Standing in a grocery store line:
To set the scene:
We have all been waiting at least fifteen minutes in line, because the place is packed, and the person checking out at this point is argueing about coupons with the cashier.
A young mother has an infant and a maybe nine or ten year old who is standing beside her looking kinda awkward and occasionally pulling on his mother, at which point she tells him the exact same thing "We're almost done, we just have to pay for the food." he looks tired and about ready to get frustrated, but is otherwise pretty normal seeming. (As in, not yelling, not vocally fussing, and more or less a well behaved kiddo.
This is done quietly and inconspicuously, and I probably wouldn't have noticed, except that I am a people watcher and her baby was REALLY cute. I'll call this woman LadyOne. And her son Boy.
Right behind her is an older lady with no kids in tow who is apparently also admiring the baby. She decides to comment to the young mother. I'll call her LadyTwo.
Now for the funny part.
LadyTwo: Oh, isn't she (baby) cute!
LadyOne: (Cheerfully) Thank You! She's just learning to sit up on her own. Boy has been dressing her... (i guess to explain why the baby was wearing a hockey jersy styled onsie. lol)
(boy at this point waves a bit then goes back to glomming onto his mother, who pats his head)
LadyTwo: Oh, isn't he sweet. He must be a mama's boy? they look like a handful.
LadyOne: Yep. Especially since he's asbergers.
LadyTwo: Oh now honey, I know you're having some trouble wrangling them, buit there's no need to call the child a nasty name!
I nearly lost it. LadyOne burst out laughing and explained that it was a disorder. ladyTwo appologized, but remarked before LadyOne left "Well... It does sound a bit mean as a name..."
And now i feel bad for still laughing at this two days later. Please, could someone else make me feel better and tell me this really was kinda funny?
