Not to mention, there's no proof of line-jumping. Again, one side of the story.
Amazing, isn't it? We all hear only one version of what happened, and then everyone demands we pick a side.

And when we refuse, they get upset with us, claiming we're defending somebody. WTH!?

Honestly I think the idea that no one is allowed to touch or speak to someone's kids is over the top. All these 'momma bears' who want to go ballistic over people that have no ill intentions, they need to be declawed.
Yeah, where did that come from anyway? "Don't touch my kid ..." I mean; if your kid cut in line, get your kid out of the damn way.

I don't care if she is a mean old bag; she's the elder. My kids would be saying "Excuse me". "I'm sorry". Or they would be saying "Bye Bye ..." to that movie.

If I did that, I'd only go to Jane Austen movies.

Ah yes, good clarification. I was meaning "we" as in collective society.

I just read the article. Typical chica gangsta behavior. Its what they do to anyone who challenges what they see as their authority. I can almost see the gang marking tattoos. Pure trash. What's sad is that no one else in line tried to stop her ? Why didn't anyone tackle the beoootch to the ground ???

The mom seems to have over reacted and been in the wrong for cutting in...but when a stranger lays hands on someone's kids...it's going to bring out the mama bear.
You parents want to have your cake and eat it too. You want the Village(tm) for things like monetary support, because you consider it the obligation of everyone to subsidize your lifestyle choices, but you don't want the discipline which used to be one of the biggest tasks of the Village(tm). You can't have it both ways. Kids ALWAYS used to be disciplined and even spanked by the Villagers.

I can tell you that if I'd been in line with my elderly mother and that lady had made a grab for her like that, she'd have become the newest youtube "instant karma" video star lol.
Amen. I wouldn't have cared if my elderly mother had pushed her bratty uncivilized brats out with all of her force. People need to stop being intimidated by trash.
