Dear Old Lady in the car behind me at Starbucks,

I am sorry I said what I said to you. I forgot my window was still down and didn't realize yours was down as well.

BUT you really don't have to have that kind of attitude. Simply because I held you up from getting your coffee at the window, and trust me I understand the importance of the caffeine.

I was just trying to situate my one year old and even did a little "Oh! I'm sorry!" wave, that you DID see. Still you said something to the barista, rolled your eyes and threw your wrinkled, liver spotted hands in the air in disgust and irritation. (that last comment wasn't respectful either and I should not of said it. Sorry again for that.)

You are not nice. Not nice at all. Yet, saying what I said was very disrespectful and my daughter was in the car and heard me. I need to teach her to be respectful of her elders. Even if they are old bitches.

I apologize and hope to the sweet baby Jesus that you aren't one of Hubby's clients. And that he (the baby Jesus, not Hubby) forgives me for being ugly to you.

Some need to slow down and just breathe. Not nice at all. Hopefully she isn't someone's grandma.
Your story cracked me up.

My favorite part was the liver spotted part. At least it wasn't an old lady giving a liver spotted finger. That would be wierd but funny :)

I was behind an AWFUL woman in Target today...she looked hopped up on meth or something and threatened to "dump this **** out of the buggy and walk out" because she was having to wait. REAL classy...especially with her daughter with her who looked to be about five.

Sounds like she deserved it. I'll bet she forgets what it's like to have children that need to be situated.

And please share! What did you say?

I think you do hit an age when you forget what it was really like to have kids. Crap it is not easy. So that lady has either forgotten or she never had kids.

The amount of guilt you seem to be experiencing over your choice of words is just too intriguing.

Personally, when people make rude comments and/or gestures, I just really want to follow them wherever they are going and ask them where they find the courage to do that to a complete stranger without knowing what kind of deranged psycho they might be doing it to.

I just want to make someone pee on themselves one of these days. I don't think that's asking for too much.
