should I have handled it different (update)
so I work retail. a mom came in with a child that was throwing a fit. she swatted him not a big deal. until she kept beating this poor child. she swatted him at least 16 swats 5 times on the leg. he was about 5ish and you could tell he had some developmental problems by looking at him. My redneck kicked in and it took everything i had not to jump her ass or beat her ass down. but I garantee if I had of been somewhere other than work the fight would have been on. That just totally pisses me off to see any kid treated that way. being at work was I right to stay out of it or should I have said something and put my job on the line? I actually had to leave the building so I didn't walk up and punch her effing lights out. and every customer in the store knew I was pissed they could see it on my face. so did I do right or wrong?
edit it ws the kids grandma not mom and I found out today she is a regular customer so I am going to kill her with kindness find out her name and where she lives and turn her into the cps. handled discretely.
