If you haven't yet seen this suburban mom's viral rant about "bus stop moms," then you're missing out an on experience.

So, Nicole Walters went on a Facebook video rant about the "fancy" moms (her words) at her child's bust stop.
Nicole is a married mother of three, and she and her family have only recently moved to the affluent suburban neighborhood.
Her "rant" isn't vicious or heated as some of the "rant videos" that we've seen recently floating around the interwebs.
Instead, her video reads more like stand-up comedy, but set in the environment that she describes.
It's 8am, so she hasn't showered yet or dressed for the day. She sent her nanny to walk her child to the bus.
(The nanny bit might not be relatable to everyone, but pretty much everything else about this should resonate with anyone familiar with suburban living)
Sporting a shirt that reads: "Oprah Wasn't Built In A Day," Nicole tells you exactly what she thinks of the other neighborhood moms.
First, she's very direct and honest about her outfit.
She's wearing a bonnet, she hasn't showered (she has washed her face though, which is more than most of us do before showering).
She's wearing a loose-fitting, on brand tee shirt.
She also looks great, honestly. She really knows how to work a camera, and we don't just mean operate one.
The way that Nicole emotes throughout this video is pretty fantastic.
It was, you see, her 6-year-old's first day of kindergarten.
(Keep in mind that many kindergarten classes start two weeks later than fellow elementary schoolers)
And Nicole just could not bring herself to go out and deal with the other moms at the bus stop.

The bus stop moms are, you see, entirely too "fancy."
As she continues, you realize that it's not exactly the case that she's intimidated, though you'd understand it if someone did find these women intimidating.
Nicole singles out one neighborhood mom in particular.
"You don’t know how perfect she is. She’s so fancy. She’s so fancy. She’s skinny. She wears tennis clothes every day. Tennis clothes and a visor every day."
"Every day she wears that.”
Nicole says that this unnamed woman “is just so good at life. She’s just so good at life."
Rather than being intimidated, though, it seems clear that Nicole is annoyed by their superficial conversations.
She mocks the use of vocal fry in some of the other moms' voices, but mostly her teasing seems to be in good fun.
We'll be honest, actually turning the camera on one of the moms, even from that distance, seemed a little invasive to us, right?
The woman's not a public figure; she's just a mom seeing her kid off to school.
But we have no idea who she is and, quite frankly, this funny video is a gift and we're glad to have gotten to witness it.
