Get a life ...

Saturday, June 15, 2013

.. is what I said to the totally unpleasant individual who b**tchd about my children when I was at the supermarket this afternoon. I was with my 3 young children who were pretty close by me and the trolley. They were not misbehaving at all (and I'm pretty strict)

Our crime?? Semi blocking a little part between a display and aisle (not more than 5 meters in length) - there is equal space on the other side (very hard to describe in writintg but it's a display put in the middle of the wide supermarket space) and the tuts and comments that came from him were so over the top that I told him to "get a life" as I was so fed up with a foul look and comments over something so utterly trivial.

The irony?? it would have been exactly the same if I had been on my own. I only said anything because he was blaming the children for the 'blockage' ...

Anyway, that's my trivial 'complaint'

I hope all y'all are having a super day xox

    sometimes when we hear people being petty we want to respond in the same manner. i know adults who are clueless and block aisles and stuff. i try to get out of peoples way instead of visiting. but sometimes i get clueless and leave my cart in the way. i just move it and go to the nect item on my lisy.

    What a great role model you are for your children. You stood up to a bully by telling him to get a life! Nice job, mom! Actually someone that complains about such a trivial matter has no life and he should try to incorporate some quality into his lifestyle. Way to go! emoticon emoticon

    Sometimes it feels good to stand up to people who are taking themselves way too seriously or who need a lesson in manners. It's good that you said something and I hope it made this person realize how ridiculous he was being. :-)

    I am sure he probably complains about all sorts of petty things. He is probably just a very unhappy individual. Don't let him rile you, it's not worth your time. Have a great rest of the day/weekend. emoticon
