But why why why do some parents (and I use this term very loosely!) see nothing wrong with dragging a toddler to a effing Rated R movie???
Dh and I went xmas shopping and decided my pregnant butt needed a break from the crowds and bustling around.. so we took in Sinister at the cheapo show connected to the back to Target...
Aside from the fact that the atmosphere is completely inappropriate for children let alone those under 2 friggin years old... this wonder of a mother had finally had enough of the whining from her young toddler about 20 minutes in and literally yanked the poor thing up, dragged him in to the hall, and proceeded to start smacking him around (I could hear slapping sounds followed by his whining turning to screaming) and I just sat there bristling and uncomfortable as hell listening to the whole exchange.
I'm wondering why the theater even allows children in a rated r show. So effing stupid.
Now I'm an anti-spanker and this post totally ISNT about spanking at all or how I feel about it... But under what circumstance could even a spanking mother justify behaving this way toward a 16 month old BABY???? She forced him in to an inappropriate enviornment and expected him to effing sit still for almost two hours? What the hell did she expect was going to happen? I wanted to cry and kill this woman all at the same time.
I always mind my own business... always. I am not confrontational whatsoever but this was impossible to ignore and went on for another half hour right outside the door.... you could hear everything and it made me miserable (can't imagine how the poor kid felt) I left the theater in a terrible mood. Thanks jerk.
And I'm just at a loss as to what kind of moron parents would so blatantly and shamelessly treat a baby like shit right out in public.... end rant.
Have you ever witnessed bad parenting so over-the-top ridiculous that you went against your 'mind my own business' instinct and went off on someone? If there was ever a time I wanted to flip the hell out on a bitch... it would have been today.
