Reasons I'm surprised I didn't get stabbed.

Overhead in a gas station bathroom near Statesville, North Carolina:

Little girl: Why don't you just shut up before I smack your face?
HER MOTHER: Oh yeah? Well you better shut up before I beat your bitch ass!

Me: *AUDIBLE GASP*
Girl Child: *EVEN LOUDER AUDIBLE GASP*

Mother and daughter exit the stall they are sharing. Little girl is approximately 3 years old.

I'm not kidding.

Mother, looking at me: I just don't know why kids don't act right!
Me: I have a pretty good idea why yours doesn't.


*END SCENE*

Wow... just... wow.

I'm closer to thirty than I comfortably admit to most days, and I know for a fact my mother would still give me a whipping if I spoke to her that way.

So, you actually said that? Didn't just think it? Then, good for you!

One thing I have found about getting older, (over 50,) is that one can speak one's mind with more impunity. Looking forward to seeing what you have to say at that age!

Wow. I am just speechless.


Love your comeback though.

I feel so sad about the life that girl's going to have. What a crazy mother. So glad you escaped unscathed. I bet you walked a little quicker than normal!
