So, this happened today.
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.

No dice.

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.

Some people should not be allowed to have children.

Yet, those people seem compelled to reproduce.

Wow. Just . . . wow. I'm gobsmacked. That she thought it was ok to leave children alone in her car with the a/c on is unfathomable.

Good on you for stepping in.

:O Ugh, what an idiot! I'm glad you were there, but sadly she probably won't learn. :(

People are nuts. Sometimes I just think it's the area where I live. But mostly, I think it's just people.

Thanks!

The first link gives an error, saying that Quicktime does not recognize the file.

The second two links worked great.

I just tried and it's fine. Perhaps, try again?

Or try using VLC player.

it's your birthday! Shall we have a party?

The Boosh boys have a gift for you!



Apparently Noel still practices the time-honored childhood tradition of birthday spanks. What a loon.


Ju offered to do some magic tricks

and balloons!


So glad we became friends. Hope you have a wonderful day!
