Woman with profanity on T-shirt at park playground.

I am at a local public park... somewhere I wouldn't be except my granddaughter asked if I would take her there.

Along comes a young woman. A very unattractive woman, if that matters, wearing a T-shirt with F__K_n written across the front of the shirt in very large letters. She was a large woman.

She walks over and strikes up a conversation with another woman, right where all the kids are playing. Right there for all the kids to see.

I was thinking about asking her why she would wear that to the park where kids are playing, but I was afraid she might take it off out of spite.

What would you have done?

I expect most here will say I should mind my own business and avoid the public if I am so easily offended.

Did you ask her if she was on food stamps?

This has happened to me on three separate occasions. Each time I ripped the shirt from the brazen whore of Babylon's gelatinous torso, shredded it with my scary-sharp Spyderco blade, and set it afire with my trusty Zippo WWII replica. I then gave the miscreant a severe tongue lashing and sent her on her way back to the bowels of the WalMart from whence she came.

I'm thinking you're too easily offended. Its a shirt. Tell your granddaughter about the shirt and use it as an object lesson. Leave the fat, ugly woman alone (unless you're into that scene).

I can't imagine seeing that at a public park...I feel out of touch. I honestly don't know what I would actually do (if anything).

I think I would take the high road.
By high road, I mean would call 911 using a fake old lady voice and complain until they sent an officer, then I would sit and watch and deny that I was even aware of the shirt if asked.

Nothing. It wouldn't do anything but possibly provoke her and escalate the situation. Even if you had spoken your mind what would have been gained? Peace of mind? IMO,just best to let it go.

I didn't want to see her without a shirt on.

As we were walkinh away I told my granddaughter that woman is a good example of what you don't want to become.

Walk close by her and then make eye contact when you look at her face. Jump back with a startled look on your face and loudly say "****!"

Then point at her shirt and laugh and say "Wow! It says what we're all thinking!"

She wanted to be noticed for something other than her obesity. Sounds like she had a lot of ground to cover.

I would say something rude and obnoxious, and then take my kids to another park.

She must like it if she's let you do it 3x.

What is wrong with saying something? So what if it escalates. She's in a public park with kids that don't need to see or hear that Sh**.

true, much easier to explain the simple profanity to my girls than to get into what would make a ******y pasty white hipster wear one of those shirts.

Was at a water park.

Woman in front of me had a trap stamp that said: Classy F_ _ _

My first thought was. . . False advertising

You're also not the judge of what people get to wear outside.



Choosing to start an altercation, pretty much assures that your kids are going to get more of a lesson in words than reading one off a shirt.
