I debated on posting this or not....but I am sure it is something many of us have to deal with or will have to deal with...
I was at the local outlet mall with the two Little's. We were in Gy*boree. (they were having a $4.99 sale y'all!!)
Anyway, I was looking at the clothing, the girls were with me when they asked if they could sit in the two remaining chairs and watch the tv. I looked, saw two other girls about the same age with their moms talking and said sure. I could still see them and was literally two steps away. SO, I am looking through the clothing and over hear the one lady say " We have lived all over but now have to go to japan with all those Asians"
ooook, I pause and look over and see Hope asking one of their little girls to please move so she can see. (she even said please which isn't common for her)
The little girl doesn't move and proceeds to poke Hope in the eye with glasses and pull her hair. I wanted to say something to the mom, but didn't. I asked Hope if she was OK and she said yes. So I let her handle it......again the little girl pulls her hair. Hope then says to the mom, "excuse me, please tell her to stop"
The lady ignores her and does nothing. She continues to talk about "Dumb Asians" and how everything in Japan is going to be weird and different and ignores the whole thing.
So I go over and say, please stop. Nothing happens. Finally I look at the lady and say "excuse me" She ignores me and continues talking. Hope by now is in tears and I can't get the lady's attention. So I pick up Hope to comfort her and grab Grace and say out loud, Honey, some people are just plain rude and not very nice and we walk away.
Now, what I would liked to have done is something entirely different but I took the high road and left.
My question is what would you have done??
