I seriously gotta get off Blab. Yesterday I saw one even more harrowing than this one - a girl decided to do the same thing. She stops on a ped bridge to let some people go by... and then she starts clambering over the guard rail to jump. Some fast thinking kids managed to grab her by the belt when she was halfway over and haul her back. What in hell is into our kids?
I still remember puzzling over Charlie Brown as a kid. He’d drop in on Lucy, who charged him five cents for psychiatric help. Once Chuck paid up, she’d tell him what a loser he was and he’d feel even worse afterwards. I didn’t get the joke as a kid and I struggle with it as an adult.
Kids these days are getting “bullied” on-line. They are literally committing suicide because of words on a screen. I don’t get it. I suppose, if I were to fill in for Lucy - the first thing I’d do is grab Charlie’s cell phone and grind it under my heel. Then I’d take a sledge to his computer. It’s an “off” button, Chuck! Use it!!! And of course, he’d probably feel even worse without it. Some humour is a little too dark for my liking.
We live in seriously evil and warped times. Our kids need some good work and play.
