So here's a story. There was a snow storm up in North Dakota, so real snow - not like an inch and done, but droves of it. And my great uncle (grand-uncle?) decided to lock my grandmother out on the porch. She's out there banging on the door, crying and making a general riot. So, eventually her father, who was a minister, comes down the stairs to see what is going on. I don't know the amount of time that passed. He opened the door to find my grandmother shivering on the porch. He reeled on my grand-uncle and demanded to know what was going on. To which, he responded, "I was teaching her the virtue of patience"

Is this the same 23 degrees that 10 and 11-year-old boys refuse to wear jackets in?

I opened the door, not thinking, not realizing the time.

Because it had only been dark outside for about 11 hours.

So she admits to kicking them out at 4:30 AM and being so incompetent by not being aware of the time?

I think the follow up is going to be 14 year old kicks the crap out of 10 & 11 year old for calling the cops on his grandma.

The Angry Hand of God: I called that walking to middle school when I grew up in North Jersey.


Yep pretty much.  It could get -20 / -30ish some mornings for my mile or so walk to school during the winter.  I wore a light jacket, blue jeans, t-shirt and a pair of high-tops.

WHAT your parents weren't afraid of a pedo hiding behind every bush, someone at the ready to kidnap you, a killer in every alley etc etc.

We were statistically at MUCH greater risk growing up in the 70s 80s and 90s of being abducted or being the victim of violent crimes. Kids today can't even walk a few houses down for a common bus stop these days. Every kid has to get picked up in front of their house. At 10 & 11 we were riding our bikes clear across town to the arcade through parks and short cuts and never a parent in sight.
 
2013-02-05 03:59:50 PM
What? Did they not have coats and hats? I was out before the sun rose in the winter many times. Usually waiting for the damned school bus. You know the bus driver I'm talking about. She gets there sometime between 6:00 and 6:30 and she only stops if you are down by the curb (and sometimes she doesn't see you anyway and just blows on by). And it doesn't matter if the wind chill is -15F or if it's raining or hailing. You have to be down by that curb for as long as it takes. And I'm not talking about the city or the suburbs where you have buildings to block the wind. I lived out in the country with flat open fields for miles and miles and the wind never stops blowing.

I was damned happy to get a drivers' license.
 
2013-02-05 04:00:20 PM
Sure she's probably a twat but jail? C'mon. Locking people up should only be to keep them from harming society further. This woman was not a threat nor a flight risk. Goddamned vengeance based justice system needs to f*ck the f*ck off.
 
2013-02-05 04:00:55 PM
I remember when I was about 5 years old and it was still pretty cool to show how tough you could be in cold weather. My other kindergarten friends were just amazed at my toughness. Those were the days.

FTA -- "The grandmother griped that she felt like a common criminal after she was cuffed.

Sorry, Mom Mom, they don't separate you into common and uncommon until they determine if your crime involved multiple dead bodies and numerous body parts strewn about.

Instead of ringing up police, Aiello said through tears, the boy's mom should have called her first.
"Is this how you want to be treated?" Aiello told NBC Connecticut. "Or can't we face-to-face, and talk to one another? Can't we talk to one another?"


Unfortunately, she didn't try that whole "talking face-to-face" thing when she decided not to call the raucous twosome's parents to tell them to come and pick them up.

Meh. When I was six, my mom locked me and my sister out of the house while we were in our pajamas. It was the middle of an Alaskan winter, probably around 40o - 50o below. Luckily our dad figured out where we were before we froze to death. Her excuse was "That's how the native Alaskans used to punish their children." To this day, I'm not sure whether or not that's true.

/good ol' crazy mom.

Sure, if it's reckless, negligent or malicious.  This was none of those things.

Meh, lifetime Long Islander here. You can always tell the newbies/transplants by their whining "it's so hot and humid" or "it's so cold and damp".
For pity's sake people, It's NY. Welcome to weather!

My mom used to lock my sister out of the house like that.

Freezing cold outside.

Damn, I had a sick childhood.

You throw a "sleep"over for 10-14 year old boys, and biatch because you couldn't get any sleep? What the hell did you think was going to happen??

It doesn't get cold enough in Georgia to punish the little Farks like that, so we have to resort to plan "B".

If my 11 year old son was at a sleepover and, for ANY reason (even if the kids deserved it) he was no longer welcome then I full well expect to be called and told to come and collect him.

Throwing kids out in 23 degree weather is insane.  Yeah, they can walk home, probably safely.  But that is insane.  You don't do that.

Throwing kids out at 4:00am in the morning is insane.  Even if you are TOO UNHINGED to know the time.  You don't do that.

The woman compromised the health and safety of children in her care.  I'm sure the little shiats deserved to be yelled at.  But as an adult taking care of kids there are things you don't do.
 
2013-02-05 04:16:10 PM
Grandma?  You're supposed to be dead!

I was raised by my grandparents.  My grandmother shut off the power in the middle of winter with temperatures about what the article desribed.  She guarded the circuit breaker with a shotgun.  Apparently she was angry that I came home from work at 11:30 (I was 22 and just got out of college) and hopped on the computer.  It ended up with me calling the cops on her to get her to stand down.

Note: My grandfather was bedridden at the time.  I wouldn't have given a damn otherwise.

hahahah... you too huh? luckily it wasn't that cold for me, but I too was put outside in a t-shirt and underwear around 11 degrees by my mom for a few hours.

She's only one year younger than the woman in the article. I honestly went to see if it was her or not.

The only greater danger of today is some jackass letting his inbred pitbull out for an unaccompanied "walk" as you're going by the house.  Those assholes ought to be burned alive when they do it to a kid.
 
2013-02-05 04:19:08 PM
Kids are such wimps these days. 

In all seriousness--my grandmother used to lock my brother and me out of the house because we were (and I quote)  "...air conditioning the whole damn neighborhood, what with going in and out, in and out, and how much money do you think [grandma has] anyway?"

We would get locked out in 100 degree weather (I'm from Texas, so I am not exaggerating), and when we'd complain about the heat or needing some water, she would yell out through the door, "hose works, don't it?"

We'd lie in the shade with the dogs all hosed down for hours.  True story.
