He looks like my Junior Highschool football coach. He was mean and intolerant of kids too.

Looks like a mug shot. People tend to be a pit pissed off when those are taken.

Well yeah, but you don't get those kinds of lines on your face at the drop of a hat.

That is an experienced snarl, sneer, you name it.

Guy should have been knocked hard on his ass, and probably would have been if the child's father had been there.

I agree, but watch this video that shows him in front of the judge:

He looks like he's ready to snap.

No, but we all called him a name similar to that when he was out of earshot.

Yep, I can sure sympathize with him...........uncontrollable kids in public places can cause my blood pressure to soar.

Naturally, his actions can't be condoned..........but I sure wish I could have watched it happen...........

Amen! Worse place for that is in a restaurant. Second is in the ER. Man, a couple of weeks ago waiting for a doc to stitch me up I wanted to put my shoe up a kids ass...and his mother's.

At least in WalMart, you can flee to the other end of the big box.
This fella looks like he's trying his best to do a Clint Eastwood make my day snarl.

I know. The worst I've experienced are crying children in airplanes. This poor guy could have made a run for an exit. The only escape you get on a plane are your headphones or the lav.

Or the emergency exit, but that's a bit impractical.

Worst place is on an airplane.

You can walk out of a restaurant and refuse to pay. I've done it.

An ER might be a tie with the airplane...........but, if things were truly bad...........the sounds of the kid would be irrelevant.

hopefully he will see how he likes being slapped around in the big house. What is the point in slapping a 2 year old, they dont understand anything, if ait had any effect at all it would have been the kid cried even more, that is completely intolerable. now a 14 year old on the other hand...... A good smack now and then would do some good
