She Was Happy to Let the Neighborhood Kids Play in Her Grandpa’s Playground, Until One Obnoxious Mother Ruined It for Everyone

The woman wrote, “My grandparents owned the lot next to their house; they just used it for more yard space. But when my sister and I were born, Grandpa knocked down the old shed on the empty lot and built a playground for us.”

Everything was made with his own two hands. It was a kid’s dream, and we both played there any chance we got. And after we grew up, they let the kids of their neighborhood use the place to play with no issues,” she added. “But then, some years later, they passed, and the house went to my mom.”

When they moved in, they noticed that local families frequently used the playground. The couple didn’t mind, and they’d soon met many of the moms and dads who brought their kids there.

However, a problem occurred one day when a woman named Nancy brought her child to the playground. The woman was at the sink, and she looked out the window and saw a young boy on the roof of a playhouse.

The roof of the playhouse was 10 feet in the air. The woman screamed at the boy to get down. Suddenly, Nancy appeared from nowhere and told the woman to stop shouting at her boy.

While the two women argued, the boy fell from the playhouse. Thankfully, he was not injured, but he screamed long and hard.

Nancy told the woman that she was lucky that her son was not hurt because she would have sued if he were.

The woman discussed the issue with Andre. He was concerned that if anything happened on the playground, they could be open to legal problems. They decided to erect a fence.

The other parents wondered why the playground was fenced off. The woman informed them that Nancy had threatened to sue if her kid fell, so they had no choice. Nancy has now been ostracized by the other parents.

Was she in the right?

The woman felt bad that Nancy was getting so much heat. She wrote to an online forum and asked if she should have hidden the real reason the playground was fenced off.

One poster said, “It’s your right to protect yourself from harm. If ANY child gets hurt on your property, the parents can sue the pants off of you.”

While another commenter replied, “I don’t think there’s any shame in calling out people who spoil things for everyone else.”
