I was in the library parking lot after work tonight and I noticed the lady in the minivan parked next to me left it running. Then I look in the back seat and see a baby in baby seat. The lady is about twenty feet from her car when I this exchange takes place:
Me: "Ma'am, you left your baby in the car."
Lady: "It's all right. I left the air conditioning on."
Me: "Come and get your baby or I will call the police."
Then I noticed there's a young boy napping in the back of the van. And there's a seven year old girl sitting in the back seat.
The lady shoots me a look and walks back to the van. I offer to take her stuff into the library but she has to renew some things and it becomes a whole long story. She says her kids are very well behaved. I detail some of the worst case scenarios featuring small children left in cars. She says nothing.
I wait a little way off from the van even though she says "thank you" and tries to dismiss me from the scene.
I walk a little in front of her and her kids on the way into the library.
I go about my business in the library until she leaves. Then I watch her go back to her car from the lobby, because I'm paranoid she's going to key my car. But my car was safe. And so were her kids.
