THE CASE FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!

Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the Swiss Family Obnoxious, the latest in a long line of tourists to bring their own brand of anarchy with them to 7th and Montana. The parents -- a young couple in their mid-to-late twenties -- simply couldn't be bothered to supervise their two young children who treated Our Favorite Starbucks like their own, private playground. The son, a brash six-year-old, spent the morning zipping up and down 7th Street on a scooter, weaving around pedestrians and dodging oncoming traffic. His younger sister, meanwhile, toddled right up to a strange dog and shoved her hands into its mouth. The parents did nothing. All I can say is, watch out, folks, in 15-years these Brats will be on the freeway ...!

It sure makes you wonder how parents can be so oblivious.

Aww, what cute little monsters.

Ugh, nothing is more irritating than encountering the Demon Seed when out and about.

I'm glad you survived!

Hugs, Beth

Where's Trigger the security guard while all this shenanigans is going on?...in the restroom?

You didn't 'accidentally' stick a foot out on front of the scooter? "OOOPS! MY BAD!" Heh...

as children we wouldn't dare... my parents would have opened up a can of whoop ass on us...LOL.. Sometimes I think the parents need the discipline or at least taught good ole fashion common courtesy...

Not sure what has happened with parenting in the last 10 years, but it sure has become much more lenient than I am used to.

Some accountability and some butt stinging is in order :o)

So sad for the children. They are looking for someone to tell them no.

Feed them each an apple fritter and they'd never be the same again. I heard it's like taking an overdose of Rittalin!
