Last year my brother got a fake ten dollar bill as change from a McDonalds. Then he used it at the same place the next day, still not knowing it was fake.
Within hours cops were searching his house. They take fake money very seriously.
Although not seriously enough... Apparently, not finding a massive money laundering business flustered them so much they forgot a vital piece of equipment... They failed to remember to take one of their video cameras back.
A cop left one and my brother had to take it back to the police station... We're still cracking jokes about their 'brilliance.'
We have a kid's section in our office and sometimes, parents just drop their kids there when they come to see the doctor.
Sometimes, I don't mind. But I DO mind when your kid makes a run for the door, eats crayons, gets their hands by the drawers where the stock is kept, and/or runs amok. I am not a babysitter.
I have a job to do and it does not include being your childcare because you didn't get any for your visit. I can't imagine leaving my child with a stranger.
Last week, a mom dropped her ten year old daughter off to be fit for contact lenses. Just left her. For an hour. Granted, she was seeing the doc. But who drops their kid off for a complete eye exam and contact lens fitting in 5th fucking grade?
