Did you read a couple days ago about the dumbshit parent who left her kid in the car at a store parking lot in Albany? The Calapooia creek flash-flooded, washed the car into the creek and the kid drowned. Fucking stupid. You'd think with all the warnings about doing that crap everyone would know better by now. Never, EVER leave a kid in a car. Ever! Not even for a minute! Not even for a second! I can't believe how fucking stupid some people are.

A bit on the over protectionist side there aren't ya Blah?

As kids it was common, with my kids less so, but on occasion I indeed left my 2 girls in a locked car while I went into the convenience store and neither my sister, myself nor my 2 girls were ever any the worse for it.

Life is a crap shoot, things happen ... it's a given drinking

I was 5, my little bro was 3, ma left us in the car...
he started fuckin around playin like he was driving, he kept grabbing the gear shifter and I knew that was a bad idea. I told him to knock it off but he didn't listen, he just popped it into neutral...oh yeah, the car was parked at the top of a fairly short but sharply inclined driveway...we rolled backwards across a 2 lane road and on out into a was then that my brother coined the phrase "no harm, no foul"...
another time he was standing on the front seat at 55 mph, someone ran a stop sign and shot out in front of hit the brakes and his head hit the windshield and cracked it...he sat down for the rest of the ride home..
ma was driving and my sister kept fucking with the door handle in the back seat...I was standing on the front seat...we went around a corner and the door flung open and out went sis, she tumbled off into the stopped and walked back to her, helped her up, and berated her the whole way back to the car for not listening to her about the damn handle...
we survived, but I agree with blah to some extent...we were lucky, there could have been a cement truck barreling down the road when we rolled out into it...
I'm not sure if the story I saw was the same as the one blah's talking about, there was a man and a woman and 2 kids in a car, story was unclear of their relationship with one another..the car was swept into a creek and partially submerged under a small bridge, the man and his child got out, the woman and her child did's very sad but these things do happen

When my first wife and I divorced, she and the kids moved to the Chicago area for a couple of years. I didn't find out about it until about 15 years later but one cold day my ex went into a convenience store and left the kids in the car with it running with the heat on so they'd be warm. My son, who was three or four at the time, managed to drive the car into the store. He's got a three year old himself now, heheheheh.

Oh, and thanks, p_j, I needed a nap and was able to get one while this pic downloaded.

My cousin did the same thing your sis did, p_j, but she did it with real class - she tumbled out of my uncle's big black Packard. And one of my earliest memories is of sitting on the front center armrest of that Packard so I could see where we were going. Never hit the dash or the windshield though; or maybe I did and forgot. Would explain a lot.

I have been accused of being overly safety conscious but I don't believe there is such a thing. I'm not OCD about it but if I see an unsafe situation I do or at least say something about it. One thing I learned in the Navy is that almost every accident could have been avoided and that thinking stuck with me my whole life. Having worked a carrier flight deck drove the point in even deeper.

I admit I am VERY protective of my daughter and other children when they're around. That's just how I am. I don't coddle her and keep her from having fun or anything like that but I keep an eye on her.

It doesn't mean I never take chances but I am very careful most of the time and I notice a lot of potential safety problems that other people don't. If that makes me over protectionist then fine, that's me and I'm not about to change now. smiling

When I was a kid I did some pretty stupid things with cars too. I was the boy in the family so it was incumbent upon me to take on those duties.
