Crazy People

I'm about to say something judgmental, look away if you are anti-seat belt. I just have to say...I am shocked whenever I see someone who doesn't wear a seat belt. Especially when that person is just a suburban mom like myself. I guess when it is a teen, or someone who I feel I don't have a lot in common with, it doesn't surprise me as much. I figure they don't know any better. I still think it is crazy...but I am just totally floored when I'm in a car, like on a field trip for example, with other moms and someone just refuses to put on a seat belt. How hard is it to put on a seat belt. What possible reason could someone have for refusing to wear one. Do they not make their children wear them either? I don't understand. Someone enlighten me. I feel like you might as well keep a loaded and unprotected gun in your house, or leave prescription drugs lying around when you have toddlers. What is the difference? Vent over.

I'll chime in here in a related vein. Why are people so crazy (read that as stupid) that they don't vaccinate their children? People, there is a reason that we don't get polio (or small pox, measles, etc.) anymore.

If you are offended by the above, well...you should be offended.

I sort of disagree in that people have reasons for not vaccinating. We may not agree with those reasons, but they are still trying to protect their kids. On the other hand, what kind of reason could one have for abstaining from seat belts?

Oh they're tomatoes all right. :) The darn squirrels seem to think they are the greatest thing since trees this year.
