Am I the only crazy one?
We went to the Penn State blue and white (inter team scrimmage) game over the weekend. It started out with an autograph session. I literally had to push people off my daughter as they were pushing her into the metal railing to get an autograph. That ticked me off. Getting hit in the back by a grown adult male really pushed the limits. I'm covered with bruises from it. All this for men to get an autograph?
Then the game started. Parents let their little darlings stand in front where only people in wheelchairs should be. I tried to be nice and tell them to sit down if they had to be there. Finally, one mother flipped out on me. How DARE I talk to her child? Ummmm ...... How dare she allow her precious to be so rude and inconsiderate? My two children sat beside me the entire game. They know better than to stand in front of people. Then that same shining example of motherhood riled up the entire section and had them send their kids to stand in front of me. Ohhhh, they sure showed me!
Am I the only person in the world who believes children should be taught simple manners? One father even threatened me (he was massive, I'm 5'2" and petite) that I better not even look at his daughter. SIGH!
Teaching children that the world revolves around them doesn't do them justice. One day, mommy won't be there to fight for them and they'll get the snot kicked out of them for thinking the world owes them because they're "special."
Sorry for the rant, it just really bothers me.
