I am wondering how adults here (and mature teens) handle situations with teenagers who seem to be ever more out of control these days?
There always seem to be teens and groups of teens just walking around yelling crap at people, especially older people. The other day I was carrying stuff inside from my car, when a group walking past started yelling crap at me, yelling "f**king queer" among other things. Today I seen a teenager yell at a small kid "shut the F**k up" (kid was probably around 4).
This sort of stuff happens everyday around here, and seems like a common trend in the US.
I really wanted to put my fist in the face of these kids, but obviously resist the urge (or I would be in jail instead of here typing this)
How do you (or would you) handle this?
