No kidding.  3 year olds will get you top-shelf tail, from sorority chicks to cougar professors.

It wasn't known which class Gurbanzada was attending.

Parenting?  I bet it was parenting.
 
2013-04-10 04:23:25 PM
At that point, does it really matter what class the guy was taking, when he had no class in the first place?

That being said, it is kindof a cruel option to have to choose between babysitting and taking the class you're likely taking to improve your financial situation..

At least it wasn't a strip club or a bar like some parents of the year.

Whoah, I see someone tried to kick off "l'il sizzler" season early. Unfortunately, the temperature was only in the 50s, so sorry dude, you're still stuck with that kid. The key to proper post-natal abortion is to pull the l'il sizzler trick when the temperature is in the 80s, and always to remember to act as sad as possible afterwards about "forgetting" your kid in the car, so the authorities will utter the magic words "I think they've suffered enough" and let you off with a light slap on the wrist.

I hate to admit this, but I left my 2 year-old in the car once.  It was intentional, 35 minutes.  It was cool out, he was asleep and I have tinted windows.  Do I wish I could have done something differently?  Yes, I wish I'd have known I had another 20 minutes before he was going to wake up.

back in the day when I was about 5yrs old, there were few daycares around at the time, she had no babysitter for me and let's face it the late '70's/early 80's were a different time.  My mom left me in one of the breakrooms in the building her class was in all by my lonesome.
I didn't care cause they had GiJoe on the TV, so I was all good

Try keeping your cell phone/house keys in your kid's diaper and just use extra diaper ointment for any resulting rash on your hands or the kid.

No kidding. It is completely unfair to expect someone to take responsibility for their kids. It isn't like that person had any control over the kid being born in the first place or anything.

This is why we need universal daycare. We should be helping all of these poor parents who had such a burden hoisted on their shoulders with absolutely no say in the matter.
 
2013-04-10 05:45:22 PM
The child was evaluated at the scene, found to be unharmed and released to the child's mother.

That's going to be one hell of an awkward dinnertime conversation.

Your sarcasm ignored entirely, it is a cruel dilemna even if this guy is a jackass of the highest order (which he was - never leave a kid or a dog in the car like that). There are a lot of families that just can't afford childcare, but they are punished by a system that basically kicks poor people when they're down - they can't rise above it because they can't take the classes like this guy when faced with childcare needs, especially when one parent is working full-time.

I walked from kindergarten to the corner barber shop and watched TV with the menfolk until Mom got off work.  We argued over cartoons v. baseball and Mike the barber usually let me win.

I wonder how poor a Master's in Public Admin. major is.  Childcare subsidies are available for sub-poverty-line folks on workfare programs, but not for the marginally better off.

You ignored my point as well as the sarcasm. It isn't punishment when you do it to yourself. Don't want to spend the time, effort, and money it takes to raise a kid? Then don't have a kid. I have no pity for people who can't grasp this simple concept.

umad: It isn't punishment when you do it to yourself.


First, you can't expect people not to have kids. You're here, I'm here, and everyone else is here because of a basic human process. And, if we're honest, how many kids are planned vs. how many kids are unexpected pregnancies? I'd be willing to bet the latter is more often the case than the former. And those parents aren't punishing ANYTHING, they're continuing the human species.

Second, even the best laid plans can fall victim to unexpected medical expenses, insurance not covering something, car break-ins, accidents, etc. Medical bills for their pregnancy, for instance, can approach 100k even for normal births, and this guy may have had to go back to school to find a job to feed his family. It's not exactly a job seeker's market right now.

Third - You know literally nothing about this guy's background outside of this incident, and assuming that it's the product of irresponsibility is ignoring the nature of life to throw curveballs when we least expect them. So, unless you've literally had ZERO unexpected circumstances come up that forced you to make a choice like the guy in the article, either think before you mock, or try to put yourself in their shoes.

This isn't the farking '40s. Birth control of all kinds is cheap and easily available. I don't expect people not to have kids. I expect them to have their shiat together before they have kids. Unfortunately, maybe 1 in 10 actually do it. Your bed, lie in it.

Psst..your lack of basic human compassion is showing, but i'm sorry for your apparent level of anger. That can't be healthy.

PS - condoms break, and not a single form of birth control is 100% effective. I know three people that tried to do the right thing (IE, birth control) but ended up with a kiddo anyway, and that can't be that uncommon.

Yeah , just looked it up on the birth control pills. they have an 8 PERCENT failure rate.  How does your "perfect planning" scenario play out when even that single variable is introduced?

I'll leave you with this - why should a parent even consider YOUR viewpoint (IE, "I expect them to..") when the only thing you seem to bring to society is a bitter, unrealistic, and impractical world view on how things should be?

This is what happens when you leave a small child in a car with a baby in the baby seat, "run into" the house to change clothes, the small child finds a lighter, lights some paper on fire, 15 MINUTES later
you hear people outside yelling fire, run outside to see the baby badly burned.  Baby is still in the burn
unit clinging to life.  The "aunt" baby sitter is most likely being charged for child neglect (stupidity would be a good charge, but we don't have that one).

I have had sex literally thousands of times. I am female and have been on hormonal birth control since my late teens. I am in my early 30's. I have never been pregnant, never will be. Why? I always use two forms of birth control. I take my pill, the man either needs to wear a condom or if in a serious relationship and we've gone in for std testing, pull out. If the man is not willing to do this, no nookie. It is very much within your power to not become pregnant. People who say they are on the pill-taken every day- and partner wore a condom and they got preggers? They are lying. Many people seem to put more thought and planning into their vacations than reproduction. It disgusts me.

I know you're probably being sarcastic, but just recently a parent in NZ left their kids in the car and  they set it alight with the lighter.

So for god's sake, if you are going to leave your kids in the car for a few minutes (which I actually have no problem with) take the lighter out.

As the parent of two kids (11 and 7 now), I have never forgotten that I had a child in the car.  I have forgotten briefly that I <i>didn't</i> (drove to day care when I didn't have 'em), but that's a no-harm-no-foul situation.  I'm a fairly forgetful dude, but I am mystified by those stories.

I absolutely expect people who can't farking afford a kid to not have one. That's exactly how it should work. As for 'unexpected' pregnancies, I'll give you that one. But there are no unexpected births regardless of what the utter farking morons on TLC would like to claim.

Somaticasual: So, unless you've literally had ZERO unexpected circumstances come up that forced you to make a choice like the guy in the article, either think before you mock, or try to put yourself in their shoes.


I have never had an unexpected circumstance come up wherein I had to leave a farking baby in a car or skip a class.

dee231: Many people seem to put more thought and planning into their vacations than reproduction. It disgusts me.


It's like goddamn fetus roulette with some people. I met one, four kids, four baby daddies, no job, pregnant again.

'I don't know how this keeps happening.'

Either she was the dumbest human being ever to live or she was lying her farking head off.

umad: There is an answer for that too.


Because pregnancy might be an accident, but birth never is.
