Observations On Parenting - Friday the 13th Edition

Last night I succombed to some marketing ploy by a movie studio and went to see the new Friday the 13th movie ON FRIDAY THE 13TH!!!! I am a total nerd when it comes to things like this. My friend Stubbs and I also saw the Omen when it came out on 06-06-06. It's something I plan on telling my children one day.

Which brings me to the topic of raising children and the techniques other people employ while doing so.

As I was walking out of the theater at about midnight the place was packed with people waiting t get into the next showing of "Jason kills dumb people with a machete" and I actually saw several people carrying toddlers (as in kids 3 and under) into the theater.

Friday the 13th

When their kids get knocked up at the age of 12, tossed into prison at 17, or a mental institution before they can legally drink I am sure they will blame the public schools and not the fact that they suck as parents. I can't even imagine why they would bring children of that age to such a movie. If you are going to corrupt your kids do it in the privacy of your own home so that the rest of the world doesn't have to know how big of a dipshit you are.

  1. These will be the same parents going to therapy because little Caitlin won't sleep in her own bed and Timmy draws skeletons during arts and crafts at the daycare center.

  2. I know I keep my child-corruption private.

    I was watching Burn After Reading the other night. Ten-year old walked in just as Brad Pitt's brains were splattered on the closet wall. To top it off, I was laughing as George Clooney hightailed it downstairs to get a kitchen knife.
