Why can't people just mind their own business!!!


OMG! I'm so peed off ATM. Sorry this is just a rant post.... Just needed to let off some steam!
Me and OH had just walked into Big W(like target and tesco etc). LO was sitting in the shopping cart. We had just come from a food store and had bags in it. Suddenly a lady comes running up to us screaming NO NO the 'bags'! OH and I thought we dropped a grocery bag and immediately look in our trolley. She starts pointing to my LO's head and BACK and said his back is too soft to be sitting in the trolley. My son is 10 months old and can sit unaided since 5 months. OH said his fine and that LO is alright. She kept saying no no his not strong enough and is too small! I'm like his 10 months his not too small(minimum requirement is 6 months and 5kg and LO is 8 kg). She was persistent and still nagging us and OH told her to leave us alone. She left and that was that. We were a bit pissed of but just shrugged it off.
While walking around in the corner of our eyes we see someone staring at us and following us! There was that woman shaking her head! OH says what do you want?! She's like Look at his head! LO is sitting upright holding onto the trolley like a normal baby! OH says OUR BABY us fine leave us alone why do you keep bothering us? We are HIS parents stop being nosey! WHY are you stalking US? She goes and says your baby's back is too soft! OH then replies go have your own baby stop messing around in other peoples business. The lady suddenly just shut up. OH knew he struck a nerve. He said out really loud but not screaming yet "Stop stalking us!!! why don't you make yourself your OWN baby and leave MY baby alone!" She lturned red and looked like she was gonna cry! She went off real quick almost bumping into another couple with an even smaller baby in a shopping cart. She looked at that baby and almost ran off!

She didn't even have her own kids and she was telling us how to raise our kid. We were fine the first incident but she had the nerve to follow us around?!

You are right to be annoyed that woman had no right to bother you like that. Some people can be so rude. I once had someone come and tell me my baby was crying as if I didn't know. It does seem from her reaction though that there may be reasons why she doesn't have her own children and that was perhaps the reason for her behaviour.

LO has been sitting in the shopping trolley since she was just over 9 months and she absolutely loves it. She leans forward to see everything, holding the bar so her back isn't against the trolley anyway. I've never heard about soft backs lol.

I've never heard of soft backs either, she was around her mid thirties to early forties and had a strong Asian accent. I'm Asian too but was born in Australia so I thought of it like an older Asian thing, like how you have to be confined inside your own house for a month post partum. I would've died of boredom being stuck at home for that long!

Once had someone come up to me and tell me my baby is black (he's mixed race). Er.... Thanks. As if I hadn't noticed.

WTH? People are so weird! My friend once had an old lady come up to her and say "it's so nice to see a girl with a white baby for once"!! The funniest/worst thing was that her baby IS mixed race! He's half middle eastern but looked quite light skinned when he was tiny.

Yesterday we were close to a helicopter taking off and the wind/noise startled LO and made him cry, as I walked by some people, while soothing him, one lady said very loudly 'you should try giving him a dummy'
I mean WTF.. He cried for about 30 seconds and because a bloody helicopter just took off about 50 yards away!!! Lol!!!!

I think most people don't speak up when another person makes judgement on their child. OH is NOT that type! He doesn't like to be pushed around even by his own family(who ganged up on us bullied us and said we were too strict for not letting him have mcdonalds fries at 6 months).

Mines been in a cart/trolley since 7 months and the only issue we've had is her trying to bite the bar that you hold to push the thing hahaha
