Bored out of my skull last night, there I was, surfing through the channels. - Came across the movie "Patton", which I've never seen before.
During one particular scene, Patton slaps a soldier on his helmet, telling him to stop crying. - Called him a coward, going on to explain that he had no right crying in front of soldiers who were actually wounded in combat.
Patton later loses his command of the 7th army, because of the incident.He is ordered by his superior, to make a full apology to everyone, including the soldier.
Should you have hugged the kid and told him that everything is OK? Or should you just slap the shit outta him, while yelling: <b>STOP your cryin, or I'll give you somethin' ta cry about!"</b>?
... What is this world coming to?
