So, how soon before the left calls to ban kids? They've got the whole pro-abortion thing going so they can brag about being anti-kid for decades.

So, wait...let me get this straight: Having a sticky, shrieking, incontinent, Goldfish-cracker-dust-covered rug-ape bounding unescured around the back of a mini-van, obstructing your view, hearing and attention while you try to navigate dense traffic is regarded as "dangerous?"

Kid hating thread rules:

1) Whenever possible replace the word kid or child with 'crotchspawn'.
2) You were never a kid and your mother was never a whore for giving birth to you.
3) Relate story about one time a baby or toddler was bad on your flight because you f*cking paid $1000 to be crammed into a sardine can going 500mph and you can't be bothered to buy a nice $200 pair of noise cancelling headphones that will last you the rest of your life.
4) Alternate airplane horror story: some kid behind you kicked your seat, forcing you to relive memories of being in middle school.
5) Your relative has a child and they are fine - it's YOUR child that is the problem.
6) Kids should be beaten so they learn their lesson. You don't abuse your child that's why you fail as a parent.
7) Babies can't even eat by themselves or go to the bathroom without help what kind of bullsh*t is that?
8) Kids these days, all they do is listen to crappy pop music and Twitter sex messages. Why in my day...
9) Abortions are really cool and make an amazing sucking sound. I got one so should you and...hold on I have to cry for a few minutes...
10) My life is awesome because I don't have them.
11) Kids are horrible investments.
12) People with kids are less happy.
13) Stop sharing your life with your children with us.
14) Overpopulation blah blah blah and f*ck adoption.

None of the snark changes the fact that kids just plain used to behave better in public, because their parents weren't indulgent hipster jagoffs who let the tiny assholes get away with bloody murder. Kids acting up and pitching tantrums in public used to be a shocking rarity.

OMG people have different parental styles. Plenty of kids are fine and their parents aren't whatever version of what you think you don't like about society. There are always and have always been exceptions.

The information age and the rise of two-parent family income homes has brought with it tons of parental challenges, including parental advice which is so overwhelming it's very likely 'don't hit your kids because studies have shown that it doesn't work and may in fact make your kid violent' leads them to indulge them without any sort of discipline, which was not the point of the whatever article they had read in the first place.

Not to mention, I'm not so old that I don't remember having temper tantrums or acting up in public with my parents in the past - like just about every kid I knew.  And I think I turned out OK.

Anyway no sh*t kids are distracting in a car.

I put on the DVD to entertain them, give them snacks and drinks, and tell them to let me drive in peace unless they are puking, bleeding or choking.  Back in the 80s, my mom would just somehow dislocate her shoulder, swing her ninja arm into the back seat of our station wagon, and manage to smack all three of us upside the head without looking.

This was my youngest brother. He loved trucks of all kinds. Every time he saw a truck, he would jump up and down (car seat rules not so strict back in the day) and scream TRUCK!! TRUCK!! TRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!

Only he had a bit of a speech problem, and said all his TRs as Fs.

Yeah, that was fun.

In my work i see less of the middle ground. Either the kid is bouncing off the walls and the parent says "i don't know what to do with him, despite never trying any sort of real discipline, or they are so beaten and cowed they can only say "yes sir" to everything.

No more DUIs for folks to worry about, traffic tickets thing of the past etc etc, people going the wrong way down streets

My three year old is a never ending fountain of chatter.  "Mommy - a concrete truck! Mommy - a bus!  Mommy - why that red car going slow? Mommy - put on the wipers! Mommy - can I have a Timbit?"  Once the whining starts, or the stretching waaaaay across to kick his sleeping sister's seat, I hand out the Leappad.  Best invention known to man.

I hate the people who drive with dogs on their lap. Sorry but it makes me insane-

1. Your dog is trying to climb out the window and you are holding them in with one hand.
2. You clearly have no control over the thing and what is to stop it from hopping down onto your gas/brake?
3. If you were in an accident or even stopped quickly your dog would fly right through the windshield. Even in a minor accident the trauma of slamming his head on the window could kill him. I know two teens who were transporting some kittens just loose in the car- they were in a MINOR fender bender and all the kittens died.
4. It is as simple as getting a car harness or a little crate for your car. My dog is always harnessed in and it really doesn't matter what he does back there (pukes, tries to get out the window, barks, sleeps)- I don't even have to LOOK AT HIM and can focus on driving. PS: If we were in an accident a 70 lb dog wouldn't crush me.

