So we were just at a local shopping centre in one of those free child play things, my little girl aged 3 was playing with this little toy that has one ball that you send through a maze...
This little boy similar age came over and tried to take the ball off her and she yelled' no that's my turn' I didn't say anything as she had waited for her turn and had just started playing with it and the boy just walked away not fussed when I went to the other side to check on DS who was up the back... I heard my Dd scream and looked around and this woman had my daughters finger and was holding it saying 'you share little girl' my Dd was trying to pull her finger free and since this woman wouldn't let go it was bending backwards.
I immediately walked up and said 'hey don't you dare touch my child' she says 'shut up it was just her finger and she yelled at my grandson' I stated if she had a problem with my daughter she was welcome to speak to me but reiterated that she was never to touch mine or any other child.
She then said 'your child is a brat and you can't be a bully all your life' to which I replied 'why not it's obviously worked for his grandmother' I told DD it was time to go which the lady said nastily to my Dd ' good idea Dd get out of here'
I walked away but I'm really fuming and I'm wondering if I should have said/ done something different. Dd was actually really shaken up by the whole incident. I have half a mind to report the incident to security (she had on one of the local stores uniforms) but I'm wondering if maybe that's going a bit far but I'm really upset
