Today, I went to a park and sat down next to this older lady. These kids started to fight and scream at each other. I leaned next to her and said, "Man am I glad those aren't MY kids." She turned to me and said, "Yeah, they're mine." FML

I agree as well. She would've got more angry if she wasn't thinking "Man, do i wish those weren't MY kids." Most mothers I know learn to have a good sense of humor.

It's fine to be judgmental about infuriating little monsters. Sometimes, that's the turning point after which parents finally start trying to be parents instead of letting their brats do whatever on their own. I know people to whose families that was greatly beneficial.
(They had a little monster, and she's now polite and well-behaved, only because people complained until the parents got ashamed enough that they started pulling away her game consoles etc. when she misbehaved, and 'magically' the kid decided she'd better stop misbehaving.)

That possibility is PRECISELY why OP should make that comment.

There's no point in complaining to a fellow suffering stranger, but if you complain to the person actually at fault for the problem, it's more effective.

In this case, effective might not be the proper word since it's likely the woman did nothing, but OP should have felt better after reminding the idiot parent that she should actually _parent_ her little brats.

imho the way you phrased what you said was stupid. all of you who says she deserves it are not that smart either. parents are supposed to be responsible for their kids not spoil them or let the kids run them. if not how would we differ from mud-flinging caves dwellers?
