This has only happened to me a couple of times, so when it does I'm in such shock that I'm usually left hanging for an appropriately *****y response. Today I took my son over to the mall to get out of the house for a while. He's 10 years old, but developmentally disabled, and loves to walk around the mall to look at things and ride up and down the escalators. He's generally very well-behaved, and was being so today. We were at Nordstroms and I wanted to do one lap around the shoe department to see what was new. This woman was sitting in a chair trying on shoes, and had leaned her crutches against the chair so they were sticking out in the aisle. My son likes to show me things, and had picked up a shoe from the diplay on the other side of the aisle for me to see, and didn't see her crutches behind him and accidently kicked them. I was holding onto his hand all this time, and as quickly as I could took the shoe from him, put it back in the display and moved him away from where her crutches were still blocking half the aisle, while telling my son well within her earshot, "Honey, watch where you're stepping! Be careful please." So we get a few feet away, and stop to look at something at a display table (which is now in between her and us), and she turns around in her chair and says in one of those fake polite voices, "Will you PLEASE WATCH him!" and then because apparently she thinks I'm stupid, says again "Will you PLEASE WATCH him." I assume she's referring to my son, who I have by the hand (and had the entire time) and is standing there doing nothing. I just blinked a couple of times and said "we're leaving now." It's not like he was misbehaving. He just tripped over her freakin crutches. And I'd already moved him out of range several seconds before. Where do people like this get off???? I know some people do let their kids run amok in public, but that's not us. We always are consicous of his behavior and take pains to be sure he's not disturbing anyone, or we remove him. Gah.
