Better to distract the masses with talk of gear than to indulge the impulses of WINE SNOBS!!!

Yeah, sounds about right. I'm sure he usually hangs out with the other three-year-olds over in the FF section. Or worse, in the N&R kindergarden - tantrum galore!
Well... apart from volume, he wasn't actually very good at it. When throwing a tantrum, you've got to stay on message, stick to your talking points, and play the guilt cards. He was throwing everything at the wall that he could think of, to see what would stick. When his mom said "this is your last chance, or we are leaving", he babbled something to the effect of "look at me look at me look at me" (as in "look at me when I am talking to you", not "hey, look at me!"). If that's the best he can do, he won't last five minutes in N&R.

Edit: I wonder what would have happened if I had walked over and yelled, "BORIS CLETO'D!!!!!!!" at a three-year-old?

Mrs Rupert used to yank our two boys up and spank their little butts no mater where we were when they got out of control. Of course, that was long ago.....nowadays that would get you life in prison!

Regards!

Yeah, I was thinking back to when Mom would ask "do you want to go to the car?" No. I did not want to go to the car. Going to the car was not a fun experience. My friends have said it to their kids, although their version just means sitting and being bored. I guess it's effective, as neither of their kids have become axe murderers - yet.

My dad was blind, so he was afraid to spank us kids, worried he would hit us in a wrong spot and do damage.
But he could whip his belt off like drawing a sword as a threat.
Mom would spank us occasionally, but mostly chewed our butts out.
One time after a long butt chewing my brother said, Mom, would you just whip me?

My 3 kids got spanked, and turned out as well as I could ever hope.

Heh. When we were "asked" about going out to the car or anywhere besides where our little butts were parked, we knew that the line had been crossed and we were going to suffer some consequences...

None fatal though but enough to make me buy a red K-50! And NOT enough to make me buy the K-3

Reminds me of the story of the two hikers who comes across a bear. The one drops to the ground and pulls off his boots and pulls on a pair of running shoes. The other says: "What the hell are you doing?!?!? You can't outrun a bear!" The hiker now with running shoes says: "I don't need to outrun the bear - I only need to outrun you!"
