How Cute. But Hoboken Children are Chalk Vandals!
And so are their oblivious parents!
Happy Monday, Hoboken! To start this glorious week off, is a rant that has been building up since the spring began. Just like everything else “trends” higher until it reaches the point where you need to publicly address the situation. And that situation is the proliferation of CHALK everywhere you look in Hoboken. And it has created an entire breed of Chalk Vandal Children, as I like to call them.
You see, in this instance, a little ADHD chalk energy expended on an ordinary sidewalk may seem relatively harmless – like outside of the uptown Starbucks.
“But it’s better than graffiti!” (Yeah, really?)
People know I’ve pointed out the countless incidents of graffiti here in Hoboken. Yes, it’s an eye sore, and yes, it’s a bit annoying to remove. However, it does not do ANY harm to my person.
Chalk is also an eyesore (sometimes it can make you dizzy or invoke seizures it’s so mind-numbingly bad. Remember your kids are only “cute” to YOU.) But while you can argue “the rain will wash it away,” there are still inappropriate places to allow your kids to go berserk. Like this sitting wall along the Pier at Maxwell Place pictured below.
Hey parents, did you know that people like sitting here? In the photo below – the ENTIRE sitting wall was covered, end to end with chalk. If anyone sat there, their clothing would be soiled by this cheap crap made in China. Not cool at all. Can I walk up to you and smear paint on your ass? No? Well then don’t ruin my favorite seating areas with your wild children!
Teach your kids some respect, and control where they put their stupid chalk ramblings. And maybe stop jamming so much sugar down their throats. I have never seen the “child collective” so outrageously hyperactive and uncontrollable in my life. When we have kids, they will be 100% low carb.
Have a nice day!
