8 Things To Say If You Find Out Your Kid Took A Selfie With A Homeless Person

By  | 

At the end of the day, the only thing I really want to accomplish with this whole parenting thing that I’ve decided to undertake is to mold little decent human beings and send them out into the world. I want them to be kind, considerate and understand right from wrong. At the very least I want them to understand that posing next to someone who is unconscious or making fun of people who aren’t as fortunate as they are is vile. A tumblr site called “Selfies With Homeless People” exists. Yes, it’s as bad as it sounds.

It’s a stream of photos of teenagers posing with various people who are sleeping on the street. Many of them look like they could probably use some help. No matter – these kids aren’t about to pass up a chance to take a selfie. I hope these images follow them, I really do. Here’s my best advice for parents who find these on their child’s phone:

1. (Silence)

2. You are a horrible person. Consider yourself grounded until you can pay your own way.

3. If I could somehow transfer this C-section scar to your abdomen, I would do it right now.

8. I never thought I would tell my own kid to fuck off, but, “fuck off.”
