    I hear that one. Working in customer service for half my life I have definitely seen both sides, the raised version and the no clue version. When I got married, my wife thought I was nuts cause I wanted to write thank you notes to everyone who sent gifts.

    I hate the fact that my dad is ASE certified and has worked for 20 dam long, hard years at a certain big name muffler shop and he don't get paid squat!

    I make more than him sitting on my arse all day long, while his job has killed him softly, not to mention all the stress on him at 60!

    I wish he realized he could do something else....feel bad for they guy. He don't know anything else...as he was at a previous muffler shop for 10 years and before that worked for the steel mill, which are completely obsolete around here nowadays...

    Good thread, even if it is older than my young son.

    It goes along with the fact that parents aren't teaching their kids manners anymore. My childrens' friends' parents are always amazed at how mannerly our children are. I hear it all the time: "He shook my hand when he met me" or "She is just so friendly, most of Amanda's* friends don't even speak to me!" What the heck? I'm incredibly proud of my kids but disappointed that it's not universal to teach your children to be mannerly and respectful.

    I think customer service stems directly from learning manners and respect at home. My daughter, who is 17, works in a restaurant as a server. Her managers tell me all of the time how great she is and how they didn't have to train her at all in respect to "customer service". They send HER to other servers' tables to solve problems. While I am proud of her, it's sad that they can rely on a 17 year old like that!

    This is one of my BIGGEST pet peeves. I blame the parents! I've even started to teach some of my kids friends to say things like "Thank you for having me over for dinner" or "It's nice to meet you Mrs. Smith*, Samatha* always says such great things about her Grandma." It's as if I'm teaching them a foreign language.

    *Names have been changed to protect the innocent!!
    That's because the gov is so far up parents arse's trying to tell us what we can and cannot do to raise our children. The problem with society is parents don't beat the **** out of their children anymore. I dare some cop or goverment agency to come tell me I cant spank my child. They didn't incubate my child for 9 months nor did they give birth to him. My dad whipped my **** when I did wrong. So I shall do the same

    Only suitable for minors?:

    People used to think it was necessary to "spank" adult members of the community, college students, military trainees, and prisoners. In some countries they still do. In our country, it is considered sexual battery if a person over the age of 18 is "spanked", but only if over the age of 18.

    For one thing, because the buttocks are so close to the anal region, sex organs, and so multiply linked to sexual nerve centers, striking them can trigger powerful and involuntary sexual stimulus in some people. There are numerous physiological ways in which it can be intentionally or unintentionally sexually abusive, but I won't list them all here. One can read the testimony, documentation, and educational resources available from the website of Parents and Teachers Against Violence In Education.

    Child bottom-battering vs. DISCIPLINE:

    Child bottom-battering (euphemistically labeled "spanking","swatting","switching","smacking", "paddling",or other cute-sounding names) for the purpose of gaining compliance is nothing more than an inherited bad habit.

    Its a good idea for people to take a look at what they are doing, and learn how to DISCIPLINE instead of hit.

    There are several reasons why child bottom-battering isn't a good idea. Here are some good, quick reads recommended by professionals:

    Plain Talk About Spanking
    by Jordan Riak

    The Sexual Dangers of Spanking Children
    by Tom Johnson

    by Lesli Taylor MD and Adah Maurer PhD

    Just a handful of those helping to raise awareness of why child bottom-battering isn't a good idea:

    American Academy of Pediatrics,
    American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry,
    American Psychological Association,
    Center For Effective Discipline,
    Churches' Network For Non-Violence,
    Nobel Peace Prize recipient Archbishop Desmond Tutu,
    Parenting In Jesus' Footsteps,
    Global Initiative To End All Corporal Punishment of Children,
    United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child.

    In 31 nations, child corporal punishment is prohibited by law (with more in process). In fact, the US was the only UN member that did not ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The US also has the highest incarceration rate in the world.

    The US states with the highest crime rates and the poorest academic performance are also the ones with the highest rates of child corporal punishment.

    There is simply no evidence to suggest that child bottom-battering instills virtue.

    Actual that's a literary mistranslation in ancient hebrew, the words of the prophets were kept on scrolls. The hebrew word for rod was meant to denote these scrolls. A more correct version of the scripture would read "Spare the word, spoil the child" (which I suppose could accurately imply either the word as in the teachings in the scriptures, or The Word, which is a reference to the foretold Savior of Judaism (or Jesus, in Christian terms)).
    Sorry, but I love bringing up that bit of biblical trivia

    That being said, the modern misinterpretation seems to hold true as well.
