    I agree with all of the above comments! I clicked on a link the other day and someone was ranting using the vilest language! Folks use the anonymity of the internet to say the most outrageous, mean, filthy things. They can't write a complete sentence yet they spew their hatred for everyone to read. Sad, Sad.

    My sentiments exactly. . . .the vulgarity is unreal and I am no prude by any means. My DS who will be 41 next month still calls me "The Warden". Hummm? Does that tell you anything??

    The entitlement attitude really gets to me. I think America should offer the Chance To Work Hard and Study Hard and make your way yourself. If your family can help you, then it's usually because they worked hard to be able to. Now a lot of families don't even put a premium on their kids studying or behaving in school or even learning in school. We have an all time record number of people on food stamps. But not a record number of people trying to grow food for themselves. We have so many millions out of work, but not many trying to start companies and make their own way. (I think most or many self employed people qualified as companies when it comes to filing IRS papers.) We seem to be a country going downhill as fast as some people are able to run downhill while shouting feed me, house me, take care of me, I'm entitled to it!

    The thing that makes me craziest is when I am trying to get my grocery shopping done and little kids are running everywhere. When did the grocery store or BJ's become a playground? I only have weekends to get my shopping done and there are times when I feel like running from the store screaming after dodging little kids and trying to miss them with my cart. When I was a kid I stayed by moms side or there was trouble for me. No playing in a public place was permitted. Plus I was expected to be quiet and polite.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Well, I really want to say something about the relationship between the increase of WARNING labels (for very obvious hazards/dangers) and the increase of stupid people . . . but I guess that wouldn't be very nice.

    If it makes you feel less like a fuddy duddy, my daughters would agree with most of this. And the youngest is 15!! She hates it when people are so rude and stupid. Oldest is already tired of working around the worst of them. She is getting laid off soon, said she could always go work a Walmart, but after a while who would protect the rude and stupid from her?? lol

    I couldn't agree with you more! What has happened to the art of conversation? The kids nowadays can't spell, dress so inappropriately it nearly makes you blush, have next to no manners.... grrrrrr! I can't tell you how many times a week I say to my DH (re theis very thing) "If I ever caught one of our kids acting/dressing/talking like that, there would be heck to pay!"!!!

    I think we all get that your name is Neesie, not Nessie.

    Think so? I don't mind typos but unfortunately, I've missed PMs because they were sent to NESSIE.
