The honesty of children

My friend’s daughter is a very feisty personality, who always calls a spade a spade, while adding several descriptive words which will be considered very bad in civilized society. Growing up in a rough and tumble town dominated by steel-mill workers did not help much either.

That being said, as she got older she did mellow out a bit, but one thing that she just could not get over was inconsiderate and bad drivers.

In time they produced a very sweet daughter as well. If I did not know it was her daughter, I would not have believed she could be the mother, as that child was sweetly natured.

That silence was followed by only one word from the child on the back seat:
