    You're probably justified in feeling this way. I just think dumbshit parents are easier to tolerate than dumbshit kids, because at least the parents are old enough to know that it's not appropriate to scream at the top of their lungs because they're not getting their way. Most of them, anyway.

    Well, shit.

    We should start a thread (I guess in SE++) that says, "Sign if you never want to have kids because that's just a dumb idea."

    Your people's determination is lacking.

    It helps I've got over a dozen nephews and/or nieces are enough if I ever want to see children be adorable. Three specifically. The others pretty much suck.

    I felt this way before I became a parent, but now whenever I get barreled over by 150 pounds of yodeling toddler in the jungles of Walmart I can't help but direct the lion's share of my ice daggers at the sweats-clad baby factory waddling along in tow.

    I don't mind kids. I mean, my mom ran a nursery/day-care out of our house during my formative years so they hold very few mysteries for me, but even so I think they're pretty cool. I also cannot pass up the chance to mold a mind in my own terrible image.

    I know I'd make a horrible parent, because my natural instinct in dangerous situations is always to see how it'll play out, even if I know it'll play out horribly.

    I'm sure if I had children they'd end up being accidentally maimed or killed because of it.

    Well, if I ever had kids, they would just be exercises in Asian academic overachievement. Music lessons start at the age of 4. If they can't do long-division by the age of 5, I will have to disown them and start over.

    If you were ukranian you don't disown them till after they have been discovered to be a prolithic gun runner and gotten their sibling killed in the process.

    I really love playing peek-a-boo with babies, when they find it amusing. I could keep doing it for an hour, without getting bored.

    See I'm getting to an age where I actually have nieces and nephews and my friends and coworkers are having kids and I'm seeing how much behavior is perpetuated by the parents. I just came to the realization the other day when I was at the bank, of all places, and tying up the line were two parents who brought both their kids with them into the bank - one was a toddler and the other an infant. The infant was screaming his little head off while the toddler was running around hitting his toy car against every available surface, and the parents just didn't seem to give a fuck and were just going on with business as usual. And I though, "Why doesn't my nephew act like that?" and i realized, "oh yeah, it's because my sister will tell him to sit down and shut up or else you're going to get paddled, young man!"

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.
    the "no true scotch, man" fallacy.

    I'm serious, though. Who tries to talk to a teller about opening a checking account while holding a screaming baby two feet from the teller's face? What kind of brain damage makes you think that's acceptable behavior?

    My brother and sister in law has the same method as your sister. My sister and brother in law told their son to use his big boy words and he's a whiny brat. I fail to comprehend how two teachers are screwing that up.

    Well, sometimes there's just no helping it. Try to remember that next time you can't find someone to look after your kids while you absolutely must go out to run errands, and people give you dirty looks.

    I dunno, maybe it's that we venerate babies and parenting to such a ridiculous degree, but yeah: parents today seem unable or unwilling to discern the difference between where it's appropriate to be accompanied by infants/kids and where it isn't. I was fucking appalled a few weeks ago when my friends and I went to a reasonably pricey restaurant and the people next to us had about five kids crawling over, under, and around every table in the wing. I was like seven before I so much as saw the inside of a restaurant that wasn't a McDonald's or Wendy's.

    That's the other thing: most of the time it's the parents, but some kids really are fuckups, or have chemical imbalances or god knows what else. That's what terrifies me most about the prospect of parenting.
