HIGH POINT, N.C. (WGHP) — An apparent ongoing dispute between three parents erupted into a physical fight at an elementary school’s Christmas program Tuesday night.

My hope is that the kids look at the trashy behavior of their parents and silently vow, “I’ll never be like my Mom”.

I’m afraid the truth is that we shall never run out of trashy people who provide us with entertainment of this nature.

Six centuries from now, after we have mastered space travel, some advanced race will make first contact with humans in a distant galaxy. As they get a tour of the human spacecraft they will be astounded to see two women fighting in the cafeteria over line breaking.

Some improvement over the primitive 21st century humans will be evident: They will use telekinetic energy to throw chairs at each other.
