What's mine is mine, what's yours is mine.

When did kids decide that everything automatically belongs to them? Last night at work they caught kids (couldn't be older than 14) stealing, and other kids (ages unknown) stealing one of our walkie talkies. Mind you, these are ratty old walkies that you can only hear the boring goings-on of *insert store name here*, and the batteries stink so they probably didn't even get to listen for long. They would have to have a special charger to even keep on using it. So tell me, what is the point of taking something stupid like that? If you're going to be a thieving moron, at least try and steal something cool or worthwhile! Sheesh.

There was also a group of girls (young teenagers at most) sauntering around the store carrying a giant inflatable penis. If they were going for shock value, they failed since no one else up near me even saw it. If they were trying to be cool, they failed since it just comes across as trashy and lame. Not to mention, YOU'RE 13. You're not supposed to know what a penis is, let alone want to carry around a giant inflatable one. (I know, I know, kids these days and whatnot. But you know what I mean.)

I suppose I'm an old, prudish, crochety lady now? I'll accept that. Now leave me and my prunes alone, The Price is Right is on soon. Ok, not for 2 days but it takes a long time for my geezerly old bones to the living room to watch tv.



  1. You make me laugh!! When Andy Rooney retires from "60 Minutes" they ought to hire you as the resident curmudgeon! (Of course, you don't have the eyebrows, but perhaps they will be willing to overlook that). Linda

  2. Hahaha! Andy Rooney and whatnot....

    And seriously?! 13 years old?! How DO they even know what one of those is :/ That's it, we need to build a family fort and keep the kids inside our own hand built society where the kids are all like they were back in the 1800s. Bwahahaha.

  3. I bet I could grow the eyebrows.
