WTF is going on with people nowadays

I dont consider myself a old guy, 29 this year, but seriously wtf is going on with this newer generation. So I am driving through my neighborhood and this kid no older than 16 runs out of his yard in front of my car and I slam on the brakes to avoid hitting him. He looks and me and runs towards me screaming f-u and I will f-ing kill you if you hit me. I drive off thinking wow, let me stop and talk to his parents on the way back and see how they want to handle this issue. They just blow it off saying that "oh thats just the way he is." I say to them sorry I dont think you should just blow the off, as that is a serious threat. Some people may not be as calm as I am when he says that to them. Long story short, I end up filing a formal complaint with the sheriffs office, who just tell me to call them back if he does it again. Sorry for the rant but when I was younger I did some stupid stuff, hell I still do stupid stuff, but telling a complete stranger that you are going kill them is too far.

Hmm...young kids being cocky and trying to act tough? I've never heard of that...

Kids now days just seem to know how to run their mouths, but when it comes to it most of them cry with a good pinch...

Next time rev it up a little in neutral then take off and stop short, get out of the car and see what he does.

Cuz the stupid Gov't has decided you can't properly "correct" your childrens attitude...
so now they take it with them to the streets....
Sorry state of affairs....

'06, Smoked windscreen, Galfer S/S brake lines, GiPro TRE, Speedohealer, Custom lighted fender eliminater, A&R Baffles, "Real" Ohlins Damper, added a seat cowl, so now I'm a true 'poser'..... Power mods - Why? Too much for me already!

I don't know what everyone thinks but I blame the parents for the way their kids act sure the kids can think for themselves but it all boils down to the parent's teaching them, as in this case they just blew it off like it was nothing. Again I blame it on the parenting skills that these kids have. just my 2 cents
