Default What really grindes my gears

You no what really grinds my gears parents who treat GW as a free daycare center.

Like they dump there 10 year old child in there for the whole day who is loaded up with caffeine and what seems like an unlimited amount of sugar who just runs around GW knocking you while you are painting, knocking down your models because you kill his character, generally screaming at the top of there lungs and most of all THEY ALL HAVE MARINES

Like okay there is the occasional kid who is quiet and nice and you know not screaming and running around like a maniac, and yes l think that is good that young kids get involved in 40k.

But seriously this is why the label says 12+ not 8+.
This is just me, tell me what you think but for now

Thats what really grinds my gears.

(The saying 'Grinds my Gears' is not taken from any carton related cough Family guy cough and remains an independent saying.)

That also happens to me as well, like you go ' You do not get to assault 12 inches' and than they go ' Yes you can BAMM' and knock your models off your building.

Which has happen to me so many times like my models have got scratched so many times from kids just knocking them off buildings on purpose because the lost or are annoyed.

It just really grinds my gears.

What really grinds my gears is players who have 5 or 6 different armies yet none of them are fucking painted.

But do you guys agree with me how annoying it is when parents use it as a free day care center.

As l said before especially when the kid had way to much caffeine.

Like when l was a kid i stayed in the shadows didnt speak out of line and was nice not over hyper active, all of my generation was.

Like so much happens to the generation in 5 years.

Now all kids in year 2 have mobiles and kids who are 5 are going out to town by them selves.

Like come on seriously.
