I’m a people watcher, to the extent that it’s not creepy. When it starts to have that ‘creepy’ feel to it, it stops, I promise. Being an observer of human behavior I feel that there are certain things that need to be pointed out, I’ve considered a few methods of approach on how to direct this article, but for the sake of fun I’m going to go with a list format.
The more you watch the news (or overhear it by accident, which is my personal account of it), watch people, and just see trends in general, there are certain things that stick out and it makes you go, wtf?
Well, this list is going to be the wtf list, the list that points out society is in trouble. Many other lists of this nature compare children to adults, I on the other hand, am simply going to list adult actions that lead to the appropriate reaction, wtf?
Grown men playing on jungle gyms
In the event that you are trying to lead your son or daughter to overcome the fear of a slide, that is acceptable. That above, is not. It truly makes you wonder what kind of childhood the person went through, then again, maybe it is recess time at the mental institution.
This guy looks like he’s on a damn rodeo venture. Probably banned from all the other playgrounds in the area, whether it’s because he’s a PEDO or his terrible choice in clothing attire, will never know. That would require talking to him, and sorry, I’m not that interested.
All right King Richard, you can now remove yourself from the slide. Not only do you look like a dick, but the 3 year old behind you wants a turn and you’ve been sitting there for a half hour now.
Dressing up like super heroes
Lets just clear one thing up, it’s one thing to have a hobby, and another to feel you can be a direct part of the hobby. It’s insane, the most accurate example is undoubtable star wars:
This is a star wars themed wedding (www.telegraph.co.uk)
A wedding!?!?! Seriously? I can picture how this went:
*Man gets down on one knee*
Man: “Hunny, I feel the force is with us, will you commit yourself to the forces of good, with my mighty lightsaber, and battle the dark forces for as long as we have living breath?”
Woman: “You know I do, lets go get some batteries before the lightsabers turn off!”
What kind of lunacy leads to this. Screw romance, we got got the force with us.
No, you are not obi wan, no, the force is not with you, the most accurate attempt of star wars phenomena was done by Silent Bob in Mall Rats long, long ago.
Again, no, you are not magneto. No, you do not have special powers. Can you imagine this being some 7 year olds father?
Son: “Dad can we go home, please?”
Magneto: “Quiet boy, there is work to be done!”
Store Clerk: “Sir, can I help you find something?”
Magneto: “I see no sir, only a super villain. ha-ha!”
Son: “Dad…please stop”
