I don't think I'm wrong about this. EDIT

When my husband was a kid he broke his arm. He was 3 (he thinks, not sure the exact age.) He fell off the slide. Now, here is where our opinions differ. He finds the following funny while I find it awful. After he fell, his mom gave him a bath before taking him to the hospital. His arm was broken but she wanted him to be presentable in stead of worrying about her child's pain. It bothers me that he just thinks it's funny. It isn't funny to me. Who cares if he was dirty? He was playing in the park. His arm was broken and she should have immediately taken him to the hospital regardless of his cleanliness. Do you agree with me, or him? Is it funny, or not?



EDIT: HE JUST SAID HE WAS APPARENTLY 1 NOT 3. OOOPS MY BAD.

Not funny but odd. I would be more worried about my child being in pain than being clean.

exactly. thank you! I can't imagine if my litlles ones broke a bone. I would probably pretend to be calm so they would be calm, but I would be freaking out inside and rushing to the emergency room.

Well, and also I'd be worried about jarring something or displacing the bone even further.

That's true. I probably would too. I've never broken a bone, so I don't even know what it's like.

I'd personally take the child straight to the ER, even if they looked like they had been playing in coal. lol.

i wouldnt do it, and it wouldnt be funny at the time, but it could be funny later. theres not a lot you can do about it. its not like you can hold a grudge against her for that

That's what he thinks, that now looking back on it, it's funny. I just don't see it that way, but your right, no reason to hold a grudge over it.
