Yesterday, Mommy was walking out of a Target store. When she entered the crosswalk, she casually observed a car at the nearby stop sign. There was some pretty loud music coming from the car, but Mommy didn't give it a second thought until she the driver of the car yell, "That's right B****, you heard the music!" in her direction.
Mommy ignored the comment and kept walking...but as soon as she got into her car she wished she had said something to the un-gentleman driver. Thankfully, I wasn't around to hear such rudeness. Mommy knows that won't always be the case, though.
Mommy is wondering how she could have responded that would have:
A. Let the driver know she was offended.
B. Shown me that women shouldn't be talked to that way.
C. Not further exacerbated the situation.
