Woman blasted for rant demanding school-run mums should try harder to look pretty

She sparked fury with online post

| Updated:

A woman has been slammed for demanding that other mums on the school run should make more effort with their hair and make-up.

In an online post that’s gone viral because of the outrage it has sparked, she urged fellow mothers to “try a little” with their appearance to spare others the sight of “rat-nest hair”.

She wrote: “Ladies, even if you aren’t getting out of the car at drop off, can you please try a little.

“I look around as I’m walking my daughter to the front door and all we see is rat nest hair, no make-up, eye bags out to wherever and I’m not 100 per cent but I think I smell morning breath coming from these cars.”

The woman claimed that her seven-year-old daughter was proud of her for being “so pretty”, unlike other mums who “all look so old”.

She added: “On the real, if my seven year old can see you aren’t even trying, what is your husband thinking? Take some pride.”

The post, shared on the Facebook page of parenting site Sanctimommy, caused understandable anger from other mums.

It has received more than 1,000 comments, including one from a mother who wrote: “I can’t roll my eyes hard enough at this person’s post.”

Another said: “I’d be so ashamed if my seven year old said something like this. We’d be having a long talk.”

A third added sarcastically: “I’d get out of the car to smack this judgmental witch if it weren’t for the fact that I was still in my pyjamas and haven’t brushed my teeth.”

Someone else said jokingly: “If I washed my hair and put on make-up to take my kids to school, my husband would have hired a private detective to find out who I was having an affair with.”

Others doubted the seven-year-old’s apparent comments were genuine.

Posting a screenshot of the original rant, Sanctimommy’s Facebook page administrator wrote: “What better mother-daughter activity is there than harshly judging other women for their appearance in the privacy of their own vehicles at 7am?

“My husband is thinking ‘thanks, wife, for dropping the kid off at school so I don’t have to’.”
