I don't have any kids of my own but I was raised in a family who enforced morals. There are just certain things you don't do and it's almost common sense. Today, a buddy from work and I went out to the local pond about 5 minutes away. He took his fly rod to use and after unpacking it left the casing sitting out by his tackle box. There was another guy there with 3-4 younger boys (around 6-9 or so i would so) and they were wondering around the pond. It was about time to start packing up so he was breaking down his rod. One of the boys was walking by us towards his dad. Instead of going around he walks between and stops about 12" away from the fly rod case laying on the ground. Looks down, gives it a swift kick to get it out of his way and keeps truckin. My buddy turned around so fast and yelled at the kid for it. Told him he should respect peoples stuff. The kids dad was maybe 30' away and did NOTHING. He knew what happened because his other boys were standing there watching and started talking to the boy when he got close to them about the situation. I just can't believe the kid got away with it. The father didn't say one word. I don't even want to think about what would have happened to me if I did something like that to someone elses stuff (or mine for that matter) in front of my Dad. Sorry, end rant.
