The single mum sent a tirade of angry messages to a woman who taught free swimming lessons to children.
A swimming coach who teaches young kids for free has shared a flurry of spiteful messages she received from a desperate mum demanding lessons for her youngster.
She uploaded the shocking exchange on Reddit, and wrote: "I teach swimming to kids for free even though I was offered money.
"[The mum] demands that I have to teach her son exclusively. And to give her the money offered as I don't need it."
What followed was a cruel exchange of words.
First, the woman relentlessly hassled for an answer, barely giving the swim coach time to reply.
Then, despite explaining that she had already cancelled any swim sessions for the day and she wasn't up for teaching, the swim coach received even more demanding messages.
The mum refused to take no for an answer, and continued to demand that her son be taught privately due to anxiety issues.
Not willing to give up, the mum continued to pester the swim coach, and even started threatening to throw her son in the pool and blame the coach if 'something happened to him'.
After failing to receive a response, the viscous mum turned personal, calling the coach 'lousy' and a 'nasty horrible person'.
The exchange received over 7,000 comments from other Reddit users, with one writing: "Wow, I lost it when she was gonna throw the kid into the pool and then blame you if he drowns", whilst another posted: "She is rude!!"
Another commented: "what is wrong with people that they think this is acceptable?"
It is unclear whether the woman ended up teaching swimming lessons to the child in question.
