Re: Have You Ever Faced Intolerance...

People keep forgetting the modified golden rule, "what you do unto others, is what will be done unto you".
The same parents who b*itch about or afraid of strangers helping their children would probably try to sue that same stranger, who may have avoided helping their child in an event that caused the child to be injured or killed.

The other day, I opened the door for a kid who did not respond, so I said "you're welcome", he did respond with a "thank you". His parents are probably the same ones who I saw at homedepot asking a customer (you or me) a question but didn't bother to thank that person either. The "me" generation is still alive and kicking.

When I was a young scruffy urchin of a kid I got the message that I was not welcome some places. It gave me a complex for quite a while.

Only about 10% true in my experience. If you are "nice" or helpful or just brusquely effcient and "give a guy a break" now and then... you're re a dupe-a-roonie if you think that illicits reciprocol behavior. They usuallly just take what they need then turn their backs.

Re: Have You Ever Faced Intolerance...

While on a ski day with my wife and kids--we were walking up some stairs to the lunch room (in ski boots) Some kid came sliding down the the railing and bumped into my wife...almost knocked her down the stairs-if I had not been right behind her-she would have fallen. The kid said nothing and started running off - I caught up to him and told him he was going to apoligize to my wife.......he said "f***you, what are you going to do - hit me? I'm a kid and if you touch me I sue you and get you put in jail". I was stunned, where do these kids get such a negative attitude...I did "accidently" knock him down while in line waiting for the chair lift--I did apologize profusly however .

Right answer: "No, i'm not going to hit you, but lets go find your daddy. If he doesnt tell you to apologize, I'll hit HIM instead for raising a kid thats an asshole".

Right answer but only if he has a daddy that cares, I'll bet if you found him he was just a bigger version of his son.

It is also incorporated into other words, such as Martha/Greg did here. As of now, board members have used this most versatile of words in every way I can think of. Congrats to all!!!
There is a word for everything (and, apparently, a Wikipedia article). In this case: tmesis.

Well see, thats where that second part of the statement comes in. You bop the dad, and not wanting to get randomly bopped anymore, he tells the kid to cut the crap. You get a two-fer!


This sort of multigenerational bad behavior comes into existence and is perpetuated because theres a lack of negative reinforcement. There is very little risk in being a butthead, or teaching your kids to be buttheads.

I *love* negative reinforcement of bad behavior!

Whenever I see a male with a ponytail I think the guy has some deepseated issues that need some serious intervention.

Re: Have You Ever Faced Intolerance...

Speaking of intolerance...I liked this article on being Childfree, especially the part about refusing to drink the baby-making Kool Aid...and the book I Hate Other People's Kids. Hilarious.

In age where it's all about baby, the childfree are fighting back
