Weird parent at school

I was friends with a Chinese lady at my daughters school. The Chinese lady's daughter fell out with another child at school, who's mum i also spoke to. Because I talked to the other mum,the Chinese lady now won't speak to me! My daughter and the Chinese lady's daughter are still friends at school and play together at school,but if we walk past the little girl whist she is with her mother,the child turns away and looks at the grass so she doesn't have to say hello! Yet play together every day at school. My daughter asked if she wanted to come and play,she replied 'I can't my mum doesn't know I play with you' . Our only sin was to walk with the other mum she had fallen out with,bizarre behaviour!!!

Is her ethnicity relevant?

What has her thnicity got to do with it?

What's her being Chinese got to do with anything?

Don't get involved with squabbles between children, or other parents being childish. And you could have told the same story using parent A and parent B, by the way.

I think the op has taken some sort of bet about how many subtle ethnic digs they can make in a post and lost.

HyvaPaiva Tue 10-Dec-13 21:11:55

I'm utterly confused at why you felt the need to point out her ethnicity four times in your OP.

How old is your DD btw? Now mine is in year 3 I've learnt not to care cos its pathetic.

What's the ethnicity of the other mum and why didnt you specify that?
Chinese mum

It is at times like these that I would turn to Chairman Mao's Little Red Book.

It has all the answers for understanding Chinese people and their actions.

My DDS best friend is Chinese. If I can help in any way by making wild generalisations please let me know. (Except she's not weird at all)

This is surely a wind up.

Did you say she was Chinese?

I am sure it was mentioned somewhere in your post but I can't be sure. Hmmm. Let me think, was it Russian, Portugese, Scottish or maybe French. No, I am sure it was Chinese.

I went to China a couple of times. Full of this kind of shit it was - especially the ladeez...

namechangesforthehardstuff Tue 10-Dec-13 21:30:05

I can't be sure but I think the consensus is YABU.

Binkyridesagain Tue 10-Dec-13 21:31:34

What ethnicity are you OP? We can then establish if this is a cultural thing.

Is it win a prize for the most times you can use the phrase "the Chinese lady"? You won OP, and your prize is a lifetime subscription to the Daily Mail.

maybe she just finds you a bit...... weird

I had a similar problem with an oriental gentleman who snubbed me in Woolworths in 1953 for smiling at an charming young coloured chap in the hosiery department. Odd bunch of furriners with their funny furrin ways..

Did I say the gentleman was oriental?

ZombiePenguin Tue 10-Dec-13 21:41:35

Definitely not a Kenyan lady? Or a French lady? I need definite answers...

You lot do make me laugh. Perhaps i find you funny because I'm Chinese?
