Moronic Jackass.

That was the best I could come up with today when this shithead (now I can think of something) tried to run us over in the Target parking lot. I would like to say it's because I have been diligent at controlling my language in front of the Munchkin, but in reality I was completely shocked that this man never saw us.

Munchkin and I were leaving the store and had stopped outside to have a conversation about why we have to be careful in parking lots, and that if she wasn't going to ride in the buggy, she had to hold my hand or the side of the cart. Do you see the object lesson forming here? Not one minute after I finished my lecture, this man in a pick up truck backed out of his spot right into the cart, I grabbed the Munchkin up, pulled the cart back and rammed the side of his truck. Then he noticed us. He rolled down his window and began apologizing, saying that he was so afraid he was going to hit the man with kids, parked on the other side, that he didn't even see us.... Really? No shit! I proceeded to tell him that he was a Moronic Jackass that needs to be more careful, and pay more attention to his surroundings. I rambled off a few other things that ended with how he could have killed my kid. It was all I could do not to punch him in the nose. He may have sensed this, as it was about the same time he rolled up his window and drove away.

I'm sure I was a sight to see, big ass belly, Munchkin, haphazardly slung on my left hip, buggy full, yelling at a man in a truck.

I'm not sure how long it will stick, but now the Munchkin knows what happens when cars don't pay attention in the parking lot. She talked about the man that hit our buggy all the way home. We should really be talking about how "Hormonal Mommy" didn't drop the "F" bomb on the man in the parking lot.... I think there may be a lesson to learn there too.

Hopefully the lesson will last. I know when my son, now 3 1/2, but was then 20 months old didn't properly get strapped into his car seat, he learned a valuable lesson.

OK, actually I was so distracted by his newborn sister, that I forgot to strap him in.

Anyhoo, the point is that I drove down the street with BC sitting, unstrapped, in his chair. And when I slammed on the breaks to avoid a car, BC flew out of his seat and hit the back of my seat.

Ya. He was fine.

Let's not even talk about how awful I felt, but let's talk about the moral of the story.

BC ALWAYS straps himself in now. He's panicked if I begin to reverse without his strap on.

So, I think that your daughter will be holding your hand for a while!

:-) Too much information?? Sorry!

I had the exact same thing happen to me with my little one, Target parking lot and all. The woman just looked and me, shrugged her shoulders and mouthed, "Oops! My bad."

I was livid...I mean, it's only my child you almost killed, you freak!

I bet he will ALWAYS look both ways now. Little did he know he almost hit 4 people!

Oh my! I hope both Munchkin and the man learned a lesson! Im glad you are all ok.

same thing happened to me but I didn't have a kid with me. Car ran right into my buggy and actually cut my hand when it went careening off into the parking lot. All I could think of was 'what if my kid would've been in there?'. I called husband during a conference and told him I'd just been hit by a car. Took him a while to figure out it was physically me getting hit then he was frantic.

How terrifying!!!! I totally would have gone bonkers on him as well.

How you kept your language clean shows tremendous control!

OMG! Glad you are both unscathed! That is just awful! I always turn around and look at all areas before I back, too many others just don't pay attention.
