Would you?

 Would you leave your infant in a running car while running into the daycare to grab your older children which are over the age of 5?

I wasn't sure if there was a baby in the carseat, since it was in the front passenger seat. Then I saw the woman walking out of the daycare after me with two older children. Once she opened the door, I heard the infant screaming.

Would you have done this? Exactly how common is this?!

My husband does it it pisses me off every time. I think it's lazy and irresponsible and asking for something to go terribly wrong.

No, but lots of people do.  Their reasoning is that they can see the car.  Yup, see it drive off with your kid inside.  Or see someone grabbing the kid.  Or see the kid getting way too hot.  I say that one because where we live it's gets REALLY hot.  Some guy left his baby in the car and she baked to death.  I would never do that.

Nope. It's unsafe and illegal (at least where I live)

No.    Someone could steal my running car, it slips out of gear, and who knows if the other kids are right there ready to go.

Why is this woman having more kids if the ones she does have are being raised by daycare anyways?
