    What have we bred ?

    People often talk about the youth of today but I am more Inclined to think of the parents of those youths as the 'lost generation'.
    How can we really expect children to learn these days when this example Is set to them?

    My husband who Is a fair bit older than me, Is In his senior years and due to Illness relies now on a walking stick. He can't walk far as It Is.

    Today we were strolling along a High Street which was quite busy at the time at a snails pace heading toward a shop. Suddenly, an obese 40 something year old and a bloody ugly one at that Is right behind us. Before my husband had chance to move aside for her because she was obviously In a hurry, she screams at him and yes, she did scream as other shoppers turned around to look. She screamed 'OH GET OUT OF THE ********** WAY'.
    With her was what appeared to be her son aged around 13 years old who frankly looked embarassed.
    She went Into the shop so I went straight In after her and started with 'Who the hell do you think you are?' I'd only just finished that sentence when she started screaming her head off calling for security who when they arrived, she announced I was harrassing her.

    Typical bully In my book...Probably thought she could run her mouth off and then the minute she realised that someone was going to take her on backed off and cried help.

    But... what an example for her son to witness.

    I call this incident part of our "casual" society. Dress has gone casual; behavior has gone casual; conversations have gone casual; relationships have gone casual; parenting has gone casual. By "casual" I mean little or no effort goes into anything. This was started as a kind of revolution against rules, formality and tradition. Now it has deteriorated into situations like you and your husband experienced. This is just my opinion based on what I see going on in our world today.

    I saw all the comments screaming 'racist' ....but I have a feeling the woman is unwell. She seems to be in her own little world there. She's hardly noticing she has a child in her arms. Very silly of the other woman to take on that kind of human. I tend to (and have done) allow them to have a rant and then when they get off the bus have a bit of a giggle with other passengers ...anyway where's the security on that train?

    She had a bad day, and decided to ruin it for the rest of 'em, as well.

    You are right we not only have a casual society but also a very seflish one. Some people should never have had children and I think that society as a whole misses mum full time in the house or at least making sure that the children are well looked after and not being latch key kids!

    Re: What have we bred ?

    My nephew is like this now.. he told people to ******* Off when he was 4 or 5 maybe.. His mum has a foul mouth and he's just copied.

    Now my old school wasn't much better. I was to polite. Although i've always had a short fuse and yes also i do have a foul mouth at times when i'm really angry.. But anyway they told me at school i was to polite and therefor they would have to send me to a lower level at secondary school.

    I was there for a week.. the teachers looked at me and sent me up 2 levels..

    So really i was being punished for being polite.. What does that teach our youngsters?

    Your luck strongly resembles mine..in getting in trouble for someone elses wrong doing. My high street looks the same. I think the problem goes far deeper than hedonism, socialism and capitalism can explain. I think our own best natures are our own worst enemies. What makes people so inward looking and focused is mind boggling. The true question is what was so urgent that made that woman be so nasty for?
