Assault Is No Laughing Matter

Sun Media

Let’s get this straight – you cannot hit anyone for any reason, even if you think it is funny.

So outside of Brad Pitt getting smacked by someone clearly trying to get attention, there was also another story of the Kardashians who had confetti poured on them by a clown. Despite personal feelings about that clan, you cannot do that and it is not funny.

Remember what we teach our children, to keep our hands to ourselves. Boundaries are important. A couple of boundaries to keep in mind, although this is not an exhaustive list:

  1. Don’t touch other people’s children without asking permission. As a parent I find this exceptionally annoying. I do have the cutest babies in the world, but honestly I do not need to lose more sleep because they are sick again.
  2. Don’t touch other people’s pets without permission. No matter how cute a puppy looks, it could be vicious.
  3. Don’t enter people’s pools, trampolines or outside playgrounds without permission. You do not know if there are repair issues or problems.

Quite frankly they might not want you there and then you are officially trespassing. Just a few pet peeves, I’m done now.
