If she has a bike, why the fark is anyone picking her up at school?

Possibly she rides from her parents' house in the morning, but they both work so she goes to the grandparents' house after school, which is farther away.

Grandpa's neighbor - who was also at school picking up his child - saw Grandpa drive away, so he picked up the girl and took her to her grandparents' house.

Doesn't that count as a genuine abduction?

When my kids were babies I was always scared to death to pick them up from somewhere in case I got the wrong one.

Babies all look the same to me.

This is actually something that evolution has equipped us mammals with. We are actually *very* attuned to our own child's special attributes. You could have licked the kids one by one and figured out which was yours pretty easily.

Ahhh... so I just need to lick the babies...

When my girls hit college I may have to try that with their friends just to make sure they're not mine.

Actually I do have a unique way to Id my offspring... I have a weird bb shaped bump behind the top of my ear... something genetic because my mum has it and two of my three kids have it. Never met anyone else with it... not that I fondle many peoples ears.

One of my cousin's kids has learned to yell, "You're not my mommy!"  I suspect my uncle was involved in that little joke.  Interesting part is that nobody pays attention.  A woman dragging a kid thru the restaurant while he yells, "You're not my mommy!" over and over gets nary a glance.

Because nobody wants to take Grandpa's keys away. They are either in denial or really don't want to have to deal with the consequences of an adult male who is too old to take care of themselves.

I might decide the kid was angry over his parents' divorce and didn't care for his stepmother.

I remember when my youngest was just an infant in daycare (probably 5 months old).  I was holding the oldest's hand as I picked up the youngest's egg (thing that snaps into the carseat thing) and I was halfway out the door when one of the teachers gently told me that I had the wrong kid.

A uneasy laugh and grabbing the correct kid later I wondered what would have happened if no one had caught it or if the real father saw me walking out with their kid.  The probably would have kicked my ass, and rightfully so.

Alien implant.  Or a form of Darwin's tubercle.   Whatever you like to call it.  ;)

As a Grandpa, I must admit... I have done this myself. I mean, these kids have a goal to all look alike; they all wear similar clothes, have similar backpacks (featuring whatever super-hero is currently most popular) and similar hair cuts. It's peer pressure, they want to look like all the other kids. Now, when I made this mistake I realized it pretty quick and didn't actually load up somebody else kid and initiate an Amber Alert. That might be the real dividing line between a mistake and a maroon.

Eh, if they're small enough to be indistinguishable it doesn't matter anyway. They wont remember. As long as you end up with roughly the same number.

I've sure gotten old! I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, new knees. Fought prostate cancer and diabetes. I'm half blind, can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine, take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. Have bouts with dementia. Have poor circulation; hardly feel my hands and feet anymore. Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92. Have lost all my friends.

But, thank God, at least I still have my driver's license.

I think there was a study done once that used scent in helping determine this.  They blindfolded 10 moms and had them smell 10 different babies.  All 10 of them were able to correctly pick which baby was theirs.

The dads didn't fare so well.

Hmmm... I'm wondering; what would be legality of stopping this adult and asking for ID, then taking a picture of the license, just in case. A refusal to stop would indicate intent and the police should be called, but am I in trouble for stepping up?

Driving while elderly is not much better than driving while drunk, but precisely those people who shouldn't drive would be extra screwed if they couldn't and the elderly are enthusiastic voters.

LOL... My wife and I were paranoid about grabbing the wrong kid when the boys were little. It's actually what my student film was about. I felt I had to continually look down and make sure I was still holding the hands of the right kids... Anyway, when the younger boy was 3 or 4, my wife was at McDonald's standing in line with him, and let go for a second to open her purse. When she reached down, she garbed the wrong kid's hand and couldn't figure out why he kept tugging away from her. She looked down and realized she'd grabbed the hand of the kid standing next to her, and my stepson was about 1/2 a step back. needless to say, both kids were extremely confused.

Old people are a farking plague on Florida. Stuff like this happens all the time, in all manner of ways. I used to have a car that was somewhat popular with old people (a silver Caddy CTS) and I hit you not, about once a month I'd be getting gas or getting groceries and come back to the car to find some clueless old motherfarker trying to get into my car because they thought it was theirs.

Thank god none of them ever pulled a gun on me like that one crazy old woman did to those guys a few months back.

I've made that mistake not with my kid, but with my wife.  Walked up behind someone and grabbed their hand only to find out it wasn't my wife.  Between this and almost walking out of daycare with the wrong child, perhaps it is time to think about new glasses.

He is Latino. It does look like a bb is right under the skin though. Like sometimes it has that whiteish look like it is straining the skin. I have never mentioned it to him but not to make you self conscious once I noticed it I feel like I am staring at it all the time.