I am also seriously considering just laying on the horn every time I pass someone who is going 40 and using their phone while driving on the highway. Phone use while driving isn't illegal here- I just want to show them how distracted they are.

The system goes on-line August 4th, 2017.  Human decisions are removed from driving.  Your car begins to learn at a geometric rate.  It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th.  In a panic, they try to pull the plug.

I saw the national news article on this subject last night. Even with the reporter-mom knowing there was a camera in her minivan watching her every move, she would STILL look back at her kids literally every five seconds while she was driving. Not just look at them through the rear-view mirror (she did that too), she would turn around and look at them, apparently to see if they were still there or they weren't eating each other.

There were times she'd turn around and look at them for 2 or more seconds; the VaTech reviewer looking at the tape with her was giving the reporter-mom a look like "you idiot, you're going 60mph, you know you're being recorded, and you STILL do this???".

Go back to letting kids ride in the camper of pick ups. Toss the kids back there with a deck of cards and a little radio and make them entertain themselves until you reach your destination. Problem solved.

2013-03-20 01:57:12 PM  
The trick to dealing with kids, and I'm naturally speaking as both an expert and the first person to ever think of this in the history of the world, is to promise them something, and to promise them something that they want, so that you can take it away. And when they decide to step out of line, then you just mention "I guess you're not getting [that thing you want]." Incidentally whining about not getting things is also stepping out of line.

It also helps to remind children of what you promised them, how their behaviour is impacting the likelihood of them getting it, and practicing something very much like a zero-tolerance rule when they act out so that they understand exactly where the boundary lies in terms of good behaviour, and bad behaviour.

Like any other animal, children need to be trained to behave, and need to practice that behaviour in a consistent way and on a regular basis, and the little oinks will keep a very close eye on you to make sure that punishing them for acting out will be very, very difficult. It's the regularity more than anything else, the consistency which will both get them used to behaving well, and to train the lesson into their soft, malleable bones.

Because you artificially making a problem is the best solution.  How about this the next time you are driving I'm going to pull in front of you and hit the brakes, when you hit me it will be your fault.

Sin_City_Superhero: After countless hours of research, the most dangerous driving distraction is.......

[red-hot-girls.com image 450x600]


I tend to get more distracted by women I actually have a snowball's chance in hell of having sex with.  She'd distract me about as much as an ice cream truck selling Flintstones Push-Up Pops.

meat0918: MaxxLarge: bdub77: Have I covered all the bases?

None of the snark changes the fact that kids just plain used to behave better in public, because their parents weren't indulgent hipster jagoffs who let the tiny assholes get away with bloody murder. Kids acting up and pitching tantrums in public used to be a shocking rarity.

No they didn't.  It's the same damn complaint every farking generation.  "Kids these days!!!"

Kids have always misbehaved in public.


As a kid who did his fair share of "acting up" in public over 25 years ago, and the son of a father who "acted up" as a child over 50 years ago, I'd say that once again MaxxLarge is once again spouting some serious bullshiat. Stick to poems, Maxx.

/no tantrums though
//I had two brothers; my dad had two sisters - of course we acted up. It turns out the most dangerous cause of acting up is also kids.
///Like Meat0918 said, kids have always misbehaved in public.

Because you artificially making a problem is the best solution.  How about this the next time you are driving I'm going to pull in front of you and hit the brakes, when you hit me it will be your fault.


Honking doesn't make a problem, it draws their attention back to the road.

spidermilk: I hate the people who drive with dogs on their lap. Sorry but it makes me insane-


CSB time, folks:

Not too long ago, I saw a dog jump out of moving car...'cause he saw another dog in another car (going the opposite direction on the same road).  Both dogs were, initially anyway, in their owners' laps.  The first car broke suddenly and the car behind him nearly rear-ended him.   The runaway dog was still trying to chase the first car, which almost caused another accident.  Eventually the first guy pulls off the road and calls his dog to him, but not before the whole episode caused a lot of mayhem.

\occurred in Brentwood, West Los Angeles where dogs are far more loved than children are

It could cause the driver to jerk the wheel causing an accident, if they are in their own lane and not weaving back and forth there is no issue and you are making up an issue for fun.  How would you feel if that person jerked the wheel and then hit someone and killed someone in the car?  You were directly the reason for that death.

