For me, it's almost always paper towels or plastic wrap. I can never remember to buy that stuff when we need it.

Saved in my Wisdom file from an old farker:

"Every once in awhile while I'm in the checkout line at the grocery store, I get the overwhelming feeling that I'm forgetting something. Sometimes, I have to get out of line and do a quick spin thru all of the aisles just to figure out what it is. Usually by the time I hit the condiment aisle, I realize that I'm not forgetting dijon mustard - I'm forgetting 9/11! How embarrassing! -- Antonio_Talibanderas

For me it's usually toilet paper or laundry detergent.

But then I don't have kids.

No shiat. People are far more likely to have a cop pull over their car than they are to have an unannounced home visit by the cops, but they still think the glove compartment is the best place to hide their herbal remedies.

Yet no one called 911, police said, and she allegedly couldn't explain hourlong absence.

There allegedly was an editor, but no one could explain the absence of the personal pronoun.

well it is Florida and it involves a toddler. I hear the Dollar tree has duct tape rolls for get this...only a dollar. unfortunately though no chloroform.

The toddler was so upset, he could only ask "where was his mommy,

Awww....geez.

I know this is supposed to be a funny poke fun at Floriduh type deal, but that really gets me for some reason.

One of the many things I learned in law school: Don't drive dirty.

Or, if you must, take the advice of Jay-Z: "Well my glove compartment is locked, so is the trunk in the back, and I know my rights so you gon' need a warrant for that."

it was only $1.67 so I didn't bother going back for it.

She really didn't think her whole plan through. I blame the media which has scared parents into thinking that if you leave your child alone in public, someone will run off with it.

See, if you really want to get rid of your unwanted child, you "forget" to drop it off at daycare and leave it in the car in and go about your daily routine. (This works best in the summer.) The Police and DA rarely charge the parent if the kid dies because, "The parent has suffered enough." If Casey Anthony had done that, there never would have been a trial.

/Sorry, I was slightly off-topic, but it does bother me that many parents have not even been charged with negligent homicide in that situation.

2012-08-15 09:48:14 PM  
CSB:

Back in the 60's my Grandmother was a police officer in Brielle, NJ. One night she got a call from the local Shop-Rite that a local notorious pill-addicted hausfrau had left her toddler (name of said toddler: "Durr Sexton". You can't make this stuff up) in a shopping cart after loading her groceries into her car and driving off. Whereupon young Durr was howling in the parking lot until someone noticed and called the police. So Gramma went and got him and brought him home to his mother. No media coverage, no child protective services, no foster care. This was the 1960's.

Actually,

as being a lost kid once, I can say, that sentiment is not lost on me, and my heart goes out to the child.

When did ye forget the value of a child's perspective to the human perspective?

Quit sexualizing children now, please.

Thank you.

My BIL & FIL did this once. My wife's sister was recovering from childbirth, so her father and her husband took the newborn baby girl with them to the department store where the new mom worked. They went there to pick up my SIL's paycheck. All the othe ladies were oohhing and aahhing, and passing the baby around. The new dad and grandpa got so busy talking that they ambled on out of the store and were half-way home before they realized they had forgotten something. Grandpa refused to get out of the car, so the new dad had to sheepishly walk back into the store to the disdainful glares of the sales ladies. It's beed thirty years and that story still gets re-told at least once a year.
 
2012-08-15 09:57:52 PM  
How does someone legitimately forget a toddler? Whenever I'm out shopping, any child that isn't in the arms of an adult, or in a cart, is running around, screaming and shouting while pulling anything they can get their slimy mitts on off the shelves.

/wait, black mother and child, honest mistake, well-behaved and docile babby. Nothing to see here.

This is why I pay my kids (currently ages 4 and 6) 25 cents anytime they can properly answer the question,

"What's my cell-phone number?"

They also know their address, home phone, and dad's cell #.

Oh yeah, and our last names.
