MyRandomName: Is subby from the school of liberalism that teaches all work is bad or something? Chores are good for children.
hailin: I like how some of the comments on the Facebook picture are "But cooking is dangerous for a 10 year old!" Really? By 10 I was making roasts and soups unsupervised (yes I know, easy meals, but still legitimate cooking). I never cut myself with a knife or burned myself until I became a boozy adult. 10 year olds aren't incompetent. Quit coddling your kids.
robbiex0r: How is a 12 year old going to shop for groceries, even with a list?
d23: vudukungfu: Kids should be given chores and they can earn an allowance. this teaches them the value of work and wages before they can even get a job. Which is important.It's important in corporate-controlled world to learn how to do near-meaningless tasks for below minimum wage.
ChipNASA: Frecking Fark...my wife actually has this on the Fridge./4 year old and 11 month old...GET A JERB!!!
MelGoesOnTour: I seem to be often subjected to, when at the grocery store, the slowest people in front of me in the aisle's as well as when waiting in line. It's when in the aisle's that I often seem to be behind older folks who use their grocery carts as walkers, arms folded and leaning across the hand-rest. And they are slow. Naturally, I know this helps support them (especially the older folks) but it is a nuisance just the same mainly because these people are painfully slow. Slow as sloths for the most part. Add to that the fact that they generally push their carts in the middle of the aisle---rather than at the right/left sides as traffic should dictate---these people are veritable roadblocks. And annoying. I do my best to skirt around them but it's not always easy to do. More often than not I find myself having to backtrack the aisle to get to the next aisle; this, of course, puts a damper on my own shopping experience which typically involves alternating aisle/travel-direction.
