Futureteens Beware, I've Got Your Futurenumber

It would be incorrect to overly compare Caleb Nichol, from FOX's hit drama, The O.C., to Deadbeat-Pére. For one, Deadbeat Père's hair is not white, his girlfriend/wife is black and more of a recluse than a total bitch à la Julie Cooper-Nichol, and he does not own half of Newport Beach.

What they do have in common is an overwhelming desire to rudely and inappropriately put the youth in their place. I've been noticing on FOX's hit drama The O.C. that Caleb cannot be in the same room with an adolescent without proving to them that he is better than they are. Here is an actual conversation I have had with Deadbeat-Pére:

Worker #3116: Are you seriously picking a fight with a 24-year-old woman? You're 53.
Deadbeat Père: She started it.

When this has happened in the past with Deadbeat Père I have been very angry, but now, watching Caleb, I am starting to realize that it's totally what I'm going to be like. Besides, teens are too sassy. They need to be taken down a few notches, say to 12-year-olds. So look out, futureteens, an aged and curmudegeonly Worker #3116 is not scared of scarring you for life.
