So let me tell you about the shittiest parent on the motherfucking planet.
I work at a grocery store and this man comes in with his 11 year old son. He buys a pack a cigarettes and a two cases of beer. The son was holding a two dollar drawing pad and placed it on the belt and I guess the dad didn’t notice it at first but when I was about to scan the pad he asked where’d it have come from and turned towards the kid and asked “Did you put that shit up there?”. He told me to put it back and then told his 11 year old child that he “ain’t paying for that gay ass notebook.”. So I looked at the kid, who was close to tears and saying how he ran out of paper at home and my heart broke. So I gave the pad to him, for free, and told the dad I would take care of it. I gave the kid some tokens for a game outside and said I would look forward to buying some of his drawings and paintings when he’s all famous. He kids face was so priceless and I thought everything was good. But then, about 10 ten minutes after giving the kid his notebook, I walked outside and saw this. The drawing pad all ripped up and tossed on the pavement. I could only imagine what happened in the parking lot, but I know that that poor kid heart is fucking ripped apart, just like this pad.
I’m fucking horrified that there are parents like this, who, just because it’s not masculine or gender specificthey won’t let their children follow their true passions or explore interests that lead to their happiness. Even more so, I’m horrified that parents don’t care about the fine arts anymore because it doesn’t have job security. Since when did it ever matter to a child if their passion makes them money or not? Parenting is about supporting whatever makes your child happy. Have some fucking consideration for your child’s wants not your homophobic and anti-art ideals.
Everybody needs to see this
it’s back, and i will not NOT reblog it v.v ever
I can only hope that douchebag sees this and realizes that (at this point) almost 300 thousand people think that he’s the biggest piece of garbage on the planet.
This is one of the reasons I can’t work in retail anymore. I’ve seen too many scumbags who wouldn’t buy their kid a $1 juicebox because they needed to use that foodstamp money for cigarettes. (I don’t know how it works in other places, but here we have EBT cards, which is a nice way of saying foodstamps. They get loaded with two types of credit, one of which is “cash” and CAN BE USED FOR ALCOHOL AND CIGARETTES.)
I’ve never smoked cigs, and I don’t drink that much, but I would think that above the health risks, having a kid would be a pretty fucking good reason to quit.
Ooooh….. Whistle’s in a foul mood now.
