People complain too much

By on

It's only the end of April and we've already had like FOUR kind of nice days this year - what does everyone want?

People have the right to say what they're gong to say, even if it involves the use of so-called "barnyard" language to do so. No words are really unclean unless one thinks of them that way!

But I wouldn't go there after reading the opening sentence. Guess I'm old.

The F-word is ... well, we all use it.

This is a good thought.

...a specific "one" -- that is, you.

De gustibus non est disputandum, but don't make the mistake of thinking that your tastes are everyone's.

I don't like profanities mixed with my ice cream..it's like talking to clouds on a sunny day.

Agreed. Already sick and tired of the crude language and behavior from the current administration... to have it coming from a local ice cream shop isn't cute or funny, it's just dismal. Clever wit would have been a refreshing change of pace.

Every time she speaks, the clouds suddenly part and it's sunshine & rainbows as far as the eye can see.

If being educated and articulate makes one a pearl clutcher then count me in.

Actually, no

That's not what makes you a pearl-clutcher. Since you're so educated, I'm sure you know what "pearl-clutcher" means.

Yes

but it’s pretty strong language from a fucking ice cream shop, wouldn’t you agree? I mean, what’s their fucking problem?

nah

now if the tweet told the weather what it could stick up it's own **** while ******** a **** then that would be a little extreme, for an ice cream shop.

SO WE CAN ALL PRETEND IT’S A NORMAL SPRING

this IS a normal spring in Boston, pretty much. a little bit on the extreme temp-wise, but this is a typical April in Boston to me.

Oh and F their Sh**y Potty Mouth.

This is NOT a normal spring: https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2018/04/19/ugh-coldest-start-april-yea...

In case some scientifically-impaired folk want to wander into "no global warming because it is cold where I am" territory, let's look at the entire planet: http://cci-reanalyzer.org/wx/fcst/#gfs.world-ced.t2anom

Meanwhile, the UK is experiencing rather odd temperatures, too. As in FREAKING BROILING at 29.4C/85F in April! https://www.express.co.uk/news/weather/948528/UK-weather-hot-sunshine-me...

What’s with that foul language? Who would take their kid there now?

Fucking grownups, that's who

Grownups who don't give a fuck about what pearl clutchers think.

Grownups who know that our kids see the injustice in the world and know that it is massively more profane than a couple of fucking goddamn cuss words!

Maybe if your goddamn rent depended on the weather being decent enough to compel people to get ice cream, you would be pretty fucking frantic by now, too?

No. Most grownups wouldn't

By on

No. Most grownups wouldn't bring their kids to this shop with that sign displayed. It's inappropriate language ESPECIALLY for an ice cream shop. I'm no pearl clutcher. either, I just think the F word is completely unnecessary here. I'm sure lots of kids frequent the shop too. Let me ask you this, do you want your childs siblings, parents, teachers, friends etc all dropping the F bomb in front of your kids? I'm not talking teenagers, I'm talking young kids. Don't act like you wouldn't expose your kids to this when they were young Twirlybird. Your hypocrisy knows no bounds.

So you think that was on a phyiscal sign? Hanging in a window? Not, like, text accompaniying a Twitter/Instagram post?

My stars! Your palms are literally riddled with pearl indentations.

It's a TWEET.

By on

No. Most grownups wouldn't bring their kids to this shop with that sign displayed.

It's a TWEET. Do you know what twitter is, gramps? It's not a sign. It's not physically displayed on or around the ice cream shop. It's a tweet, on twitter, and the children on whose behalf you're pearl-clutching (yes, you are, Blanche) are not going to see it unless they follow this ice cream shop in Twitter.

Your hypocrisy knows no bounds.

There. Is. No. Sign. Now get off your high dudgeon before you get a nosebleed.

Pearl-clutchers

All these commenters with the vapors are making me wonder if they've ever actually gone out in public in Boston. I've heard priests swear more enthusiastically than that tweet.

Not sure it's "all these commenters"

By on

It kinda sounds like the same stuffy cranky-ass anon commenting multiple times. Either way, it's a great example of the most useless kind of internet post: an unsolicited remark about how someone else's behavior violates your standards and will cause you to not do something that you weren't gonna do anyway.
