The kids and I are staying at my in-laws for a few days and today while DH was at work my father in law said that he needed to move he truck to the other side of the street do to the street sweeper and took my son with him. I was ok with him only moving the truck across the street but he knows he is not allowed to drive him anywhere by himself. I go back into the house 15 min later and my son is not there so I run outside and the truck is gone. I call my fater in law like crazy but he does not answer and finally 45 min later he shows up and my 7 year old son is riding in the FRONT SEAT. So I flip out on him and pull my son out of the car and told him that he could of killed him because of the airbag and tild him he is never allowed to take my children anywhere. I call my DH and told him everything that happened and he was very upset about what happened but that I overreacted and should appologize to his dad.....wtf are you kidding me, he is lucky all I did was yell at him.
What would you have done in this situation, should I apologize??
EDIT:he is not allowed to drive the children because he is not a good driver and has never been allowed to take the kids anywhere and has been told this many times by his son.
Everybody is just focusing on the fact that he was in the front seat and thats not a reason to be angry but that's not the whole story. I had no idea where my son was for nearly an hour and was in a panic trying to call fil and he never answerd his phone so when they finally showed up I was pretty upset.
