Last night, my son and I decided to go to the movies, and we walked to our local theatre.
While standing at an intersection waiting for the light to change, there was a boy there with his parents who was about ten years old.
The light was on the "DON'T WALK" signal.
All of a sudden these two adults look at each other, start giggling, and RUN ACROSS the intersection, all the while dodging oncoming traffic!!!!
The boy was left standing there, screaming, "MOM..DAD!"
And for the love of god they were urging him to follow them!!!!
The father said..
"Come on, you're a kid they have to stop for you!"
the mother said..
"Hurray up we are waiting for you!"
My son and I stared at each other in utter disbelief. I swear my jaw dropped so much I had to pick it up off the sidewalk.
But this kid was not stupid like his parents. He shouted across the street.
"You guys are supposed to wait for the light to change! You are supposed to be responsible!"
And thats what he did. He waited for the light to change.
KUDOS to you kid!
For being smarter than both your parents put together.
