Angry Letter to Parent Who Let Child Play Outside

Let This Letter Serve as a Warning That Kids Shouldn't Play Outside

We get that you might think the problem with today's children is that they are too often cooped up inside in front of a TV screen. But you'd be wrong. The real problem with today's children — especially on days when the weather is nice — is that they think the outdoors are for playing. The nerve!

Thankfully, an anonymous "neighbor" took the time to say what we've all been thinking. This letter, stuffed into a person's mailbox in Arizona, lets this foolish parent know that her small child's backyard antics — which include nothing short of being allowed to "laugh and giggle and carry on without end" — will not be tolerated.

Can we get a slow clap? (Or is that too loud?)
