If you didn’t already know it before you became a parent, you get pretty quickly acquainted with the fact that the world is full of as$h*les. People love to share their opinions on your life in situations they have no business being all tied up in.
That unsolicited opinion is a little easier to take from people who are a part of your life, those that you know love you and support you. I’m definitely not saying this is a good thing, but at least the blow of annoyance is softened a little because there’s a pre-existing relationship there.
That’s not even remotely the case for the times were a complete stranger – someone you’ve never seen before in your life and literally has no reason to be talking to you – chimes in and starts to talk about your parenting. Simply because they’ve seen a small snapshot of your life while out in public.
That’s what happened to this mom – a stranger stuck their nose into something and got real rude. She, however, needs to be more of the focus because her reply was so amazing, it’s perfection, and it would have only been better to see it go down in real life.
