Ha ha. I honestly didn’t notice, but hey, it was still on topic with TrumpT3‘s post. How about that. I’m glad you two little thread police are on your toes.

Katie, you are speaking to the wonderful skateparkmom. You couldn’t possibly think that she is so stupid as to not notice that? 🙂

”…Seriously, these little kids in hoboken are out of control…

These little kids may not be from Hoboken. Take a photo of them. Even pretend to take a photo with your cell and they’ll slink away. If you have a photo, send it to the police – we’re a small town and the kids will probably be easily identified if they’re from here.

I wouldn’t advise talking to these kids if they are threatening people and speaking foully to girls. Why not get the local cop and point the kids out. That way, you can slink away without the brat recognizing you, and the cops can handle it. It’s a small town and what if they see you again, when they’re in a larger group?

Also, I would like to say, Ive been asked for donations and candy many times without being sworn at, so obviously not all kids (or people) are like that.
