    Cassandra :-)

    Post  Admin on Tue Jun 02, 2009 10:14 am

    I met Cassandra in college. One night, a bunch of us were sitting around,
    eating pizza, and talking about life after college. Most of the girls were
    speaking of the children they were planning to have someday. I had after-college
    plans too, but none of them included kids, so I kept my mouth shut.

    Cassandra was no shrinking violet. She spoke right up about her plans of never
    having kids and traveling the globe, and from the response, you'd think she was
    advocating genocide. Anyway, we became friends that night. 35 years later, we
    live on opposite sides of the world but still stay in touch.

    Anyway, Cassandra and I have had an ongoing contest of sorts to see who can have
    the most outrageous interaction with bad and/or inconsiderate parents. Ground
    rules are that there must be no bloodshed and all activities must be legal.

    So, here's a Cassandra story:
    Cassandra was in a department store trying on clothes, and the fitting rooms
    were all filled. She could clearly hear the sounds from a fitting room of a
    parent talking to her baby while she changed its diaper. Cassandra was outraged
    that the woman was taking care of her baby's excrement in a fitting room, of all
    places. So she waited, and when the woman with the baby came out, she had LEFT
    THE DIRTY DIAPER WADDED UP IN THE FITTING ROOM. Health issues aside, Cassandra
    was outraged.

    Cassandra, being Cassandra, grabbed the wadded dirt diaper and ran after the
    woman, stuffed the diaper into the woman's bag, and said sweetly, "You left your
    package in the fitting room, I wanted to be sure you didn't lose it."

    The mother started screaming at her and Cassandra walked away. She told me
    later, "I did my good deed of the day."

    Contest score: Cassandra-1, Sharona-0

    I can NOT believe that a parent would do that!!!
    Good for your friend Cassandra for doing what she did!

    There was a recycling bin on our street, but the families with babies kept
    throwing the diapers and their cat's sand in the bin.
    I used to pick up their trash with diapers and throw them away in the correct
    bin (for regular garbage). The "mommies" kept gossiping and looking at me with
    disgust while they passed by with the strollers. None of them had a clue what
    was going on. The municipality took the bin away, and now the rest of us have to
    recycle 2 blocks away.

    Maybe we should invite Cassandra here ?:-))))) I have a sneaky feeling she would
    fit in!

    J/k, but please do keep us posted on the contest results...stories like that
    make my day.

    I thought about it. I think Cassandra is too extreme even for this place.
    She's actually acts out all the things that my evil dark side only thinks about
    and then dismisses as too extreme. Her stories could never be posted on tpf.

    Example: regarding breastfeeding in public. Myself, I have no issues if it's
    discreet. If it's blatant, well, I think it's not appropriate. Cassandra, on
    the other hand, will openly stare at the the person, and comment (loudly and
    rudely) on the view, i.e., "Nice boob, but it's really going to need a sturdy
    bra to hold it up when the kid's done using it."

    Sometimes Cass crosses the line. But I find it hilarious because she says out
    loud what I only think to myself.

    I'm so glad we're in a place where I can share this kind of stuff.

    Personally, I'll love to read Cassandra's stories. I'm not easily offended by
    stuff that makes most people cringe. Maybe I'm sociopath after all! LOL
