So this is going to be a judgemental post.
Tonight we went to Maccas for dinner. While we were there a man with (I assume) his two daughters was also there.
He was obviously not having the best day. A small sample of what he said to the girls was "If you don't f**king sit down and shut up, I'll f**king hit you", "I don't want to hear your f**king whiney voice again" and he threatened in similar terms to leave them behind.
One of the kids (about 7yo) also wanted to argue with me when I took DS to the toilet because boys aren't allowed in the girls. She had come out of the parents room
Now I accept there are people who talk to their kids like this, as horrible as it is, but what made it worse for me is the guy was wearing his work uniform and worked at a local health/disability services organisation.
I always took the attitude that when I was in work clothing I was representing the company so was on "good" behavior. Do others feel that way or do you think the representation ends when you leave the workplace?
