Or are they? If my daughter had her heart set on that toy, and it was the last one, you'd have to pry it from my cold, dead hands.

Yeah, I know, teach kids good life lessons blah, blah, blah. I have every day of the year that I do that. Not every holiday has to be a life lesson. If my love for her makes me make the occasional decision that isn't a stellar example of perfect parenting, that is the lesson for that day.

E: I just had a great Thanksgiving with all my kids and grandkids. All healthy (physically and mentally). We all laughed together and no one was stoned or pushing an agenda. Looking forward to it again at Christmas. When all you idealistic young kids, with your unique insights on life, get to that point, get back to me. I have nothing to prove to anyone on an anon internet site. I have plenty of regrets in my life, my family isn't one of them. You guys are hilarious, thanks for the laughs.

Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. Matthew 7:5

Or you could be a super real man and build your daughter a little car with an electric motor. That would be way better than some shitty fisher price car.

But yeah, if you're first to take an item from the shelf in a store and someone tries to grab it from you, damn straight you should stand your ground.

If that represents your personal experience, maybe the problem was you. My degreed daughters who are traditional mothers raising well-adjusted sons and daughters don't have time for memes. They're busy being contributing members of an American society.

You could just, ya know, pay a few extra bucks for it another day and not be a degenerate. But if you wanna be a Jew go ahead.

The lesson I take from it is to not buy at all.
