Would you be mad or jealous?

So my local Skate Park closed a week ago....but today as I driving by I see a bunch of punk ass kids (correct term from a 51 year old) about 12-15 years old riding their Scooters in the park.

The park is fenced in by 8ft chainlink and clearly closed and locked - at 1st I was like: "Holy shit! It's still open" so I pulled in only to see the gate clearly locked.

So now I'm pissed because I'm thinking if one of these hardcore criminals gets hurt it could cause the town to maybe shutdown the park- so I'm like "I should get out and do my best Beauford T. Justice impression and have these Scooter Scallions arrest themselves." (Note profile picture for Mr. Justice)

Then I was thinking these Rebels should enjoy their time till someone yells at them. The park is directly next to a well used Recreation Center so their time was probably limited.

So I let it be and drove off.

So......bust them or give them a thumbs up?

What you should have done was scold them for playing with children's toys and direct them to a more appropriate mode of transportation.

Re: Would you be mad or jealous?

I tend to stay away from meddling in the affairs of others. I also avoid measuring my emotions against the ongoings of others.

Re: Would you be mad or jealous?

Would much rather these punk ass kids riding scooters and enjoying themselves vs causing trouble on the streets.

Re: Would you be mad or jealous?

Ha! Found it funny how many would join! I should have noted it's an unwritten rule if you get caught sneaking in it's a year's ban from the park so it's not worth the risk for me.


And I'm sorry but Kurt wins the best answer- as much as I saw his post and cringed and has utterly completely nothing to do with the topic yet so gingerly squeezed into the topic in Kurt's method of madness!

Only thing I'd have said is to remind them of the rule about bans..for their own good.  And tell them good for them at least wanting to do something constructive.

That and hit me up, I'll make the drive there too!

Re: Would you be mad or jealous?

Maybe I'm different but stuff like that doesn't bother me and I don't really meddle in other people's affairs. I also don't make it a habit to hang out with kids on scooters. Hell, I'd go out of my way to not be around anybody on a scooter.

Re: Would you be mad or jealous?

Generally I think live and let live.  But unfortunately in this case the few could get the park closed for good, so that might be something to remind others of.
