*please wear your flame proof judgey pants*

What things do you see often, that really shock you?

For example, my friend uploaded a video to facebook of her doing some thing(playing with her baby), and in the back ground I can hear her toddler (he's 3ish) son moaning, her reply to him in a very loud voice "shut the fuck up"

which left me shock

comments on this video - from her mother "delete this off here now before the social get a phone call" hmm

So, what shocks you?

i dont like kids being sworn at, but sadly not shocked by it sad

i was shocked by a pro anorexia website i stumbled on once

i am shocked sometimes by how little time some people actually spend with their kids

People swearing at their children.

Being offered a can of Special Brew when I visit people at home to carry out a benefit check. At 9.30 in the morning!

People who let their dogs lick them of their face, Urghhhh!

I went to a baby group for under one year olds a few weeks ago and i saw a woman give her little boy a few swigs of monster energy drink- My judgy pants were hoiked up very high.

people hitting children, especially if they are calm and think it is an OK thing to do

people swearing at children

people being very drunk in public in the daytime

the way teenage girls dress, especially in winter

the price of cheese

The fact that we continue to tolerate being screwed over by successive governments.

How downright mean and rude people are on here sometimes, and I hope they aren't so cruel and heartless in rl

The two women that stand at the school gates on the path smoking. Every. Day.

So all the children walk through all the smoke. I've asked them to move about a dozen times. They ignore me. The school say as they are on a foot path they can do nothing some people are just fucking stupid

1.People that take it upon themselves to comment loudly/judge on how much others' spend on their kids clothes/toys/activities and/or holidays, bags, shoes-delete as applicable!

2. Parents whacking/screaming obscenities at kids in public-always makes me wonder what the hell gets meted out to these kids in private......

3. Anyone (young or ahem more mature) with more muffin than Starbucks, wearing a cropped top/hipsters

4. Text speak

5. Children with numerous cavaties......bad teeth in an adult is also a bugbear of mine, but I have a particular rod up my arse about this-even more so than obesity in youngsters

1. How selfish a nation we are becoming...I actually find it quite depressing - each man for himself and sod the rest!!

2. The sights I see walking down southend high street....once saw a guy standing on his head....his head was in a bucket??? Wierd!

3. How long it is taking me to get a dental appointment!

That news story about the young parents who thought it'd be funny to gaffer tape their baby to the wall was pretty shocking.

How quickly loo rolls get used in my house.

The price of Marmite.

Illegitimate Fri 24-Jun-11 16:27:09

Oh and the price of kinder eggs don my local shop. 85p ffs!

Also men in cycling shorts when the lycra has worn a bit thin confused

when david cameron declares we're all in this together - to think he can actually stand and witter in when he has never known what it is like to not be financially secure and have no money worries

and how many parents act towards their children, no longer shocks me but makes me very sad

dressing children in designer clothes, if you need to show to the world that you are considerably richer than others drape yourself in labels not your children, let them choose if they feel it is necessary to when they are older

How little empathy gets shown and how selfish society is.

Young girls dressed like hookers.

How hostile some young women seem to be to any woman over 50. Simple self interest makes that soooo stupid.

Freakishly territorial parents someone touched my child- oh dear lord, save me....

People who suspect every man on his own in any situation to be a pedophile. Unless they fancy him. Then he is great with kids.
