My son is autistic - and I rarely have problems. He is 18, 6', 200lbs and all I have to do is start counting down 5,4,3 (that's usually as far as I get). I have never reached one.

I am 41 years old and there are times I still FEAR my father. My hubby laughs, what is he actually going to do to me. Doesn't matter. Dad and I are more or less friends now, but he can still put the fear of God in me.

And that's the way it should be.

well your MIL is ....I tell you I raised 4 boys. The oldest was a challenge!

He was about 14 and he was giving me a hard time and I smacked him and told him to do whatever it was I had told him to do. He walked over to the phone and picked it up, I asked him what he was doing, his reply I'm calling child protection....I looked right at him and said go right ahead.... PRAY they get here before I KILL YOU!! He looked right at me .... and put the phone down and did what I told him to do!

One other time.... they were about 19 & 16 at the time, he and his brother were fighting verbally ... I had had enough, and told them more than once to knock it off... well they didn't! I had a meat mallet in my hand because I was pounding steak, I walked right up to them and hit the door jam right between there heads! I told the both of them the next one that opens their face will get this in their head. The oldest looked DOWN at me (he was about 6 ft tall) just looked at me like you wouldn't dare, because I'll knock you down. I said go right ahead I'll put you in the hospital, I may be in the bed next to you, but I will put you in the hospital! They both shut up and walked away.

I was a single mom raising 4 boys.... my ex was not around to lend any support at all. They all are law abiding citizens and all still holding down jobs in this economy, and we talk about all those things now. Parents now adays want to be their kids friend, love them enough to be their parent. At times it would seem easier to just give in to what they want.... that is the test that they are giving you.. to see if you will do what you say and protect them and mean what you say. My boys have since told me that they knew that I was the parent that cared enough about them, because I was the one who was always there.

My Step-mother-in-law (way to many hyphens) says that it is "against the law" to lay a hand to a kid . . . and also that time outs don't work ether. . . maybe that is why her very intelligent kid almost felt high school. (byw he came back got into college, almost felt out gain, then came back to get into a grad program that only as 20 people a year. His is smart just really lazy.)

2B & Chris....so glad to hear I'm not the only mom who wasn't afraid to discipline her kids and now I'm reaping the rewards. First born son (who still remembers permanently losing all his pacifiers in one day for each time he whacked his baby sister) was stubborn but I would not be defeated! He graduated h/s salutatorian in 2011 and the sister he whacked is going to be valedictorian for 2013 (as of now). My youngest daughter has already told me not to count on her being any-torian but we'll see.....

I went shopping with my children .... hands on cart or in the cart your choice..... if you act up I will spank you and leave and will spank you again because I had to leave!

Years ago went out to dinner with MY grandmother, my mom and dad, aunt and uncle (Grandma's son and daughter, my aunt and my dad) My aunts children did not behave at all My children were fidgety but behaved, (7 kids total) my grandmother told me after that my 4 were very well behaved and that she was ashamed of her own daughter's children.

It got to where I just had to give them the "look"! They still to this day say mom don't look at me like that!

We were in the ICU waiting room waiting on an update on Dad while in open heart surgery and this stupid kid starts picking up the phone they call the family on. I told him not to play with the phone. He says I'm not. Then his stupid mother comes over trying to use it till my sister in law set her straight.
You don't mess with her when it comes to her Daddy!

If you want to be happy, desire and pursue happiness more for others than yourself, and your own well-being will take care of itself. Dedicate your weight-loss journey and the achievement of all your goals to someone else and think of them when times get tough.

OK this probably belongs on the "pushes buttons" thread but I've already blathered all over that one today. I know everyone wonders WTH kind of town I live in or shop in based on my previous posts.....well it just keeps getting better. I went grocery shopping today and I had to go the huge supermarket because the other store had an incident yesterday. A crazy lady armed with a steel pipe attacked an employee who was shelving stuff because she thought she was someone she was angry with. Anyhoo, when I grocery shop I HAVE to put in ear buds and listen to my mp3 in an attempt to drown out the obnoxious, whiny, screaming, undisciplined kids. So I'm jamming away and suddenly this lady hollers down the aisle I'm in: "WHERE'S THE CEREAL? I CAN'T FIND IT!" (omg, i did it again...went shopping on senior citizen discount day) I raise my eyebrows like "are you kidding me?" and then like the @$$ that I am - I walk her to the very next aisle and point to the thousands of boxes of cereal. OK, that's not even the incident I came on here to post. It was once I got to the checkout lane. I'm standing in line with my tunes still blaring and I hear blood-curdling screams from a little kid THRU my earbuds. Everybody turns to look and this kid keeps screaming her brains out. Security races over thinking someone is either kidnapping or killing this kid (that's what I thought too) and the mother just shrugs her shoulders like "whaddya gonna do-I guess my little darling doesn't want to shop". OMG, l wanted to practice my pipe-beating skills on that mom! When my kids were little and even thought about acting up, I gave them the "look" and threatened to "take them out to the minivan"....PRESTO, perfectly behaved kids. They laugh about it today and said the reason the threat worked was because they knew those magic words meant they had gone too far and they didn't want to know WHAT was in the van. A lifetime of broccoli, their toys put out in trash, a ferocious tiger, no Christmas presents.....the possibilities were horrifying and not worth misbehaving. Strangers used to come up to our table in restaurants and tell us what wonderful children we had...blah, blah. I would smile and think "that's because I have a brain and a van".

