I have decided to come up with a new category for my blog. It is called ‘Dumb Things People Do’. I will add a new ‘volume’ each time I write a post. As much as I hate to say it, I may end up with an infinite amount of posts. It may even become my largest category!
Anyways, here is the story:
I was out shopping and I saw a giant Doberman Pinscher riding in the front seat of a very small car. (Think Aveo hatchback or Volkswagon GTI). This dog was almost in the drivers lap, and his drooling mouth was right in the driver’s face. However, that isn’t the dumbest part. In the backseat of this tiny car was a child of about 3, a baby in a car seat, and a mom who had a toddler sitting on her lap.
I kept staring in disbelief. The Doberman got to ride in the front seat of the car, while four humans were crammed into a very tiny backseat, including an unbuckled child. What is wrong with this world? I am sure the mom in the backseat wanted to kill me because I kept staring at her and shaking my head. I wanted to perform a citizens arrest, but I didn’t want the dog to eat me. Where are the police when you need them?
I always get nervous when I see people driving with animals that are in the driver’s lap, or close to it. However, I am extra nervous when I see a bunch of kids in the backseat, especially in such a small car. I hope this was a one-time event, and not how they travel all the time.
