My little local store is known for it's glutin-free products and the like, which are great for parents of kids who can't have it. These, unfortunately, are the same dipshits that come up to the counter with an overflowing cart of the high-priced shit. Then they still relent when their whiny spawn wants a giant, gluten containing, candy bar. WTF are you buying all this shit for if you're going to give the kid something like that anyway?
And don't get me started on deli meals... Being in the Fire Service has it's share of morons with allergies, too. Like the ones who are pranked by their friends into eating shellfish when they're highly allergic.
Their fucking 'friends' are standing around shocked because they, "didn't know it'd be so bad!"
HE HAD AN ALLERGY. IT'S NOT FOR BRAGGING RIGHTS, YOU FUCKING CLOWNS!
Allergic reactions are no joke. My mother can die if she's stung by bees. My step father has trouble breathing around cats... etc etc etc. And if YOU have one yourself, don't be a complete idiot and wait to ask about it when it's too late.
One stupid bitch, I swear to God, had us coming out to one of the fast food joints every couple of weeks. Why? Because the dumb fuck kept ordering fish... even though she's ALLERGIC TO FISH.
And when parents act stupid about it when it comes to kids? Lemme say this: if the EMT treating your sick child finds out that you were fucking around like this with his or her allergies, know that if we could, we would slap the all mighty shit out of you!
We never like to see kids hurt, but when it's the fault of the parent, it makes us extremely pissed. Some of us have kids, like my father, or his buddy who just had a baby boy. MORONS.
/rant. Sorry about that.
