Ah Honey whoever said that to you is just nasty and cruel. I haven't got the faintest idea who you are or what you're like, but that statement says more about the person who said it than about you or your kids.
someone at the school gates. Just because my dog was whining and wagging her tail a lot when she saw ds running towards her. she was excited to see him. I could just die now. I hate it here and I hate me.
No, there is nothing wrong in that. The stupid woman was probably premenstrual or having a bad day and you probably got the brunt of it. Don't take it to heart, someone called me a bitch the other day when a dog was trying to bite my daughter and I almost kicked it (by accident).
apart from the fact that it doesnt matter if you live in a council house, a mansion or a pig shed, how does this woman know where you live? was it said to your face or within earshot? I am disgusted that she said this, I suggest she is the scum, you got to that school on Monday and hold your head up high honey, living in a council house doesnt make you any better or worse than any one else, this is just one narrow minded, judgemental moron, please dont let her upset you, you are ten times better than her.
Given the circumstances, she does just sound like someone who'd had a very bad day (or was drunk or on drugs) who decided to take it out on someone else and is uncivilised enough to verbally attack a complete stranger. You just happened to have had the bad luck be on the end of her wish to make someone else feel as bad as she obviously did. Don't let her make you feel bad about yourself, she could easily have seen someone else with a peoplewagon first and made a nasty comment about stuck up snobs who have to have a big car and talk like they've got a plum in their mouth, and they'd be coming onto Mumsnet explaining that they're not a snob, but this woman made them feel really bad... she just happened to see you first.
It's not personal, it's not about you, it's about her and her inability to behave in a normal manner when something happens to have upset her. She doesn't sound fit to be let out on her own, tbh. Please don't feel you need to take any notice of her - she's a loon.
ABSOLUTE loon, darling. I'm so sorry. Don't cry. Have a nice hot cuppa as suggested and get yourself a good chick flick for tonight and forget about what's passed today. [just accidentally run into her heels with your pushchair if you have one next time you see here...]
