  • Generally, uptight people are former kids who were beaten, picked on and berated by intolerant adults who were determined to stomp out noise, fun, random immature behaviour -because that's exactly how they were raised, too.

    Free kids are 'wrong' according to these people, but more than wrong, they're dangerous --in danger of being killed for not behaving properly. Watching kids 'get away' with things they'd have been forced to stop doing brings back all the memories of being terrified by the threatening, angry adults.

    They're just passing on the deranged upbringing they lived through.
