Rudeness will not be tolerated in Kyesha Smith Wood’s Alabama household, even if it occurs in a public space like a movie theater—and even it happens when Wood, a mother of three, is not there.
When Wood caught wind of how her daughter and stepdaughter were acting the plum fool at a local movie theater during a screening of Cinderella, she took to Facebook to find the moviegoer who was highly disturbed by her children’s antics, the Daily Mail reports.
“This is a long shot, but I’m looking for a woman that was at Tannehill Premier tonight seeing Cinderella at 7pm. I dropped my teenage daughter, step daughter, and son off at the movie,” Wood’s post began.
She went on to describe how her son told her that both her daughter and stepdaughter were cutting up during the movie and acting “rude and obnoxious,” even after one female moviegoer in particular asked them to stop.
“The woman I’m looking for addressed them and asked them to be quiet and they were disrespectful,” Wood continued. She went on to describe the part that presumably affected her the most: that the outing was a special occasion for the moviegoer and her own daughter.
“After the movie she approached my girls and told them that her husband had been laid off and this was the last movie she would be able to take her daughter to for a while and my girls ruined that for her. If you are this woman, please message me,” Wood pleaded.
Wood went on to describe that her daughters are being reprimanded to the highest degree and that she desperately wanted her daughters to apologize to the woman and her daughter.
“My husband and I are having them write your apology letter tonight and we would like to pay for your next movie and snacks out of their allowance,” Wood said, adding, “I apologize profusely for their disrespect.”
The Facebook post was shared thousands of times and fortunately caught the attention of the moviegoer, Rebecca Boyd.
“I was touched that she cared how her kids behaved,” Boyd said, and went on to say that Wood was the “real hero” for reaching out to Boyd and seeing to it that her daughters learned a valuable lesson from the incident.
“You don’t see that a lot these days,” Boyd said. “[I’ve learned] that as parents we need to support each other. The girls are not bad; they made bad choices,” Boyd continued.
According to the Daily Mail, job offers have been pouring in for Boyd’s husband.
“I am overwhelmed by all the love and support! This is something my daughter Ashley and I will never forget,” Boyd said.
