There were a couple of beauties to chose from this week and I whittled it down to two - one where a woman beat her boyfriend bloody with a vacuum cleaner and this one....
Mountain Home, Idaho - Associated Press
Boy, 2, puts vehicle in gear, causes crash
Police in the southern Idaho town of Mountain Home said a 2-year-old boy left in a running vehicle got out of his car seat and put the vehicle in gear and crashed through the glass doors and full-length window wall of a business.
Police said the vehicle also had an infant inside but neither child was injured in the crash Friday that smashed the front of the Big Smoke shop.
Police said the children's 25-year-old mother left the vehicle running while she went into the shop to pick up some items.
Big Smoke Manager Garry Swatzel said he had installed the glass doors the day before.
Big Smoke. Wonder what she was buying?
What some people won't do to feed an addiction. Let's all say it together - Never, ever, ever, ever leave your children alone in a car - let alone a car with its engine running. Probably had the windows rolled up, too. No wonder the kid dropped the car into drive, he wanted to get close enough to his dumb ass mom to yell, "You forgot to leave a window open and it's hot in here." Or maybe he just wanted to get inside where it was air conditioned.
I also must comment on AP's ability to put together a run on sentence. Reread that opening paragraph again. Yes, it is just a stupid filler story, but how many 'ands' can you get into one sentence. I know, it's only three, but it was like listening to a five year old...and then...and then...and then.
As to the manager's comment. Is this a regular occurrence that someone drives through his front doors? "Why I just had them doors fixed yesterday from the last 2-year-old that drove through 'em. Wish they'd learn how to roll down windows."
So inside the store are the mom, manager and who knows who else saying in unison - "What the Hell?"
Bet you want to know about the vacuum cleaner beating don't you? Stay tuned.
