Eh. The beginning with the biatch on the phone was funny because it's relatable.

Yep

It would be nice if parents also taught their children that a supermarket isn't a giant playground. It's bad enough that they run rampant through the store, bumping into people, but it's even worse if the kids are wearing Heelys. I figure it's just a matter of time before one of the little brats knocks down an elderly person, causing them to break a hip.

Funny.  The Heely craze has come and gone and I don't recall seeing a single story where that happened ever.  Maybe they should get off your lawn, too?

My kid is still on the floor refusing to say sorry.  Maybe I should just have the cops arrest him.

I'd be waving at that biatch with a huge smile on my face while she got dragged away by the five-oh. None of this "I don't want to press charges" nonsense.

Maybe the craze has gone, but there are still kids in my area that wear Heelys. And some of them are with their parents at the Eugene Winco.

Not insult, assault. Any physical force including that bump could be an attack. We only have the perp's word it was an accident, and that kid could be scarred!

Contrast that with most older mature stable societies where manners and public behavior still have cultureal value.

I've got sympathy for kids and parents, but holy crap if your kids are running around and you aren't keeping track of them, give other people the benefit of the doubt if something happens to your kid.

Last year a little girl, maybe five, ran right into the front of my shopping cart.  I wasn't moving - I was stopped looking at the coffee selection and she rounded the corner from the main aisle and ran right the fark into my cart at full speed for a five year-old.  She thunked pretty good against it, too.

So I did what you do when a little kid is hurt, I ran over to check on her and the minute I squatted down she started wailing, as kids do once the shock of the initial injury has worn off and someone is checking on them.  She had a pretty good mark on her head, but I kept my space and kept asking her "are you OK?" until her mother finally showed up a full minute later, presumably because she was a few aisles away and it took her a few seconds to realize it was her child screaming.  At that point a minor crowd had formed and I was just about to ask someone to find a store manager because obviously I didn't know what to do with a random injured child bawling in the aisle.

Her mother snapped her up, yelled (at me) "WHAT DID YOU DO?" and inspected her girl's forehead, which was already starting to swell.  I started to explain she had just run into my cart and I got a "Whatever, you're lucky my husband isn't here!" and she stomped off with the girl.  WTF?!!

This wasn't even Wal-Mart.  It was Harris Teeter at 7pm on a weekday.  I did get a random sympathetic "what a biatch!" from a woman who was in the crowd, but FFS it's one thing to lose track of your child and have them get hurt, it's quite another to blame a total stranger for it.

csb time

I think I've shared this on fark before, but it's appropriate.  I was in a grocery store with my wife, and it was packed with douchebags.  One kid in particular was really killing me.  He was zipping around everywhere, barely not running into people, etc.  He was old enough to know better.  Later, my wife and I were in a checkout line and ahead of us was a guy that started up a conversation with us.  I generally don't like an extended conversations with strangers, but we were politely going along.  Then the guy makes a hand gesture, and this dumb farking kid that's been zipping around the store runs smack dab into it.  The guy was nice and said "Oh I'm sorry!  Are you okay??"  The kid gave an evil look and sulked off quickly.  My wife (teacher voice) said to the kid "Excuse me, did you say you're sorry??"  I know it sounds stupid, but I felt like the universe was a little more in order for that having happened.

Kids who throw tantrums in a store are first off a sign of weak, manipulated or uncaring parents.  Proper parenting teaches kids how to behave in your house, in someone else's house, in your house of worship, in a restaurant, on a playground, and at commercial venues. As a START.

Because you are supposed to cart when they are very small, you need to repeat these lessons until they stick, and you need consistent, CONSISTENT rules and consequences.

It's embarrassing and inconvenient to "parent" in public,  and Louis really gets that across; that this is a job, a hard job that many people would just as soon run away from. And you see what happens if they do: the kids become little farking monsters run amok, making everyone miserable. All because the parent isn;t doing their job properly, or at all.

I think in my case, (we use the Phelan 1,2,3 Magic method),  if they get to "three", I abandon the shopping, scrape the kid off the floor and haul their ass out to the car, where they get a good yelling-at, plus whatever other consequences have already been established.  They also get lectured pretty much the entire rest of the day.
At that point, disciplining the kid becomes more important than doing that shopping.

