So I just have to share...

I did a little Bastille Day celebration festival today. It was too fun, I made a whole bunch of fun items including blue, white & red cupcakes. The day was going great; I was selling tons of stuff, people loved it, etc. Until someone's darling little boy comes up to my tent and screams "YOUR CUPCAKE GAVE ME FOOD POISONING AND I PUKED". He then proceeded to tell everyone that walked by that my cupcake "made him puke". (no one really listened to him, but I wanted to die 6 times). It took all I had not to grab his little arm and swing him to China, but instead I calmly questioned him...

When I asked him to tell me why he thinks the cupcake made him puke he said:

"The last thing I ate was your poisoned cupcake, it made me puke, what are you gonna do about it???" Seriously kid? Then I asked him what he had eaten today. His response: "2 hotdogs, pizza, Mt. Dew, nachos, ice cream sundae and a cupcake--for dinner". I told him to scram, he stuck his tongue out at me and ran away laughing. OOOOOHHHH!!! Had to share icon_evil.gif

what about 'yep, that's right folks, my cupcakes are so good that you will want to keep eating them until you puke too'.

Little brat .... what are you going to do about it ... how about give your parents a lesson on child nutrition and obesity statistics.

There's one of the reasons I stopped teaching. I really dislike bratty kids and no longer have the patience I once had. Not to mention, I equally dislike the bratty parents.

I work better with an oven. icon_smile.gif

This is why my mom stopped teaching, too. The kids just had no respect any more.

I agree! I work hard to make sure my son has manners. Even do that little threat before bday parties "I dont care what your gift is that you unwrap, you smile and acted like it was the best bday present you could have ever received". Drives me crazy when kids open bday presents and make a face or comment cause it wasnt exactly what they wanted.
Personally if i had seen/heard my son say that i would have smacked him to next week.

Oh I hate that. Ha, I know a woman who won't put presents out because her son will just open them at will!! She was like. "How do you keep them from opening their presents before Xmas?" Seriously? Uhhh, the same way I keep them from climbing all over someone else furniture....it's called discipline. You may want to try it sometime.

I see this ALL the time at the market.

I had a family of 7 eat all my samples, no thanks you no nothing.

I then put them on a cake pedistal with a lid so i could close it when i think ou have had enough, and I let a byo have one. I closed it, and he TRYED TO TAKE THE LID OFF (its a $200 cake pedesel) And says "I think I will ahve another one!".

I firmly pushed the lid back down, and say with a big smile "I think not!"


He nervously laughed and ran away..... Im pretty scary for a 5 foot nothing girl!

It gets a little worse every year it seems. But then there's that one special kid (out of 22) that makes it all worth while!

Me too! Having had a kid tell me that he didn't need to respect me but I MUST respect him and having the mother confirm that yes, that was the case made me feel that I just couldn't do it anymore. I'm sure this little darling's parents are of a similar vein.

My kids are raised with the knowledge that respect is something you have to earn, you'll get it when you've done something worthy of it.

Well, folks have you ever done a wedding cake and the bride and groom try to scam half of what they paid for it, or the whole amount. You've all heard the excuses, it was dry, it fell apart blah blah blah, but no pics and they have eaten all the cake.

THOSE ARE THE CHILDREN OF THOSE COUPLES! icon_evil.gif

Priceless!!! You handled it vey well. Bratty kids (especially in a restaurant) are a SERIOUS pet peeve of mine.

Amen, Loucinda!! I work in a huge restaurant that caters to tourists, carrying huge trays of food and hot coffee pots, while parents let their little darlings run around their table! I can't tell you the number of times I've had to dodge these kids while the parents are completely oblivious!!

Me, too! And I didn't want to go to jail for setting one of those little darlings straight.

I would have offered to make his birthday cake.........................

Haha! I still can't believe the nerve of that kid. I am pretty sure his parents gave him money and sent him to the festival alone, to torment a cake lady!! I tall ya, it took all I had not to curse at him or wallop him! LOL I'll put that in my book of WTH moments!!

Just for the record, that McDonald's case wasn't frivolous. The restaurant had been knowingly serving the coffee way too hot for a long time and had been warned about it several times before. It was kept that hot so that by the time people got to work, it would still be hot, but not so hot as to give them 3rd degree burns like it would if they attempted to drink it when served.

The plaintiff originally sought to settle the case for $20,000, probably the cost of her medical bills (she suffered 3rd degree burns over 6% of her body in the span of about 7 seconds) but McDonald's refused. That is why she sued.

I wish people actually knew the facts of that case before using it as an example of frivolous lawsuits.

As for the kid in the OP, it's been said before but I'll say it again. I'm not patient enough to deal with that crap, but then I don't really like brats no matter the age. I probably would have berated him until he cried.

Wow! I might have had to given myself a time out to calm down before being able to deal with that kid! My son will be two in October, and he already knows how to say thank you. I would have been mortified if my son had done anything like that!
