Quotation of the Day

Open letter to obnoxious soccer mom....

Dear OSM,

The game between our daughters' teams was a great one. One of the best Ive seen all season. Both teams were undefeated, so it was a great match. BOTH teams played hard, and from what I could tell, played fair. That being said it was not at all necessary for you to make a comment like "well...if that's the way they have to win" as our team was two points ahead.

You have no idea the restraint it took to stop myself from walking over to your chair and dumping you on the grass on your butt. No idea. I didn't though, I ignored you, which probably bothered you more. Your nastiness is not becoming of you and I just had to laugh when your team won by one point and you looked over at us and put your arms in the air and said, "we won" like a snotty six year old. My own six year old was a bit put off by this as well as he asked me why you were mad.

So, why are you mad? Did you have a bad day? Did someone hurt your feelings and now you are retaliating by being nasty to complete strangers? Did it make you feel better, because if it did, I'm glad. Unfortunately you should know that you just made a big arse out of yourself. Next time you have a bad day and have to go to your kid's soccer game, ask the team mom to take her so you don't embarrass yourself.

Just trying to help.

You know it's bad when a kid notices their bad behavior! What a shame.

oh that stinks. And I was a little scared for a second. We had an intense soccer game this past weekend & I kept cheering but then felt bad for cheering thinking other parents for the other team would really want me to shut up, so I started cheering for both teams and clapping when the other team made a goal. Ugg. Maybe I should just sit in the car and watch.
