OH NO, HE DIDN'T!!!

So yesterday I was standing in line at the bank waiting to go up to the teller when I saw this little girl who had to be all of maybe 3 or 4. She was standing near the display board that they have in banks that tell you the day's current home mortgage loan rate.

She was just being a typical kid, kinda running around. Her mother was already up at the teller's window being served so she didn't really see what was going on. At some point, the little girl decided to erase some of the writing on the board with the sleeve or her blouse. One of the ladies that worked in the bank saw her but didn't really make a big fuss because I guess it's not that hard to just fill it back in.

That's when I saw, this old white guy, maybe around 75/80, get up from the area where you sit to wait to open up new accounts and he headed straight towards the little girl. He started talking really loud saying "this is not a playground" and "you need to get from around this area" and "where's your parents? Parents need to watch their kids" "what kind of place do you think this is?"

So just when I thought he was done with his tirade, he then took the paper folder he had his hand and raised both arms at least head high and swatted the girl over the top of her head, with a fair amount of force and then ended by saying "get from around here". Finished with his outburst, he strolled back over to the seating area, sat down and crossed his legs like nothing had happened and the little girl ran to her mother's side.

Somehow, her mother didn't see any of this because she was busy talking to the teller but the rest of us standing in line just stood there looking at each other looking dumbfounded! I'm sure we were all thinking the same thing - oh no, he didn't!! You just don't go around touching other people's kids, much less hitting them! I wonder what her mother would've done had she seen what had occurred??? I called my mother to tell her and we both still have no idea what we would've done either...maybe old people can just get away with more...

Don't let old people get away with crap. I saw some old guy throw a cigarette wrapper on the ground 15 feet away from a trash can. He lit his cigarette, and walked over to his car in the parking lot as if to wait for his wife. I was so pissed off about a Best Buy customer non-service issue that I snatched that wrapper up off the ground, marched it to his car, told him he had dropped something, stuff it in the cowl of his car, and walked back to the store front. I felt much better as I mumbled about litter and trash cans.

Just because they are short, tall, black, white, old, or young, speak up.... unless of course it looks like they might be able to kick your ass.... :-)

I would have GONE OFF. That is bringing out the Mama Bear in me right now and I didn't even witness it!! And how did the mom not NOTICE? So many things WRONG with this story!! I have to stop typing because my blood pressure is rising. I could NOT have kept my mouth shut. I would have marched over to the old f*cker, grabbed his papers, and popped him on the back of the head. Jackass. Then I would have stolen his dentures and cane and stashed them in the toilet. Then I would have kicked him in the shin, had Garret kneel down behind him, and I would have pushed him over. Yeah!

I guess you all were so shocked that you didn't think to put him in his place! I can't say I would've done anything either, however, the little girl needed defending. If I had a little girl, I wouldn't want her to be disrespected in such a way, especially by a complete stranger. So yeah, I would've had some words for Pops had I seen that.

I would've went postal and told him thanks but you didn't have to hit my child. He should've told her to stop in a nice way and come to me. Don't even try to talk down to my child. I don't care what race she is.

Jackie,

Wow. I think I would have been in shock too. I don't think that the old man did that because he was an old man I think some people feel entitled to exert their views on others.

That poor little girl.

Gurl, i think i would smacked him. He deserved it, i mean who would blame me, or would they arrest me for hitting a senior citizen. This is just crazy!
