LETTING THEIR KIDS RUIN THINGS IN STORES AND RESTAURANTS

“Letting their kids roam around and destroying things in stores or restaurants.

MAKING POLITICS MAJOR PART OF THEIR LIFE

DOG WITHOUT A LEASH

“Walking a dog without a leash outside of the designated areas, also, if you can not control your dog when it’s off the leash in the designated areas, don’t take it off the leash. Doesn’t matter what the size, breed, or temperament of your dog is. You don’t deserve a dog if you don’t understand why or still think it doesn’t apply to you.”

OBESITY

“Being obese. Used to be 280-300 pounds. The judge might be the wrong word, but I more strongly empathize and wish I could help, eventually making me angry. It’s not very rational, especially because I know exactly how it happens. I just wish these people realized what a better quality of life is available to them. Especially younger children, in those cases, I do judge the parents.”
