Go Directly To Jail!
Good grief. it is going to be in the 50's today. What's Happening!!!!???
Anyhoo... you know what really pisses me off? Well, I'm gonna tell ya. When parents leave children in the car, thinking they will be safe for a few minutes. What can happen? I'll tell ya. Weirdos and creeps look for cars that are running because they like to drive other people's cars. They don't care if a kid is in the back.
Fortunately for the idiot mom who left her toddler in the car whilst she ran into an apartment to talk to someone (for just a minute) her child was found safe just a few blocks away.
My FIL once took our precious cargo to the store one day. It was supposed to be my day to do whatever I wanted. So, I went shopping. And what do I find sitting all alone in Grandpa's orange Pacer? My darling, precious cargo. My first thought was to take her and let him have a heart attack when he saw she was gone. My second thought was to run into the store and murder him, possibly with the 50% off plastic candy canes. I was furious. I could see him in line at the store, and from where he was, he could not see my spawn, who was patiently sitting in the car. I just stood and waited whilst he smiled and flirted with the clerk. And then he sauntered out of the store, until he saw me he flinched, but the trooper and bullshitter that he is, he composed himself, greeted me, and took off, not sticking around for any family banter.
Gahd, I was pissed.
Let's just say, Gramps was never allowed to take the again.
Do not leave your kids in the car! I do not care if you are going to be two feet away. Do not do it.
