The Underparented Child Goes To Starbucks
This little girl in the photo has just finished a screaming tantrum on the floor: "Mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy! Waaaaaaah! Waaaaah! Etcetera." (Mommy is busy talking to her friend, it seems.) The rest of us are busy having our ears blown out. Unfortunately, while it takes a license to cut hair, it takes only working ovaries to have a child.

Here's a little peek into the little darling's future -- and ours: a great piece by Seinfield writer/producer Peter Mehlman, from the LA Times Opinion page, on a couple who talked nonstop during a movie.

Not surprisingly, the little bitch is four-legged.

no doubt the kid's a brat, but don't call the baby a bitch- she's young, she doesn't know better. the mom though, call her whatever you want, she has no excuse.

This little kid is not presently at fault.
10 years from now you can start blaming the kid herself. Eventually we need to take charge of our own behavior, no matter what our upbrining was.

But little kids?
Point at the parent.

Lia --

Would you be more comfortable with "bitch-in-training"?

PS: lighten up, bitch!

I really hate people who think the whole world has to babysit their kids; and God forbid you tell the little brat to shut up!

They don't listen when you tell them to shut up. Try a vat of boiling oil next time. (But be sure to roll them in bread crumbs first!)

Damn Lena-
You've got a little Witch from Hansel and Gretal thing going on.

P.S. I'm light personified bitch ^.~
