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..
