kids are spoiled these days

End of story. Toughen up, you little shits.

I remember when I was in elementary school (at both Heber Hunt and Horace Mann Elementary Schools in beautiful Sedalia, MO) and we got to play with these scooters during PE class. Except they weren’t plastic and they sure as hell didn’t have “safety handles”.

If you weren’t paying attention and had your fingers wrapped around the edge of the square piece of plywood, you may as well kiss those knuckles goodbye. But you know what? You LEARNED FROM THE PAIN.

Kids these days have it way too easy with all this safety nonsense. Next thing you know, they’re going to come up with bicycle helmets or pads you’re supposed to wear on your knees when skateboarding.

  1. Ooooooooh my hands ache every time I see one of those things. I can’t believe my friends and I still have all of our fingers. What was worse is that when I was little I had REALLY long hair so on top of finger-smashing I used to get my hair caught in the casters when there was a collision.

    In hindsight elementary school gym class was a deathtrap.

What's up?