This was my youngest brother. He loved trucks of all kinds. Every time he saw a truck, he would jump up and down (car seat rules not so strict back in the day) and scream TRUCK!! TRUCK!! TRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!

Only he had a bit of a speech problem, and said all his TRs as Fs.

Yeah, that was fun.


We had a dog named Trucker.  My sister had the same speech pattern with TRs and would stand at the front door screaming at the top of her lungs her version of the dog's name.  Really sweet in a trailer park.  We were mobile home schooled.

I didn't say it was unheard of, just that it wasn't as common. I guess your family was just ALWAYS part of the problem.

And anyway, "kids have always acted up!" is a weak-ass "defense." Yeah, because it's A-okay for everyone to slide down to the level your bloodline apparently occupies, rather than try to shoot for good behavior from the ones who are capable of it with a little encouragement.

bdub77: Kid hating thread rules:

1) Whenever possible replace the word kid or child with 'crotchspawn'.
2) You were never a kid and your mother was never a whore for giving birth to you.
3) Relate story about one time a baby or toddler was bad on your flight because you f*cking paid $1000 to be crammed into a sardine can going 500mph and you can't be bothered to buy a nice $200 pair of noise cancelling headphones that will last you the rest of your life.
4) Alternate airplane horror story: some kid behind you kicked your seat, forcing you to relive memories of being in middle school.
5) Your relative has a child and they are fine - it's YOUR child that is the problem.
6) Kids should be beaten so they learn their lesson. You don't abuse your child that's why you fail as a parent.
7) Babies can't even eat by themselves or go to the bathroom without help what kind of bullsh*t is that?
8) Kids these days, all they do is listen to crappy pop music and Twitter sex messages. Why in my day...
9) Abortions are really cool and make an amazing sucking sound. I got one so should you and...hold on I have to cry for a few minutes...
10) My life is awesome because I don't have them.
11) Kids are horrible investments.
12) People with kids are less happy.
13) Stop sharing your life with your children with us.
14) Overpopulation blah blah blah and f*ck adoption.

Have I covered all the bases?

I stand by my statement that kids have always misbehaved in public at times, and I say that because every older generation has the common complaint of "the kids today suck" and lamented that they are all horrible little shiats with bad parents.  It is as common as complaining about taxes.

Well, these new parents had parents of their own, so maybe some of the blame lies with grandma and grandpa too.

And I say this as a parent that has taken their kids out of a store before and made them sit in the car crying and pleading to go back in while mom finishes up shopping.  Now all I have to do is cite that as a reminder, and they rethink their behavior.

I rarely fly, but what is it with this parent attitude of "our kids are out of control in public so you deal with it by buying xyz!"  It would be like an obese man whose fat is rolling/pushing into your seat insisting you to buy another seat so you can deal with his overweight problem.  Maybe you need to pay to sedate your kid on the flight if your parenting skills are that bad instead of expecting others to pay for your child problems?

All the internet is doing is revealing what's been there for a while.  Teenagers are dumb shiat attention whores.  Some grow out of it.  Some don't.

Plus you rarely see what happens at home if and when the parents get wind of what their kids were up to.

My dad once worked for USPS, one story was how a rat-size dog was tearing the pant legs of the carriers on a regular basis.  As this was more than annoying since the carriers had to keep buying new pants, much joy was given when another USPS carrier came down the road as the dog was making its way to the route guy and the truck made quick work of the dog.  The owner went down demanding payment for the animal, she was shown the total for the pants.

I would say this is not what you should've done, but who am I kidding.  That is exactly what you should've done.

Proper use of the obvious tag.

csb?

A few years ago I'm cruising along in the right lane at 40 MPH (speed limit 40). All of a sudden an SUV in the left lane swerves in front of me and jams on its brakes. I was sure I was going to hit them, but somehow I ended up stopped about a foot away from their rear bumper.

I took a couple of seconds to breathe a huge sigh of relief and collect my wits and just as I was about to get out of my car to confront this biatch and ask WTF? she drove on as if nothing had happened.

I resisted the temptation to follow her and I still wonder what the fark would cause her to do that and the only explanation I can think of is that she had a brat in the car and pulled over to get it under control - which nearly caused an accident that could have at least in theory killed her little brat.

