They seriously lack discipline
I was in high school so probably 16, and waking home from school one day. A group of boys is walking towards me, probably 10-12 in age. As we pass each other, one of the boys steps out in front of me, reaches out, and grabs me by the crotch, then jumps away laughing, his friends laughing with him.
I’m so startled I don’t do anything, but a few moments later my dad pulls up in our van, and right away he can tell I’m upset. I tell him why, he hits the gas and catches up to the group of boys. He peels up next to them, tire screeching and turns in front of them, kinda cutting them off. Hops out, corners them, and proceeds to lecture them about inappropriate behavior towards women until they cry.
My dad is 6’2″ and can be intimidating. He’s very intense and having his negative attention focused on you is not something you’d want. (sweetnesssa)
I was in a fitting room at a chain clothing store and this group of, say 10 kids, was running around the fitting rooms screaming and crying and two of the little boys CRAWLED UNDER MY DOOR AND STOOD IN THE FITTING ROOM WHILE I WAS NAKED. Saying terrible things that kids that age should not have known.
I’m usually pretty level headed, but I found the mother and absolutely went off on her. I typically would never, ever judge the way a mother raises her children, but that, that was absolutely unacceptable. She didn’t even care. (unicornglitterdust)
I was at a takeout place that served chicken and side dishes. There was a big glass screen like subway and all the food was behind it. As I was waiting to tell the lady what I wanted, there was a woman in front of me with a young kid maybe seven or eight.
This kid reached behind the glass and was shoving his hands into the food. The mother said nothing although she could clearly see this happening. The employee also said nothing, I assume because she was in her teens and didn’t want to fight with this lady. I was baffled. (debitum-naturae)
