Why I aughta...

The world is crumbling?
Kids today are so terrible?
They're damned ingrates?
We were never like that, were we?
We appreciated all we had?


These guys had it made compared to my upbringing!

"What is happening to our young people? They disrespect their elders, they disobey their parents. They ignore the law. They riot in the streets inflamed with wild notions. Their morals are decaying. What is to become of them?"  - Plato, 400 bc

"I see no hope for the future of our people if they are dependent on frivolous youth of today, for certainly all youth are reckless beyond words... When I was young, we were taught to be discreet and respectful of elders, but the present youth are exceedingly wise [disrespectful] and impatient of restraint" - Hersoid, 800 bc


It seems young folks being a pain in the ass is nothing new. I know they're frustrating. But usually, I find it is mostly me, forgetting what it was like being a kid myself :-)

Still, if that boy of mine doesn't straighten up, I'm gonna clobber him good !

I am definitely not ready for kids. The thought of my own child talking back to me or telling me to fuck off makes me want to superglue my legs shut for life.

Oh and btw, I nominated you for an award ! Spread the love !

Well, my children are PERFECT. One is 24, and if he does anything imperfect, I never hear about it, and the other is a dog. :-)

LOL @ SeƱorita's and FB's comments. It's kind of late for me to superglue my legs shut, so I do my best to keep my kids in line...which is not easy when you also have to let them live and learn from their own mistakes.

I swear my kids should work for the NSA - they hear everything I don't want them to hear!

"Somebody gonna get a hurt real bad"
Hahahahahaha!!

That was too funny. Thank you, Sir.

I don't think anything that drastic is needed, Senorita ;-)

Thanks for the award.

See now that is why I don't have kids. I can watch all those heathens with detached disdain and not have to go home to my own :)

Plus, babies are great until they need changed..or fed..or bathed..or they cry. Then it is time for their mommy and daddy to take them back.

Monty Python has to be one of my very favorites, love, love, love them!

For someone who managed to get herself in every kind of trouble imaginable, when it comes to my own children, I came out smelling like a rose. Whew!

I tried selling my two Feckers on eBay but maybe I should have just given them a passport....

That exemplifies that nothing is new with people's attitudes.
