Grocery StoreI was at the grocery store earlier today and passed a mother scolding her daughter and threatening to take her to the ladies room to "adjust her attitude." i knew exactly what that mom meant...if that little girl kept being bad she would walk into the ladies room with a white bottom and walk out with a stinging red one.
When i was little i was brought out of more than one public restroom with tears streaming down my cheeks and my tush on fire.
Mom carried a wooden spoon in her purse just in case my brother, sister, or i stepped too much out of line. And she didn't care if there was anyone in the restroom, our undies would be pulled down and we'd feel that spoon on our bare butts and thighs.
She would spank us in public just enough to get our undivided attention....when she got us home is when the real spanking happened.
