Wow. That is incredibly awful. I’m so sorry. I would be so mad I would probably file a police report, to be honest.

Wow wth. You’re right you probably wouldn’t have gotten any money from her. Still, I would get security on her ass and make a huge scene, just to teach her a lesson that she is responsible for her freaking kid.

Yeah, if someone broke my phone, I’d call the cops.  What a terrible “parent.”

I would have called the cops too. I also might have held onto my purse a little tighter though, too :/

 I am so sorry. That is awful. Maybe you can get a kit to just replace the face of it. They make kits for some of the phones, they are suppose to be fairly inexpensive. Good luck either way.

I definately would have told the mom what happened and tell her to keep her kid with her. I probably wouldn’t have filed a police report,but she would have deserved it if you did.

That is horrible!!! What’s worse is the mom’s lack of reaction. Personally, I would have involved security just to drive the message home but I wouldn’t have gone so far as to call the police. Perhaps this is one of those “like mother like daughter” cases unfortunately 🙁

By the way, how do you call the cops if the phone is broken? LOL I know, it was just the face…

Anyways, I would have had the cashier call security and made sure the mother was held responsible for what the child did. What was she doing in the store if she has no money? Stealing? Teaching her daughter to steal? mmmm?

I would have probably done what you did and depending on what day it was I might have made a bigger scene. 

I had my IPhone stolen from me about a month ago, at least you still have yours! Lol

Well it’s over now..but I SO understand the feeling of “damnit, if only I’d been wittier, or said this instead!” I’d be livid if that was me, hands down. But I’d also be shocked, because nobody goes into a store and expects a kid to go into their purse and grab their phone… So I can definitely understand your reaction.

That’s so ridiculous though. If my moron kid (don’t worry guys, I’m childless) broke someone’s phone, I’d definitely be embarassed. One because I wasn’t watching my child, and two because my kid broke someone’s property. 

Ugh, I feel bad for you!!

I’d file a police report honestly. Usually I am big on live and let live, but it sounds like this woman and her daughter behave this way because they can. Even if nothing much came from it it would be enough to hopefully teach them an important lesson.
