yuppie breeding ground

Overheard at the local playground by a yuppie mommy (with WAAAAYYY too much enthusiasm and wild applause):

GOOD SLIDING, JAKE!!! GOOD JOB!!!

Oh, for Pete’s sake. All that kid did was obey the laws of gravity. Must we compliment our children for their every little triumph? Wait until Jake finds out that the world isn’t all that impressed with his accomplishments.
