I'd be quite interested in hearing your rationalization for how she's the bad guy and they're just innocent victims.

Donutz is spot on. She asked them to stop and the kid launched the gap anyway. The kids were being dicks...they're the kind that ruins it for other skaters.

So yeah, does that mean all of you limo drivers who took us to our proms are a bunch of alcoholics? Just like how you think rich kids are automatically selfcentered?

I have met one of the sons of the mothers on The Housewives of OC. I'm sure he's the kind of guy you guys all hate because this is the kind of show people watch to complain about rich people. But he was like any other dude and was not concerned how rich other people were. So why do poor people concern about rich people being ignorant? Poor people can easily be ignorant and dumb too.
u practically rephrased what he said. piss off knuckle dragger.

Not even the ones I end up hating; I just avoid those.

You sound like the old man that I possibly sprayed while hauling down a steep slope snowboarding. He went out of his way to catch up to me trying to yell at me for I guess going to fast or spraying him with snow on accident. I ignored him and kept riding. And he fell in front of me I guess trying to cut me off to get back at me. I hate old people who think young people owe them respect. They're ignorant to think that way so I give them none of it to piss them off.
Go away you fucking troll.

I've always felt that respect should be the starting point, and you earn disrespect. You are the first person I've seen actually articulate it.
