People Suck

I work for a cell phone carrier in a retail store and its amazing the way customers will treat u! They get upset because they dropped their phone in a swimming pool , and you can't replace it for free so they stand there yelling at you, calling you names, etc it's absurd! It seems to be even worse with children these days. When I was little, if I talked back or acted snotty, i got smacked and put in my place. The other day I was in Walmart and a teenage girl was acting like a whiney little brat because she wanted something. Her mother told her no and the girl started swearing and calling her mom names. My mom would have flat smacked me and left me standing there. lol Somtimes I think this world is just in a downward spiral because of rude people.

People who wont let you exit an elevator before they try to get on. I mean where are we suppose to go. Climb the walls of the life? I find this really rude.

It seems to be a feature of every generation that their predecessors don't think highly of them. Reading that story, it's easy to see why.<br />
But, just to give you all hope for the future of society, I'm a respectful kid. <br />
*gasps from the assembled audience*<br />
Don't worry. We'll turn out okay.

some ppl always wants sumin for free

I agree, people on a whole are ruder these days. It's as if with the advance of technology and time we have lost the gene that caused prior generations to have control over negative comments and actions. Now, we see more and more often people who are angry, smart mouthed and downright disrespectful feeling as if the world owes them and not the other way around.

I dont get it...I think they think its funny to raise their children that way.

Wow that poor little girl. She's already doomed to be a sl*t. I agree. WTF is wrong with that mother???

I do agree that you dont always have to spank to get your point across but there are somethings that I will not tolerate. And yes I am a wonderful Mom. I believe in positive reenforcement. My daughter is healthy and strong she also knows that she will not disrespect me or her elders. I guess I am old fashion in that sense. Respect is learned behaviour and not all children or parents realize that. I have done it all. I have dropped to eye level spoken with my daughter calmnly and clearly then she will get spanked. I let her know that I still love her but disrespect will not be tolerated in my home. (this is the only time she gets spanked everything else is time out and thinking chair) Positive re-enforcement. What I refuse to do is raise a brat. Let me tell you... what is up with parents allowing their children to run all over them? What is up with children calling their mother's ***res and ***ches. I have seen these behaviours in children as early as 2 years old. This will not be toleranted in my home. Parents another things stop dressing your daughter's like they are women. This is why they demand all the negative attention Sorry venting. I seen a lil girl no older than 5 on the bus today with her mom. She had a shirt that read...If you think I am sexy you should see my mother...&&&ch...WTF is that to be putting on a child. I just don't get parents these days.

I got spanked as a child and I don't think there's anything wrong with it. I think it's wrong to use a belt to hit your kids, but nothing is wrong with a good old fashioned spanking.

Windy I am not saying to abuse your child, what I am saying is that too many people allow there children to be disrespectful and do not teach them the value of humility. Mind you my daughter is only 5. Positive reinforcement does not always work with every child. I think spanking and abuse are two different things.

What most people don't understand is that you don't need to be whipping a child in order to discipline them ... <br />
<br />
The secret in proper discipline lies in respect ... sometimes it is easy for parents to disrespect children, making it easy for children to disrespect parents ... <br />
<br />
You teach through your actions.

Good for you MiseducatedChik, a pity more parents did no feel that way.

I am sorry, but there is no way I am going to allow my daughter to disrespect anyone like that including me. She would seriously get her tail whooped in the store. Then she would be reminded in the car that we don't speak to people that way and she would be punished. The problem today is too many people are scared to discpline there children.

Children nowadays do not seem to have respect for anyone, and parents have no power to punish them. It worries me to think that todays kids will be bringing up a future generation one day.

i agree with seem to get away with so much these days. parent seem to be afraid to parent for fear their kids will say they're being abused.<br />
