yuppie breeding ground

Overheard at the local playground by a yuppie mommy (with WAAAAYYY too much enthusiasm and wild applause):

GOOD SLIDING, JAKE!!! GOOD JOB!!!

Oh, for Pete’s sake. All that kid did was obey the laws of gravity. Must we compliment our children for their every little triumph? Wait until Jake finds out that the world isn’t all that impressed with his accomplishments.

"GO JAKEY! YEAH! HIT THAT BALLL! WOOOO YEAH!"

Daisy: Have you been to the same playground in New Jersey? It's uncanny!

Jo: “Jakey” looked to be all of 3 years old and is too young for that nonsense. So surprised to see you mention baseball. Is it catching on in the UK?

You know, he could be a child with "issues" and you are making fun of the poor thing.

Or not.

LOL at the post.

Here's another cheer for "Jakey":

Way to shit your pants Jakey! Yeah! Way to go, my big boy!

Now, excuse me whilst I go puke.

I was wondering why I just got a "great job!" certificate in the mail for sliding, when I hadn't been on a slide in 35 years. That explains it!
