Craziness

I have kind of a quirky imagination, but there is some stuff that just cannot be made up.  I heard this on the local news the other night.  A toddler found a gun in her own diaper bag after being dropped off at a daycare center.  A LOADED GUN.

The child's grandmother had "forgotten" the loaded gun was in the diaper bag.  WHAT??

Even more curious--the daycare's solution to this little problem--children will no longer be permitted to bring diaper bags or backpacks to the facility.

Do we live in a crazy world?

A loaded gun? I am still shaking my head. Are you sure that grandmother wasn't wearing one of those signs around her neck that says "I'm Stupid"? Should have been! I'm still shaking my head...

WHOA--what can I say to such stupidity-there are no words for people like that! Thank God the little one didn't pull the trigger.

And these are the people raising our future generation? Scary and thankfully there was no terrible accident for some innocent to suffer and that child would have had to live with.

I would call it a PSYCHOTIC world. That grandmother should be committed to an insane asylum.

You would think by the time a woman reaches the age of grandma she would have this kind of thing down to a fine art ...... well maybe.... guess some of us grandmas still have a thing or two to learn. lol I am glad nothing bad happened.... that we know of. because mama and daddy may have had a thing or two to say to grandma after that. lol

Totally insane! Thank goodness the child didn't do any harm after finding it. I hope the grandmother was penalized as well...beyond having her stupidity publicized. Wow!

Obviously the child should have been expelled from the day care center. Zero tolerance and all.

Beyond crazy. Why would the grandmother even put it there? Thankfully, it was found. Thankfully, no one was injured.

The gun carelessness is crazy enough. The "punishment" is just stupid.

I certainly hope the Grandma was reported to the police! Why ban back packs and diaper bags? Just check them at the door! What do they bring diapers in now?

Granny Annie said...

Really? That's the way they solve the problem? Backpacks don't kill people, People (like stupid grandmothers) kill people!

Sometimes I just shake my head. At people and at arbitrary "solutions."
