I’m not a parent, but one thing I do know about children is thatthey genuinely couldn’t care less if their clothes are designer fashion or not. They only want to play and, well, be a kid, so you might not want to glam them for a day at the park.
One mom, however, disagrees with me and a majority of the population.
She was so outraged when herthree-year-old daughter came back from a playdate with pen marks on her 325( virtually $400 U.S .) shoes that she sent the other mama an invoice.
This is real life , people.
Sarah Louise Bryan is available on ITV’s Good Morning Britain to justifycharging her friend( or, rather, “friend” at this point) for her daughter’s ruined shoes.
Especially becausethe toddler owns around 60 pairs of shoes and now she’s out one of those pairs.
I don’t have 60 of anything other than plastic bags jostle in plastic bags shoved in a drawer.
Much like me, host Piers Morgan wasn’t convinced.
” Your three-year-old daughter has 60 pairs of shoes, you send her in a 325 pair of loots to your mates house and she gets a few pens marks on it which, by the way, happens to 3-year-old girls ,” he told.” Ive got a 5-year-old girl, they get pen marks, they draw and then, when she comes back with pen marks, you have the audacity to send her an invoice .”
And she also had the tone-deaf boldnes to ask Morgan what he would do if his child, heavenforbid, is coming from a playdate with marks on their designer shoes( gasp !).
“What would I do !? I wouldnt be buying my daughter 325 pairs of shoes to start with! “
He then went off a little bit, causing the mama to cry.
” This is nothing to do with my parenting and it is not fair other than bullying ,” she told.” You know, when I was younger I got abused and everything .”
Okay, that’s horrible, but it also has nothing to do with charging your friend virtually $400 for your kid’s shoes.
What do you think?
Does she have a point or is she simply ridiculous?
