While I was pumping gas last week, I glanced over and noticed a girl in the backseat holding an infant who couldn't have been any more than about 7 or 8 months, out the window, so that the baby could play. They continued to do this as they drove off. WTF? I took a picture of the license plate and called the police department as soon as I got in the car. After I called, K got mad at me a bit asking why I would call the police on someone like that. I told her it was irresponsible. Children under a certain age should be IN A CAR SEAT when the car is in motion.
This is the conversation A and I had shortly after that.
A: Why did yew call da polices on dat lady?
Me: Because she was holding her baby while she was driving.
A: Maybe she just wubed her baby and wanted to gib her a hug.
Me: Maybe, but if she really loved her child she would out them in a carseat while the car was going.
Yesterday morning we had this conversation.
A: Hey, I just wanted to tell yew I called duh polices on dat lady next to us.
Me: Oh yeah? Why?
A: Because she was holden her baby in duh car wifout a carseat.
Me: That's good. It's too dangerous to drive like that huh? You're very smart.
A: *happy sigh* Yeah. I'm pretty intelligent.
Me: *laughs* Yes you are.
