The Incident

So...being a bitch...I am not afraid to comeback when someone pushes my buttons. I have been told that my tactics for dealing with other people are well...unusual. Some tell me that I am too soft..while others think I am down right total demon.

I'll let you decide.

I'm going to share with you what happened today.

I got out of my car and went inside to get some juice for my kids. The store was not very busy, there were probably only about 10 people including the employees in this huge grocery store. William was not in a very good mood. Ally, was tired but happy. We started down an isle when this girl, about my age I think, came around the corner and started looking at juices. She looked much like she hadn't bathed in a few days. She was thin, and her clothes were more of "Hooker Wear"
I could tell she was on something, her eyes were red, and besides that...she had that look. The same look my dad would get when he was on Crank. She sneezed into her hand, and used her hand to wipe her nose. Then, as she moved on down the isle, she spotted me and asked me if I knew which isle she could find the medicine. I pointed to the way and she said thanks..then moved forward. I turned a bit so that I wasn't "looking at her" but still able to see her out of the corner of my eye. She walked up to my cart and said hi to my kids. Then, she started to reach down to touch my daughter. I turned fairly quickly and asked her not to touch my kids.
A. She didn't know them, and they didn't know her.
B. She just got done wiping her nose with those hands...and I don't want my kids getting sick. I have a cold and even I wash before cooking, picking them up, and so on.
C. She just looked gross.

She actually asked me what my problem was. I look at her and I told her the truth..

"First of all, you look like a damn hooker on 4 different drugs, you just sneezed and used those hands that were about to touch my daughter to wipe your nose, and lastly, I don't know you, you don't know me and there's no reason for you to pick up my daughter."
She says "I'm no hooker, and yes I am sick which is why I look like I am on drugs, and your daughter was about to fall out of the cart. So you should thank me that I was here because she could have fallen. Your son undid the belt and if I hadn't been standing here... never mind you ungrateful bitch"

I looked down at the cart and she was right. Will had unbuckled the seat belt and Ally was sitting on her knees...

I started to feel bad. Here I was, ready to pounce on this woman because she looked disgusting and my inner voice told me she was trouble...yet, she was only trying to help. I started down the isle to follow her and apologize. I rounded the corner in time to see her move down the next to last isle across the store. I followed, at a slow speed, and once I got there, I sat the cart next to the rack, and as I looked, she was standing there looking at chips. This struck me odd since she had asked me were the medicines where. Then, I saw the older woman with a kid in her basket. She was telling the girl about the next isle and squatting down next to several 24 packs of cola. She was looking at them, and then moving, one at a time to the bottom of her basket. As she did this, the nasty chick moved closer to the child, and undid the belt in one swift movement. The other hand went to the woman's purse sitting next to the child. I saw her reach in and then I made my move.

"Get your filthy hand out of that woman's bag" I shouted.
She didn't see me, and started a protest..
"I wasn't in her purse, her daughter was about to fall out and..."
That's when I walked up. I yelled for a manager, someone to help me with her. She was a thief. She didn't get anything out of my purse because I was to quick to turn. So she tried the same trick on another woman. Once she got a good look at who was speaking she started to run. She did get out of there before anyone could really catch her. I moved my cart down next to the woman's and went after her, but she was already gone.

I told the manager what had happened. HE said he would call the police and run video. The other woman thanked me and took her items to the checkout.

I learned that when your instincts tell you something ....you should listen...
I also learned I need to be a bit more careful when going off on someone. Had she been telling the truth...I would have been an ass....

HUGS~~~MANDY

You are right, you have to trust your instincts, especially with your kids around.

I was feeling a little sorry for her as I sit here sniffiling with a cold. Ahwchew!

As is usually the case, trusting your instincts is most often the best form of guidance, especially maternal instincts. When it comes to protecting young children, better safe than sorry, is a great guiding rule. While I might have chosen a different way to express my concerns reguarding how this woman appeared, we all have to express ourselves in ways that are right and appropriate for us in a given situation. Your awareness that you might have overreacted and misjudged her based on looks alone and a brief glimpse of her behavior shows mature awareness on your part. Your following up on those thoughts and feelings as well lead to even more sound judgement, and helped make the world a better place for all involved. Good blog and great work.

Yeah, that's a lesson I keep learning. My instincts are almost never wrong, but I'm very logical, thoughtful person, so I always want some kind of validation. I usually end up finding out I was right in the first place.

always good to see you on your proverbial toes. i'm told that helps accentuate some of a woman's better attributes. like your intuition, among others. ;^)

Trust in your feelings, and they will always lead you to right.Although sometimes you have to look past someones outward appearances I have learned over the years you can read a person through there eyes,and there actions. I talk to woman with chirdren all the time in stores and what not but never ever try to touch or reach for there children, there not mine and its just not right.

Hi Mandy,

I just dropped by to say miss you and I am letting my profile die (hell just dont have the time or inclination anymore so I guess once the silver expires I will just leave it). I hope you and the kids are well and keep up the great rants. If you ever need a hand or need to vent let me know AdultFriendFinder

Good read, sometimes its easy to judge a book by its cover, yet sometimes the book is trash.

Even if the individual was doing good, she had no right or reason to be touching your kids.

Good for you.
