In 3…2….1… Let the whining begin!
Isn’t there a Bible passage or something that says “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live”? Ya? Well I think we should modify it slightly so that instead of “witch” it says “whiny little bitch” (or WLB, for convenience). All in favor say “Aye”!
Do you think that’s the natural pitch of her voice or is that perhaps a learned behavior?
WLB: “Mom I want a pony” (like a normal human being).
WLB: “But mooooom”
Mom: “Fine, just STFU”
How embarrassing that must have been for her mother. This isn’t some 10 year old throwing a fit. This is a teenager! And while they’re not exactly known for their decision making skills, I would like to think that by the time puberty hits they’d have, at least, a firm grasp of the concept of respecting others. Actually, I would hope the whole respect thing would be even more ingrained because she’s a rider. But maybe that’s because I was always taught, and firmly believe, that riding is a privilege. About a month after I started riding, when I was 9, I started helping out with stalls (not sure how helpful I was…) to get extra lessons. Does that not happen anymore? What’s with all these kids getting horses and not even knowing how to clean a stall?! That just seems so wrong to me. That’s probably another topic for another day.
Back to the video! I love this judge. She is totally right. My favorite line is the rider’s response when the judge says that she’s the judge and she makes the rules: “yeah but I’m riding”.
Soooo, do you want to give out the ribbons then? Why is that even a valid answer? You’re in a specific class where you’re being judged on a specific skill – you don’t enter a dressage show and jump in and out of the arena and expect a pretty blue ribbon because you left all the markers standing! If you’re paying someone to judge you, don’t you think you should listen to them?!
Is it not the true mark of a spoiled brat to say things like “but that’s not fair!” and to think that apologizing makes everything alright? Sometimes sweetheart, sorry ain’t good enough.