Working with young children, the accident excuse has always baffled me. If I intend to do harm to a person, I will not apologize afterwards. If I did not mean to do something untoward, then I will apologize because I am actually apologetic. And when I hear the insincere apology, I make them restate what the apology is about and why this is being said. Children have all of the respect you teach them.

When my older daughter was around eight we went on a five hour car ride to visit relatives. The whole way there she repeatedly asked "Are we there yet? How much longer? When are we going to get there?" Hilarious, huh? Little smartass. Coming back it was the same thing. When we were about fifteen minutes from home she asked "When are we going to get there?" I said "Give me your hand " (my wife was driving, by the way) and like a fool she gave it to me. I gave her a hearty thwack on the wrist and said "When that stops hurting, we'll be home." She sat in the back saying "Ow, ow, ow ,ow, ow" for the remainder of the ride, but she never tried that stunt again. About the only other time I can think of that I hit her she was maybe two and kept trying to stick her finger into an electric socket. After umpteen "no's" and finger wavings I gave her a good potch im tochus  to drive the message home. Of course, once she turned sixteen all bets were off. She was giving me lip one day and I reached out and lightly slapped her in the face. She said "You can't do that!" and I said "Why not? You're a young adult now, it isn't child abuse."

My younger daughter is a saint and has never given me cause to raise my hand against her.

Never believed in the counting method.  I ask once -- if there isn't immediate response, they lose their most loved possessions.  Once every 6 months to a year, one of the kids will test to see if this form of punishment is still in force.  It always is -- then a minimum of 6 months of no problems.  Makes my job easier.

Am I the only one who would have liked to run over everyone in this video with a steamroller?

/would not be sorry, either
//life lesson should've been "Hey kids, she didn't apologize because some people don't behave right.  Sure it's unfair, but fair is where pigs go to win blue ribbons."
///better life lesson to learn than "You owe me [fill in the blank]."

Maybe it's generational:  I was that kid's age in the 70's - but if I'd tried any of that shiat in public...

Mom - We'd have left the store and my ass would have been spanked so hard sitting would have been an unreachable dream for at least a week.  You just, as a kid, knew your place, and your place wasn't acting like a damned fool in public.

Dad - Would have said "You'd better put more effort into that:  Your punishment is going to be way more severe than the crime, so you may as well put something else into it and enjoy it, because you WILL regret acting like this in public when we get home.'  That would get him one final wail, and silence:  The man never laid a hand on me that I can remember - but he certainly made it clear he wasn't the least bit afraid to:  Lucky for him, I had a fear of my parents being mad at me from an early age.

But this was awesome, and way less comedy than I'm used to getting from him.  Louie comes back tomorrow night:  Can't wait!!!!!

The kids that zoom around Winco on Heelys are never near their mother. She goes off shopping and lets them run riot in the store, even though I know for a fact that the manager has spoken to her at least twice that I witnessed and she gave him attitude both times and was upset that the store employees expected her to keep her brats under control

Jesus Christ you people. Sense of humor, grow one. My daughter and I get along fine. She's a smartass, like me and this kind of back and forth has gone on between us for the past 25 years. Ah, but why do I bother? You guys are obviously part of the humorless PC brigade, the people who ruin a seven year old's life when he kisses a girl in class or brings a squirtgun to school. You're just as bad as the right wing moralizers, you just have a different bug up your ass.

humorless?  Was that statement about backhanding your daughter a joke?  If so, ok... maybe I'm a bit dry when it comes to domestic abuse issues.

Its not about your relationship; glad to hear you get along well.  And maybe there is additional context missing.  But, as a rule of thumb, men should not hit women, barring extreme self defense cases. There really is no reason to resort to violence.  It will only teach your daughters that its OK for someone to wail on them.

As I said, same size bug up the ass as the bible thumpers, just a different species. I roughhouse with both my kids, always have. Oops, I shouldn't have told you that, now you're going to call it sexual harassment.

Make up your farking mind, are women equals with men who can both take it and dish it out, or are they delicate flowers who must be protected at all costs from harsh reality? Because for people who pride themselves on thinking the former, you sure come off a lot as the latter.

