Attention: Parents of the World
November 28, 2011 § 2 Comments
Parents, I know life is hard for you. Mothers, I particularly feel your pain. I understand the difficulties that being a parent entails. Someone once described the first two years of an infant’s life as “two years of shit and barf”.
It understand your pain. I do, I really do.
What I do not understand is how you will fight and scream and argue with your children so that they learn to share, to play nice, that hands are not for hitting and that bullies are not for being. Not that I do not understand why you do these things. Perhaps if someone had told Hitler or Stalin or Doctor Claw how to learn or share or not hit, so much pain could have been avoided.
No, what I do not understand is how you will do all these things,
and then leave my workplace a goddamned mess for me to clean up after your lazy asses.
Did I miss something? Because I was fairly certain that the old rule still applied, wherein the one who messed up said location, cleans up said location.
Or else you just want to teach your kids that hands are not for hitting, bullies are not for being, but cleaning up after yourself is for other people to do for you.
Das ist alle.
