Dear Mother at Kwik Trip,
I was waiting to check out with a few items and noticed you and your daughter walk in. With excitement in her voice your daughter exclaimed:
MOM!! CAN I GET ANOTHER EGG ROLL!?
To which you replied:
Yeah, because that is JUST what you need, another egg roll. Why don’t you ask for a banana?
I was not the only person who was taken aback by this. I saw numerous people turn in your direction with disgust written all over their faces.
Obviously, your daughter’s choice of words like, another, would imply that you have bought her numerous egg rolls in the past, making her question completely relevant. Instead of saying, “How about you get a more healthy snack like a banana?” you made the decision to cut her down, and make her feel 2 inches tall in front of a store full of people.
Your daughter is overweight. That is your fault. Not every obese child’s parents are to blame – sometimes there are other reasons -. in this instance, however, I blame you. Not only does your daughter need to deal with the struggles of being overweight in everyday life, even her own mother says hurtful things to her.
You are supposed to lift your children up. Make them believe they can conquer anything standing in their way. You are supposed to make sure she lives a long healthy life. You are supposed to make sure she enjoys her childhood. Real question: what is wrong with you?
You’re a bully and you disgust me.
