A had a choice today which ultimately meant i no longer want to be friends with someone i know. I was in the bakers and then this women hit her kid and told him to shut up, then he went outside. Her im assuming friend well she said "hes off" eg running away, mothers reply "aye he knows better that to run away from me". Would YOU A stand up to these people and tell them its appalling they could hit a child, even those that believe that you must at some point hit you kid if they misbehave must realise to hit a child so lightly like its ordinary is appalling. Option B which my friend who i will not talk to any more took, its none of my business she can hit her kid if she likes because there is nothing i can do. Ive learned thats who i am to stick up for others, dont be afraid to tell the dick playing techno at the back of the bus put some headphones in. Dunno if anyone will care but i hope there are people out there who feel the same way, it meant a lot to me something that previously i wouldve overlooked, in my face slapping a small child and no one cared just made me angry that people can be that way :shadedshu.
