And you Ryrun, when I deleted that first post that should have been enough for you to realize that it didn't need to be quoted, right? Talk about trying to get some **** stirred up. You saw that the post was deleted, yet you chose to quote and post it anyway. Talk about someone being an ******. So let me ask you ******, why WOULD you feel the need to quote that post after it had been deleted? What's the point? It was gone, so I had obviously had a change of heart, yet you decided that it would be best to quote it and post it anyway. Why? Why would you do that? Looks to me like you're the one that was looking to be argumentative, otherwise why not just let it go?
And no, I'm not the "tough love guy", but trying working in a prison around society's angels and you might get a better understanding of why I think kids need to be grounded in reality and not live in some fairy tale world. I've got way too many of those "angels" working for me who grew up thinking they were entitled because no one ever told them "No". Well, guess what happens? The first time someone does tell them "no", they don't have a clue on how to act because they've been given everything their whole lives and do indeed have that sense of entitlement. Or they think growing up that since they've always got their way, that they don't have to follow society's rules. They think that rules and laws don't apply to them and guess where that lands them? Working for me for $5.25 a month, picking up cigarette butts, because they all grew up in a world where no one ever told them "no", where no one told them they were messing up, where no one offered any criticism, where they thought they were entitled. The tough love guy? Nope, just a realist.
