OK. This makes me feel like a curmudgeon, but a kid about
12 came zooming by my house today sitting on a motorized skateboard. The profile was about 2' tall and I shudder to think I may come around a corner on the way home from the grocery store and flatten the thing, thus creating a sailkid. This would be very upsetting. Am I being unreasonable in thinking this should not happen on a residential street? Any horror stories of crazy parenting and/or empathy would soothe my impending cranky fuddiduddiness.

1. I saw this asshole the other day in the TJ's parking lot...
zipping around on a skateboard FAST, and he went RIGHT BEHIND this woman who was backing up a big pickup truck with a camper shell. He almost hit her, swerved, hit a curb, and fell off the skateboard. The woman saw him and hit the brakes, but damn.

Idiot. x(

9. Did you yell at him to get off your lawn?
Did you at any point think or say: "Kids these days!", "When I was your age..." or "When I was your age..."?

8. Then I must spank you
:spank:

I do not know when this spanking will actually manifest itself in this time stream, but at some point you will be properly disciplined.

Or maybe you were already.

:shrug:

:rofl:

4. Yes I thought all of those things and more...
The point is I thought someone might get hurt and I was cursing the parents also. But I am mourning my lack of coolosity while simultaneously shaking my fist. I think he tried to run over my kitty.
Yes, I know, what the hell was my kitty doing outside in the big ugly world! Being a kitty. Stupid kid/future person who will irritate me. I,I,Me,Me AAAAH
