I just witnessed the world's
most spoiled brat and her parents earlier today. I was horrified by the
behavior of these folks!
Ran to Hellmart with my son because he had a gift card. Naturally he wanted a new toy, like any other six year old would. While in the area, I noticed some brat, about eight years of age, riding around on a bike. She wasn't being careful either. She nearly ran over my son, another kid who looked to be about three or four, and finally rammed the bike into the cleaning person's cart. (You know the one, with the garbage bag, other cleaning supplies, etc.)
Naturally Cleaner told her, very nicely, to not ride the bike in the store. She could get hurt and no one wanted that. Next thing I know is Brat is screaming bloody murder. I'm 95% certain she was heard at the front of the store. Her parents rounded the corner in a rush.
Mom: What did you do to my baby?!
Cleaner: All I did was tell her to stop riding the bike in the store. We don't want her to hurt herself.
Dad: You can't tell my daughter what she can and cannot do.
Cleaner: It's store policy, sir.
Brat: *pointing to Cleaner* He hit me!! *starts fake crying*
Cleaner: I assure you, I did not touch her. She ran the bike into my cart, so I told her to stop riding in the store. It's the rules.
Mom: *ranting and raving about how shitty Cleaner is*
Dad: *ranting and raving about getting Cleaner fired*
Cleaner: *trying hard not to roll his eyes*
This went on for a bit, and the whole time I thought about saying something to the parents. When I finally worked up my courage, I was already beaten to the punch by the parent of the other kid Brat nearly rode over.
Other Dad: You two would rather whine and moan about some poor person telling YOUR spoiled brat to follow the rules instead of being parents yourself. Your child nearly ran over my kid and some other kid. It's people like you who are making the children of this world stupid. Be a parent. Teach your kid right and wrong. Riding a bike in a busy store, wrong. Lying about what happened, wrong. You three are all a disgrace. *turns to Cleaner* I saw what happened. Here's my business card: If they try to get you in trouble or anything, I will gladly tell whomever the real truth.
Other Dad and his kid took off. Mom and Dad of Brat looked shocked and stunned that someone would speak to them like that. As I was walking past them, I told my son, "This is why I teach you manners and stuff. So you don't make us look like an idiot, like them."
I saw the family rush out of the store without buying anything as my son and I were making our way up to the register. Hopefully this was the kick in the ass they needed
