I was talking to a friend about bad parenting and it struck a memory up in my mind that I had long since forgotten.
When I was about 16, my mom and I were at the grocery store together. We were walking past a mom and her baby, who was probably a year old, maybe younger. They were shopping in the produce section and the baby unbeknownst to it's mother was sucking on the handlebar of the shopping cart. When the mom finally saw it she said "Eww don't suck on that! Here, suck on this instead" and handed him.....drum-roll please.....A PLASTIC BAG! Sooo.....instead of letting him get exposed to germs, she'd much rather he suffocated?
My mom and I both saw it and slowly turned our heads to each other wide eyed, and mouths agape.
I want to hear your worst story! When have you seen a parent doing something absolutely, insanely stupid? Or worse yet, have you ever been that parent?

Hm.. the only thing I can really remember is seeing a mother carry a baby in the middle of winter without a coat or blanket. The baby was in its carrier but only had a diaper on. No blanket or anything. And it was like 5 degrees outside.
