#226-DID I WARP HIM FOR LIFE?


Yes, I'm out of my mind!

WOW! I AM USUALLY SO VERY LONG WINDED.  
SO TO REWARD YOU FOR STICKING WITH ME THROUGH MY LONG POSTS, HERE IS A SHORT ONE (about time!)

I was reading a story when I was reminded of what I said to a young boy (whose mother was allowing him to run around under and through clothes racks).  My daughter, then around 16, was in the dressing room of a fairly nice store, trying on clothes.  This kid who looked to be about eight, reached up for the doorknob of the room my daughter was in.   I knew my daughter would freak if he opened it.

I had already had enough of this little stinker and his neglectful parent so I put a scowl on my face and said in a quiet, low, menacing voice, “You touch that knob and I will cut all of your fingers off!”

The kid jumped, and immediately sought out his mother.  He stayed glued to her side for the rest of their visit.




Now, this was an awful thing to say to a kid, and I know that.  But, maybe my comment made him think about what he was doing and that mother was right when she warned him about strangers.  Then again, maybe it warped him for life (I hope not).
