Children left in the car taken to whole nother level
That being said people are taking it to a whole nother level. My children and I left on a road trip this morning to go visit family. They are 14 and 10 years old. We had to stop and get gas and they were busy playing on their tablets so I left them in the car to grab some drinks and pay for our fuel. I had the keys with me however all the windows were down and the sunroof open in addition to being in the shade. It took me a little longer than expected getting my drinks due to a lot of customers and only one clerk working register. Temps were in the low 90s at this time.
I came out from the store only to be confronted by this CRAZY lady going off on how dangerous it is to leave kids unattended in a vehicle and how she called the police and I'm lucky the windows were down otherwise she would have smashed them out. Holy moly lady. They are more than old enough to get out of the car and come find me in the store if they needed me plus I could see them from the window the whole time. Its not like I left a baby or toddler sitting in the sun with the windows up.
I finish pumping my gas and get in my car to leave at which point an officer pulls up behind me and lights me up. I pull over and step out of the vehicle as per the officers instructions. I explain to her what happened and she apologized for the inconvenience and sent me on my way.
Way to take it to the next level crazy gas station vigilante. Smdh. I thought craziness of this level only existed on the internet. 😕
