I might be wrong, but I think that most people would agree that yelling at someone is probably not the best way to handle even the most stressful situation, but the title of the thread mentioned wigging out on someone, so it sounds like she knows that maybe she over reacted, but was looking for some support in the area of
"we've all been there...no one's perfect...understand being frustrated..."
stuff like that.
I think most of us have reacted badly to things sometimes, and when it comes to our kids sometimes we freak out especially hard.
I wonder what the man thought, or if he talked about it later with someone. Maybe someone said to him
'we've all made mistakes...no one's perfect...you live you learn.."
whatever, I mean, maybe he will think next time. Maybe the poster will be have a better means to nip this in the bud next time.
Also, I think some people are imaging a greasy old man v/s an elderly, soft spoken man with some slight dementia....
