Just a note to all you parents out there -- do the world a favor and try disciplining your kids.

I had a youth soccer team this morning/afternoon. Some of the kids were fine, but others were knocking stuff off shelves, shoving counters and generally being little pricks. The entire time, the vast majority of parents sat outside in the mall commons gabbing and ignoring their charges.

I finally tossed a few of them after one kept setting off the Peter griffin and Homer talking bottle openers. I have no problem with kids wanting to hear them, but not five times and not six of them at once.

There were also cards being dropped, jerseys knocked off hangers. I know I sound like a crotchety old man ... but come on. You know your kids are being knobs. Do something and stop acting like it's my fucking job to tell your children how to behave.
