You know, the woman who knows everything and is never afraid to tell you in the most direct and degrading way? Especially when it comes to motherhood.”She didn’t see my toddler have a good old cry and scream over which trolley we took, she didn’t catch him stealing grapes out of the bag that we hadn’t paid for yet and she hadn’t even seen him chuck a wobbly because I didn’t have any coins to toss down the money spinner in the entrance way.”What she did witness however, was me closing the car door with my son inside it as I walked away. I was walking from my car to the trolley bay which was a mere two car spots over from my parked car.”Child strapped in safely, happily watching Bluey, window half down and keys in my pocket nowhere near the ignition. She proceeded to scoff at my ‘negligence’ and how unthinkable it was to leave a child unattended and that it was ‘so typical of new young mums’ to do what makes them comfortable and not what is best for the child overall.”Sophie told her followers she tried to keep things “friendly” with the unknown woman, pointing out she’d simply made a quick dash and not a hike over to the other side of the car park.But eventually she had enough.She told the stranger once and for all: “Although it wasn’t her business, if she really felt that concerned on the situation, to properly asses it all first and maybe don’t speak so horrendously about another human being while doing so?”Read MoreTop news stories todayCoronavirusFury as Scots Transport Police chief makes 480 mile round trips to second home during lockdownEddie Wylie admitted making two trips from Glasgow to his Yorkshire family home to see his wife after the Record were tipped off by a BTP whistleblower.Tragic pals found dead at different addresses just hours after seeing each otherPolicePolice probe deaths as heartfelt tributes pour in.Person dies after being struck by train at Scots stationScotrailEmergency services were on the scene at around 6.10pm on Friday.Mum shamed at supermarket for ‘unthinkable’ negligence while putting trolley awaySupermarketsA young mum saw red after a stranger berated her parenting skills in a supermarket car park
