Half the time they don't want to talk to me, let alone listen to me, and,…Continue

When I'm driving around a carpool of screaming ten-year-old girls, it's sometimes hard not to wanna drive the car straight into Lake Michigan.

They just look so incredibly ridiculous to me as they're wailing and screaming and flailing themselves about the floor. In fact, I've even videotaped one of my daughter's tantrums to show her just what an asshole looks like in action. Of course, she doesn't find it…Continue
