@Lovemelovemyhorses:  I think it was directed at the OP, not the kid. She got in her face, not the kid’s. If someone annoys me, I tell them where to go too. I don’t see the big deal but everyone else does. I don’t want to argue about something that has no bearing on my life so I will agree to disagree.

@Lovemelovemyhorses:  I agree. The Hell’s Angels thing was meant to be a threat. I call BS though, and I’m betting the real Angels wouldn’t appreciate having their name thrown around by some wanna be theatening a little kid!

Wow, I have a loud mouth so it probably would have ended with her on the floor by the time I was done with her. Is she was “going to do something” why didn’t she do it…I hate people with empty threats. Makes her look like even more of a low life, not to mention directed towards a child.

@lalalyanne:  Who does that? Ignorant trash, that’s who. Yeah, she’s a real bad ass bullying a kid and his guardian at McDonald’s.

Real mother of the year material there. I’m not sure what impresses me more, her ignoring her kid about to do a swan dive off a bar stool, or letting him witness her threatening people who were only trying to help him avoid an accident.

@MrsPanda99:  When one approaches you in a needlessly aggressive manner and makes it a point to identify themselves as part of a gang and threatens to “do” something, I think you would be a right idiot to think their intention was to speak to a manager.

The woman was acting in a threatening, bullying manner. it’s not nice to threaten people. It can scare them, like it did in this case – so I would say that is harm done.

WTF.

I don’t get it…I mean, I don’t get wtf is wrong with people.

The other day at the mall, I was hanging out with my Fiance and our best guy friend in some comfy chairs, and I had my feet curled up under me and my shoes were touching the seat, and this special needs ADULT came up to me and told me I needed to put my feet down or security was going to come give me problems. You know how I responded? I smiled and said “Thanks for the warning!” and put my feet down. The guy was super happy that I listened to him, and he even said I had a beautiful smile.

How hard is it to respond to a stranger with kindness? And if you can’t give them that, just ignore them.

OP you did the right thing and I hope that nothing like this ever happens to you or that poor kid again. ๐Ÿ™

Hell’s Angels, lol. I would have laughed when she said that but I’m from Detroit.

@nedaussie:  I’m not rying tothread jack here, but, I have to wonder sometimes.

I have a Godson who is congitively disabled. He is the sweetest little boy, who loves everyone, loves life, and is thrilled by the simplest things. Honestly, I feel like he should be considered the “normal” one, and the rest of us impaired for not being able to be like that.

Those parents you encounter have special needs….specifically someone needs to give them a swift kick in the head for having such crappy personalities.

@lalalyanne:  What a f**khead. Seriously! Who does that? It’s like the schoolyard “my dad is bigger than your dad” BS. I have a lot of kids at work tell me random things, I don’t see them as annoying though. It’s sweet to hear their observations of different things. And it’s not like the boy you were looking after was at all rude (just pointing out that Ms HA’s kid was acting like a savage!). I’ve dealt with special needs kids too, they can get noisy and stressed, and I get annoyed when I see people giving the parents (or the kids) strange looks. Their job as a parent is already hard enough without dealing with people that lack compassion or understanding of the fact that special needs kids have special needs!

There’s some scary people in this world ๐Ÿ™

@lalalyanne:  Mind. Blown. Who says stuff like that about some harmless kid?! I would’ve had serious difficulty in not blowing up in her face, but you did the sensible thing in getting out of there.

It also saddens me to hear the nasty things PPs have experienced. People can be awful.

@Bridey77:  “She and her husband might be Hell’s angels, but the first thing that came to mind when I read your post was “POSER”! My money is on her being FOS. Its more likely they fantasize about being Hell’s Angels when they ride their dirt bike.”

I thought this too. I should also say that if my husband and I saw this, he would probably card out and then it would be smackdown time, with me having his back. Like PP says, one day then all psychos meet an even nastier psycho…

@lalalyanne:  Provided the kid said it the way you said he did, I would have used it as a learning opportunity for my own kid (not that I’d let my kid climb on furtniture). Also, if I had an issue I’d go to the adult, who was obviously on her way over, as opposed to a kid. I know you said he has special needs but that’s not always obvious. You can’t always see a disability. It’s possible she didn’t know but it’s still no excuse. 

Either way, you were there and I was not. I just wouldn’t let someone ruin my day or stress me out. I’m big on ignoring annoying people or laughing in their stupid faces ๐Ÿ˜›

@blushpinkbride:  I would have been laughing my ass off. People say all kinds of shit. The bark is usually worse than the bite. Let them run their stupid mouths.

Like I said, I get everyone is freaking out. I’m not. And no amount of PMs will make me. We can agree to disagree especially about the not so subtle calling me an idiot. I appreciate the sentiment but I’d still like to move on.
