"If you don't shut that baby up, I will shut her up for you."
That's what Roger Stephens, 61 years old, said to Sonya Matthews, mother of a crying 2-year-old girl, at a WalMart this week.
Umm. Er. I'm not even going to speculate on what would cause this man to act like such a _______ (insert description of your choice).
Ms. Matthews reports that her daughter was unharmed -- a relief! But now, I can't stop wondering what I would have done in her situation.
I tend to freeze when I'm in shock, but I like to think I'd turn into a frothing-at-the-mouth, bringer-of-the-pain Mama Bear if anyone ever slapped my baby in the face.
And you? What would you do?
