The Day The Ladypop Went Troppo

Well, the day has finally arrived. I completely lost my marbles on the crossing. BIG TIME. I'm so angry with myself. I thought I had it all under control.
Apparantly not....just ask any of the fifty assorted kids and parents who watched me have a screaming match in the middle of the street with a guy who decided that me asking him to move his car was racially motivated. Like I care what nationality his car is. I know, not very funny. I'm trying really hard to see the lighter side of this, and so far, not happening. I love my job. I've known some of these kids since they were in nappies, and I love hearing about their teachers and their lunchboxes and all their other stuff. And this afternoon I set the worst possible example for them. I lost it. OK, the guy in question wasn't exactly reasonable, but that is no excuse. How can I expect any one, my son included, to use their minds to solve their problems, when I came within seconds of braining a man with a stop sign?? All I can do is apologise to everyone who witnessed it, and do some long, hard thinking about the future.

You are probably being harder on yourself than anyone else would...besides do you8 really want everyone to think you are super perfect?! I showed Mr. Plantfreak your comment and he got a good chuckle out of it.

Oh no Kjirsten, don't you dare. I was right there and he was WAY out of line and extremely intimidating :( I didn't feel to even leave until he was well gone!
You had every right to be angry and all the kids left with was a lesson in how not to did fine.
I'd be sharpening my pole to a point.....;)
