Here is another amazing (ridiculous, idiotic) story from today’s news…
It seems that this lady has her priorities out of order.
If you didn’t read the story, here is a brief summary:
This lady got drunk, had to go for a “beer run”, and couldn’t leave her kid at home alone, so she hopped in the car and went for a drunken drive with her toddler. She arrived at the store, bought a 24 pack of Busch beer (yuck), strapped it into the passenger seat with a seatbelt (just in case), and left the toddler to run wild in the back seat for the drunken drive home.
She was pulled over by a deputy, wouldn’t take a breath test, and they found drug paraphernalia in her possession. She is now jailed with bail set at $31,000. When asked why the beer was buckled up and the kid wasn’t, at least she responded honestly: “I don’t know.”
So basically, she got hammered, went to get more beer, and decided that it was more important to strap in her 24 cans of Busch than her kid. I swear, I couldn’t make this crap up if I had to.
If you are making sure that your brewskis are buckled up, you might have a problem.
