gizmo Posted September 28, 2009 Share Posted September 28, 2009 My daughter, the sensitive one, went to a friend's house today for a few hours. She came home in tears. It seems as though her friend and the friend's 5 year old brother were teasing the pet Chihuahua, and the damn dog bit my daughter several times on the leg (my daughter loves dogs, and wasn't throwing pillow at the dog). Now, my daughter is porcelain fair, but these dog bites left red marks AND BRUISES! Thankfully, no skin was broken. But WTF? The mother of these two children not only did not call us when this occurred, she didn't tell my husband when he picked up my daughter. Then she tried to cover it up. Then she tried to make it like it was no big deal. Well, let the friggin dog bite your kids and draw bruises, you cow! Then, my daughter said that the kids went to McD's, and not one of them were in a car seat. Now, my daughter and her friend are 8, but the law states that children need to be 4'9" tall (my daughter is 4'4") to stop sitting in a booster seat. But the five year old not only wasn't in a booster seat, he sat in the front seat! Thankfully, they all wore seat belts. My daughter said the seat belt latches were buried deep in the seat, so it's likely these kids weren't wearing seat belts before. I mean, it was only 3 blocks to McD's, but I had a major car accident in a town of 8,000 two blocks from my in-laws house, so anything can happen, you know? I mean, is it just me that I require my children to be safe and respectful of pets and other people and the property in my home and in others' homes, or am I some outdated relic? Or is this woman really as stupid as I think she is? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
