Woman Does School Run, Ends up in Heated Argument With New Mom Who Mistakes Business for Benefits. Was Her Fiesty Response Justified?

Written By Wise Healthy n Wealthy

While picking her kids up from school, a Reddit user was shamed by a fellow mom who disapproved of her career choice. She told the parent off immediately, but was her response too harsh? Here’s the full scoop:

She Was Doing the School Run

The Original Poster (OP) explains that her husband usually does the school run. However, he was sick on the day of the incident, which is why she was there instead.

OP was there to collect her seven-year-old daughter, who she knew had a new classmate. OP hadn’t met the parents yet…until then.

She Went Over to the Other Moms

Everything was fine, to begin with. OP saw a bunch of other moms she knew who were waiting for their children, so she went over to chat with them. The new kid’s mom was there, too, and they began to get acquainted…

OP and the new mom got talking. She asked what OP did for work, so she told her the truth – that she runs a small business from home, making jewelry that she sells on various online platforms. OP didn’t get the response she was expecting…

She Was Rude and Insulting

After hearing what she did for a living, this new mom responded, “So you’re on benefits then.” OP couldn’t believe it. She was in shock. But the woman wasn’t finished. She then told OP that “she knows [her] type and [she’s] just lying to not look bad.” OP’s shock turned to anger…

An Argument Ensued

OP was livid, telling the woman to “mind her own ******* business.” The mom then fired back, calling OP a scrounger and an “******* without manners.” That was the final straw for OP. She’d had enough and walked away before it escalated further.

OP’s daughter eventually appeared. As they were leaving, she overheard one of the other moms telling the woman how successful OP is. OP wished she could have seen the lady’s face but decided not to turn around.

Should OP Feel Bad?

OP put the story on Reddit to get a second opinion. She’d been thinking about what happened and felt like it wasn’t her proudest moment. Now she’s worried it’ll make future school runs awkward for her partner. She finished with a question: was she in the wrong? If so, she feels like she’ll have to apologize to the other mom…

Reddit Was On Her Side

People on Reddit thought the only person who’d done something wrong was that other mom in the schoolyard. The most upvoted comment read, “She was unnecessarily rude to you for no reason, you had every right to say what you said.”

Another chimed in, adding this: “And swearing amongst a group of parents isn’t incredibly scandalous or anything…they’re familiar with the word “f******.” The other woman was rude as hell and OP’s response was appropriate imo.”

She Disrespected Her

Many of the comments hone in on the disrespect the woman had shown OP. One person wrote, “She disrespected you first, all you did was stand up for yourself. Good for you, she was super out of line.” Then someone else piggybacked off that to say, “I’m not a fan of needlessly cussing someone out. But this wasn’t needless. New mum stuck her nose in someone else’s business and made a (very rude!) assumption. She got what was coming to her.”

What Do You Think?

So whose side are you on? Do you think OP should have managed her temper better and held her tongue? Or was she within her rights to snap back at the woman who’d been so rude to her? What would you have done in that situation? Drop a comment to let us know.
