Today I was at our local mall while babysitting my neighbors. We headed to the food court so the boys could go to the bathroom and Mordecai could be taken outside to do the same. As we walked a little girl barreled away from her mom and was on a collision course with us screaming for the doggy. I gave Mordecai's leash a little tug and we veared around her. I gave him a Come command in a pleasant voice as I did it. The mom yelled at me across the food court and told me I could have been a little nicer. I turned around and told her that she could have controlled her child(which she didn't). She told me to go to hell as I walked out the door. She was lucky I didn't body block her kid like I have done to others. She really upset me! I had to breathe deeply outside for a few minutes. I told myself that letting my anxiety go sky high because of idiots is not good. I've decided that when people are being rude because they can't control their kids, dogs or parents around my service dog; I'm not going to respond to their idiotic comments. I need to just let it go and tell myself that I am more mature than they are. I don't need their idiocy raising my anxiety, I have enough anxiety already! I'm just going to let their comments blow away and let everyone else hear them. And besides watching all those people be rude shows me all the things I will never do around my future children.
