People who don't buckle up their kids are just plain lazy!

I am LIVID!! I just came back from picking up my god-daughter, and she was not properly strapped in the vehicle! Her chest straps weren't even around her chest! It was closer to her lap. To make matters worse, her carseat was just placed in the car. No seatbelt or any other kind of protection if (God forbid!) they had been in an accident. Her mother's excuse? I was i n a hurry. In a hurry?! OMG, I am willing to be a little late (and I am a very punctual person) in order to make sure my children are properly restrained and protected. Ok, vent over......lol thanks for listening!

  • ditto.....in fact when i worked at a daycare, we were supposed to report any child unrestrained in the vehicle to DFS (which here is dept of family services). It aggravates me too!

  • LAZY?? Try just plain retarted. I get SOOO mad when I see things like that. I know someone who does it all the time and I fix it right in front of her...she gets pissed but I don't care! I have called the police so many time being out and seing 2 year olds in the front with no seatbelt, or kids with no carseats. What are you thinking?? The best is when they're in "too much a hurry" to buckle their kids but they put their own seatbelt on...irrisponsible jerks who shouldn't have kids. Ok I guess I had to vent too lol!

  • Just plain lazy? No, 'lazy' is too kind.

    They are irresponsible.

    They are reckless.

    They are selfish.

    Grrrr.....

  • I so agree with you, toledoohiomom, that pisses me off to no end! I wanna flag the parents (family member, whoever they may be) down and slap the crap out of them! onefinenursemom, I can understand a mistake (once corrected ya know?) But to say you were just in a hurry? Oh, man that is just laziness
