What ticks me off more than anything

I went to pick up my lovely, little girl at school. While waiting there outside in the courtyard this little kid came out justa swinging his bag. His mom was there and he walked right by her. She pipes up and says, "Don't you walk across that street alone."
He keeps walking.
"I'm telling you. If you walk across that street, I'm whoopin' yer tail."
Looks back, smiles. Keeps walking.
"I mean it. And I'm tellin' yer daddy. He'll getcha too."
Walks right across.
"Put your bag in the back seat."
Puts his bag in the trunk. Get's in the car and comes out with a candy bar.
"Don't eat that. It's melted."
Proceeds to open it.
"I mean it. Don't eat it. It's melted."
Gobbles it right up. Walks back smiling the whole way.
"When you get home yer in trouble."
I guaran-f'ing-tee you she took him to McDonalds and bought him a cone and did nothing to him when he got home.

I almost friggen lost it.

I see it all the time and look at my toddler and warn: "Don't get any bright ideas".

My parents never did anything either, but just saying it was more than enough to scare us as kids.

The worst part is that this little darling will eventually grow up and get a job, and he'll probably come to work in my department.

I don't understand how parents can not discipline their children, I mean, isn't that part of being a parent? When I was a little tyke (admittedly, not that long ago) my mother would yell while my dad spanked me. I wasn't bad all that often, believe me.

I saw someone else use it once, so now it's mine and no one else can use it.

You can't spank your kids. Parents get trouble if they do, (most) schools won't because they're afraid they will get sued. Da' Man considers it a form of abuse.

When the kids grow some and start ditching school, some parents are being hauled into court and fined. So now parents are considered neglectful.

Meh, when I was a kid, I could run around the neighborhood and stay outside all day until the street lights started coming on. And play in the dirt.

Now, dirt is bad. The kids can't play outside unless they are shackled to a responsible person. My wife has had the policed sicced on her before, because she let the children play outside, while she stayed inside, but looking through the windows. She avoided a citation by being out of the house before the cops could get out of their car, thus proving that she was aware of what was going on.
