80: I have nothing wrong with being/getting/giving out a spank. I was spanked as a child aswell, and it did me a hell of a lot of good. But that isn't what they said. They said "beat her ass", which implies a lot more than spanking. I understand people screaming abuse is annoying--it gets on my nerves too--but that is what their comment came across as. Just thought I'd clear that up.
That's kind of extreme. Beating? Please don't go there. And it's not the fact that she talked to an ADULT (for all we know the OP isn't even one!) it's that she said something that hurtful at all, to anyone. Although it sounds like she's too young to know better. Children don't understand body image issues, they comment on people's weight all the time.
"beat her ass" is just an expression. No one says I'm gonna go spank my child now. stop being so damn dramatic. Oh child abuse! Child abuse! My first thought isn't OMG that woman is gonna beat her child to a bloody pulp. No!!!! And if u were "spanked" u would understand the expression and would have heard it before.
Goodness, somebody is sensitive! Kids say things that embarrass people - that's what they do. Sure you teach them right from wrong and teach them about other people's feelings but there's no need to make them feel super bad about it. Tell me you've never embarrassed your parents or something.
If it still had training wheels, it's probably a smaller bike meant for 7 year old girls, not one meant for adults.
OP, maybe now you can use that as motivation to lose some pounds. :)
