I got two g-d damn kids and I'll leave them in the car if I want to!

So I had to run to the store to get lettuce for taco night, and that's what I heard a woman screaming into her phone.

Add a few more expletives and you have her exact sentence.


She was trying to justify locking her two children in the car because she was going to take the key fob off and leave the car running to go into Walmart.


This is the same store where a man attempted to kidnap my 1 yo (then 10 months) when I was unlocking the door.

I have no idea who she was on the phone with, but apparently they were telling her what an awful idea that was. 


How would you feel about leaving children strapped in their carseat inside a running but locked vehicle?

 People are idiots.  There's now a sign on the doors to our Walmart grocery store reminding parents to be aware of when their kids are with them and please don't leave them in the car.  Next time I go I'll take a picture.

There is no way on this earth I would ever leave my child in the car when I went inside anywhere.

when I was a kid, we wanted to stay in the car rather than go in the store with my Mom and we had the keys and a/c runnning and played with the radio and always preferred that than go into the store but nowadays you will get arrested for child neglect.

I'd be damned before I leave my son in the car. I take him out even when I just have to run into the gas station to pay!

I do that at home if I need to run in the house real quick, but never at a gas station/store/public building.
