Today I took my 3 dd's to Spotlight for a few items to make invites for an upcoming event. dd3 who is 4 weeks was needing to be held as she's had a few crying days now.
Dd1 collected all the items for me, and then realised we had too much and needed a basket. There was an EMPTY basket sitting underneath one of those price checker thingys. No one else was around.
Dd put the items in the basket and was just scanning the price of some lace for me.
A lady came around the corner, literally started screaming/screeching at dd1, at first I couldn't make sense of what she was saying but it then became clearer "you stole my basket" over and over.
Dd1 stood like a stunned fish, while I stepped up and said "sorry, excuse me, back down from my child". Dd1 then said "I didn't think I did anything wrong, sorry, I wasn't stealing, I promise".
Lady proceeded to scream at dd1 (10 years old), I have a bub in my arms, dd1 keeps saying "I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I didn't think I was stealing".
This 'woman' then spat on my daughter. Deliberately. Hocked it up, and spat on my daughter.
Immediately I asked dd2 (9 years) to hold dd3 for me. I don't know what I thought I'd do, but I was shaking. Absolutely livid. This woman stood there with her arms crossed looking smug. Other customers and a staff member stopped. A lovely lady gave dd1 a tissue and held her under her arm.
I felt like dropping this woman on her backside. I didn't. I did however get very close to her face and advise her to never ever spit on anyone, let alone a child again. She laughed in my face and turned to walk off. Store member then asked her to leave.
I'm sitting here still thinking about it, so freaking angry. Over a store basket. Grrrr.
Sorry for the essay. Had to get it out. Any advice? What would you have done?
