well, after waiting a million hours, and practically being at a rolling stop by the time you get there, everyone does. if the first people to pass by would just keep on truckin, and everyone followed suit, it would never cause the mess it does. grrrr.

im not sure about that, as i wasnt an adult to really notice this 10-15 years ago. but i think it may be very true.

i have noticed this generation of young parents, is very "me" centered, and they also seem to suck ASS at saying no, and administering any kind of discipline. its really sad, as the kids suffer the most by having no real structured parenting to teach them how to behave in this world. then when it matters, like at a job interview, they are fucked.

guess what mrs/mr sitting at starbucks with your giant sunglasses and tight jeans, when your kid is flipping out, doing the following.

1. nothing

2. saying in your sugar sweet no kid left behind voice, "sweetie pie, use your indoor voice now, please quiet down so the nice man can read." and then going back to your extra grande mocha latte whatever.

doesnt do shit.

step 1, get your head out of your self centered ass.

step 2, be proactive and firm in telling your kid what they are doing is not ok.

step 3, give a warning.

step 4, if not heeded, pick up and head out. unmet threats teach your kids you are a pussy. but follow through a few times and they learn to behave right quick.

also, sometimes your kid is in a no good mood, and just needs to be home, not out and about. you gotta give a little of yourself to be a parent.

Socrates.

old news. i think good parenting comes and goes generationally. he was likely in a generation that was shitty at parenting.

also, he kinda strikes me as a bitch. maybe he was just being a bitch when he wrote that.

+1 to this, but I think shitty parenting transcends generations. The whole overly indulgent parenting thing goes back at least 30 years, if not longer. I much prefer the benign neglect approach taken by my parents' generation.

Just had a shitty ass plane ride back from richmond. Flight was delayed, on one of my least favorite planes, and a majority of the seats were taken by what I imagine were 12-14 year olds with maybe 2 chaperones....and then we had to sit on the tarmac for a long time waiting for our gate to open up when we landed.
Kids were fucking singing songs, one kid was raising and slamming down his two armrests like drums to his headpnoes (which made vibrations I could feel in my seat from across the aisle and up a row), and the girls behind me were freaked out and couldn't figure out why the plane was flying over water on its approach to chicago and nobody within earshot knew why either (they briefly thought it might be the great lakes but then realized that that wasn't possible).
Thank god I always fly with earplugs which at least numbs the sound.
Then I had a fricking scary cab ride home. Super old dude was driving down I90 in between two lanes and had no clue even when somebody was laying on the horn at him and on several other occasions was drifting in and out of lanes. Twice during the $30 ride, he took a pill out of a prescription bottle...
I had to call 311 and report him but I felt pretty bad about it. He was one of the few independent cabbies in the city, mentioned that he had just bought this new vehicle, and seemed like a nice old man. But still, it had to be done as he probably shouldn't be driving any vehicle, let alone doing it professionally. At least as an owner-operated, if they at some point tell him he can't drive anymore, the last few taxi medallions sold in the city went for $325k+ which has got to be a lot of appreciation over whatever he paid for it...so he will do alright there.

Sorry to hear about your brother, Piob.

Flight home today was filled with little children. I did not get to sleep at all.

Every time I see parents with little kids/babies waiting at the same gate as me, my heart sinks.
