    I cannot believe that a grown woman would spit on a child!?! That woman obviously wasn't brought up very well. You did a good job not to smack her down.

    That behaviour is absolutely disgusting, who does that to a child or thinks that is acceptable behaviour in anyway? I hope your DD's are ok OP, and they managed to settle to sleep alright.

    Get CCTV footage from outside and report her to police. That is 100% assault.

    I'll call spotlight tomorrow, because I'm still fuming. Her vip card (if she had one) would be useless, as she was asked to leave before she purchased anything. But maybe the carpark has cameras and they can grab her rego for the police?

    If I was spat on in my job, and I have been plenty of times (but usually by disgusting feral people), that person is arrested, and we have to give statements. It is really a yucky thing to do. MIL thinks I need to let it go and get over it, as it's a 'cultural' thing. I don't buy that for a minute.

    Cultural? What culture was she from? Fair enough in some cultures it's normal to say spit on the ground, but there aren't any cultures I know of that spit on people.

    I've never heard being a feral ********* referred to as a 'culture' before... :-/ I probably would've slapped her in all honesty. Sounds like you had much more restraint and probably did exactly what you should've done - especially if you're going to report her to the police.

    Go to the police ASAP. Also I would be following up with a gp as there is a risk of transmission of infection from bodily fluids. That's why cops treat spitting so seriously. I'm really sorry that happened to your family.

    Holy moly I'm so angry for you and your daughters, what a vile piece of work

    I applaud you for not smacking her down, I have no idea what I would have done in the same situation but I would have probably felt like shoving her and more!

    I'm livid and disgusted just reading that what sort of person does that.

    Kudos for showing enormous restraint I would have dropped her and quick as look at her in fact I think if I was in that shop witnessing that I would have knocked the spit out of her.

    What a monster, hugs to your DD and you and your other children who witnessed that filth.

    That is absolutely disgusting. I cannot believe an adult would do something so revolting over a shopping basket. I'm so sorry that your DD had this happen to her. I hope she's ok. I hope you are ok too xx
