I witnessed a very...interesting situation last night as I was leaving Wal-Mart. I was heading towards the exit when two teenage girls (they looked to be about thirteen or fourteen) come running through the entrance, laughing their heads off and looking behind them. Seconds later, a teenage boy about the same age comes strolling in, smirking, but all the while looking over his shoulder at an SUV parked right by the curb near the doors. As I'm passing by the boy, I notice the passenger window of the SUV being rolled down and the driver (a woman), looking very upset, calls out to the boy, "Please use the crosswalk next time!" And what does the boy do?
Yells to her, "F**king b***h!"
As if that wasn't bad or shocking, the woman's passenger (whom I assumed to be her husband), flips off the boy and yells back, "F**k you!"
And, while this is happening, I'm thinking that although the boy should've handled and presented himself better but probably doesn't know how or wants to, I would have expected better from the man. I feel that most of the youth I encounter need to learn how to deal and respond to social situations by watching the adults around them. I just cringe whenever I hear kids using foul language.
