Today, in a store, an obnoxious woman, swearing loudly and slapping at her out-of-control kids, was disrupting the whole place. I said to the cashier, "That nasty woman should leave the brats at home." She gave me a filthy look and said "Do you mind? That's my sister." FML

Leaving them at home means the mom has to choose between paying a baby-sitter/daycare a fortune (with the description of these kids I'd charge a fortune) or leaving them home alone... I don't think her insurance would cover all the damage they'd do.

I have two boys and they get out of hand some times and yell. You just gotta deal with it. You can't understand until you have kids. Used to hate screaming kids in the store, now I have them an understand. Of course I don't think I'd snap at them and make a scene. I pull them to the side and talk to the face to face at a voice level where only we can hear. People need to learn how to handle kids in public, but I've been there so I know what it's like. In sure people have said that about me. Haha who cares what they say tho!

Good idea, let them distrupt the store's customers and not tell anyone because we should assume they're relatives, great fucking idea.

Seriously, it's crap like this that that made me quit my old job...

C'mon there is a big difference between stating an opinion (like OP did) and politely asking an employee to deal with the troublesome characters. What he did was bluntly bitch an obnoxious lady out with no real purpose. I do agree that something must be said but not in the way that OP did

I know right, if anything complain to the obnoxious woman. It's like if you can control your kids and yourself then you shouldn't be out in public

When my 3 year old asks why kids are running around and acting up then what do you say? He has done this several times. Usually pretty loud too. If peoples kids behave so badly that a toddler notices they are heathens then something should be said. Even if a toddler is the only one with the guts to do it. I discipline my child. It's not hard. It's called being a parent. Teaching him how to properly behave in public and at home is my job. Some people just choose to skip work when it comes to their kids.

Why do people say this when no rights are in trouble/being infringed? If you stand up and say Fuck you Fuck off to a stranger then say freedom of speech why the hell do you need the freedom of speech part. Nothing bad is gonna happen if you don't.

If that was my sister, I would be embarrassed. I think I would call social services too. Lack of discipline from a young age causes kids to go wild. Slapping them after you've failed as a parent doesn't help.

I don't think you deserved it. Customers like that irritate everyone. Maybe she will pass the word along to her sister ;) Good for you for speaking your mind!
