COLMA — A shopper at a Colma store was punched in the face by a mother after telling her to quiet down her child, who was throwing a tantrum CBS reports.
Natalie Bree Hajek-Richardson said that she was in the checkout line of the Nordstrom Rack when a child between the age of 4 and 6 began throwing a loud tantrum.
“It didn’t bother me that the child was throwing the tantrum, but the volume was very loud, it was hurting my ears,” Hajek-Richardson said.
The shopper politely asked the child’s mother if she could quiet the child down.
That’s when things started to escalate.
“She came to the side of me and told me not to tell her child what to do. And I told her that I didn’t ask your child what to do, I asked you very nicely to calm down your child just a little bit,” Hajek-Richardson recalled.
Hajek-Richardson said she then told the mom off. “I told her to go to hell and she told me I’ll see you there,” she said.
When Hajek-Richardson left the store, she said the mom followed her to her car. “Was asking me, ‘Where’d you tell me to go?’ So I repeated again what I said to her, and I told her that I told her to go to hell,” she said.
