Re: F. . . Parents who let their children run wild

My 2cents: when someone says:"not to sound ..." to me I figure they probably are about to make a ... type statement. If someone says "to tell you the truth" to me that preps me for a lie (or else I think they are so used to lying that they need to emphasize the truthfulness of this particular statement)

edit: sorry Matty hadn't seen your comment yet...

You can see the undertone where this may offend folks. Really just say you are sorry and move on.
Exactly, that's the one that was offensive. Plus Trample the Elderly's post about hispanics going to english speaking movies.

The first post was indeed just stating an observation, that babies in movies most often belong to hispanics. I didn't think it needed to be said, but that didn't bother me all that much. It was the bolded one above that got me.

Keep in mind there's at least one mod on this board with hispanic background.

I have an uncle that uses that a lot. Not that he is a liar, rather he says many things in jest, so when he is not joking around he will start with that phrase to validate its sincerity.

I say "as a matter of fact" when I'm about to give my opinion.

Of course, my opinion should be taken as nothing less than irrefutable!

LOL

I'm Hispanic and I didn't find what Snake said offensive. Also, most of the Central Americans that I know can't speak English very well. So they rent DVDs in Spanish.

The whole point of the thread was rude behaviour in public with parents letting their children run wild. Those Hispanic kids in the movie theatre weren't raised right either.

Y'all should stop being so sensitive. If we can't speak our minds with friends then we're losing our freedom.

Yeah but you also think it's cool to mace somebody for talking to your girl a little off, so your opinion is a bit skewed.

Calling your girlfriend a cunt isn't exactly a little off. If you allow gutter snipes to talk to your friends and family like a bunch of dogs so be it. I'll not tolerate it. Etiquette and the Law be damned.

It applies a lot this month, must be all the pre draft jitters that got folks on edge around here.
