Listening to DH tell me why a person shouldn't be on a wheeled device irritates the **ck out of me - as he knows. What I really don't like is my 35yo sons reaction - which I load on DH.

As for the 'phone absorbed', I beep. The high pitched sounds usually work. Course it irritates the **ck out of DH. 2-fer

Mine too! What has happened to common courtesy in our world today? But I see this type of behavior on TV news all the time. I people feel they have to belittle someone else to make their selves seem important.

While I appreciate the sentiment - and agree - I hope you'd wait until back in the room to belt him so I don't have to experience it.

THIS was exactly my thought.
The kid should have apologized. What lesson was learned by him...that mommy will always go to bat for him?

I am sorry that happened to your wife . Uncommon at wdw. I have often references to people’s weight using in a scooter. I heard a dad say to his young son “look at that miss piggy falling off the sides “ They both laughed .
This Miss Piggy was tempted to run them over .

Another comment I have hear was during an exit from Fantasmic was “ why all the scooters ? Why not make them wait? “.

I thought to my self why not let them go first . Now I leave during the fireworks so I can beat the crowd .

Not likely. He’d get a backhand to the arm. That said, he would never do it.

When running, if people walking are blocking the whole path, I will wait until I am right behind them, and yell "on your left." Fun to watch them jump

Cheers.

We had a similar (though non-Disney) experience a few weeks ago when I brought my kids and a few friends down to the Cape for low tide pools & sunset at Mayflower Beach. My 15 year old, who has ASD, has become very passionate about trash and recycling, and he brings a pincher & trash/recycling bags everywhere we go so he can clean up. As we were leaving the beach that night, I was several feet behind my kids & their friends, and a group of teenagers was making fun of my son & one of them asked the others if they saw the "retarded kid picking up trash."

I wanted to strangle him, but them I remembered:

1) My "retarded kid" is a talented artist with straight As in his Honors/AP classes
2) My "retarded kid" has a hobby that occasionally inconveniences me but is focused on helping the environment
3) I have too much joint pain- probably wouldn't get a good grip anyway
4) I hate when people say "retarded," but I would never actually inflict harm on anyone

I didn't say anything (this time) because I didn't want to cause a scene that might end up making my son feel self-conscious, but if they were 30 feet ahead, I probably would have.

I’m sorry this happened. What a tool.

As for everyone talking about belting the kid and stuff like that, I hope you are just making a joke. As someone that lives with and works with youth physically beaten, I can give you a few simple realities:

1.) It doesn’t work. You just think it does and it feels like justice.
2.) It perpetuates a cycle. The violence will likely be returned to future children andr spouses.

This is when a bunch of anecdotal responses like to chime in and say “kids are soft today” and “my dad did that to me and I turned out fine.” Anecdotal evidence is not equal to statistical evidence.

I was at a dinner on a road trip driving through Idaho. We ate dinner with a couple of late teens at a Teppanyaki restaurant.

My 5 year old said after bragging about a gulp of water she took after pretending to be a fish with big cheeks “Daddy, I swallowed it all.” The teen girl mimicked a blowjob motion to her boyfriend and whispered to her friend.

It was the end of the meal and I handled the way I felt best. I asked my wife and daughter to go to the car. I stared them both and let them know exactly what I heard them say and do. I reminded them that they aren’t as clever or as quiet as they thought. At this point, my voice was firm and I was going to gauge their initial reaction based on what I would say next and since they had the “deer in headlights pantshitter look” I left it at that. I reminded them that they are lucky I am a levelheaded person and that their mouth would get them into real trouble one day if they didn’t wise up. They apologized. I accepted. End of story.
