parents

Busybody parents are screaming at their children's elementary school teachers over grades, incessantly text-messaging their kids during the school day, and trying to micromanage their little darlings' college experience. What to do about them? Confiscate their cell phones? Partially lobotomize them to make them calm down a little? Maybe shoot one or two of them on national TV to set an example?

This is the sort of parent that ends up raising spoiled brats that become young adults who drive over three-day-old newspapers in the driveway because they're too stupid to read them, too dumb to realize they could just cancel the friggin' subscription and save a few bucks since they ain't reading them anyway, and too lazy to pick the damn things up.
