Saturday Morning thoughts

Update:  just had a mother call advising that she needs a cop come and talk to her 10 year old daughter..who was throwing a fit..she kicked her in the chest and called her an f-ing retard.  Mom wants the kid to know what could happen to her…uh huh

 

 

 

For the most part, I like to work early days on the weekend. (7-3).  It’s just me.  Lots of time to read up on events from the night, the newspapers, the Huffington Post and I get to answer all of the calls received until 10am.  For a while, I’ve been pondering what in the H my generation and the one below me has done to our kids.  I always laugh when I received “forwards” about how we survived the days of riding our bikes in the street without helmets, riding in the back window of the fast back cars like the 65 Chevy Impala, being the early generation of latchkey kids.  I”ve told this story before that my dad had a little 20 gauge Baretta…cutest little handgun…when I was a little kid, he taught me to load it and to shoot it (Holy crap – I hope you all are okay reading this – I survived this).  I came home from school one day and the inner door to the house off of the closed garage was open…I was scared…very scared…but I quietly snuck into my folks bedroom, got the gun out of my dad’s bedside drawer and cleared the house including the basement.  I actually didn’t give it a second thought – this was what I had to do..I would guess I was somewhere 10-12.  My mother was afraid of everything- especially illness and dying…perhaps this is what caused me to have big kahunas…someone had to.  This brings me to the question… shouldn’t a mother want her children to grow up unafraid, to want to soar like a bird, to go for it, to ask for help when needed but don’t expect someone to solve their problems.  That is not societal standards these days for raising kids…

Just as an example…do you know how many times a parent calls the police to come talk to their kids to scare them into behaving, going to bed, etc.  WHAT?  Why in the H would you want your kids to be scared of the police..where is your self respect that you call someone else to raise your kids…The mother who called this morning to tell me there was a dog running loose…she was breathless and near hysteria because she didn’t want the dog to bite her kids because her young daughter said yes…one time this dog came up to her and acted like it was going to bite her.  Understand what I’m saying here…yes…the dog could have bitten her and yes this could have been tragic – but just as well, she is scaring the H out of this kid.  Oh my goodnes, kids are skateboarding n the street, oh my goodness the neighbor is doing this or the neighbor is doing that…oh my exhusband is driving without insurance…oh my goodness, why can’t you go into their house and see if they are smoking MJ because I know that they are breaking the law…can you imagine how these people would be screaming if the police suddenly went into their house with an unlawful search and seizure…oh my goodness, I smell chemicals – its a bbq grill, ma’m.  I realize all of our Neighborhood Watch programs are making people paranoid…they were a good idea and still are until the horrible paranoia sets in and people are keeping their blinds shut with just a peep hole.  We are a society of whining pansy asses who can’t handle responsibility for ourselves, let alone for children that we bring into this world….and sometimes we bring these children into this world because we have the mentality of Christine O-Donnell who told the world a few years ago on Bill Maher that condoms just don’t work.  I’m just disgusted…and don’t be critical of me…these are the moronic situations I deal with every day…if you don’t work with the public…you don’t know!

Until next time…

  1.  I saw a 5 year old bouncing a ball against the large freezer units in the grocery store.  I asked Craig is it just me or is that totally wrong. You can that kid is never told no.  Mom lets him do whatever and people were trying to get through the aisle with no help from her. Parents really need to step up.As for the calling the police to straighten a kid up, that is ridiculous.  Lots of dumb ass parents out there.

  2. Parents are not used to disciplining the kids, but instead seem to expect teachers and/or the police to do it for them.  And I see it every day, the little kid walking all over the obedient parent, and I want to ask the parents if they have any idea what tthat child will be like when they get just a little older and just a little bigger?  It’s scary and stupid and senseless.  Unfortunately, I think that anyone who works with the public for any length of time will ultimately come to despise them.  Not that everyone is that way, you know, but those are the ones that you have to work with, so that it SEEMS as if everyone else is like that.

  3.  Great post! You made alot of good points.I was thinking just today, we can”t even wish someone a happy halloween, happy birthday, happy anything without following it up with a “Stay safe!” Idk why that annoys me, but it makes me want to say “no, I’m going to go bungee jumping or something”  Because what does that mean? don’t do anything? Just sit on the couch so you’ll be safe? Cuz that could cause a bloodclot, so how safe is that?  Everything can not always be safe…soccer is fun, but how long until “they” outlaw heading the ball?  Idk, I just want my kids to have some fun in life, not sit around worrying about what “might” happen if this and if that…. I know this comment is ridiculous, you just kinda touched on some things that really bug me….

  4. I have to believe the larger percentage of people are smarter, calmer and just generally more well behaved.  And I think I can prove this.  If you add up all the people in the county who could call into your line and then you figure out what percentage actually do call in I bet you’ll find it’s a very small percentage.  Sadly you are stuck dealing with that tiny minority of dumb asses!Good Luck.
