Is there no limit to stupidity?

I had to laugh when I saw this story, about a mother who bought a joke sweat-shirt for her little boy, with the slogan ‘I’m the reason there is a naughty list’. Not surprisingly her son was upset when he read the slogan and, she says ‘Completely blamed it on me’ – well yes – who else? However she is trying to blame it on the shop for selling it, saying they should ‘review their policy’ about selling these items for children who can read. Honestly does she actually want someone else to do the thinking for her? Thankfully her little boy does seem to be more intelligent than his Mum so I guess there may be a little bit of hope for the next generation. All rights reserved. © Text copyright Fleur 2017.

Clearly this mom is not the brightest bulb. She is very clearly part of the ME generation....everyone else is to blame for any mistakes she might make.

When people try to wriggle out of responsibility for their own actions, that really winds me up!

Very much the ME generation. I'm stuck for words but I have to believe it.

The most concerning thing about this whole story is the fact she didn't realize her six year old son would be able to read it. There's a parent keeping on top of her child's education!!!!!!

Well she already proved that she is not a very bright mom buying the swat-shirt for his son, now pretending that the others think for her, she confirms she is totally stupid.

You're right, if she knew her son at all she would have realised that this would upset him.

Blaming the shop for selling something she didn't even have to buy? Unbelievable.

Exactly - she realises she's made a stupid purchase then tries to blame the shop!

I can understand her buying one and can even understand someone complaining that they are unsuitable to be sold, but not one person doing both.

And then having the nerve to blame the shop for her bad choices - that takes the biscuit!

This article is a perfect example of everything that is wrong with our society today. Nobody wants to take accountability for their actions; it is always somebody else's fault for everything that happens and every decision we make in our lives. I guess you just can't fix stupid.

I find it weird, when I was growing up what I wanted most was to be independent and to be responsible for myself. Now it seems that no-one else wants that!

@Fleura That is very true, I wanted the same thing growing up. I can tell you, both of my kids are not like that at all. They try to shun responsibility and independence as much as they can, now matter what values I try to instill in them. But I must admit, my own kids aren't quite as bad as most of their friends and peers. Every day I preach to them about taking responsibility and accountability for their actions. Sometimes it even seems to work with them, but it's still nothing like when we were growing up!

That's like the person who sued a restaurant for making unhealthy food...... Don't they have common sense to pick what they buy or don't buy?

Maybe, but it's a sensitive age I guess. He obviously still believes in Father Christmas.

The whole story seems utterly silly. To be honest, I'm amazed that many kids today even believe in Santa when most of them are sitting at their own tablets and have the world of the internet at their fingers at such young ages.
