Violent Hyperbole Under Attack

It seems a mother and her child don't know hyperbole when they hear it, and a teacher may suffer for it. For crying out loud. She should have taken away her kid's keys to his car for the week, not complained about the teacher. (Trust me, at Blue Valley, with her overprotective attitude, he has a car. I give it an 85% chance.)

The parent then used the dread phrase 'zero tolerance'. Spare me. The last thing we need is to cater to intolerant, thin skinned nannies who think everything can be solved by the unthinking application of government power. Please stop making everyone's life miserable because your kid likes to play the victim.
