Best real-life line you've heard recently?

    I was standing in line at the Kaiser pharmacy today.
    There was a small boy -- somewhere between 2 and 3 -- crouching under the counter screaming/crying (having a tantrum).

    The woman who was with him, who looked to be his grandma,
    grabbed him firmly (not forcibly) by the arm and pulled him to a stand.

    She said, "Don't put that in your ear. You'll die."
    He immediately stopped crying.

    She produced from her palm a pink tubular shaped object about 1" long.

    She offered it to him and said, "Here, put this in the garbage."
    He started crying again and said, "I can't!"

    She escorted him over to the garbage can and reiterated, "Don't put that in your ear. You'll die."

    The boy stopped crying again, lifted his arm, and dropped the object into the trash can.

    It was one of the most effective examples of good parenting I've ever witnessed in my life.

      to explain this Bart Durham is a big litagation Lawer that Advertises on TV how much he wins for clients! Big lawsuit settelments for accidents and people being opressed, or suposidly so anyway.

      In the Grocery Line a week agao, I was behind  a woman with a child who was bored and kept picking up a can and throwing it back down into the Buggy. Kept it up for a bit, and Her mother got real annoyed and she told her

      "If you do that again I will pop your Bottom! The kid looked at her and answerd, you do and I'll call Bart Durham!

      the whole line cracked up!  Best example of Parent training I'd seen!   lol

    Ha ha ha! That's brilliant!
    How did kids get the upper hand (literally) against parents' threat of any form of corporal punishment?

    "Don't you dare touch me or I'll report you to CPS!!" must be something they're teaching in kindergarten. NOT LOL.
