaches you again, first ask them why she did not call the cops to report an assault when it occured if you really did punch her? Then state that you will call the cops to report that they are continuing to harass you. That should shut them up and make them leave you alone. Also your boyfriend should stop calling them to argue. That is just feeding into the drama that that family wants to create! Just a thought - why didn't they report the money theft to the place when it supposedly happened?? Sounds like it's the best thing that this former friend is no longer in your life.

Yes you do need to grow up. 

My 10 year old has better writing skills than you.  Did you pass high school?  Secondly, an adult would have said, "excuse me sir, im purchasing diapers and leaving.  If you dont step away from me I will call the store manager and have them review security tapes.  It will show that I didnt go near your daughter and possibly show her calling you to bother me, a customer.  Im quite sure this would get her fired."

I suggest finding a new place to buy diapers and if that isnt possible tell the store manager what happened and ask them to help you formulate a plan for a conflict free shopping experience.

If she is friends with someone with 2 kids I assume the "child" is an adult.  The adult should fight their own battles.

File a complaint with the store against this incident...and name her in the report for starting a problem where none existed, and the out come of what happened has now caused you anxiety and emotional suffering, and you are now furthermore seeking an atty's consultation on the matter.  See how fast they jump to accomodate you at that store next time, and maybe that bitch won't have a job anymore either, to harass future customers.

They don't like you because of what they believe you did. If you did it or not does not matter to them. Avoid them at all costs. In the store neither of them should be going near you though. You can speak to management and she can lose her job over harrassing a customer. I would avoid the store though. If they come up to you again walk away and tell them to just leave you alone. If they don't then call the cops for harrassment. They will learn. But you also have to learn. This guy was not acting right and you are pregnant. Stay away from them. It is just not worth it.

It's not a child though. This is an adult and her father is fighting her battles in her workplace. She can lose her job over his behavior. It is wrong. Especially against a pregnant woman. If there is really an issue they can take it to court but they can not do this.

I think you need to grow up. You're a mother now, set an example. Choose better friends.

I called and spoke to the store manager and told him everything that happened and he told me he'd take care of the issue. I also told him that I'm pregnant and have a 10 month old daughter as well and don't deserve this type of harrassment.
