and, in the same vein, to the not so yummy mummy at the soft play who wouldnt let me share her table to breastfeed my crying baby because she was saving the seats for her friends...thanks a bunch for your empathy...

She said to her son who was about 5 but whilst looking at me as she walked past me on the path back from the beach ", and you musn't pick wild flowers must you poppet...". It wasn't what she said but how she said it (v patronising). My DS had just picked a dandelion.

I am really not a paranoid person, I know she was directing it at me. And I do know you mustn't pick wild flowers but dandelions are pretty prolific, are they not?

Riven, that is inexcusable!!!!

saggy...i cannot stand the smugness I struggled on a low sofa to feed she came over to pick up some shoes and said, over her shoulder, i could have had a chair you know....really? could I? do you feel better now for being a cow? bitch...(she had no free chairs by the way...all full of braying hair flickers...)

bookswapper Sun 17-Aug-08 09:33:32

riven...that is awful

We went camping last week and 3 times other parents were a bit snotty. Bad run? Are parents becoming more unfriendly/judgemental of other parents?

My DH let our DS (nearly 7) have a sip of his Coke and another Mum said "he won't sleep tonight, you may a s well have given him Red Bull". WTF???? Her kids were merrily slurping away gets on Fruit Shoots....

Really gets my goat that we can't all just chill and live and let live without the need to point score to make ourselves feel better.

Loving the 'braying hair flickers' - do your kids go to our school?

bookswapper Sun 17-Aug-08 09:59:39

not quite the sunglasses on the head, turned up collars and single strand of pearls type...but wannabes...take their kids to the jo jingles class at the local private school in preference to church hall types....can you tell i have studied this? grin
you can spot them because they have no manners

To the snotty woman in padstow, so glad that Arabella and Sebastian have such nice table manners. And when you commented, 'never mind, there's still time to learn...' when DD was eating a *cornish pasty with her hands* shows you for the stuck up cow you really are.

Pasties are supposed to be eaten with your hands, silly woman....

I don't think it's particularly parents who are becoming more unfriendly/judgemental, I think it's just people in general.

Unfriendly children turn into unfriendly teenagers who eventually turn into unfriendly parents. Sad but true.

To all the mums who look at me in shock when I put dd's reigns on.... NO I do not think she is a dog but I would sooner her wear these (and walk nicely in front on me) than run under a buss, so stop tutting you bh's

MummytoWillow Sun 17-Aug-08 19:46:09

Lardy - Absolutely nothing wrong with reigns, I'm going to get some for my DD when she does eventually move her bum off the floor! Safety comes first!

mammyjo Sun 17-Aug-08 19:54:18

Definitely nothing wrong with reins, I am going to get some for my 16 month old dd as she is so fast off the mark! Without doubt they are better than her running into the road.
It annoys me that some parents feel it is their right to pass judgement on others, and always in such a condescending tone. Sod off and mind your own business you braying hair flicker! (Never heard that saying before but I like it!!)

cadelaide Sun 17-Aug-08 19:55:52

Children have to pick dandelions, it's the law.

saggyhairyarse Sun 17-Aug-08 20:03:37

Exactly cadelaide, had he even got close to a poppy (not that there were any) or any other wild flower then I would for stopped him but a blinking dandelion!!!!

As for reigns, I did buy them for my DS1 but never really needed them, with DD she is a lazy bugger and happy to sit in the pram but DS2 is all over the shop and he wears them for his safety!

Octothechildherder Sun 17-Aug-08 20:21:56

please forgive me for all the terrible tings my children do in public for the remaining 3 weeks ....

I had an awful experience on the 'other side' not long ago - was at a soft play centre - in th eball pool with ine and a little boy who clearly had some special needs grabbed the full squash jug off our table onto the floor and then started licking it off the floor (I have never been so mortified for the child, the mother or myself) - at which point I shouted to the mother (nicely) and she went and picked him up. She then apologised and asked if I wanted the jug replaced - so I said yes. This obviously made her cross, she bought another and stormed out shock I didn't feel bad for asking for another jug as would have done so myself if my child had done it to someone else.

ooh just needed to get it off my chest ...

thefortbuilder Sun 17-Aug-08 21:32:43

hmmm i regularly wear sunglasses on head but ds1 had reigns...but i don't bray grin

actually if anyone wants them email me at lysetteparbhu at yahoo dot co dot uk as he now doesn't need them

MERLYPUSS Sun 17-Aug-08 21:47:49

To the braying hair flicker who cruised past my car, wound her window down and said to the child in the passenger seat 'these people who use disabled spaces just because they have to get buggies out of the boot and aren't really disabled'. Like I am not allowed to be a mum because I am disabled.
Pass was clearly displayed in windscreen. I think she just saw double buggy and came to the wrong conclusion. I still wanted to ask her if she was the f**king parking police.

ilovemydog Sun 17-Aug-08 21:50:44

Merypuss - don't you wish you had a snide comment ready for people like that? Grrrrr.

bookswapper Sun 17-Aug-08 21:53:57 will bend the hinges something shocking...get an alice band grin wink
