I am so tired of irresponsible parents! This afternoon, when the kids came home from school, the neighbor boy went home to find he was locked out of
his house and his parents were no where to be found. He came over like he always does when they are not home, to use our phone so he could find out
where they were and when they were going to be home, what to do, etc. Only to find that their phones had been blocked from incomming calls. We had
to leave in 15 min. to run up the street. My boys had a hair appointment. Their next door neighbor was home, so we left a message with him to let
this kids parents know that he was comming with us. We came home less than an hour later, and his step mom was standing on the sidewalk accross the
street from their house. SO, I pulled up to let him out, and she was totaly PISSED. I explained to her that we tried to get in touch with her, but
the phone was blocked and everything else we did. She said he knew better and that he should have just waited around the house for some one to show
up, and that she was 5 min. away from calling the cops. Seriously, come on, we had no idea where she was, when she was comming home, nothing. A
couple of weeks ago, we had him over after school to watch a movie and dinner afterwards, because she was out shopping and couldnt get home in time
for the buss. She ended up calling at like 6:30 to let me know she was going to the casinos and to just send him home when ever. My husband walked
him home a little before 8 because he was tired and ready for bed. My husband made sure no one was in the house and had him lock up after he left.
This lady still wasnt home at 9:30 10:00 at night. I could not imagine leaving my 10 year old at home alone let alone locking him out of the house
with no way to get ahold of me. Unfortunatly, the list goes on. I just cant believe that this poor kid got in trouble for comming with us. I feel
so sorry for him, and I am so tired of irresponsible parents I could just scream!!!!!
