Rosebel commented: “Your sister looks awful.. Your [daughter] was dancing, what’s wrong with that? I would have actually told my sister not to be so ab**** and apologize for [daughter]. I wouldn’t invite her over when my [daughter] wasn’t there either.”

Isaidno once said, “She fucks 9 not 19, they all don’t give a damn about dancing. Seriously, I’d be more concerned about an overly mature kid than an immature one.” And VerySmallClanger added, “I think your sister was very mean!

Jumping around and playing dumb is the kind of thing I would expect from a 2/3 year old happy to have a visitor, not a 9 year old.”

BungleandGeorge added: “I think your sister was unnecessarily grumpy, she needs to work on her own tolerance and maturity if she picks on a dancing 9 year old. Your daughter seems a little too sensitive but that’s maybe just his personality.”
