OK, here is the call,"SUNK VEHICLE" at the flats. when we get there we see a 2002 Dodge Durango 15 foot underwater and 2 -17 year old girls lookin at it. They were probably thinking (WOW, look at the pretty colors the leaking fuel makes when it reaches the surface). when they were asked what happened, They replied, Like we parked my PARENTS truck Like up there, and like we went over there to talk to Biff and Buffy and like the truck just started to roll down the hill and like went into the lake. Upon a $1000 dollar tow bill with 2 divers and the truck now out of the water and a check of the drivers compartment was made a reply was made to the girls that went something like this, " Like when you like normally park the truck do you like leave it in drive and like running???????? Their reply, "I thought i put on the emergency brake".
Folks, I am worried, this is our future leaders.

This is like the 16 year old boy that sparked up the pretty glass pipe full of hippy grass in his daddys Suburban while i was parked next to him in my mobile Sheriffs office billboard. when he finally looked to his right and saw me staring at him in disbelief, his eyes bugged out like a deer caught in some headlights and he threw the LIT pipe in the backseat.

Be afraid folks Be afraid.

Is this a word that they are teaching our kids in school. i have yet to talk to someone under the age of 18 that does not say this word at least 5 times in a sentence. I had a lady around the age of 40 definetly well to do and had intelligence answer a statement i made by saying with a slight up and down head bob FAR OUT. I wanted so bad to say, " DUUDE, you know Jerry Garcia is dead now, let it rest.

I've got two teenage girls and the phrase I'm sick and tired of hearing is " I'M ALL" . Every time they say those two words it cost them a dollar. Pretty soon I'll have enough for my new boat.

My teenage boys' have a favorite phase . Anything they don't like they say " That's Gay". I really hate that phrase.

I have a 17 year old son and he says the same thing. I he does not like something it is gay, if i tell him to do something then i am gay. i tried to explain to him that after 18 years of being married and bringing his little butt into the world i would know by now if i was gay.
I have 3 German Shorthair pointers that i trained and hunt birds with. they were easier to train and listen 10 times better than the boy. i have 2 electric beeper/spark collars for the dogs when i hunt. i have never had to spark any of my dogs more than 2 times for doing anything, that includes snake training, chasing furry woodland critters and not comming back to me when i say back! wouldnt it be great if we could put these on our kids. if you did not know where they were, hit a button it make a real loud beep that you can hear for 600 yards, Kid located. if you tell them to do something and they give you that eye roll and the look like you just asked them rip up 2 mile of asphalt and they continue to do what ever they were doing, you give them about a level4 jolt and watch how quick you get their attention.
As i get older i now know why old people treat their dogs like they were their children. Unlike children, with dogs=
1) You never have to tell them more than 2 times not to do anything.
2) They are easier to train
3) THEY DO NOT TALK BACK
4) You can scream you head off at them and within 5 seconds, they are at your feet begging for forgivness
5) After you scream at them if you pet them once or talk nice to them, all is forgotten.
6) They are willing to travel with you anywhere anytime no matter how long it takes and will never bitch.
7) They will follow you to the end of the earth, through rain, hail snow and heat wagging their tail and thinking your a god.

man this sounds like a perfect wife, (sorry Nightcrawler)
just ranting.

Kids.

I totally agree. I too am a dog lover. As for kids, I couldn't wait till they moved out. As for dogs, I hate it when they are gone.

Kids and Dogs

Isn't that the truth, I've raised Shorthairs for over thirty years and get more respect from them than kids.

Wow that was harsh, I really liked the part about how people treat thier dogs like children :wink: . HA HA, in all seriousness though I think that if you really want to pinpoint a problem with MY generation, it has to be lack of motivation, everything that a lot of teens expierence is taken for granted. I can't count how many of my aquaintances have trouble appreciating even the most important things, such as (not like) parents who care. In the end after everything goes unappreciated what's left to work hard for? And then since you have nothing to work for I think some teens lose respect, and after that nothing good can happen. But that's just my humble and probably crazy opinion, after all I'm just a teen.

Ha ha car in the lake, that's like so gay (just kidding) :D

Don't get me wrong, I love my boys. Even though they are a pain at times, I feel they are typical teenagers and wouldn't trade having them for anything the world. They are respectful and courteous towards others. I spend most of my spare time watching them play soccer/baseball and do not look forward to the day when they no longer play. That time came recently for my 15yo and I am very disappointed. This will also be the last year for my 17yo. He will be going to college next year and to be honest I am not looking forward to the day he moves out. My only regret was that I put off taking up fishing until they were too old to appreciate it like I do. I figure I will have many years to fish once they are grown and hopefully there may come a time when they want to give it another shot.

Just like when i was a kid, kids today forget that we were there before them. you see, we were not always parents. speaking for myself, there was things my parents did when i was growing up that i swore that i would never do to my child. I never have. as for the lack of motivation. when you hit about 16 to 18 reality smacks most kids upside the head like a 2x4. you realize that you are gonna have to leave home soon, what are you gonna do, how are you gonna support yourself, what about the dreams you had about your life. we were ther before you and those of us that try to lead by example remember that time in our life. you are only a kid once. be a kid. you can worry about your life after you graduate high school. as for my sons motivation, he wanted to drive, he got a job and has to pay for all fuel, repairs and half of his insurance. he wanted to bring a boat to the lake to fish with his friends, he bought a used bass tracker and pays for all costs. you will respect something better if you work for the money you pay for the toy with. he is a good kid, but still blind deaf and braindead.

It is amazing what we go through with children. Our youngest starts at the U of A on Monday. It always amazed us at the number of times that you run into someone like a teacher or one of their friend's parents, and they say something about what a wonderful, polite child they are. And we're 'like', No way, you've confused our daughter with someone else. But they eventually become someone you can have an intelligent discussion with. Just be patient.

Boatcop, no offense taken. However, I'm blonde and don't know any better! :roll: Although it does sound like the perfect husband! :p

I've got great kids! They LIKE drive me nuts sometimes (okay, sometimes more than sometimes :lol: ). I'm a little worried now though. Samantha is 11 and is already doing the eye roll as if I asked her to rip up 2 miles of asphalt using only her fingernails and then continuing on doing what she was doing! What is she going to be like at 16?! :lol:

I had the pleasure of spending 6 weeks with the meanest, cruelest, sadistic basic sumbitch training instructor in San Antonio, Texas in the early 70's. When graduation day finally arrived, I did the polite thing and walked up to him to shake his hand and "thank" him for making me a better person. Well, during the course of the conversation, he told me that he had once been a training instructor for military guard dogs, and that he was scheduled to return to that endeavor. In his words he said that dogs are much easier to train than dog-d*ck recruits! That has always stuck with me, and your posts here reminded me of that.

By the way, he shook hands like a little girl!
