Sometimes we need reminders of important lessons in life, and thanks to a disgruntled Apple device owner who has yet to be identified, we're reminded of how not to act in public. Not only is it incredibly rude to scream at the top of your lungs at a store employee trying to help you, but you end up looking crazy, and you risk being caught on video for all the world to see. Remember, everyone owns smartphones these days.

That includes celebrities, like actress Porscha Coleman, best known for her guest starring TV role as Erica Willis on the UPN series The Parkers, Rachel in the Disney Channel Original Movie Pixel Perfect, and from MTV's improvisation show Wild 'n Out. Coleman just happened to be in the right place (a Los Angeles Apple Store) at the wrong time for a woman who decided it was appropriate to yell at an Apple Genius and bang on her baby stroller to vent her frustration.


"I was told by Apple Care that I could walk in the store and get the part!," the woman screams, flustering herself in the process.

Coleman captured the scene on her mobile device and uploaded it to Vine with the caption, "This lady goin OFF in the Apple Store!! Lol U dont have an appointment, lady! #coolit #chillpill #takesomemeds." What happened next is anyone's guess, but as for the 6-second video clip, it's now gone viral.

Apple Mom says don't make me angry - you won't like me when I'm angry.

I hope this is staged. No need to yell if someone told her that she could "get the part" there. Just call up the guy who told her that. Unless it wasn't an apple employee haha.

Lol people are crazy. Granted we don't know the back story of why she was doing that it is still funny.

MayhemMatthew:

And this is why working in retail is hard and not enough pay. People think they can do whatever the *uck they like.

Good point, this is why I never worked retail and never will.

This is how she teaches her baby to act.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Well I think she got the "walk-in part" that Apple Care promised...and she made an Oscar-worthy performance.

On a less serious note, I suspect the untreated medical condition she was experiencing is commonly called Postpartum Psychosis by Proxy Server Syndrome or PPPiSSed for short.

...Things like this just make me cringe...

Is it really worth publicly embarrassing yourself in front of all those people, and then having it posted to the internet?

You really didn't think that in an apple store, where everyone has a phone, that nobody is going to maybe video tape your tantrum? Just go home and chill out for awhile, then deal with it later in a calm manner...

But then again, psycho apple fans these days :|

Yeah I thought the same thing...if she does this in public how bad does her husband get it at home when he forgets to take out the trash.

Sad times when you would yell at someone over petty issues.
