April 2nd – CAUTION – MUCH USE OF BAD LANGUAGE
Sorry no picture. I’m on a rant.
I am completely dumbfounded and incensed by something that I learned last night. A mother of a 15-year-old girl told me that she buys alcohol for her daughter, because “that’s what the kids do” and “she doesn’t want her to have to bootleg it”. Then I guess she felt to justify it she threw in, “I don’t drink.” WHAT THE FUCK IS YOUR PROBLEM LADY!??? She also went on to tell me that “it’s not the hard stuff” and that she “only gives her 3; no drunkenness, I won’t tolerate drunkenness”. As I said, WHAT THE FUCK IS YOUR PROBLEM LADY!!??? So she’s probably buying coolers… which have an alcohol content of up to 6%. I’m a substantially sized woman and 3 would give me a pretty good buzz. How is affecting a 110 lb girl? Hopefully not enough to let her guard and good senses down and hop in the sack with someone.
I’m no prude, I know what goes on out there. But I sure as hell am not going to condone or encourage it. Is she not aware that the legal age for drinking is 19. Oh, and if I ever find out that she’s provided my child with booze …. you fill in the blank. Grow a backbone woman and get your head out of your ass. That’s ludicrous. Friends buy underage kids booze. Parents don’t. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for being my childrens friend, but at this age they already have lots. What they need are strong parents. Stop being your kids friend and start being a responsible parent and good role model.
Unbelievable that I lost sleep over this.
