I'm That Kind Of Mom

Val was somewhat fussy this morning and early afternoon. She wasn't feeling being in the carseat while I had lunch with Bubbles, which made it the kind of lunch where you say something, pay attention to the baby, ignore your friend, then hear your friend for a second, fuss over the baby, repeat.

So by the time we got to Sports Basement, I was stoked as hell when she started to zonk out. I loaded up the stroller and prepared to browse until she really went to sleep.

Fine, great, until I'm ALL BY MYSELF in the shoe department and this chippie comes by, then speaks oh so loudly to me, asking if I'm finding everything ok. It startles Val so I say 'shh, I'm trying to keep her asleep.' I would have followed with 'but I'm fine, thanks' had she not said 'well you know you're in a STORE.'

That cheesed me. The place was empty for fucks sake and given that would it kill you to whisper? Would it?

Were the place busy i wouldn't dream of asking that. But I was literally one of 2 customers.

I glared at the girl, then as I was leaving told the manager. He was super nice about it, as was the other clerk I'd shusshed earlier. I ended up getting 15% off my stuff, which wasn't what I was looking for. I just wanted someone to tell the chippie to lose the attitude.

Yep, I'm that kind of mom. The one who will do whatever it takes to keep her kid happy.
