WEST JORDAN, UT -- "This kid is rude and ungovernable! I do not want him in my house at all!"

That's the note cops in Utah say a mom left with her 8-year-old son when she dropped him off at a local hospital and took off.

We know kids can be a handful, but dang!

"I don't think I'm necessarily a bad mother. I got more like overwhelmed," the mom, who is not being identified, told KSTU. "He was calling me names, he was calling me the B word, he was pulling his pants down in public."

Well, cops aren't moved by her pity party. She's charged with child abandonment and child abuse. If convicted, mom faces up to six years in prison.
