Another Rant: Rude People

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Daughter's Brownie Advancement Ceremony was tonight. What a bunch of rude parents!

I'm not a prude or anything, but there was a mom there who finally "opened up" to my husband and I. I have seen the woman almost every week for the past two years; she has never said "Hi" to me, despite my attempts. Tonight, she's chatting away to my husband and I, about high school, and the different names they used for vagina back then. She rattled off a list of half a dozen slang terms. Huh? You're finally talking to me, and this is it? I guess I haven't missed much the last two years!

So, we're outside in a park, and I stand up to get ready to tape our daughter when she was about to be called up, and the people who parked their lawn chairs behind us start telling me to move away, that they can't see. Wait, you sat behind us... So I walk over about ten feet, to another area with a break in the people behind me (made sure!), and the person behind me on the right starts with "Excuse me? Excuse me?" asking me to "move six inches to the left." What? I'm just there for a few seconds, people, to tape my daughter. Can you wait 30 seconds, or move your chair to the right six inches? I wish I'd told them all to go to hell. Ha! But I'm not rude.

Not a saint... I told the second person, "Why don't you go talk to the people over there - I can't film my daughter over there, either!" And then my husband started hollering, "Move farther! Move farther!" waving his arms for me to go even farther, making fun of the people (which was pretty funny and made me laugh).

Daughter had a really fun time, too, even though she got a bloody nose playing on the playground. She was riding the teeter-totter like a broom... that's my girl!

Too bad about the rude parents. Some people are just dense. I would've at least said "Ummm...can I just finish taping MY DAUGHTER walking across stage?"

Then called them all hoo-hoos.
post #19 of 20
Hoo-Hoos...

Not to be confused with Ho-Hos, the chocolate snack cake. I hope.
