Oh the things they say [Part 2]

I posted before about "oh the things they say."

Well, here's another. Except, I'm not talking about things that Erica had said, or other kids for that matter. Nope, I'm talking about adults. Well, one adult.

My sister was visiting a little bit ago. While here, she and Erica and I went out for Breakfast. Really, my daughter was super behaved. Sure she's energetic, but she wasnt jumping around or pounding the table, or crying/screaming/whining. She was great.

Towards the end of our meal, an elderly couple was seated in the booth behind us. The wife was sitting on the opposite side of Erica, and something must have ticked her off... though I'm not sure what. Anyway, she switched seats with her husband in order to get away from Erica.

And then she said, "I hate kids."

What the?!?!?!?

I felt like saying, "Yeah, so do I. They're just awful, aren't they?"

Let me back that up w/ explanation: I LOVE MY CHILD. And in general, I like other kids as well. No hate going on. BUT I thought to say it just so the lady would know I'd heard. But I just let it go. Erica hadn't heard it; my sister hadn't heard it. And I was actually way too shocked to say anything.

Good grief!

Well, gotta go. Erica has dance class tonight. Last week she was SUPER-DUPER good. I'm hoping for a repeat of that tonight.

I always thing of things I wish I'd said after the fact, but I'm not a quick on my feet thinker. I just don't know if I'd have been able to keep my mouth shut, though. You should've said, I hate idiots! ;)

I know! She was such a pain! SHE was rude. Erica didn't do anything. Sure she was chattering away about something, but she wasn't being loud about it! And she wasn't wiggling or bouncing. That lady was just plain rude.
