Default What is wrong with kids these days?

I thought I had seen how bad some kids are these days, but this takes the cake. I would need a replacement child if one of the kids was mine. I'm sure some of you have seen this.

On the plus side, the internet has had it's way with it and has raised a rediculous amount of money for her to now retire on bascially. It started with a goal of $5000 over the next 30 days to give her a good vacation, but in the past 36 hours they have raised more than $219,000 and it continues to grow.

Someone to control the kids while they misbehave. The bus driver used to do it, but they learned that's not safe. I've seen some on board video shots, like a security camera, they need a bus monitor. More like a bouncer though, not a old lady.

I just wish there was at least a couple more days of school, so she could throw this back in their faces. Spoiled little brats.

The reason kids and people in general get away with treating people like this is because that lady can't react physically or someone like myself (super-human strength) can't beat the ---- out of those children. In this era of protectionism, the offending children are more protected by the law than that woman. I hope all those pathetic little bastards get beating within an inch of their life, then urinated on for sexual pleasure as adults so that I may mock them for their homosexual lifestyle.

These days, kids and idiots know that if they push me to the point of reacting, they can take me to court and win.

This is precisely why I cannot have children. If that were my kind I would "cross the line". What do you do when you find out your kid is treating people like this? How do you fix that type of behavior?

When I rode the bus if you acted up the bus driver pulled over and kicked you off. Do that now and they would be sued for child endangerment. This was back in the 70's, though.

You just don't let it get that bad in the first place.

Don't get me wrong - my kids (two girls, 2 and 5) aren't perfect, but they're very well behaved. We regularly get compliments from others about how our kids are minding their own business, saying please and thank you, etc. It all comes down to discipline.

I'm staying with a friend and his family right now. They barely discipline their daughters, who are the same age as mine. I bite my tongue every day. The eldest tries to boss everyone around her around and gets away with murder.

This.



With all the hype around this video, I expected a lot worse. Once those kids start drinking and screwing each other, they'll settle down.

I hate that "trolling" and memes have gone mainstream. It used to be one thing to just be an asshole, now dumb people think they're being all edgy and cool by being a dick.

I swear every fing time someone posts some ready-made meme photo on Facebook, the sweet Baby Jesus bumps the reckoning that much closer.

this "now" you're talking about... do you mean "since you were born"? because I'm thinking it goes back much further than that.