The driver was an apparently lost out of state person. And I'm not sure what is up with the 17mph speed limit... It is dumb.

Ugghhhh. I got caught behind someone driving 5, yes FIVE, mph driving in a 35mph zone.

Dear lord. Dear god. UGH! FIVE. MILES. PER. HOUR!!!

I didn't think my little Honda could handle it.

Also, the speed limit in my neighborhood is 17mph. How is that possible?!

Another thing...They cancelled the first two weeks of the NHL season today. Tragic. No sarcasm there...actually.

This is actually the worst thing I witnessed today - well, so far. Still on a quest for jeans, I heard J. Lo has a clothing line at a dept. store and thought SURELY my @$$ can fit in HER jeans. I was right but unfortunately they were way too short. Anyhoo, while I'm perusing some workout clothes near the store entrance - I hear the door alarms go off, followed by a cashier yelling "Sir, please come back......SECURITY, A SHOPLIFTER!" The thief (a man) runs for the parking lot and a security guard bolts outside after him. A few minutes later I overheard a couple cashiers saying they weren't even able to get the guy's license plate number. I left the store, drove directly to a drugstore, bought fritos and chocolate, drove home, stuffed my face while crying at the same time. I was shopping in a nearby "nice, safe city" or so it used to be. Now I don't even want to leave the house.

A guy was riding his bike toward me on the wrong side of the road of course, in my lane of course, one hand on the bike, the other pulling a lawn mower behind him which of course was even further out in my lane.

Just one?

Anyone idling their car in line for the drive-through window when gas is $4/gallon.
OR
The poor McD's worker standing at the entrance to the drive-through (and wearing a florescent vest so he/she doesn't get maimed or killed while earning minimum wage) taking orders on a tablet computer to make the line "go faster".

People--park your car (the farther the better), turn off the ignition, and waddle into the eatery of your choice.

First off - thanks for the concern guys but this is common practice in our area. Mostly middle aged men of a certain heritage to white and Latino women. And trust me, I'm safe. Between the dog, the martial arts training, and my 9mm I'm really not afraid. I'm not cocky (I've got the wrong equipment) but I am confident!

Second @DISAPPEARING1 - how did you refrain from slapping her! I truly admire your self control.

OMG, I thought I’d seen every obnoxious, rude, selfish, inconsiderate behavior displayed in public, but I was wrong. Keep in mind that I live in Michigan – the state which boasts the #1 spot on national lists for: Murder, Crime, Unemployment, Illiteracy, Obesity, Foreclosures, etc. You get the picture – there is an abundance of depressed and disgruntled people living here. I hate going to public places and being forced to witness their vicious, ugly behavior. Today, I had to go to an office supply store to purchase a specific 2013 calendar refill. As I’m walking down the main aisle in the middle of the store, I hear a woman loudly yelling “SOMEBODY HELP ME! I NEED SOME HELP! CAN ANYBODY HEAR ME? I NEED HELP!” I looked down a side aisle to see if she’s hurt, and am astounded to see her with her hands on her hips bellowing at the ceiling. Eventually, a minimum wager comes to assist her. In a nasty tone of voice she yells “I NEED TO GET SOME PRICES ON THESE…” I grit my teeth and head for the line at cash register. As I’m making my purchase, I hear from the back of the line “HEY DO YOU SELL PAPER UP THERE?” I had to sprint out of the store before I spontaneously unleashed my fists of fury on her. Yesterday, I vented my grocery store fiasco, so tomorrow I’ll share my sub shop spectacle – if you can stand any more.

I think I would have my cell phone next time, take a picture of these 2 idiots and call the police about an assault....these guys might start to escalate the confrontation. Wouldn't want you to get hurt

Had to share this: We have a certain "type" of men in our neighborhood that like to block women and make us walk around them. They will also pull a stare down at times if the woman doesn't look like she is going to move. I have intentionally walked into my fair share (I don't get intimidated).

Anyway, I was out with my Fuzzy Personal Trainer (she's about 60 lbs). And two guys on the trail cross to block my path and puff up. Ok, here we go they expect me to move to the other side. In my infinite stubbornness I decided to push between them, not thinking about the dog. As we got close they tightened ranks and FPT nailed on in the crotch with her nose at full speed. Then she turns to jump on the other one. He back off and starts yelling at me in Spanish! I just said don't speak that and kept walking. When I looked over my should, he was helping his buddy up and they were moving very slowly away. Maybe blocking a chick that is bigger than you with a large black dog wasn't the brightest move?

Well at least someone caught it, but I doc really should have noticed that one, it isn't even that weird of a allergy.

One of my coworkers said something that I couldn't help laughing right in his face at.
"It is always done like that unless it isn't" talking about a project we have been working on. Really helpful there.

Well, this "dumb thing" didn't happen today. It happened last Monday when I had a surgical procedure done. I had done all the pre-op at the hospital. I answered the same questions - particularly those about allergies, what seemed like a zillion times. The day of the procedure I got the bright orange wristband showing my allergies to sulpha drugs. The doctor prescribed an antibiotic, so my husband took it to the drugstore to get it filled. Guess what.....it was for a sulpha-based drug. The pharmacist caught it, and after a three-ring circus, they were able to get it straightened out with the doctor. Sheesh - what's the point of alerting the medical staff about drug allergies if they're not going to pay attention?!?!?