She was giving me lip one day and I reached out and lightly slapped her in the face. She said "You can't do that!" and I said "Why not? You're a young adult now, it isn't child abuse."

My younger daughter is a saint and has never given me cause to raise my hand against her.

All your doing is teacher your daughter that its OK for a man to hit her.  Period.  End of sentence.

If you're cool with that, then keep on being smug in your parenting.

/It is never OK for a man to hit a woman


WRONG!  It is okay for a man to hit a woman if the woman hits him first; insomuch as it's okay for anyone to hit anyone that is.  If someone is aggressively trying to injure you, it doesn't matter what they look like or what type of person they are.  You are fully cleared to use any force necessary to make them stop doing it.

There are plenty of women in this world who think they can do whatever the fark they want to a man because "they're a woman".  Yeah...okay.  If you really believe that, then maybe you should take Schlafly's advice that women shouldn't mind taking less pay than men.

Bf+: clambam: SmellsLikePoo: humorless?  Was that statement about backhanding your daughter a joke?  If so, ok... maybe I'm a bit dry when it comes to domestic abuse issues.

Its not about your relationship; glad to hear you get along well.  And maybe there is additional context missing.  But, as a rule of thumb, men should not hit women, barring extreme self defense cases. There really is no reason to resort to violence.  It will only teach your daughters that its OK for someone to wail on them.


As I said, same size bug up the ass as the bible thumpers, just a different species. I roughhouse with both my kids, always have. Oops, I shouldn't have told you that, now you're going to call it sexual harassment.

Make up your farking mind, are women equals with men who can both take it and dish it out, or are they delicate flowers who must be protected at all costs from harsh reality? Because for people who pride themselves on thinking the former, you sure come off a lot as the latter.

you seem nice


I am a nice guy. Both my kids are intelligent, self-reliant, self-assured and (so far) successful. My older daughter has a degree in philosophy and has a responsible and (for a philosophy major) well-paying job with a major philanthropy. My younger daughter is about to graduate from college with a degree in sociology and is planning on pursuing a graduate degree in early childhood development. I'm proud of them both. in certain respects I coddled them when they were young, but I teased them too, and they teased me (my younger daughter once asked me if I was sad when the dinosaurs died). I trust them both implicitly. They can both take care of themselves.

Can yours?

Any Pie Left: Kids who throw tantrums in a store are first off a sign of weak, manipulated or uncaring parents.


Not necessarily. Every kid throws a tantrum at some point, no matter how dilligent a parent might be. It's part of the process; otherwise, kids would just grow up perfect little angels and never give anyone problems. Kids can't know what the boundaries are without testing them.

It's just that sometimes these boundaries are pushed at inoportune moments. What you are seeing in that store/restaurant/whatever is like 0.01% of that parent in action.

Imagine how inopportune those must be to all the people who DON'T have the responsibility of teaching that child proper boundaries...

Sure, but all I'm saying is, you can do everything right as a parent (or as much right as can be expected at least), and Junior may still scream bloody murder in the middle of Target because you won't buy him a Transformer.

SmellsLikePoo: clambam: When my older daughter was around eight we went on a five hour car ride to visit relatives. The whole way there she repeatedly asked "Are we there yet? How much longer? When are we going to get there?" Hilarious, huh? Little smartass. Coming back it was the same thing. When we were about fifteen minutes from home she asked "When are we going to get there?" I said "Give me your hand " (my wife was driving, by the way) and like a fool she gave it to me. I gave her a hearty thwack on the wrist and said "When that stops hurting, we'll be home." She sat in the back saying "Ow, ow, ow ,ow, ow" for the remainder of the ride, but she never tried that stunt again. About the only other time I can think of that I hit her she was maybe two and kept trying to stick her finger into an electric socket. After umpteen "no's" and finger wavings I gave her a good potch im tochus  to drive the message home. Of course, once she turned sixteen all bets were off.

There are plenty of times where it is ok for a man to hit a women. It is called context.

Glad it worked out in spite of your shiatty parenting. Yes I'm a parent, no I don't hit my kids, because I can use my words.
