I'm sitting at a coffee shop doing some work and an older woman, a mom, and her two young kids (probably 2 and 4 or so) came and sat in the seats nearest to me in the coffee shop. The kids were being pretty loud (as to be expected from little kids) so I put my headphones on. Immediately I hear "Excuse me, excuse me!" and realize the mom is talking to me. I take my headphones off.

Mom: Are we being too noisy for you?
Me: No its ok, I can just put my headphones on
Mom: I am so so SORRY that my kids are such an INCONVENIENCE to you.

I'm baffled at this point. She's being pretty combative and all I was trying to do was get some work done.

Me: I said its ok, I'm just trying to do work.
Mom: Well you know, sometimes you have to deal with inconvenience. That's life
Me: Ok, have a good one *puts headphones on*

I'm just... I don't understand. I just put my headphones on. I didn't say a damn thing about her rowdy kids.

This sounds like something that happened. But if it did, I would have told the mom to fuck off.

if this did happen then that mom regrets choices she made that "inconvenienced" her life and she's projecting that on everyone around her. Sounds like she's just mad she can't ignore her kids lol.

Next time (if there is), ask her if you putting on your headphones is an inconvenience to her.

There is no "would of", "should of" or "could of".
There is "would've", "should've" and "could've".

lmao. She didn't have that haircut yet, too young probably. She was also pregnant, so a third kid should be on the way soon. I see that haircut in her future though

Sounds like she wanted to lose it at her annoying children but couldn't so she picked on you instead

You come across a lot of parents with bottled up rage like this, it's unfortunate

Typical mom who wasn't ready to have kids behavior. Having kids is too hard for her so she takes her frustration out on everyone around her when they're around.

Naw it sounds like she was looking for a fight. Ignoring her definitely pisses her off even more.

I believe it

Last year I was trying to help this woman who clearly needed help (and honestly could have been close to danger) and she starts screaming at me.

I kinda lost my shit at that though and couldn't keep a level head. I told her to go fuck herself and hopefully the next time she needed help no one would be around to give it to her.

She actually tried to apologize later (this was at a restaurant) but before she finished I said I was done talking about it. I know that was wrong, but I was still pissed off about it

I didn't think it was all that important, but it was on older lady who had trouble walking and she was trying to get this stupid bird who had a hurt wing and was flapping its way onto the highway. They were both starting to get really close to heavy traffic so I went over there to say "Let me get him for you" and before I could bend down to get it, she just loses her mind. Luckily the bird turned around back to the parking lot so I said what I said and left her to handle it
