    The ebay posting was awesome, some of the responses... I mean, posting their address... that's uncalled for.

    Thanks for the laugh... that's funny.

    Gawd Beyblades... Do they still make them things?

    The toyshops round here, mostly seem to sell plastic ray guns, and any number of Transformer and Gundam knockoffs.

    That's because you live in China. All they have is copies of the real thing.

    On to the eBay auction. They must have one cheap tub or the kids hooked a small motor up to their launcher. Either way I am goingto try it with my sons beyblades in my tub. I don't think that lil toy can do that damage. But I have Ben wrong before lol.

    True...mainly because I live in rural northern China. But of course we all know the real-mccoy is 'Made in China' as well.

    I'm confused. They cut out part of the bath tub with a plastic toy and need the money to replace it?

    This story is so confusing but the part where the ebay trolls ruin it all is funny.

    You are paying way too much attention to the story. The funny part is how the lady is made fun of.

    It's because of how the auction was posted on Ebay. Ebay is a place to buy and sell things, and NOT public humiliation.

    It is funny. The 4chan inhabitants did a wonderful job. :D

    We'll have to disagree with that. I absolutely agree with the mom.

    She said that the "METAL" ones caused the damage to her tub... I can completely understand that.

    She should have been watching them to begin with. Plus, you dont publicly humiliate your kids to teach them the lesson. You simply, sell the damn things on ebay. You dont make your kids the object of public humiliation. Poor parenting skills.

    You have to have a cheap ass tub for those things to "destroy" the tub, even the metal ones.

    I agree that she should have been watching the kids. It reminds me of a friend of mine who was mad at the golf course when his kid went around smashing his little kiddie clubs into the green and the course made him pay for fixing the gouges. Why he stood there and let the kid do it is beyond me.
    I would only publicly humiliate my theoretical children if they were being jackasses in public already. By humiliating, I would strongly admonish them about it in front of everyone there and make them apologize to any parties they may have said or done objectionable things to. The beating a dead horse lecture about it is often punishment enough.
