"YTA This woman was not a mind reader, she had no way of knowing that you told your kids it cost money to play on a playground. It may seem obvious to you but it may not seem obvious to others. It is not common to lie to children about having to pay to go to a playground, so why on earth would she assume that's what you had done? Really, they are six and eight years old, it was only a matter of time before they found out playgrounds are free. I had my kids convinced for a long time that the toy/candy vending machines at the grocery store were broken, but eventually another parent busted me by generously giving my kids quarters and showing them how they worked while I was paying for groceries." 💥
