Helpers….should they be smaking children?!
So today while I was mid convenience shop…. what did I see, but a cheeky 4/5 year old (I can only guesstimate…) being cheeky and moving yogurt around as staff stacked the shelves in my local market in repulse Bay. What does his nanny/helper do? She slaps him (hard) on the head with a box of Cheerios. Then she caught me looking at her and walked away. At the tills while I’m paying, she turns around (in front of everyone) and hits him sooo hard on his arse for grabbing a box of g-d knows what that was on special, and she catches my eye again. This time, I had to say “I know your face and I NEVER forget a face”. Not one person, in four queues breathed …. I mean…. if his mother was there this shit would not be happening.
I’m not ashamed to say that I have cameras in my house. I check them every so often when I leave. I have small babies who can’t say “that fkin bitch slapped me” or” she gave me a pinch when no one was watching”. Not because Im in Hong Kong and I’m some privileged snob (the opposite…we are skint and this place is fkin expensive).
When we lived in the UK, we did the same. Why be stupid? These are our children! If I left a million pounds on my coffee table, I would guard that with my life. my kids have no money on their heads because they are invaluable. I wanted to hit this silly fkin bitch today. She’s hurting/being mean to that child and I can say that but how do you stop and scream in front of a whole supermarket at some dickhead who clearly does not give a shit who sees her? There were loads of people who witnessed it…and yet no one but me (with my stupid dumbarsed words) said something. Im really fkd off today. Again… I didn’t step up to the plate. if his Mum was there, she wouldn’t have done it. That’s bad enough for me. If that was my child, I would have killed her. Being mean and spiteful is very different to “losing it”. She saw my face, felt a tiny bit of shame for being caught, then did it again. He didnt even react which means (in my eyes) she does it often. Bitch.
