My Neighbor Kid Is An Asshole

And, just wasting my energy on this little tweentard mental ninja of Jedi, fuck with my daughter's mind tricks is pissing me off.

Here's the thing. The kid made my kid cry and now she's going to pay.

She's run a steady show of bitchiness that we have tolerated up to this point. My soft spoken, kindhearted daughter typically shrugs it off and goes on her way. But, she's fucked with her brother and now Monkey is not happy.

Monkey takes very good care of her brother, because as she said, "He's the only one I have now and I want to protect him." So when the neighbor kid got pissed at Monkey for paying attention to her brother and not to her she blurted out, "He's only your HALF brother anyway." She just tossed that in her non-stop stream of snotty, bitch face comments.

I just realized I'm too mad to even do this right now.

My kid sat, curled up against my side, sobbing last night.

Jason and I tagged team the kid at the bus stop this morning. First, he pulled up next to her and said, "Before you come over and play again, I'm having a talk with your mother." Without knowing this, I pulled up next to her:

Me: You know, you really hurt Monk's feelings last night?

It: How?

Me: By telling her that her brother was only her half brother...

It: I didn't mean...

Me: I don't care what you meant. Are you aware that her brother died?

It: Yes I am.

Me: Well then have a little consideration for her feelings about her brother. He is the only one she has and she loves him. You need be a little bit nicer to my daughter, young lady.


Yeah, I busted out a young lady.

Whatever.

This is stupid.

That kid sucks.

She deserved it. Even if she didn't mean it, even if she's just a kid and kids say stupid/mean/awful stuff, she needed to know it's not right. Not at all. We gotta learn our lessons somehow. Hopefully she's learned hers.

I'll be encouraging your husband to spray the brat next time.

Betsey Booms said...

Seriously, this kid is the pits.

I'm going to hire a middle school thug to whoop up on her.

Bird Shit and Baby Caca said...

that kid sounds like such a little bitch! it's a shame that as adults we can't beat kids like that up LOL

SK said...

BURN. You're an awesome mom. :)

Dirty Pirate Hooker said...

I'll dress up like a middle schooler and kick her pre-pubescent ass!!!

Nicely done dude.

ghost of keywork said...

I'm fairly certain I could take at least a dozen twelve year olds before I got tired.

Rassles said...

She probably didn't even know it was such a bratty little thing to say, because she's never taken the time to consider anyone's feelings other than her own.

God, I seriously hate children sometimes.

Rassles said...

No, I don't hate them.

Ours is a relationship of ambivalence.

Betsey Booms said...

I'm not a big fan of kids.

My own are the exception. And we know another couple who has kids that I could fold up and put in my pocket because they are little people who just house a whole lot of awesome.

Other than that? I avoid kids and they avoid me.

Because, evidently? I'm the one who tells them when are they are being assholes.

Good for you for telling her that was shitty. You know what's even worse than kids saying that? Adults. Years ago, I was like 13 when my first brother was on the way, yes we have same dads different moms, but I was excited to finally have a sibling and distinctions like half my brother were stupid. My stepmom was having a baby shower and one of her friends asked me how I felt about the new baby and I said, oh my gawd, I am sooo excited to have a brother. My stepmom's mom corrected me in front of everyone and said, "you mean a half brother." Even at that age I knew that was beyond douchy.

SciFi Dad said...

Fuck me she didn't say that!

As someone with a sister who happens to have a different biological mom than I do, I cannot even begin to understand why she would say that. I mean, logically, even giving her argument consideration, Monkey's brother is still closer to her than this little "friend".

Brutal.

This is the kind of stuff I'm dreading...both my kid being the prick and picking on other kids and/or my kid getting picked on.

rachie! said...

What a poopy bitch face! I have 4 half sisters, 2 half brothers and 1 whole brother. I always think the half distinction sounds like they are half a person and I hate it. Then I have to explain all the drama that has caused such a mess of a family... not worth it.
Your monkey is a sweetheart and I hope she keeps loving and appreciating her brotherS that much.

Miss Yvonne said...

The good news is that you are raising a kind and sensitive daughter...try to think about that instead of all the bitchy asshole kids out there.

Deb said...

I hate neighbor kids who turn out to be rotten. I love your kids already. :) That 'young lady' better learn some manners.

Gwen said...

Good for you for setting her straight. She needed to hear that from someone. Sorry to hear she made your little girl cry.

Bluestreak said...

"young lady" would have made me crap my pants. I hope that little girl has been all stressed out about her mom finding out. Little brat.

Sarah said...

I would totally see red if it was my kid. Half brother my ass. What an assholish thing to say. I'm glad you spoke up!

honesty is reality
get the fuck over it

Pam said...

that girl sucks! I'm sorry for what she said to your girl- that was just mean!

Lisa..... said...

The whole half sister, half brother thing should just be dropped from everyone's vocabulary. Kids shouldn't even learn it. The thing that really sucks is she heard somewhere else first. Someone taught that kid to be mean like that.

A few weeks ago this psycho toddler jumped on my kid for no reason and started this twisted eye gouging biting psychosis. I've never been angrier in my life. It took all the will power I had not to rip that demon child up by the back of the neck and slinging it into the middle of next week.

I fear that this is the first time of many though.

I cannot BELIEVE the restraint you showed. You're my hero.

gnomespeak said...

Kid deserved it. Completely.

Shawna said...

Shitty kids come from asshole parents. It’s a scientific fact.

Kat said...

Not a big fan of other people's kids either. The tag-team is awesome, you both probably scared the crap out of her. I would say maybe you made her think but that would be too optimistic.

My next door neighbor's kid steals packages off our front doorstep, I kid you not. The mail carrier told me, when we left a note about a package that showed delivered that we never got. Conveniently, his mom brought it over the same day. When I see him outside now, I stop what I'm doing and just stare at him pointedly...I can tell it freaks him out, little thieving prick.

I loved moms like you when I was a kid, Betsey. My brother and I were horrible (too much to go into here) and we both adored adults who told us to knock that shit off. It gave us some kind of permission to just be fun, silly, interesting kids. Instead of little angry monsters.
Job well done.
