And if you tried that around me I'd tell you to fuck off and mind your own business.Quote:
Actually, I do and I have. In stores, in restaurants. You'd be surprised how well children react to a stranger adult instructing them to be quiet.
I keep my verbal comments to myself,,,usually. I have on occasion, made comments out loud (just loud enough for the offensive parents to hear). It is rare when I do this and reserved only for the most blatantly offensive types. A baby crying doesn't bother me. A child wailing due to "Waah!!! I didn't get my waaaayyyy!!! Waah...." That, if prolonged and unattended, pisses me off. My children got one lesson at this and never had to have a subsequent follow-up. Still, children's behavior normally doesn't hit my RADAR, but rude adults? That demands my attention. I hate blatantly rude types. My wife is usually my restraint device, thank God. No telling how many @$$ whippings she's saved me.
