why does the weekend fly past at a speed of a squirrel being catapulted into the air? why? and the week goes by slightly slower, but today is Thursday, tomorrow is Friday and the weekend begins again :))))

anyway the issues raised this past weekend was smoking

i was basically walking past a corner shop fiddling with my mp3, when i noticed some one was talking to me, i looked up to see a teenage girl, you know the look, huge hooped ear rings, geled down hair with a pony tail, track suite bottoms, etc...

i hadn't heard what she had said so i said 'excuse me'
to which she replied 'can you buy something for me?' waving a five pound note in my face.

'what would you like me to buy?' i said

'pack of 10 ciggs, please' with a look of desperation on her face.

to which i said 'fraid not, i wont do it'
she walked away upset but within 2 seconds had found another 'adult' to ask, and from the looks of things he didn't mind getting her what she wanted.

see things like this irritate me, the fact that certain so called adults will buy ciggs and alcohol to under aged 'children', with out a care in the world.
the shop keepers are sticking to the law (not all of them) but many adults wont blink an eye lid to buying these products to juveniles. its disgusting behaviour...
the lack of responsibility and the failure of being an example to the youngsters is seriously frightening, the fact that decent role models are quickly diminishing in our societies is a scary thing to ponder on.
role models is an extremely important element, as humans its natural to look up to some one, especially a person that you admire, but if the persons qualities are questionable then admiration can be a dangerous thing that can have drastic affects on others around.
i think next time i see an adult buying such things for children then defiantly i will report them..

Salam White African,
You go girl! I know you can do it as I recall you standing up to some bully boys over the summer. I agree with you on the responsiblity "adults" should hold to with respect to being positive examples to minors.

I do not agree with you in this point. For every generation there are role models and I think the new generation are very lucky to have many role models in their lives. Each generation has contributed a lot to humanity, look how technology now is moving in a very fast pace comparing ten years ago and improving our lives.

Yourself is a role model for the Libyan woman, just by having a blog. I might not be interested in most of Libyan blogs but to be fair they are role models for Libyans. Think positive.

"the fact that certain so called adults will buy ciggs and alcohol to under aged 'children', with out a care in the world."

You complain about this incident. In the past the same child could buy cigarettes,alcohol and drugs and no question asked.

Have a smile on your face and do not let little incidents irritate you. You are too young to have high blood pressure :-)

Most men will try get their dates tipsy or high so that they can sleep with them. Just look at the high rate of Date Rape in universities.

Women think with their hearts and Men think with............
Both ways they are in deep .......

Men Are Dogs!

wasslam ibee thanks :0)

ph thanks, it is a weak man who takes advantge of vunrable girls, very cowardly..

music lover firstly thanks for your comments, mucho appreciation :) i didnt mena there are no role models, there are, but i seriosuly belive that the numbers are reducing drasticly although i will try to think postively (the cup is always half full)

questions should be asked concerning children who bought these items in the past, and have been asked hence the laws that have come about due to this self abuse in our children.

i cant help but feel worry music lover when i see such things in our society,

monday 2 be honest i havent seen one being catapulte deither, just thought it would be pretty fast if it where to happen lol
