Don't Ride in the Back!


My aunt Beth sent my Dad an e-mail today listing the attrocities committed against people of their age by thier parents. He was just agreeing and laughing. But I couldn't believe it! Here are some examples from the list.

Their mothers took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes.

They were put to sleep on thier tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints.

They had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when they rode our bikes, they had no helmets.

As infants & children, they would ride in cars with no car seats, booster seats, seat belts or air bags.
Kids rode in the back of trucks regularly!
Wow, good thing people have gotten a clue in the past 30 years. I want to LIVE!

I remember when the only dangerous thing about riding in the back of a truck was when you rode on top of the wheel well! We would ride for miles in the back of the truck.
