I boil up quite slowly... but would it have been worse to tell her what a cow she was?

are you the woman who wants to get a co-op worker fired by any chance ?

It's all a bit moot, really. Presumably, you didn't.

BooyHoo Sat 04-Jun-11 00:35:21

what has her size got to do with anything?

tallwivglasses Sat 04-Jun-11 00:38:04

Would what have been worse? What did she say?


vanessasmum Sat 04-Jun-11 00:39:14

i never said i wanted her fired, which i don't. but it is interesting that you bring it up,
it isn't entirely irrelevant, is it?

i don't think i should have stood there and not responded when she was abusive toward my kid... what does that tell her, that i won't stand up for her?. but equally i think it would not have been good for her if i had to a row with the woman... where is the balance?

Oh how funny. It's nice people are trying to emulate me. I'm so flattered.

vanessasmum Sat 04-Jun-11 00:40:51

good point booy, i take that back.

vanessasmum Sat 04-Jun-11 00:44:07

she said " I've only got one good leg! Jesus Christ!" the metro was quite crowded, and we has a lot of bags, and she was standing in the luggage area. I was quite shocked.

vanessasmum Sat 04-Jun-11 00:46:41

And the swearing bit?

vanessasmum Sat 04-Jun-11 00:48:30

my kid, i mean, she said sorry in just the right tone of apologetic and shocked. i was very proud of her

LineRunner Sat 04-Jun-11 00:48:49

usual suspect Have a tequila with a mescal worm in the bottom. I find that does the trick on the odd occasion.

BooyHoo Sat 04-Jun-11 00:48:49

it doesn't sound abusive to me. sorry but i think calling her a fat cow for that is a massive over reaction.

LineRunner Sat 04-Jun-11 00:49:15

I would rather be called Jesus Christ than a fat cow.

tomhardyismydh Sat 04-Jun-11 00:49:55

x post you are not the other op.

also jesus christ is not swearing. is it? probably not the language I would want a 6 yr old to hear granted but not enough to then call her a cow in front of a 6 yr old. double standards

BooyHoo Sat 04-Jun-11 00:50:01

you were proud of your child for apologising in teh right tone? hmm

erm, we are supposed to apologise when we hurt people, it isn't above and beyond teh call of duty. nothing to be proud of.

tomhardyismydh Sat 04-Jun-11 00:51:30

x post again, grr you lot are quick tonight.

BitOfFun Sat 04-Jun-11 00:51:35

This place is going to the dogs. The fat racist dogs, apparently.
