I think this is why they invented manners. My 2yr old and 3yr old are continually ordering things from me, be it water, or chocolate or tissues. It's only by forcing them to say please and thank you which stops you from going completely round the twist, otherwise you feel like you're paying for the privilege to be a slave.

Too right - I'm the same - my 8 year old still occasionally tells me instead of asks but in the main, he is very well mannered. When he puts a foot wrong in this respect, he is told and he will apologise.

I despair when I see spoilt, cheeky kids running around - especially the expat brats you get out here. Cheeky, rude little spoilt brats with zero manners. I hate to think what their kids will be like.

Mind you - could be worse - could be in the UK where you can't punish your own kids.

If you are doing dirty work for minimum wage and you hate everything about it then you haven’t got much to looose ( are there 3 O’s or 5?).

I never trade from work so I can’t be accused of abusing my employer and the hours I work means I get a lot of market hours screen time at home, so much time that it makes no difference to say that I am a full-time trader with a part time job or vice versa.
Yup makes sense if one is one of the lucky ones to have a job they enjoy, I mean they do exist after all ;-)

In a similar vein funnily enough quite a lot of people we know have one partner with a job bringing in a steady salary covering the basics, while the other one is the risk taker striking out as an entrepreneur and bringing in the extras.

So do it like that, or have a job you enjoy providing the security, while using trading as your vehicle for providing the potential for wealth, and if one takes ones trading 100% seriously, then sure, that ought to work too as long as the commitment and complete discipline are there.

Mr & Toast, kids wise we played it safe, we "only" have a cat.

Most people over 30 will remember getting a slap or two off their mom/dad when they got out of line as kids.

This has been going on for hundreds of generations with no ill effects, in the UK, this is now illegal...

What's the result of this? More polite, well behaved kids? Or ill mannered little turds running around knowing the worse they will get is a shouting at?

I got smacked plenty as a kid, most of my friends did. My dad got hit, his dad got hit and so on and so forth.

I gave my son a smacked ass on one occasion - after he walked off in the hustle & bustle of us checking into a hotel. He walked into the garden, to the cliff edge, down the cliff steps to the beach. That was 4 years ago. Now the mention of a smacked ass is enough to keep him in line.

Of course - any liberals reading this will be aghast. Then again, it's liberals that are ruining the UK, so I couldn't really care less.

As for hitting women. Most women like a good spanking when being taken from behind, who am I to not satisfy their needs?
