I just can't help but vent. Lately this blog has become more of a forum for my venting, it used to be funny. I'm sorry about that. So I'm at the Botanic Garden per previous blog and there are school trips there. I'm not making up what happened:
Teacher and/or Parent: "Get back in this line or I'm going to beat your (explitive!)."
Now, lest there be any doubt. This was not uttered in a fun, funny or charming context.
a) Who talks to a child like this? And once again, if this is in public, what on earth goes on behind closed doors?
b) If this was a teacher, lord help us all. Can you imagine? I can't.
c) If this was a parent being a chaperone, well, then I feel so sorry for the child. Discipline and disrespect are two different things. Know the difference.
People think I'm a goodie-goodie because I'm not a curser. I don't make a habit of cursing because I just think it breeds being disrespectful to your fellow man (plus, my mom always said it was so white trash). And cursing is like drugs, the more you do it, the more desensitized you are to its affects and then you may let something slip to your child or worse, not even realize you are cursing in front of the child. No doubt this woman's parents spoke to her in this demeaning way. Now the child will have a strong disposition to speak this way to her children and so forth.
So overall bad ju-ju at the Botanic Garden today!
