Tonight rant

Postby quest on Mon Jul 04, 2016 12:22 am

I know not many people ever read this any longer but I need to get something of my chest .
The mother who was allowing her daughter climb all over the breakwater wire railing while you drank coffee and chatted with you friend .
It's dusk , it's very windy water was coming over the railing at times she was a small thin very little girl she looked small enough to slide through the bottom she was far enough away from you if she made it over the top you were too far away to grab her .
They aren't monkey bars even tho she was close to the top treating them as such . It's getting dark extremely windy causing the water to jump the trailing and she was wearing clogs that are very slippery when wet yes I yelled at you to grab her three times .Only out of concern for your child you seemed annoyed at me telling to relax for Christ sakes I watched her for a few minutes running side to side climbing away before I said anything at all getting ready to run out and grab her You weren't even facing her .
The people with me were cringing
You just went back to chatting and drinking you timmies.
Sad thing is that if she had fallen Would you use the standard "I only took my eyes off her for a minute "for the 5 o'clock news .
But hey hope you enjoyed coffee .

I find it so hard to watch a scene like this. Thank you for trying to help. It takes a village.
