I got my kids out of the car at the parking of Kroger ,at Buffalo speedway and Westpark Drive, held hands with both of them , and suddenly my 8 year old became scared when a lady in a jeep came close to my daughter , instead of feeling sorry , I was shocked when she yelled " get your F****ing kids out of here" . I never knew there has a way in which the kids can magically get of the car and get transported into the kroger without having to walk.
We moved to Houston about 5 months ago and this is the first time such a thing happened .
I have always believed in the good of people and have even worked in the worst neighbourhoods in Brooklyn , but never encountered such a thing directed against the kids.
It pains me to say that these are the same people who always complain and feel hurt that , people don't give them respect.

If you were holding their hands & didn't have them in the way of cars, you did the right thing & the Jeep lady was loco.

Loco isn't the adjective I would use, can't say but I can give you a first letter, not B, but very close in the alphabetic line up.

Yes, these things happen here as often as other cities - I guess it's just a sense of entitlement that so many people seem to carry with them now. When it's directed toward children it's pretty inexcusable. Maybe this is just another aspect of the dumbing of America...Very Ugly.

I was at the HEB at the corner of Rayford/Sawdust 2 weeks ago. As I was v-e-r-y carefully turning in to a parking space, a woman in a car with dark tinted windows next to where I was pulling in opened her door to get out so I immediately stopped, smiled politely and waved at her to continue. She gave me big time stink eye. I got out of my car and told her I was just being courteous and no need to be rude. She just sneered and walked on - I figured she was used to acting that way. When I returned to my car, the passenger side door had been keyed...just another degenerate person swimming at the bottom of the gene pool.

By the same token, several times recently and especially when I'm with my mom, young kids hold the door open. I always make a point to let them know it's appreciated and usually say, "Someone is doing a great job teaching their kids" and they usually give me a big smile...maybe those few can start a trend...there is always hope!

LOL - you are right. The good news is that karma will be the B word to those people.

I understand that you are upset, but rude people are everywhere. We cannot change the behavior of people who are rude or intolerant of others.

wow!!

and i'll do the same thing .... make some remark about WHAT a little gentleman or lady the child is..... when they have earned it.....

as the poster above said, rude and ignorant people abound in this world.... such a shame..... imo, it is much more taxing to be ugly and hateful and angry than it is just roll with things as they happen.....

If it were I, I'm afraid the woman (not even appropriate to call her a lady) would have an imprint of a size 9 1/2 foot on her door due to a momentary lapse of rage on my part, and I would later feel bad.

So a fluke incident happened. Not a pattern. Some *sshole just spouts off.

Why post it? Does everyone need to know about it? What can we do, other than sympathize? And why am I wasting my time replying?

I'm trying not to sound rude or come off as an a-wipe myself, but really, is there a need to post every time sh*t happens? Do you know how many times someone runs a light, or cuts me off? Do I post each time?

When patterns develop, or there is a trend, or one has ideas about culture and where we're heading... ok, post it. But just to say someone was rude to you, I don't get it.
