Thursday, June 16, 2011 – I saw a nanny walking down Fifth Avenue pushing a young girl, approximately 2 ½ year old, screaming her head off with real tears and her face flushed red because she had being crying for so long. The nanny was on her cell phone talking away. The nanny was African-American, (no accent), late 20's to early 30's, short, petite and had long curly hair with some rust highlights (to the shoulder). She was wearing sunglasses and had on a spaghetti top shirt that was a tiered ruffled type with white, tan, yellow being the color of the tiers. She was indignant. I approached her and told her to get off the phone (she kept talking away) and tend to the little girl and she used extremely foul language to me at the top of her lungs in front of your child. I won’t mention the words but they started with the letter “F” and many variations thereof. She said, “If you are so worried about her why don’t you take care of her then?” Nice attitude. I said that if I did she would have a better chance. This was peppered with additional foul language in front of her child. She was a nasty, vile woman and whoever employs this nanny should fire her immediately as now it is screamingly obvious how she handles your precious little girl. She does not care about your daugher and obviously does not want to take care of her either. I told her that I would never allow my child to be cared for by someone like her. Other people in the area (even the newsstand owner) were just as horrified. Poor baby. The little girl was approximately 2 ½ years old with light brown wavy hair. Her was sort of a bob style (chin length). She was wearing a dress or skirt but I was so upset that I cannot recall the details. I wish that I had my cell phone with me to take a picture.
The nanny crossed at 23rd and Fifth Avenue heading towards Madison Square Park with the little girl still crying. No attention paid to the girl by the nanny at any point. No comforting nothing. The nanny remained on her phone through the entire exchange. The girl looked at me pleadingly when I looked back. Poor baby. Be safe and God bless her and get her away from this wretched woman.
