Was having a leisurely coffee in the Cliffe late last week, and witnessed the most awful behaviour from the lady selling junk next to the real eating company. She shouted at a little girl for touching some cheap looking jewellery. I've never witnessed such horribleness from a complete stranger and to a child.....bringing her to tears ...!

Sounds like the same woman who upset my 9 year old with very similar behaviour a few months back. She didn't respond well to being called out about it either. If she doesn't like people she shouldn't run a shop.

Yeah she's well known for being completely mental, she also doesn't like it if you go in the shop and don't buy anything (and good luck asking questions).

And the parking wardens are frightened of her and never, ever give her a ticket. She parks with a disabled sticker, usually in Morris Road, but often leaves her enormous car opposite the shop......

Should not the naughty child have been better behaved? I would slap my children's hands if they touched items in a shop, and my family has grown up into responsible adulthood.

@sensible, clearly you're an arse, forming an opinion without knowing what you're talking about.
Here's a few thoughts for you:
1. She shouts at adults for asking about the items
2. She shouts at adults for wasting her time if they don't buy items
3. Slapping children is assault
4. Physical violence is an absurd response for touching an item in a shop (are you mental or just abused as a child)
5. What are you going to do when you're child is fully grown and hates you?

She really is a deeply unpleasant woman. Whilst I wouldn't normally condone people slating the proprietors of shops generally on this forum , she has to be one of the most dreadful women I have ever encountered and a huge embarassment to Lewes. She pops up on this forum quite regularly and perhaps someone should send her a hard copy of some of those remarks so she could learn how people feel about her. I'm not sure it would make much difference though. I would be interested to know why she is so obstreperous ???

I'm not offended the woman is mental. I am slightly concerned by the need to slap a child for touching though.

A light slap on the hands is not assault - get a grip ffs

@Dfl, you're totally missing the point, a "slap" was mentioned, not a "light slap".
But you're teaching the child it's ok to use physical violence for "touching"...
What happens when that child slaps another child for touching their pencils at school, are you going to slap them again to teach them slapping is not ok?

I have never in my life come across such a rude lady running a shop dealing with customers. To be honest she is now encroaching on the pavement and it is difficult to negotiate a route past if there is traffic, I hat to think what she would do if you accidently knocked some tat off one of her precariously positioned tables. I once offered her a pound for something off her everything is a pound table to which she replied it it had been a pound she would not have a business!!

Lou you are absolutely right and I stand corrected. This shouldn't be a witch hunt I was just still smarting from her rude behaviour towards me. This isn't the place and clearly she has issues that she isn't aware of and needs help with. I should be more compassionate. Thank you for reminding me of that.

You got it right the first time, the comments on this thread are not proportionate to how she behaves (compared to how she behaves the comments are very measured).
Someone who has been abused by her has no need to apologise for sharing the experience.

So anyone feeling aggrieved by someone here in the local community should come on this forum and name and shame? Who the heck is moderating all of this? It's bad form to post photographs of people without their permission, and yet that's what's allowed to happen here. And anyone who has beef with someone else can go behind their backs and publicly declare what a horrible person they think they are to all and sundry. This forum can really stink sometimes.

The lady is in bad health, and probably deserves her blue badge. However, she does take the mickey by leaving her car in Cliffe all day. She also dumps it in the middle of the two disabled spaces in Morris Road- thus depriving another disabled driver of a parking space.
The "traffic wardens" have been told to stop ticketing her as she has had so many successful appeals.

I don't doubt the lady deserves the badge, and I can say from experience that Arthritis can make one downright grumpy, but a job facing the public is not the best occupation, and one I have avoided. There isn't much work available for us Raspberry Ripples, Luckily I have 12 hours spread over a week so I can lounge around @ home

dfl: you are so wrong. An assault does not even need to involve contact, The threat is enough. This from the Crown Prosecution Service web site:
An assault is committed when a person intentionally or recklessly causes another to apprehend the immediate infliction of unlawful force.

The OP said 'shouted' not 'slapped' the child. Amazing how that's got mixed up. Anyway, she's well known for being rude to customers - I enquiried about some earrings in her shop once and was told they were too expensive for me! Haven't been back.
