"We drove past a motorcyclist on the Interstate a couple of days ago,
who was typing into a device with a monitor (I think it was a laptop)
while he was 'driving' his bike (he was in the middle lane). "

thinking that it's only a matter of time before smartphones have
"VERY BAD MOTHER" alerts ;-)

I think I get that whenever I go by the local High School.

Girl dressed in backless shirt, she must have a very bad mother.
Teen boy wearing his pants past his hips, his mother is very bad at
doing her parental duties.
Kids obsessing over trendy stupid cliques and ignoring their important
lifetime chance of gaining employable job skills, their mother is supremely
poor at preparing them for the realities of a working life.

Heck, every time I shop at Wal-Mart I look at adult folks who had very
little useful life skills (hygiene, personal presentation, manners, and
kindness) and I say to myself "ALERT! THIS PERSON WAS THE PRODUCT OF A VERY
BAD MOTHER."
