To the rude mother at our recent adoptive families playgroup

Just for future reference, it's rude to make any kind of huffing/snorting sound when people are going around introducing themselves and their children.  Obviously, my son's name is new to you and perhaps it's not your favorite.  Hence, the "L_____ (repeating his name). Hmmph" response when I introduced him.  Your response should have been, ". . . . . . . . .".  Those dots symbolize silence. "Hi" would have been acceptable, too.  "Hmmph"---not acceptable.  

By the way, I held back my opinion in the interest of common courtesy, but your daughter's name, the name you changed her birthname name to, is a common stripper name.  Next time, you hmmph at my son's name, I'm going to share that info with you.

Oh my goodness! How rude! I hope that you don't get the opportunity to use your comeback as that would mean she didn't think what she said was rude. Although if you do, PLEASE tell us!
*HUGS*

If a rose by any other name would smell as sweet... would a child named after a stripper have her destiny set in the stars already?

lol No, but the poor sweet lil thing can change it when she's 18 when she escapes her controlling rude mother!

good for you...to be the bigger person (unless pushed to the limit of your toleration of someone's ignorance) makes you a higher caliber human being than that douche.

interaction with people is why i like to hide out in the country with the quiet.

also, my computer. i like my friends better in here.

congratulations, love, and kindness, to you:)
