So yesterday I took the kids to Walmart to get groceries and supplies for my older son's birthday party. As we were checking out, DS1 laid on the rack that's under the cart where people usually put bigger items. This lady walks by and asks me "Do you know your child is under there" in this completely self-righteous snooty voice. I said "yes, of course I know where my child is". She then completely goes off on me loudly in front of all these people in the store and in line behind me, telling me "she's an OSHA inspector, and I need to be an F***ing mother to my child instead of trying to get him injured. What kind of mother does that to her kid?" I was mortified. Could not believe someone would be so blatently rude and loud enough for everyone to hear. She walked off so fast I didn't have time to comment back to her, but I really wanted to. 1. My son was under the cart ONLY while we were checking out. Not while I was pushing it around the store. The cart wasn't going to explode on him while we stood there. I am not an idiot. I realize he could fall out from that spot if he stayed there while I pushed the cart through the store. 2. I don't give a crap what your job is. Mind your business. If he was clearly in danger of hurting himself, fine, then you can let me know. But how about some TACT? Usually I don't get too worked up over unwanted advice, I just ignore it. This just made me sooooo mad though! The fact that she had to be sure everyone around heard her chewing me out...At least the customers behind me thought she was rediculous too, lol. Several of them told me I looked to be a great mom, and my kids were very well behaved. Even so. Sooo embarassed.
