When three normal words trigger memories from when you were like 5 and your best friends’ dad would say to you, a literal child, “don’t look at me in that tone of voice”
Looking back on this through the eyes of an adult. What the fuck was that about? First of all this is your neighbor’s child, not yours, you don’t get free reign to treat them however the fuck you want.
Second, obviously a child that young either wouldn’t understand that it’s meant to be a joke, or if they did how the fuck is the child supposed to respond? Also how is that even a joke? Making a child feel shamed/threatened for no reason???
This wasn’t just once, this was something he said regularly. What a fucking asshole dude.
