I love this one. I spent the whole day on Fox news reading and writing comments.
If only more parents took a hard line with their kids when they needed it.
One of my former co-workers did something similar while driving down the free way. She warned the kids that if they didn't stop fighting over the hand held game she would throw it out the window. They kept fighting, she asked for it (and they, not believing she would actually do it, gave it to her) and she threw it out the window. As she watched it shatter into a million pieces in the rear view mirror she thought to herself, "I can't believe I just threw $250 out the window" But now her kids believe her, and long trips are more enjoyable, with a lot less fighting.
My moniker in the comments is Cavpilot67. I think I irritated a few people, but I had nothing else to do all day.
Did you know that you can come off of military retirement and go back into the military? at least until September 2013. but if you have been out for more than 12 months you have to go through a "regreening" process, which basically means you go through a modified version of Basic Training. the DI drives you everywhere, opens doors for you, never yells, but you still have to sit through endless hours of Equal opportunity, consideration of others, and sexual harrassment classes. You live in a barracks with 3 other retirees for two weeks, and you are so far away from everybody else that really, the only thing to do is sit on foxnews and make commments when the weekend gets here......but hey, I'm going back to what I love, teaching people how to kill people that desperately need it.
