eli783 Totally agree with punishment n discipline being thrown out the window. When I was younger I was totally in fear of adults cuz I knew if I gave someone a reason to reprimand or rebuke me in some way, my parents would be in agreement and I'll just get two beatdowns instead of one. Nowadays parents don't even try to hear the adult in a situation out.

speedjason what happened to kids nowadays? parenting. you cant touch the kids when they do stupid things. thats why. punishment and discipline are completely not allowed these days. kids nowadays do thing without thinking about the consequences. they have no responsibility for what they do because they are never taught to. when I was little, if I did something wrong in class, teacher would make me go outside in front of the class, and then made me stay late and had a word with me. she would even write a note and have my parents sign it. and when my parents knew what I had done at school, they dont go sue the teacher, they punish me with a belt on my ass because I did wrong. and its their responsibility to make me a well being.

Crankthat Skateboarding is not a crime!

Just being little shits.
Who cares?
At least they are on the slopes burning up that reckless energy.
Buy them another Jolt!
Let them be little shits, they are just having fun.
Then when you see them stopped in the middle of the trail.
Whitewall em.
Then just stop, smile ear to ear, say sorry dude, be sure they know you do not mean it.

Be sure to keep a eye open for iceballs after that

slyder I think here in the Midwest where the resorts are more crowded this is a bit more common. Don't really know why but many of the perspectives before are probably all to blame
It has progressed from laughing at buddies to perfect strangers including adults.

I have "Told" these line jumping kids, hey the line starts way back there don't skip in front of all these ppl that have been waiting.
Some ppl look at me like they wish they said something others glares like how dare you yell at someone else's kids.
Lifties also are to blame by not having more clear marked lines and crowd control on very busy days.

MLK day I just stay away from the resort, insane lines not worth it to me.

globoat There's just a lot of jerks in general. They don't become A-holes over night. That little kid jerk will grow up to be an adult jerk. It's only a matter of time.

Can you imagine some guy bitching out a kid that isnt his in the mall for acting like a jackass? HA. not today. I feel like I'm watching invasion of the body snatchers as the pussification of america occurs. OMG , you did what?!?!?! YOu said what?!?!?! then everyone points and SCREAMS.....
I agree in theory but our sue-happy culture these days is a major deterrent... I would NEVER smack someone's kid because you just know their parents would be looking to file a lawsuit. Hell, a guy challenged me to a fight at a casino last year and when I didn't back down like I guess he expected I would he said "You fuckin touch me and I'll sue you for everything you got".

It was hilarious but an eye-opener too.

Thats just messed up. Ill wish i could blame the parents but the kids do have personalities of their own. I know that even as a kid i would never have done that, my parents did something right, and thank god i never acted that bad.

No discipline. And of course like two like little crews that were both being obnox got in a fight or something because someone cut or held someone spot so they are all arguing holding up the line like so irritating. Everyone needs to chill out and be happy to ride.
really? haha? need I say more?

The kid fell on his face and started crying. Then we just laughed because of how stupid some of these kids are
the sheer level of stupid from kids like that is honestly irritating. by 10 or 12 kids are actually capable if independent conceptual though, so why the hell does a 12 year old thing he/she has any room at all to have an attitude with a 6' grown male? do these little weeds know we can smack em because they are kids so they just push it with strangers?

I reeeeeallllly wanted to laugh. Loud, long and hard.
hahaha karma is great. i certainly would have laughed and pointed.
