Have you ever noticed that all children whine?? Even the most well behaved children.? And don’t give me the, “my children are perfect angels and never whine” crap.? I don’t buy it.
It’s not like we sit down and teach our children whining.? Think about that.? They just learn it.? I don’t know where they learn it, they just do.? It’s like God’s cruel joke.? Like when your kid was born He thought, “I’m going to make this child extra cute, but to balance it out I’m going to make it extra whiny.? Don’t want these parents liking their child too much and all.”
Somewhere around the time the speaking function kicks in the whining plug-in is activated.? A child instinctively knows when and where whining will most annoy their parents.? Like when you are at the supermarket checking out and have 5 minutes to pay, load your groceries, strap your child in the car and get to an appointment or at 10:00 in the morning on a Tuesday.
And the whining isn’t your ordinary whining.? It’s that irritating nasal whining that grates at your last nerve and makes you want to shove a pencil in your ear.? LOOOOOONG drawwwwwn out wooorrrdddsss that end in “uh.”
“Ayye waaaannnt iiiit-uh”
“you caaan’t maaake meeee-uh”
Isn’t it enough to drive you insane?? I know my child’s whining makes me instinctively want a beer.
