"(Geez, I sound like I'm 80....."In my day, we respected authority, not like you young whipper-snappers now-a-days...")"
I know palmtree, and I'm only 35! But we were raised differently than the kids now. When I was growing up you could be corrected and disciplined by any adult. You were disrespectful of an adult and you were punished. Had I been that girl, I wouldn't want to call my mother to come get me out of jail, cause I'm gonna get beat right at the jail. That's how they did it back then. It's not just the arguing, but to have the audacity to approach the officer like she did, no respect, and also no fear.
