I don't dislike kids, really. I just don't want any of my own. So, this rant isn't about all kids, just one. Not too long ago, a new family moved into the neighborhood. The parents seem OK. The mother seems like a bit of a narcissist and manages to turn everything into something about her, so I really don't want to deal with her unless I have to. The dad appears to work a lot. They have a boy who's probably 9 or 10. He's completely rude and disrespectful in general. I didn't really care until the other day when the kid screamed at me. He was standing in the middle of the road with a few other boys. When I drove by, the other boys went to the sidewalk like they are supposed to. This other kid stared me down, stood between my car and the driveway, and just refused to move. I tapped my horn, and he raised his arms and yelled, "Are you honking at ME? Are you SERIOUSLY honking at me???" I got out of the car and told him that he needs to move, and it's not safe for him to be playing in the middle of the road. He muttered something under his breath and walked away, looking back to shoot darts at me through his eyes. Honestly... Does this incident warrant a conversation with the kid's mom or should I just leave it alone and hope it doesn't happen again?
