Which Kids Are Really Screwed Up
While going through life one heard different things and it dawned on me the other day that there are pockets in my mind where I store things that I’ve been hearing over a life time. One such pocket I have up there gathering some lint is one that stores all the stories I’ve heard of kids that are screwed up and possible reasons as to why they are screwed up.
I’ve heard that the children of teachers are screwed up as are the children of police officers. I’ve heard that the first child born in a family is apt to be screwed up (fortunately I am the last of four children).
What about only children? They are screwed up because they get too much attention and are usually spoiled. I know a few only children and I might agree with that one.
Children of famous people are supposed to be really screwed up. It seems that too many children shoulder the burdens of their parents. Remember, children can be cruel and if a parent has some sort of a weird occupation the kid will take crap for it. Kids are clickish.
My wife tells a story about when she once went to a football game at her high school. She lived in a very rich community, Mercer Island, Washington. When the opposing team from a less wealthy community scored a point the Mercer Island kids would stand up in the bleachers and each would hold up a twenty dollar bill and chant:
“That’s All Right! That’s OK! You’re going to work for us one day!”
Holy shit, what monsters…
