If i could strangle a teenager, it would be a small one as I have sausage fingers!
And anyone of them with a spray can!

Well that describes my experience yesterday perfectly. I had chosen to walk to work for exercise. Walking briskly along the road I come to a small group of school uniformed teenagers. One of whom has chosen to stand casually smack bang in the middle of the narrow pavement.

He is facing me so can clearly see me walking toward him from some distance away. There is no room to get past him without stepping into the road. So I continue walking until I am within about about 12" at which point it is obvious he is not getting out of the way. I say to him 'Could you step out of the way', which he does but then gives me a few words of abuse about 5M down the road, which I ignore.

Was he playing some bizarre game of teenage pavement chicken? Or are teenagers just that stupid?

Re: If I could strangle a teenager

Teenagers can have multi personas, the little darlins'.

my two are now both in their mid 20's and are model adults but sheeeeeeeeeeeeesh could they be difficult - there again weren't we all?

I remember very clearly a BBQ at ours with friends, many of whom are teachers, and one of them waxing lyrical about what a delightful child "the wean" was (this from someone was isn't given to false praise) and both Sue and turning to one another and spraying the beer!!! You must be joking, we said, she's a wee horror? No, no, I'm telling you everyone in the staff room remark on her! Are you sure we're talking about the same child here??

Only goes to show, they have a different personility in and out of the home environment.

I'm sure many could be medically confirmed as schitzophrenic. My daughter switches from being sweet and agreeable to the devil's daughter in no time and for no apparent reason. Luckily the devil's daughter bits are becoming less frequent (she's nearly 17) so we're hoping the worst is over.
