Idiot of the Day Award.

I took Munchkin in for her 2 year check up today. As we were heading to sit down in the "WELL" baby seating area, I caught the tail end of a conversation between two other Moms. One saying something about how she hates to sit on the "sick" baby side, even when her kids are sick. Now, I must agree that I cringe at the thought of sitting in that germ infested area with the Munchkin, on the rare occasion we have to make an unscheduled visit to the Doctor. I can't stop myself from thinking about all of the things she is picking up to bring home with us, in addition to her current ailments, but I do it!!!

This lady had no more finished that sentence when her oldest daughter projectile vomited all over the place. The Mom of course rushed her off to the bathroom and came back with some paper towels to clean up the mess. Another lady told me that she was there because they were throwing up, and she thought it was something they ate. Ahem, Bull shit! What the hell was she thinking? Not only did she possibly infect all of the kids in that seating area, she never told anyone what happened, and I had to stop another lady from sitting in the seat that she had only wiped with a paper towel, no disinfectant, nothing.

It's a good thing that our name was called and she didn't bring her kid back into that room, I would have hated to go all hormonal on her ass. Don't tempt me right now people, I've been sick for 8 weeks and looking for an excuse!

Back to the letter "P." PURELL is what I, again, lathered the Munchkin in, after we left... Wise up people, it's not rocket science.

I live for Purell. I wonder if you can bathe in it.

I hope you didn't get something that would lead to more puke...for your sake!

I firmly believe that it is not only acceptable but entirely appropriate to call her out right then and there. SELFISH. People are so selfish.

Unbelievable. Not only is the vomiting just disgusting in and of itself, but done in the Well Child Area. People are just stupid and selfish, like random_mommy said. For her sake, I'm glad you all got called next, too!

I would have complained to the nurse and asked them to say something. Nothing like being made to feel like an idiot at a place you HAVE to return to. Selfish a-hole.

I normally hate drama but when it comes to my 2 girls or someone else's outright stupidity and selfishness, yeah. I would have caused a scene. I would have jumped up and grabbed my kids and tattled to the nurse. Real Mature, huh??

Rachel said...

Oh hell no!! That's not the idiot of the day.. that's the "obnoxious menace to society award"
How rude.
Purell is wonderful!!!

How trifling! If I were her I wouldn't be sitting in the well area knowing that my child is sick or could be sick. And to top it off she didn't ask for a disinfectant or maintenance help to clean up the mess. What a moron. I hope you two didn't catch anything!
