Listen to my mom!!!

I just wanted to share my mom's wisdom. I keep reading about more and more people amazed and frustrated with others behavior while at the parks. I really believe that with summer, comes heat and crowds and then more rude behaviors.

With that said, my mom told me once (as I could not believe how someone was acting) that she truely felt sorry for these people. "Mom, are you kiding me? How can you feel sorry for such jerks?" and she said, "We only ran into them for a brief moment. Can you imagine actually how it is to be them? Bitter and mad all the time? And their kids, they don't have a chance."

So now when I run into this insanity, I smile at the kids and thank God that I really am not that sad......... and then my anger does not come out. So who is with me?? Lets just smile at all the rude people until they are too uncomforable to come back.

Interesting. When I would call someone like that jerks, MY mom would say, "You've seen them for one moment in time and have no idea how they behave the rest of the time. Unless you want to follow them around all day and keep track, it's not fair to assume that the way you see them right now is the way they are the rest of the time. How would you like it if someone saw you when you were having a bad day and then assumed you were like that all the time?"

Both are good advice, but they approach the rude family from totally different directions!

My mom would have told me to shut my mouth and mind my business.

That's a good approach! I'll keep that in mind in June!

LMAO of it's their "Madulla oblongatas"!

I would tell my kids to mind their own beeswax too. I don't think its fair to judge someone like that on a one time basis.

It's a '70s QUEEN song from the Chartreuse Album.

Completely different thing.
