The 11-year old: Can I please play RTC on the computer?
Him: Would it help if I said please?
Me: (lying) No.
Me: Well I don’t want you in front of that computer all night. You can play until 6:15.
Me: Now you need to be able to tell time. To time yourself. I don’t want to have to come in there at like, seven and tell you to get off. Understand?
Him: No problem.
Me: (at 7 p.m.) Get off!
Happens every time. Like clockwork. Well at least something has to do with time.

Alas, you, have once again missed the point. What is, indeed!, blasphemous about the post on the disproportionate response. I am the bad-guy on this one–while you are classically teen-like. D’oh.
So true, so true. I’m not blessing the post above with a comment for it is blasphemy
