TISNF!!!!!

Is anyone else just completely tired of all the commercials on right now featuring the totally disrespectful and spoiled children and the idiot parents? The first one that comes to mind is for a cell phone company. The mom is tired of paying all the over charges for texting on her child's cell phone....

There are all sorts of problems that I can see with this scene, first the child appears to be maybe 11, she has a cell phone that her parents are paying for so that she can gab with her friends, she has time to send a ton of text messages to her friends, and finally when the child is confronted with the fact that she has been texting too much she is out of this world rude to her mom. She proceeds to argue with her mom and then when her mom, finally, takes her cell phone away she throws a tantrum and leaves the room. Seriously, is this at all a realistic scene. Maybe I am totally out of touch with reality.

Does anyone watch this commercial and think,"Thank goodness there is finally an answer to all my cell phone problems."?

Aside from the fact that the child is completely obnoxious the mother is an idiot. It started a few years ago with the shows that made the dads look like complete morons. Where everyone, including the children, just patted his head and did whatever they wanted behind his back. I thought that was horrible but now to be attacking moms!!

I don't think so.

This is a symptom of how bad the liberal media is affecting US. If my remedies for such behavior were applied today, I would be placed in some sort of consuling at the least, and in jail at the worst. Problems as portrayed by the referenced ad should not be tolerated and the rights and responsibilities of individuals towards their families should be reinforced. But, you see, I am still stuck in the late 19th century.

umm.....im sorry, but its a commercial...itsnot supposed to be completely accurate...-_-'
what's the big deal? is it really worth arguing about? its like arguing about how in "the hunchback of notre dame" when the bad guy puts down the stone the squashed bugs on the top aren't there anymore...its not important.

Doug is convinced that the addition of "The Simpsons" to television in the late '80s was the start of the downfall of Western society. Blame it on Fox.

I'm with you sister. That commercial bugs me. And yes it is "just a commercial" that the ad company KNEW parents could relate to thus validating the promotion the phone company is offering. That's why they air it. There is method to their madness.

Personally, anyone who would give a 10 or 11 year old a cell phone that they can do anything but call home in an emergency, is in my humble opinion-an idiot!!

Besides, I'm with you, Bill-if my kid acted like that, he wouldn't be sitting for a while!!
