Throat Punch Thursday

For today’s throat punch I need a second to ask the recipient to go and get a babysitter.

I can’t chop her gullet in front of her child.

OH wait, I AM the babysitter…. Right. That’s why she’s getting the slap to the larynx.

Because she’s a complete stranger, a woman I have never met in my entire life, and she left her baby with me.  With us.

Without asking.

No I’m not kidding.

I don’t kid on Throat Punch Thursdays.

Her daughter was adorable and my child loves babies, so we went over to say hi, to make baby friends, and then to leave.

But we couldn’t leave.

Her mother was no where to be found.

I looked around, searching high a low for her boney little body, which could be hiding anywhere; in the garbage can, the fake ferns, I even checked in my purse.

Brian spotted her.

At the cell phone kiosk.

Bitch please.

If I wanted a second baby badly enough right now your precious, chubby faced, beautiful little girl would have been mine!

She would have been safe with me and I would NEVER have left her with a stranger while I looked at cases for my iphone.


You are lucky that it was us who you left her with while your brain leapt from your head and you put shopping in front of your child’s safety.

Because I would never steal your baby.

This Throat Punch comes with a lesson in parenting you sad woman.

There are many people who would steal your baby, they are waiting for an opportunity just like this one and would have disappeared in an instant with your tiny girl.

Your child should be the most important person in your life, you never leave her with a stranger. If you need a break then call a friend, her grandparent, or a real babysitter you trust!

Your throat punch comes in the form of disappointment. From one mother to another.

That should sting more.

I am very disappointed.

    This has seriously happened to me before. I was sitting in the park when some guy, out of nowhere, asked me to watch his 3 kids while he ran to staples to get pencils.


    And before I could say, uh, I don’t know you from Adam… he was gone!

    Luckily, he came back! LOL

    First, LOVE the new look, it’s gorgeous!

    OMG some people just should not be allowed to have children! What was she thinking? Fortunately for the child, it was you, not some sicko who would take that baby in a heartbeat. A well deserved throat punch.

    Gah, that makes me so mad! I go to the park every morning with my tot, and am amazed at the lack of attention so many kids are getting from their parent. Too many on their phones or chatting with other moms, not even looking at their kids. I always feel like I need to try and keep an eye on them, but my boy comes first. That lady IS lucky she left her daughter with you … unfortunately there are so many bad people out there 🙁

      Many parents don’t interact with their children. I can understand multitasking but there comes a time when your child needs undivided attention.

    Oh.My.God. WTF?! Did you say anything to her? Did she even notice when she came back that strangers were with her child? Oy vey.

    WTF was this lady thinking leaving her kid alone? Throat punch is definitely deserved.

      she sure does!!
      I don’t think she had a brain in her head.

    I can’t believe any phone call was important enough to leave your child and take it.

    The depths of peoples idiocy never ceases to amaze me.

    This is my favorite line:

    “Bitch please.”

    Wow! She is a complete idiot.

  15. Ugh. That’s happened to us before. Flipping weirdo parents.

    She left her child with a complete stranger. OMG. A throat punch is being NICE!

    I do encourage Klaw to play without me at playgrounds (I kinda wanna throat punch helicopter parents) & other areas but I don’t hand him off to other people and go shopping.

    That woman is a moron… and definitely deserves a throat punch.
    I’ve had it happen to me before… and I’m always gobsmacked. How the hell can parents act like that? I AM nice… but what if I wasn’t? They’d never know in the first 30 seconds that they meet me.

    Is that woman living on another planet? She definitely deserves a Throat Punch so maybe next time she thinks about her girl first.

    I agree with Dana that the throat punch was being nice..what was the scene when she finally showed back up? I’ve had family do that to me and while still annoying, not as stupid

      we gave her major snake eyes!
      And a flash of the hairy eye ball but no harsh words, her daughter and mine were present.
      I should have gave her a stern talking to and a spankin’

    Slap you in the larynx???
    I die.
    We’ve never hired a babysitter. We have Nana and Papa.
    And the occasional aunt and uncle.
    It’s cheaper that way.

      Glad it did though.
      Strangers are weird.
