Last night we were coming home late and it was getting too late to cook something for dinner from scratch, so I pulled into the local super market parking lot.
My daughter and I hopped out of the van and walked around to the other side to let the wee dude out.
I had noticed an older woman across from us getting into her car and another guy riding a shopping cart to his.
All of a sudden I hear the guy start laughing out loud and I look up to see what was so funny.
The woman that had gotten into her car and now had pulled along side our van. She wound down her window and started talking to me. I couldn’t quite hear her, so I leaned towards her passenger window and asked her to repeat herself.
“Your sweet little daughter just gave me the middle finger!”
I have NEVER given ANYONE the middle finger (in front of my kids), so as to where she picked that up, completely baffles me!
I turned around and my daughter apologized to me, but I had her immediately apologize to the lady. I was so embarrassed!
She wouldn’t tell me why she did it and stuck to me like glue while we grabbed our groceries.
Eventually, on the way home, she confessed and said that the lady made a mean face at her. Perhaps she did…she did look pretty scowly. An example of BRF (bitchy resting face).
Another lesson learned…don’t try to sneak something behind Mum’s back ’cause you’ll ALWAYS get busted.
Oh, and be kind to others. Sometimes it pisses them off more.
