Street chicken

And a little ranty post I've been holding in for a long time. Nearly every time I log in to LJ, a commercial for French's fried onion rings plays. Mom is calling her two pre-teen kids to dinner. The girl, reading, ignores her. The boy, playing his video game, ignores her. Then she tells them dinner is onion-crusted chicken and they both give each other a really knowing look, and come running.

If I raised two smug, overprivileged little creeps like that who never listened to me, I'd throw their damn dinner in the street.

That's all.

I agree.
If I had done something like that as a kid... I wouldn't have gotten dinner.

I just can't imagine sitting there and not answering my mother. She woulda been all over me. The screams would still be ringing in my ears ;-)

Erm... I think I have Firefox sufficiently locked down that I've never seen this commercial... heck, I didn't even realize that LJ had commercials!

Really? Commercials play all the time on LJ for me. I'm jealous you don't have to endure them.

Heh, it's better than the 'five secrets to a flat stomach' and other weight loss ads I get constantly. It's like the intarwebs can read my mind . . . or see my waistline!

OH GOD, and the stomach is sometimes animated, so you have to see it getting fat and skinny, fat and skinny.

I think I may have even clicked that before out of morbid curiosity. I guess that means the ad is working.

Occasionally I get a similar reaction. Not quite as bad as that though. I just figure that I've told them their dinner is ready and if they choose not to hear me, they get cold dinner. And should they whine or not eat it, they get NOTHING! Funny how it doesn't often happen...

Essentially, my kids are angels pretty good.

I like to think that's the kind of mom I'd be if I'd had kids.

The way I spoil the cats suggests differently.

LOL I never gets ads on LJ either, but I have seen that ad on TV. I call and as long as I know she heard me, I suppose she'll eat when she gets there. It's not really an issue though, at least it's never been that I can think of. Plus she's usually on the computer with headphones which is 2.5 feet from the dining room table so I can just give her a smack upside the head if she's not paying attention. :-) I'm such a loving Mom.

Love your style. Tough love works so well.

Dinner? What dinner? Bitches gonna forge for their own damn food.

*coughs*

<.< This is clearly why I do not have children.

Ha ha! I thought "this is why I don't have kids" would also have been an appropriate alternate title for the post!

Do you get commercials when you logg in on your old LJ? I don't see any, but if I remember correctly they kind of gradfathered in us with old non paid accounts when they started with commercials so we didn't have to have them.

Cripes, it was a whole ordeal to even log into my old LJ. Apparently it is free of stupid ads, though! :)

I get all kinds of commercials on LJ. I've seen that one a lot. My brother and I would just get cold dinner if we didn't come to the table promptly.

I see ones for bathroom cleaning products very frequently, too. A day or two ago, I got a very loud Clearasil one with no mute button attached. That was extra-annoying.
