last night, whilst walking down the street of our hood, me and the hubby heard someone say, "meow" as a car pulled up behind us. so, as not to be rude, we turned around and it was none other than......
Suzie Stupid and her other retarded half, Walkin Weirdo... and to our complete and utter surprise, Suzie Stupid had their itsy bitsy bundle of joy plopped down on her lap in the front seat! w/out a seat belt... not that it would help, but it could. (where in the hell was the baby seat was the first thing that came to my mind?!)
well, needless to say, i couldn't help but to let the words shoot from my mouth - yes, i'm so good at keepin' things in - so i said, "why isn't your bundle of joy in a car seat, do you realize how dangerous it is to drive around w/out a car seat?" Suzie Stupid immediately said, "we have one but it's in the other car".
oh okay... that explains it. funny that every time i see Suzie Stupid she is driving around w/ that lil bundle of joy on the housemaid's lap in the back seat of the car w/out a freakin car seat. every time i see her and Walkin Weirdo driving someplace, they don't have the car seat!!
so... w/out delay, i then added, "well, i sure hope you don't have an accident cuz if you do, kiddie poo will be headed right into the windshield" (ok, maybe i didn't use those exact words).... well, Suzie Stupid gave one of those looks and changed the subject immediately w/out saying a word. and... Walkin Weirdo just sat there like the idiot that he is... and you know, he has a college education! but has never been out of Bahrain. (insert instance where you wanna go, "hmmm")
oh, i'm sure if something were to happen, i would be the person.to.blame and it prob would be said that i have evil.eyes BUT... i don't give a rat's ass, truthfully because i know why i said what i said.
when are ppl gonna speak up and make ppl accountable for what's happening w/ children in this country? how many children have to die in car accidents for ppl to realize how serious this issue is and to take heed??? oh but gosh darnit... how can the bundle of joy leave a mother's or, rather, housemaid's arms? they can't even put the child down so how in the world can they put the lil thang in a car seat!
the thought of her and Walkin Weirdo drivin 'round w/ that baby sittin' on her lap w/ no protection is almost more than i can stand. i've said things in the past and no one listens. i've said things to the honey and he basically said that it doesn't make any difference, Suzie Stupid and Walkin Weirdo will not listen and they don't care. plain and simple.
hubby said that when and only when an accident happens and the bundle of joy is hurt.... that's when they'll wish they had listened.
ya know what really smacks ya is the fact that Suzie Stupid looked as though she was gonna laugh as they drove off into the darkness.....
so what to do? i'm sick of it all really. i can't even stand to be around it. the hubby recently got a t-shirt at Disney that says, "i'm surrounded by idiots"... i think i should wear it the next time i'm around them and then explain it. hmmm.. but would they understand?
