A week ago I posted a blog called “What Should You Do?” that was about Baylor being accosted by a three-year old. It describe the little terror’s behavior and also how the parents of the little demon not only didn’t do anything to stop the child, they condoned her behavior. So I asked readers what someone in my position should have done. And as expected, there were some practical responses and a lot of really funny ones.
To start, the incredibly unhelpful response:
Kristin: “I actually can’t believe that you didn’t say anything. You’re getting soft in your old age.” – really, what are friends for if they can’t call you a b*tch on your blog??
Next, the somewhat practical comments:
Christiane: “You should have told them that Baylor has pink eye and they had better have their daughter checked out after breakfast!“. – I would totally use this one. I might switch out pink eye for stomach flu, but the main theme still holds.
Patrick: “For this situation I would recommend looking into two iPhone apps: “Kids Be Gone” and “Teen Torture (aka Teen Hearing Test).” Tell Baylor to plug her ears and let the little brat have it”. -Leave it to the guys to go high-tech. Note to self; teach Baylor “earmuffs”.
Lastly, the totally ridiculous and hilarious:
Kimberly: “You should start rummaging through the parents purses’ to see how they like it….”
Tori: “I’d perform a discrete, under-the-table shin kick to the little brat. That doesn’t sound quite motherly and nurturing does it? Whatever. Bratty times call for bratty measures.”
Charlene: “Hand them a pre-printed card with a fake “manners classes” address and say sweetly, “our daughter used to behave just like that before we took her here.” then smile and walk.”
In short, thank you all for nothing. This was incredibly unhelpful and yet terribly hilarious. I call it a win!

Haha. Glad I could be of help…for nothing. I never have been good at the practical responses to life’s harder moments 🙂
