You don't have to justify your parenting to anyone especially not that **** who probably didn't have kids himself and has no idea I'm thinking.
What a stupid thing for him to say. Did he want your child to get run out! 😬

Sorry you've had a rough day. In the heat of the moment I may have given the dude the bird... However about 30 minutes later I would probably sit back and think about whether I was too rough and cranky with my kid - do you feel you crossed a line? I can see scenarios where I might say something to a parent that was yelling abusively at their child (not saying you did this).

@VicPark I don't think I was at all. It's not like I was telling him off for being an idiot. I was telling him to watch out.
I do want to clarify a bit now that I have calmed down a bit.
We live in a small country town. The guy was in his 60s/70s.
He had listened to Ds1 ask to help by getting a trolley. Me say no but thank you to which Ds1 was going to loose it over. So I was trying to stop a meltdown and keep ds2 (still in the car) from trying to follow suit. So I let Ds1 go, left ds2 playing with my keys while I watched.
He had no idea what it takes me to do the shopping let alone have to go back.

Sometimes old people think their age is a license to say whatever. My Nan (god bless her soul) told me I was fat when I was a bridesmaid once. Told me I hadn't lost any of the baby weight when she first saw me after ds1 was born.

Honestly? I probably would have told him to eff off. Especially if I was already flustered and stressed. I don't possess my husbands calm and oh so polite way of putting people in their place unfortunately!

I would have ignored him.
However in the big scheme of life, not something that will matter to you on an ongoing basis - most likely
I don't suggest swearing or even engaging with this guy. I'm not sure what that would achieve.
Don't engage the crazy.
Cold stare followed by ignore.
