OK, I am beginning to think that I am a magnet for stupid people, who as Iris Took put it, lack a filter.
I'm at the zoo today with Olivia and Emma and a friend and her daughter. My friend and I are talking when this COMPLETE STRANGER comes over to my stroller and does the following:
Stranger: "Oh, there's a little sliver of sun right on the baby's face." And she proceeds to TOUCH MY STROLLER AND MOVE THE SUN SHADE.
Me: Shocked, annoyed and ready to go nuts on the woman. "She's fine. Don't touch my stroller. Thank you."
(What I'm thinking: "You stupid, nosy, annoying pain in the ass. How dare you touch my stroller or tell me how to parent my kids. You're lucky there are a gazillion people around and that I'm a sane person, because otherwise I might just go a little nutso on you and start screaming like a woman on the edge.")
Stranger: "Oh." Walks away in a huff. (As if she should be offended).
Me: Loudly - "I hate it when strangers think they can tell me how to parent my children. I'm 34 years old and can handle it on my own."
I swear.....I was shocked.
I would NEVER go up to a stranger and tell them that their kid was getting too much sun or whatever. And I would certainly NEVER touch someone's stroller.
What the hell is wrong with people?
