I was walking out to my car Wednesday and heard a kid sitting on the brick wall say "Hey bitch." (Not to me--to a girl of his acquaintance) I winced and went on. Yesterday I heard the same kid do it again and I stopped and said "Sweetie, do you know what appropriate means?" He said he didn't. I explained that it meant... there was a time and a place for everything. I asked the young woman if she appreciated being disrespected that way and she said she did not. THEN her little friend says "Yeah, she don't want to hear that shit." I looked at her and said "Can you at least say 'stuff'?" She laughed and said "stuff!"