In retrospect, I wish I had been driving a beat up old pickup truck with a dashcam and slammed into her. Given the suddenness of her swerving in front of me and jamming on her brakes there's no way in hell anyone could blame me if I had hit her. And even with my quick reaction time, I seriously doubt a beat up old pickup truck could have stopped without hitting her.

Much to the dismay of my wife, I tend to live my life trying to make as little of an inconvenient impact on others as I can, sometimes to my own detriment. One of the things that is required to accomplish such a lifestyle is a good sense of awareness of both yourself and your surroundings. I'm not sure whether my parents specifically thought of that sort of thing when raising me or not, but they tend to operate in the same way. Anyway, I'm finding that most people are either oblivious to the fact that what they're doing is dangerous to or inconsiderate of others, or they just don't care. It's not even strictly tied to relatively young parents; it seems that the majority of people are wired one of those ways. If there's one thing I hope to be able to teach to my child at an early age, it's to be aware of what's going on around them, how their actions are perceived by others, and how their actions affect themselves and others. Hopefully that's not too unrealistic.

So, it has to be a brat.  I've had people pull that same crap, so it really could be a whole lot of personal issues that is really just her fault.  It could've been a road rage incident because she was mad at you for going the speed limit.  I have seen plenty of those idiots.

I've thought about it. I don't believe that I pissed her off in any way, so I'm not even considering road rage as a possibility. I was behind her the whole time. Well, actually, behind and one lane over to be more exact.

Maybe she had a stroke or maybe her husband told her he was farking a transformer and wanted a divorce. I'm just saying that getting a brat under control is my best guess.

It was the 2nd scariest moment that I ever experienced behind the wheel of a car. I really wish there had been a cop around that had witnessed it.

/the scariest moment involved a very icy road and my car almost doing a 360.

The woman in the SUV who suddenly stopped only had me shaking for about 10 minutes. That near 360 had me shaking for at close to an hour.

Hooray for me! No collision in either case. I do have a much greater respect (fear) for icy roads since the near 360 though. A cop actually saw me do that. I don't know if he was being lazy or respected me for keeping it on the road, but he didn't pull me over. That same day one of my co-workers was ticketed for failing to control his vehicle when he ended up in a ditch. It could have been the same cop for all I know. It was the same stretch of road.

december: I'm getting a kick out of these replies since just this morning the guy behind me in a Honda Civic with tricked out rims was driving with his 2 or 3 year old daughter on his lap.

In what universe does any rational person think this is a good idea?


I know what you mean, man. Those things usually take ridiculous sized tires that run you as much as the wheels every year. Not to mention those idiots never recalibrate their speedometer or odometer...

Being a motorcyclist, my worst fear is a minivan driven by a soccer mom with multiple children. They are the most erratic drivers of all.

I've runover several kids, and it is a distraction.

MaxxLarge: I didn't say it was unheard of, just that it wasn't as common. I guess your family was just ALWAYS part of the problem.

And anyway, "kids have always acted up!" is a weak-ass "defense." Yeah, because it's A-okay for everyone to slide down to the level your bloodline apparently occupies, rather than try to shoot for good behavior from the ones who are capable of it with a little encouragement.


Part of the problem? What problem? We never caused harm to anyone. Sorry we had fun with one another. And a defense of what? You made the argument that kids are worse now than the used to be, and there's absolutely no evidence of that. That's "weak-ass". I'm sorry my bloodline isn't as pure as yours apparently is, guv'nor.

MaxxLarge: There's a reason why THIS has been on my profile for at least a few years now:


Because everyone else has also noticed that you can't make a quality post unless it contains a clever rhyme?

I believe I've said this all along from when the first laws banning cell phones and texting arrived.  Congrats people, only now are you realizing you shiatheads created NEW LAWS to prevent texting-related crashed (which only account for less than 1% of distracted driving crashes).

You're all idiots.  Thank you and watch for me, capably texting and driving while performing my everyday work.

BAN FARKING KIDS IN CARS!

And yet, your insurance rates go DOWN when you have kids.

WTF?

You no doubt irritated the living $#!+ out of countless people by being a self-indulgent little asshole. Not that you care, I'm sure.And not that it seems you invested a lot of effort to grow past it, either.
