Lord & Taylor in Scarsdale, NY

Received Tuesday, November 20, 2007
Verbally abusive nanny at Lord & Taylor in Scarsdale, NY. If you sent your nanny with your 2 yr old (there or about) to Lord & Taylor this morning at around 10:30 (there or about) and she was shopping in the little girl's section, you should know that your nanny was not very nice to your child. She was impatient with her. She picked her up but then complained that she was too heavy. Then she yelled at her for not sticking with her. The child didn't know what side was up. She told the child,
"you are so slow"
"move, move, let's move"
"why can't you stay still"
"go, go. go"
And she made a slew of disgusted throat sounds directed at the child, who believe or not was doing her best to keep tag with the nanny. The nanny was very interested in sorting through the children's clothes. She struck me as being just a miserable person. She grabbed at the child, dragged her by her coat sleeve, as if touching her hand would be too personal. She had no love for this child. Side note, given her excitability over shopping for clothing, I am hoping she was authorized to use your card. Child was wearing pink, brown and white vinyl puffy jacket and had blondish hair that was messy and in her face. The child also had a see thru Binky. The nanny had braids in a pony tail pulled back very tight from her face. She was tall and athletically built, not at all heavy, dressed in a grey stylish jacket and tight blue jeans.

What race was this nanny? Braids in a pony tail could be worn by a negroid, caucasoid, or mongoloid person.

Why does political correctness prevent a concerned parent from rescuing their child from this evil nanny?

Did you really have to be tasteless and say 'mongoloid'? You are an ass.

I'm from the midwest. What is a Mongoloid?

It's a very old and no longer used (by tactful sensitive people) word used to describe people with Down's Syndrome.

Although I just read the comment you referred to and I dont think they meant that. I am not sure what they mean now. Sounds distasteful either way.

Thank you. I have a sister with Downs Syndrome, and many years ago, the term 'Mongoloid' was used (mainly because they share some distinct facial characteristics). It is now a word that is synonymous with 'retard' and 'idiot' and is now considered offensive.

Is idiot now off limits?
My vocabulary is shrinking as the pc wheels keep turning.

No - don't you get it idiot?? As long as you are not trying to knock down a person with a disability, you can call anyone who deserves it an idiot.

Oh goodness. People are so uneducated on this board that no one knows that the first commenter (who said negroid, caucasoid and the term everyone is getting excited over) was talking about races and facial characteristics in proper terms that have NOTHING to do with retarded people, or insulting people who are disabled!

And also, I forgot to say . . . of course there is no reason to think that this uncaring and horrible excuse for a "nanny" was shopping for the child in question. She could easily have been shopping for her own child on her employer's time when she was supposed to be entertaining the child!

Maybe people just don't like that work and it has nothing to do with their intelligence.

If they don't like that work, they shouldn't do it. If they're going to do it anyway, they should do it well. Duh.

11:41...thanks. I knew it was (now offensive) term for people with Down Syndrome, as I stated above, but I was not sure of the posters context after I looked at it again.

Do you have nothing better to do than to troll the posts, just to let us know we're off topic? Are you that bored? Have you nothing intelligent to add to the conversation? Not all posts are going to be about the OPs subject ... and this is where all of us can learn from each other.
Check it out - maybe YOU will learn something.

People are getting worked up about the offensive racial term "mongoloid", but say nothing about the equally offensive "negroid" or "caucasoid".

Talk about selective political correctness!

i just happened to come across this site... what a mean spirtied bunch you are.

Alright, here we go... taken directly from Wikipedia:

"The term "Mongoloid" (or Oriental, also Mongolic) is a racial category used to describe people of East Asia and Southeast Asian origin. Its use originated from a variation of the word "Mongol", a people who are considered one of the main proto-populations for the race. The classification is primarily useful when studying human prehistory, and in forensic analysis of human remains, in which "Mongoloid" denotes a particular racial skull type.

It is one of the three "great races", each of which were subdivided into various racial subtypes. The other two being Europid and Negroid."

There, now, all better.

Well Anonymous - You clearly are not learning to read and write, or you would know how to differentiate "your" and "you're" .... the proper sentence would have been; "See? You're learning to read and write" As in "you are" learning to read and write. Also, many of your comments WERE actually offensive and not PC. Not that I care either way, I just find it amusing that you are insulting someone as not being intelligent while you misuse and misspell words. Ironic, don't you think? Either way, this is the digital age, if anyone wanted to identify said nanny, they should have taken a cell phone picture and posted it, that would alleviate the need to fight about PC and non PC descriptions. Just a though for the next person trying to catch a nanny...
