Kyesha Smith Wood from Alabana wrote a Facebook post to apologize to a stranger woman who was treated with a “rude, obnoxious and disrespectful” behavior while watching a movie by Kyesha’s 2 daughters.
Kyesha wrote in her post:
“This is a long shot, but I’m looking for a woman that was at Tannehill Premier tonight seeing Cinderella at 7pm. I dropped my teenage daughter, step daughter, and son off at the movie. My son later told me, much to my humiliation and embarrassment, that my girls were rude and obnoxious during the movie. The woman I’m looking for addressed them and asked them to be quiet and they were disrespectful. After the movie she approached my girls and told them that her husband had been laid off and this was the last movie she would be able to take her daughter to for a while and my girls ruined that for her. If you are this woman, please message me. I can assure you that these girls are being strongly dealt with and appropriately punished. This rude, disrespectful, and awful behavior is unacceptable and they owe you an apology. My husband and I are having them write your apology letter tonight and we would like to pay for your next movie and snacks out of their allowance. Please message me if this is you. I apologize profusely for their disrespect.”
Soon her post was shared by a sheriff on the Jefferson County Sheriff Facebook page so that the message somehow reaches that stranger Keysha was looking for. Finally the stranger, Rebecca Boyd, received the apology.
Rebecca sent a message to Keysha writing –
“I am the mom from the movie theatre. I had taken my daughter to see Cinderella..I was very upset and disappointed in the girls behavior…the note from their mom brought me to tears and shows there is still good people in the world. I have no hard feelings towards them and I am proud of their parents. The girls are not not bad…they are children. Glad they are learning a lesson. I hope if my teenagers are out and they act up…I hope someone says something to them.”
We agree with Rebecca. Keysha is certainly the ‘Parenting-done-right’ mommy.
