Please answer the question so she can shut her mouth!
If you read my post yesterday, If Monday was a person then you know I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, and Monday was whooping my butt. I called her (Monday) a bully because she relentlessly made my day unbearable.
Right when the day was approaching the light, I had to take my daughter to the orthodontist. Yes, I know there will be other kids there for the orthodontist to look at their braces, but I was not ready for the most annoying little voice I have ever encountered.
I was still in a mood, and on days like this, I stay home, but when you have kids to care for, ya gotta when you gotta go.
So here I go walking into the sitting area with my book in hand and glasses in the other hand. All I want to do now is get as comfortable as possible so I can read my book.
But obviously, that was too much for me to want!
There she was, a little girl that looked about 9 or 10 years old. She was doing spin after spin in this tight sitting area. She stepped on other parents’ toes as she clumsily spun in circles. Myself and other victims, okay, not victims but very much ANNOYED parents, shared eye rolls and heavy sighs.
Finally, she decided to sit her spinning self down and kept yelling out:
CAN I, CAN I, CAN I, Mom, you promised I could when we get home. So CAN I, CAN I, CAN I, CAN I.
MOM: I’ll think about it
DAUGHTER: Mom, you really shouldn’t lie and say one thing and then say something else. SO CAN I, CAN I, CAN I.
MOM: We’ll see sweetie
Daughter: All of my friends are going to be there, SO CAN I, CAN I, CAN I, CAN I, CAN I, CAN I
ANNOYED MALE VICTIM: For the love of God, can she?
Y’all, I don’t think I have ever laughed that hard in my life. It is an understatement to say that everyone in the waiting area was relieved to have this child shut it up.
So thank you, my fellow annoyed victim, you turned my frown upside down!
You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

kids be crazy
They really are 😂
Oh no, not the spinning top kid gone wild! I love that annoyed victims response…priceless! 😂😜🤣
He put me in the best mood!!! 🤣🤣
I love it! He even put me in the best mood and I wasn’t even there! 🤣😜😂 He said what you wanted to say, just a little nicer! 😝
I think I would have stood up and applauded. Ha, ha, another reason why I love kids, hate parents. Ha, ha. I don’t really mean that, but you get the idea.
I’m with you!!!! I felt like giving high fives all around the room. I swear most kids have more sense then their parents. This is why I give teachers gifts throughout the year. They have to deal with spoiled kids and spoiled/ cray parents 🤦🏽♀️
Exactly. Everyone has had a cranky kid at one time or another. There’s no way around that. As a parent, though, I always thought it was my job to make sure we didn’t disturb others and if we were, then at least apologize!
Yes Bryan!!!! I agree completely, a simple sorry goes a long way.
I feel your pain. I am so glad I’m at an age where I can avoid places like pediatricians and orthodontists.
Yes be very happy!!! People allow their kids to act any old way in public
Thanks for sharing this idea..this kid is spinning. 😃 Anita
Haha LOL Belladonna you keep cracking me up in laughter!! Monday and the Mood – and the true hilariousness of every ‘victim’ there was Feeling it!!
🤣🤣🤣Monday was quite the day!
🤣oh man, bella can I illustrate this ?
I’m feeling for the mom…maybe, but yeah…I worked retail, some kids are angels, some, their parents needed training…..and as for Monday, mine ended watching the devil wears prada twice…I need a trip to NYC soon….
Kids, parents and retail is a horrible mix! They are both the worse in a small public place. Love the devil wears Prada!
I just can’t deal with situations like that anymore. I’m getting old!
🤣🤣🤣 I’m so over it!!!
Thank the gods for that annoyed male victim! I couldn’t control my laughter 😀 😀 😀
🤣🤣 He was our hero! So glad it made you laugh too.
Yeah, I would’ve said something, too. Lol. I understand buddy’s pain, he couldn’t hold it in. And that young one’s mom knew she was being annoying. I’m sure she didn’t care.
I was hoping the mom would say something but she sat there looking at her phone.
Mhmm. Lol! 🤣😂😆
Lol not going to lie, some kids are super annoying sometimes 😂
🤣🤣 They really are!!!!!! So annoying.
I love it!
Thank you 😊
Kids are always so honest. Elementary teachers need lots of patience or they end up becoming patients. “Can I do this?” “No, no, no…..”
I could never be a teacher and I think they deserve so much praise and more money!!!!
They need more power in the classroom, so if they need to go to the Administrator they will support their decisions.
I totally agree!!!!
I mean with helping with discipline matters.
Too funny. Glad he spoke up. 💕🤣🤣🤣💕
🤣🤣🤣 Girl me too!
Aww! I think your girl is so adorable, only you can…
Funny and cute, love it. Thank’s for share dear Belladonna.
Have a lovely evening!
Thank you for reading! 😊
You are welcome dear.🙏😊
LMAO! I totally would have laughed, too! This is great! Hope your day got better. <3
😂😂 Thank you!!! It was the funniest moment.
Haha! This was good.
😂😂😂 Thank you!
I laughed so hard reading this, so I can imagine how it went down in real time. I just don’t get what took him so long to say some.
Me either!!! I wish had spoken up sooner but I’m so glad he did. 🤣🤣
I wanted to knock her and the momma out.
That was a fun story to have experienced 🙌😂 I love the little things like this that make our days so much more happy!
🤣🤣🤣 me too! So glad you liked the story.
Hahaha, a lovely post!
😁Thank you KK
We’ve all had days like these, Bella, but in the end you approached it (seemingly) with humor. You truly are a better soul than I. Thanks for sharing!
I have to admit I thought about sticking my foot and tripping her!
The story sound funny
Thank you 😊
Other people’s kids. 😔🤦🏽♂️ Definitely, I’m that guy!!
🤣🤣🤣 that’s awesome Warren!
Just last night, the granddaughters were over, with two of my daughters, and my husband. We were enjoying a glass of wine and the girls were dancing around us, stepping on toes, narrowly missing wine glasses. I find their energy to be nonstop and unending. I marvel at how they seem to be in motion at all times. It reminds me to be grateful that I had my kids in my twenties, when I had the stamina and patience to survive. Great post, love the stranger to spoke everyone’s mind. Hugs, C
Awwww that is do sweet and moments that they will remember forever!!!
The girl at the orthodontist was a pain in everyone’s ass. 🤣🤣
😁 Loving how the narrative of this piece turns my frown upside-down too. I couldn’t help but laugh at the turn the ending of this took!
🤣🤣🤣🤣 Thank you Layla! It was a funny moment and I had to share.
That is down right annoying but very funny ending. Glad that worked for you. Big hugs, Joni
OMG Joni it was so annoying!!!!!
Thanks for reading
It was a mess 🤣🤣🤣🤣
I bet it was! So annoying that man had to nip it in the bud! People are funny sometimes.😁
It was thee funniest moment. Shocked the mess out of the girl and her mom.
The mom and the girl were silly. Neither one of them knew how to act or conduct themselves!🌼
That’s it right there!
Just a lot of energy😂
