Oh I totally agree we do. I came very close to striking DS lay week and ended up pelting his dummy across the room very hard (in the opposite direction). It scared the bejesus out of both us. I really do get that there could have been 100 (or 2 or 5) things that led to that moment in woolies.
But part of the reason that I felt/feel so awful is because it was a chain of events started by me, which is why I started this thread.
Also, to clarify cos I realise I didn't write it properly, the mother didn't slap her daughter actually in the face - it was more like she slapped her on the arm then held on and shook her for a second. Still unpleasant but nothing a like a slap in the face. I would have made a report if that had occurred.

You didn't do anything wrong, I would've said something too. So many people eat fruit & veg without washing it and I wouldn't be impressed if I had eaten that cherry.
The mum overreacted and acted horribly to her poor kid and to you. It's disgusting behavior

I had to come back and find this thread after reading an article in the current women's weekly. It was about a mother who was arrested for slapping her son in the face for taking a bite out of an apple while they were shopping.
I really thought it was the same incident mostly because I couldn't imagine this being a common occurrence. So sad that this sort of thing happens.

Some people are just f***wits to put it plainly. Some people are just bullies. I had a woman go ballistic at my kids in a shopping centre playground. I said to my boys just walk away I don't know what happened but just walk away. She turned and started screaming at me my boys had her boy on the ground and were kicking him which is really out of character for my boys… I mean i go to loads of parks with them and they never get in fights ever. She just went ballistic at me and i was like hey lady don't you dare yell at my kids. She came up to my face leant down (she was a step above me) shoved her finger in my face and screamed "You don't wanna get me started!" I let her have it and I pointed my finger in her face and repeated it back to her.
She really wasn't counting on someone standing up to her but seriously no one bullies my kids or anyone or me and doesn't get a serve from me. I guess I don't have too much of an issue with conflict but she scurried off when she realised that she probably shouldn't be screaming at me considering i'm muscular and covered in tattoos… I wouldn't actually hurt anyone though lol… But security guard told me her husband is a bikie and I was just like hmmm ok so you think you can go around and bully people because no one will say anything.
So I think it's good you guys said something because I've dealt with people like this before and they solely do these things because they know that people are too scared to confront them. My experience is with these people are they are just jerks and you have to put them in their place because at the end of the day they are cowards.
