I want to rip this lady's bitch's head off with a dull knife laced in lemon juice and salt. I'm so upset right now I don't even know what to say. I'm going to take a deap breath now. Woo-sha.

OK, so this is what happened. I went to take my spin class today. And from the get-go it felt like everything was against me. There's construction going on on the main road by our house, so it took me almost 15minutes to even get out of my own neighborhood. There was some crazy accident going on, so there was even more traffic from emergency vehicles trying to get through. On top of that there was just the normal 5PM traffic. So it was pretty terrible. I get to my class about 10 minutes late.

20 minutes later a lady comes in and tells me that my baby is crying. I ask what they've tried, and asked her if it's possible for her to try to feed her and then I'll be there in 10 minutes. She says fine and walks away. Great. I think it's resolved... right?

No. I get to the day care finally, and this is where I meet the person who I want to kill. She's holding my baby, who's crying like crazy, and she tells me she needs to talk to me. She proceeds to tell me how the people at the day care told me "multiple times" to come and get my child, and that I have a problem "coming on time," and that my "child is never quiet." And blah blah blah. First off... "multiple times"? Excuse me? I'm going to slit your throat lady, because your little minion only told me once. Second, I don't have a problem coming when we're called--sorry it takes 5 minutes for me to get off my machine (on the second floor), go to the locker room (on the first floor) and get my stuff, and then walk all the way over to the day care (on the other side of the building). Third, she doesn't usually have this problem. There are several women who take care of her there, and she's usually very good. Something is different about right now and your frustration and your stupidity that's making her cry.

So, defensive, I told her that her accusations are ridiculous, and I completely disagree. Tomorrow morning I will be contacting the gym again, and contacting her direct-line supervisor until I get a good reprimand. I'll teach that stupid bitch to mess with me. Never mess with a mommy. Never.

P.S. Baby is sleeping now. She has been since I picked her up from the day care. Cozy, cute, and wonderfully quiet.


  1. ugh. that is just so frustrating! I've been there and I know exactly how you feel!! Their job is to take care of/entertain your kid for one hour --why can't they seem to get that done? I had to quit a gym for the same reason, they told me my child "wasn't working out".

    I agree...never mess with a mommy! :) I hope tomorrow is a better day for you!

  2. So sorry for your horrible experience! I have a son who's had a hard time being left in gym daycare, and I don't know what I would have done if they hadn't worked with him to get him through his fussiness. You're right, don't mess with a mommy!
    One suggestion is to workout at home. It saves SO much time (especially drive time on a day like today) and is cheaper than a gym membership and a lot less headache. I put my kiddos down for naps and workout in my garage. I take the monitors, so I have tabs on both kiddos and I can get in an AWESOME workout. My fav videos are P90X, Insanity and TurboFire. They helped me lose the rest of my babyweight and then some.
    Let me know if you have any questions!

  3. I would have told her where to go as well. LEt us know how you go with the follow up. that is absolutely ridiculous! Seriously children cry at childcare and you dont see carers ringing up parents at work saying come and get your child and be here in 1 minute! How silly. They are offering a service and not following through with it. I am angry for you!!
