I don't usually write on the weekends . . . mainly because we don't have a computer at home. But yesterday I was reading a story online about a couple of really stupid people, and I had to comment. I know. There are a lot of stupid people, and they all have stories. But these stupid people just seemed so "special" to me. You see, they were getting married. How exciting! I remember when I was planning my marriage and how magical it was . . . aaaah.
This couple went to the courthouse to get married. And there is nothing wrong with that. Lots of people do it that way. It's cheaper than a big wedding, and it's just as legal. The problem with this couple's plan, however, is . . . they left their three children at home - - alone. Which, I guess, if the children were old enough to take care of themselves, wouldn't have been a big deal. But, of course, these people aren't stupid for nothing. Their children were ages 1, 2 and 3. Do one year olds even walk yet? Can two year olds make lunch? Can a three year old change the one year old's diaper?
Anyway, a couple of things struck me about this stupid couple. First, they have three children - - SO WHAT'S THE BIG HURRY???!!!! They couldn't wait a few minutes to call a babysitter??! And second, THEY HAVE THREE CHILDREN!!!! Call me old fashioned or narrow minded or judgmental (and I'm sure some of you will), but shouldn't the wedding have come FIRST????
A neighbor discovered the children home alone and called the police. So, you see, it all ended okay. The children were taken care of and DIDN'T DIE because they were left home alone, and the parents got a lovely honeymoon, all expenses paid - - in jail.
I AM SO TIRED OF STUPID PEOPLE.
