OK. I'm fully aware that this may be controversial and even make people hate me but the junkies on my bus today reinforced this for me and if I don't tell the world I might just burst into a small ball of disgust and suddenly become my own grandmother (or at least sound like her!)
I haven't had a bad day today, I'm neither up nor down and generally feeling a bit flat so its hard to be my normal, happy, bouncy self (trust me I'm so happy sometimes I even annoy myself) but the incredible bus junkies still managed to get to me. They weren't the normal crowd, but whole new ones who I have never had the "pleasure" of seeing before today and unfortunately they cemented my occasional view that people should be screened before being allowed to conceive children. (I know that some poor bloke in the paper was getting grief last week for saying the same thing but its my opinion so tough) Don't get me wrong, this wasn't your usual teenage mother with 15 kids, the lady in question today was probably in her 30s (OK maybe 20s if she had aged really, really, badly) but after having her order her children on the bus she proceeded to sit and randomly swear at them for the next half hour, even at one point physically wrestling a balloon off the youngest (probably 3 or 4) and then clout the kid repeatedly for no reason other than it had the audacity to play.
Its only when I see parents acting is such chronic manners that I genuinely think that the communists got at least one thing right...a baby licence really wouldn't be such a bad thing.
