A Return To The Old Form

I found a few things at a flea on Sunday, I've just been too lazy to capture their images and post.
In the meantime, this just happened.
A pair of teenage boys were coming into the store and dragging their bikes with them.
"I'm sorry, you can't bring them in here. This is a store, not a garage."
I hear one of the boys mumble something and then the other one said, "This FUCKING guy, I'm not getting my fucking bike stolen".
They then attempted to wedge their bikes in the area between the two entry doors.
"Guys, you can't do that, it's a safety hazard". More cursing from them. I should mention that I had a fella in here with his two under age 5 kids. I can not stand how it's become acceptable for people to act like they're on an episode of Jerry Springer 24/7.
So they put the bikes outside, and walk in with a couple of trade ins. (only one of them had trades, so it seems reasonable that the other one could wait with the bikes, doesn't it?).
I say, "You can take your trades elsewhere. I don't have to put up with children cursing me out and being disrespectful."
"I didn't say anything! I didn't curse you out!"
"You didn't"? You didn't say 'This effing guy'? I'm a liar on top of whatever else you said?"
"If you are worried about your bike getting stolen, buy a lock. Now you can either apologize for being so rude, or you can go elsewhere."
"Thank you. You're too old to be going around like a three year old and throwing a tantrum because you can't get your way. Be an adult, not a baby."
From then on, you'd think the kid was in church. All "yes, sir" "please, sir" "thank you, sir".
So there are some kids who do know their manners, but maybe they just need to be reminded of them.
But, I won't be surprised to find our windows covered in egg tomorrow morning.
