I didn't know whether to laugh or to cry. I still don't. Be careful what you wish for.
I mean that's an extreme. I'm talking about the kids that just run amok because their parents refuse to do anything to control them. Start yelling and screaming in the checkout isle, pulling **** off the shelves, etc.
