What is wrong with people? We’re sitting in the waiting room and there is a little boy, a bit younger than Emmett. He is ovbiouly non-verbal and being treated absolutely horribly by his grandfather.
I have to say this and hate me if you must. I don’t care about cultural differences, there is a right way and a wrong way to treat a child, let alone a child like that.
Twice now, I have seen the grandfather pick this child up by his arm and once by his leg, after the child fell off a table. That’s right, the grandfather was too busy playing with his phone to watch his grandson. The child wandered over to this table and climbed up before tumbling over.
The guy literally picked this poor child up by the ankle and put him back on the table he just fell off of.
I hope you don’t lose respect for me but in the interest of honesty, it was really hard for me not to go over there and punch this guy, right in the kisser.
I’m not violent by nature and I like to think that I have a decent amount of patience but that guy pushed all only my buttons, at the same time.
Deep breathing…… 🙁
