So J and I went in to pick up my paycheque from work and there is a new male bartender who I have met once and I really didn't like him. So I walk in and he says "hey bitch"..then J laughs and says bitch very proud of himself. I told him no Joshua we can't use that word and I then asked one of my co-workers to take him outside to play. I walked up to this doucher and I said "listen, I know you where joking but a.you don't know me well enough to talk to me like that and b.what makes you think it is acceptable to talk to me that way while I have my son with me?" His response "It's not like he knows what it means"
I don't think I was so upset that J repeated it-even though he has been saying it all day now. I have been ignoring it and letting him get it out of his system, should I ignore it?
I think I was most upset because this "man" talked to me that way infront of my son. I know he was "joking" but I found it really unacceptable! At the risk of sounding like a femenist I don't want my son talking to woman that way
