So I'm standing there trying to pretend I'm fine. I go back to playing with Justin when another woman comes up to me and starts cussing me up and down about the same two children. I tell her the same thing, "I've never touched your child." At this point several children go up to her and tell her that the boy is lying, that I've never laid a hand on either of her children. The second woman was way taller than me...bout Heather's height but waaaaaaaay bigger in girth. She finally walks away still cussing. One of the other parents came up to me afterwards and said, "I'm up here every morning just like you and I've never seen you touch any child other than your own." I'm one of 4 parents that go to the bus stop. So the bus comes, the kids load up and I'm standing there waving to Justin, like I do every morning. When I turn around to leave, I see out of the corner of my eye the two women standing on their balcony. So i noted the apartment number and went home.
By the time I got home, I was shaking so bad I almost started crying. I walk in and tell Jimmy, "I'm taking the boys to school in the mornings from now on." Then I told him what happened. He grabbed his cell phone and called his boss to say he'd be late. I called the police to file a report.
An officer shows up and I tell him what happened. I said, "I'm 31 years old. I thought this stuff ended in high school." The officer said he would go talk to the other women, if they were home. In the morning he said either he or another officer would be at the bus stop to show other parents that this type of behaviour is serious and unacceptable.
It was nice that several of the children stood up for me. I just don't know what's wrong with people. I see those two children outside all the time getting in to trouble. And I hate to say this, but I bet they end up in juvie before too long. I must be naive or something, but I've always thought it was better to have a civil conversatin with a parent if there's a problem.
I sure hope my day gets better. LOL
