Meow

Let’s waste more of the court’s time and taxpayer’s money.

Meow. A district judge has been asked to decide whether that word is a harmless taunt or grounds for misdemeanor harassment. Jeannette police charged a 14-year-old boy for “meowing” whenever he sees his neighbor, 78-year-old Alexandria Carasia.

You’ve got to be fucking kidding me. The old lady needs to grow some skin and find a hobby. The boy’s parents need to teach him some manners.

What a whiny waste of time.

  1. You’ve got to admit though, the boy learned the behavior from his parents.
    I can’t wait ’til the little brat ends up in juvvie and his parents are stunned because they did not see it coming.

  3. Ugh. Don’t even get me started on disrespectful teenagers. I deal with these little fuckers every single night when they come in to buy cigarettes and have the nerve to get an attitude when I ask them for ID. They act like 1 week past their 18th birthday is SO OLD.

    I had some little shithead try to stare me down tonight, like he was going to intimidate me into selling him cigarettes. I told him to take his ass somewhere else and that I didn’t even want to see his face in my store again until he can produce an ID and get a fucking attitude adjustment. The funny part was when he told me t hat I couldn’t talk to him like that. Oh, really? I explained to him that he was on private property and I can talk to him any which way I please. I also explained to him how Texas laws work and how I don’t have to serve him if I don’t fucking feel like it. The little bastard called me a bitch and left in a huff. Waaaaah. I hope he ran home and told his mommy.

    When I was a teenager (and yes, I realize that 27 is not “old” by any means), I NEVER spoke to adults in the manner that teenagers speak to adults now. Not a night goes by that I don’t want to reach across the counter and strangle some disrespectful douchebag.

  4. I read shit like this, and my blood boils. That old bitch should be fined for the court costs for bringing a frivolous lawsuit.

  5. I agree with girl – kids may have been doing all the same crap as they do now (drugs, sex) but they didn’t seem to talk back and give attitude to adults as much as they do now. They have absolutely no respect for anyone (parents’ fault for trying to be “friends” with their kids instead of parents like they should be). And when did they ever get the idea that adults had no “right” to tell them how to live their life and what to do? Um, hello, they are still minors so I guess that means the legal system gives me the right. Harumph.

  6. I definitely agree tha the lawsuit is one big pile of crap and a total waste of time, but I also think the kid is a complete waste of oxygen and that his momma should have swallowed instead.

  7. Okay I am thinking 2 things here. He very well may have only done this twice, but twice too many times. Secondly, why is it in a court room? This is the perfect opportunity for the judge to haul the parents in front of him and verbally thrash them.

    Growing up, it was our responsibility to look after elderly neighbors. Rainy days, we brought their papers and mail to the door. Shoveling Dad’s driveway? Yep, right after the old people’s was cleared including all walks and salted when necessary. Raking leaves? Sure we had a huge yard, but as our parents explained, we were young and full of energy, go spend some of it on the old peoples yard and you better have done a good job as dad didn’t want to look out at an eyesore. Accepting treats for the work? Forget it. It was our responsibility to look after them as one day we will be like them.

  8. And that’s something you very rarely see anymore, Pam, and it’s sad. Nowadays, kids expect to get paid to rake the leaves or mow the lawn. Excuse me? You’re living rent free, you don’t buy your own food or clothes AND you want your parents to pay you for keeping up the house that YOU live in? I think not.

  9. Even a law that tells me that I can’t sell cigarettes to youngsters is too much nanny for me.
    Parents teach their children about these things.
    Not the government.

    Nice blog Dogsnot.
