Mother Loses It At Local Mall

Pleasanton, CA-- A mother shopping for school clothes with her two young daughters was found shouting at vendors at a local mall.

According to witnesses, a kiosk vendor approached the shopper while she and her daughters were between stores. He offered to use his hair device on her and she wrestled him to the ground and threatened his life.

"Man, I don't know what's wrong with that lady," said the vendor who was too shaken to give his name. "I just asked if she had a few moments and she came unglued."

Authorities report when the victim approached the woman with a hair product, she first shouted something to the effect that if she didn't have time to curl her hair at home, why was it a good idea to curl it at the mall? Then when the vendor closed in on her with the styling wand, she pushed him to the ground, grabbed the product and threatened him with it. No one is quite sure what happened next.

Selma Jones, of Livermore, was a witness to the commotion. "She looked nice enough. She was carrying a couple of shopping bags and one of the girls was crying for shoes, but nothing out of the ordinary. Then this outburst. Those poor children."

Other witnesses have a different account. Shoppers in several stores report the children had driven their mother to the edge. Both were seen grabbing clothes from racks with no regard for size, dancing shamelessly in dressing rooms while singing songs from the Grease sound track and begging for purses to match every outfit. The family was between a clothing store and a shoe store when the attack occured.

In her own defense, the mother said, "You take my kids shopping and you'll see why those vendors shouldn't mess with me."

Authorities decline to comment on any charges being filed. At last report, the mother was in her home with a glass of wine and the children were safe with their father.

    Sorry I missed the fracas, but I was busy fending off the almond oil moisturizer samples from the toiletries kiosk near Starbucks. Perhaps if we team up we could take these folks out, one vendor at a time.
