The fine folks at Yahoo just released a list of the ‚Äú25 Manners Every Kid Should Know by Age 9‚ÄĚ.¬† The list was actually put together by Doctor David Lowry, and, PhD or not, his list of manners is pretty basic.¬† That being said, just because the list is basic, doesn‚Äôt necessarily mean anyone is actually teaching their kids these manners.¬† Review the list foryourself:chances are, it brought back memories from childhood of your parents telling you to stop being rude.¬† Speaking of ‚Äėrude kids‚Äô, if you believe the fun- police at the Parents Television Council, it‚Äôs TV shows that are corrupting the sweet minds of today‚Äôs youth.¬† In fact, one member of the PTC, Barbara Warburton, says she willing to ‚Äúdo whatever it takes to prevent children from watching ‚Äėcorrupting‚Äô TV shows like ‚ÄėFamily Guy‚Äô‚ÄĚ.¬† Two things you should know about Barbara Warburton; #1, she admits that she‚Äôs never actually SEEN the show (but has read reviews, so, you know, there‚Äôs that) and #2, her son Patrick (a.k.a. ‚ÄėPuddy‚Äô, a.k.a. the Tick) is the voice of Joe Swanson, a character ON ‚ÄėFamily Guy‚Äô.¬† Yes, Babs knows this, but since her son is ‚Äúwilling to offend God‚ÄĚ (seriously, lady?) she‚Äôs hoping the show (she‚Äôs never seen) is cancelled.¬† Gotta love parents‚Ä¶ their influence, good or bad, never goes away.¬† That‚Äôs what we wanted to talk about today‚Ä¶ not the parents, but the kids:¬† WHAT DO YOU HATE ABOUT KIDS?
Before I had a kid, my short answer would have been ‚Äėeverything‚Äô.¬† Now, as a proud father, my answer is ALMOST everything.¬† Make no mistake, I love MY kid, just not yours.¬† I‚Äôm sure they‚Äôre OK, but like anything, I don‚Äôt want to know them.¬† By the way, I should state that I‚Äôm WELL aware that I‚Äôm a d*ck, but I‚Äôm just being honest.
Anyway, after hearing some of your answers today, I‚Äôm not the only d*ck out there:
Lack of gratefulness‚Ä¶ has two teens
They screw up all of your plans‚Ä¶ has 4 kids‚Ä¶ stop f**king your wife and you‚Äôll have more time
They cost too much, they smell, ask too many questions and talk too loud‚Ä¶ this from a proud parent
They become teenagers
Hates when kids tell him ‚Äúyou just don‚Äôt understand‚ÄĚ, as though he were born at age 30
Their sense of entitlement‚Ä¶ that‚Äôs not the kids fault, that‚Äôs entirely on the parents and all of this nonsense that no one is a loser, blah, blah, blah.¬† Guess what?¬† Some kids are losers, some kids suck and some kids are failures‚Ä¶ it‚Äôs just how life is, it‚Äôs OK.
Public temper tantrums
Their unwavering honesty‚Ä¶ actually, that‚Äôs the one thing I truly appreciate about kids; they‚Äôre not full of sh*t
Lack of respect for adults‚Ä¶ that can always be adjusted on the fly
The timing of their bathroom breaks sucks
Staring‚Ä¶ kids LOVE to stare‚Ä¶ kinda freaky, man.¬† They‚Äôre like little Satans
Manners at restaurants
Teens swearing in public‚Ä¶ I was guilty of that and still am
The high pitched scream of teenage girls
That‚Äôs all I‚Äôve got today, bitches.
Until tomorrow, walk softly and STAY BEAUTIFUL!‚ÄĚ
