Q & A

My daughter and I were in the grocery store on her 16th birthday last week and she thoughtlessly touched a piece of food from the hot food bar and decided she didn’t want it so she put it back.  This woman walked up to my daughter and called her a “Bitch“!  I was so shocked and of course Rachel just wanted to get out of the grocery store as fast as possible and she cried all the way home.  Why would someone call a child a “Bitch“? I don’t understand. I don’t know how to explain it.

    • Thanks Annie, there was a legal reason I asked that. With that said first  I’m so sorry and my blood really boiled. How dare that person. Please do not in any way take this wrong but your a kinder person than I am. I would have told that person off so badly that they would have cried all the way out of the store.
      And then felt bad because my daught would have died of embarrassment so causing twice the worry.
      It is so hard when a person basically verbally or other attacks your child because I dad to say have always been one that mess with me ok I’ll deal mess with my kids and I’ll kick your a**! not always a great role model there. Sorry.
      I wish Annie there was an easy answer to this. I’m sure you handled it with her perfectly and it’s left you feeling upset and mad and open. I’m sorry for that too.
      But as a mom I know you helped her. And there are such stupid people in the world that they will verbally attack a child. Ooooohhhhh I’m mad sorry.
      Please tell her from me happy birthday and growin ups sometimes don’t act very growin up expecially when education was short in their own unhappy lifes.
      Hugs big time to you both
      Cris

    • Crud! I wouldn’t be happy if your daughter or anyone else handled food and put it back,
      but what an extreme reaction that woman had! I’m sorry your daughter was exposed to it and hope she feels better now?

    • Wow!  I’d like to think that I would have stopped the woman from walking away and ask her to explain her reasoning to your daughter for calling her a bitch.  (sounds good but I probably would have called her a fat bitch back!).  I know, not very adult but hey?

      Sorry your daughter had to experience that.  Or perhaps you could have walked over to her table and started coughing all over her plate.  LOL  Ok, I’ll stop.  She’ll get hers.

    • No reason for the name calling at all!  That’s inexcusable.  Our local mini mart has a sign right on the hot food, “you touch it, you buy it“, but I wouldn’t go calling someone names over such an incident.

    • WOW! 1st off I would have to agree with the woman if the child did touch the food with her bare hands she “WAS WRONG!” for placing it back with the other food, the mother should have corrected her child in doing that, but that is sad that the woman had to result to name calling and especially to a child of all people.  

      Now on the other hand if, and that is a huge if it was my child and they called her a bit** those are fighting words and it would have been on from that point, call me what you will, but never to my child.

    • I agree, the B word was uncalled for; sounds like it came from someone with a limited vocabulary and I would have reacted with a few choice words of my own. However, touching public food with bare hands then putting it back would warrant some sort of negative response from someone who witnessed it and I would have explained that to my daughter.

    • I agree with Kyah..having witnessed many incidents in our local Whole Foods, my reaction is to find an employee, point out the person to them and let the store deal with it.  Now, in your daughter’s case it was unintentional, and that customer was not at liberty to say anything to her.
