Once before I have posted about a young mum holding 1) her buggy handle and 2) her mobile, clamped to her ear while her toddler nearly ran in front of me on a busy road. I was really upset by the experience and just so glad I was able to stop.
Today I was driving DH to the Health Centre and at the roundabout just in front of it a tinylittle girl - can't have even been as old as three - started running ahead of her mum on the island in the middle of the road and into the traffic. The young mum screeched at the child, waved her hand at her, told her off but made NO attempt to hold the child's hand. I was able to stop in time obviously, but if I had been looking further ahead to see if the roundabout was clear, I might not have - so wound down the window and said "You should be holding your little girl's hand"
"Thank you for not killing my child"?? No way! The response was quite simply "FUCK OFF" (no apologies to those of a sensitive disposition who are offended by the word)
What is it with some people?
Or should I just mind my own eff-ing business?
