Overheard: Now you Behave

5th December 2005

My friend Courtney sent me a conversation. She says:

I was on my way back to the apartment this morning after moving the car and saw a woman dropping her 6-ish-year-old girl off at the bus. I thought you would appreciate their exchange:

“Now, you behave today. You got a problem, you talk to the teacher. No gettin’ in any fights.”


“And no talkin’ back!”


“And no hittin’ anybody…”


“less they hit you first.”
