People are....

People are not very smart. Ok, I'll just say it. People are stupid. They do stupid things that are not thought out. So today, I'm cruising thru Facebook. One of my favorite past times. I like seeing what the heck everyone else does all day. Some people tell you all their problems which makes you thankful for your little ones. Also makes ya wonder why they tell all. I certainly wouldn't. I've been told that I say everything I feel. What a load of crap. If I even said 75% of what I thought I wouldn't be on speaking terms with several people. I'm not saying I'm perfect. FAR from it, but damn, I do have some common sense and not a ton of patience for those that don't. Anyho, I'm cruising thru FB and I see that a "friend" from high school...I'm not gonna lie, I wouldn't know her if I saw her. But like I was saying, I see this friend has posted some pictures. So even though I don't really know her, I start clicking thru them. I come across this one picture of a kid in a booster seat sitting next to a teenager that is holding another kid. Now here comes the stupid part. The teen has the seat belt around her and the kid. WTH? I'm sorry if you've ever done this, but yes, I'm calling you stupid. I can't tell you the number of times on the airplane that I have had to tell people not to put the seat belt around both them and their lap child. They look at you like you've lost your mind. WHAT? And why wouldn't I want to protect my child from turbulence? Because, imagine slamming the brakes on in a car. Ya know how that seat belt cuts into you when you stop? How about the weight of your body cutting kiddlet in half. OHHHHHHHH....eye's get really big as they rip that belt off. Moral of my story...I realize kids suck your brain out. I am a victim, but lets use some common sense.

I think you should post a link to this on her wall.

Yes!

You can't even leave a hospital with a new baby without a properly installed car seat, so who, in this day and age, is NOT aware of the dangers of something like this???

Did you comment on the friend's pic? I would have had a hard time holding back... Then again, I have been accused of being 'too honest' myself.

Nope...not gonna make a comment. I figure it's not like I'll get fined by the FAA for letting it happen. ;) Now if she asked, that's a whole other story! I'm working on "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all". Ya know from Bambi? I haven't been overly successful with that! HAHA!

Stopping by from SITS to share the blog ♥ !

I'm sorry, but flying stinks. I am air sick from the moment we take off until hours later after we land. I have tried EVERYTHING to prevent it, but nothing works. Just sit the preson next to me and they would be thankful to hear anything you have to say to them LOL

Have a great Saturday!

Clearly, you and I have something in common--the things we DON'T say. Now that would really appall people. My mouth still gets me in trouble.

Thanks for stopping by!
