Maybe I'm a judgemental bitch...

But this really bothered me.

I had to go to old navy to return a hat I'd bought for Hugo that ended up being too small.
I pulled up beside a car to park and as I look over I see that there is a little boy in the running car with the window open sitting there with a super sized Big Mac meal. Don't get me wrong, I am a big fan of occasional fast food. What bothered me the most was that he was maybe 4. In the car by himself. He said hello to me. So clearly nobody has taught him to not talk to strangers.
What else bothered me?
He was eating a huge unhealthy meal.
Clearly obese.
In a car literally filled with crumpled fast food wrappers.
I actually got back in my car and debating if I should call in to the police to report the fact that he was sitting alone in a running car in a busy parking lot. Then second guessing that decision, not sure if they could even do anything.
About 10 minutes later his mom (I'm assuming) came out and stuffed herself into the drivers seat and drove off. She was huge. Before she left she set up her own McDonald's picnic on the passenger seat I'm assuming to eat while driving.
It really bothered me.
Why do people make such bad decisions?

Maybe now that I'm a mom I notice things like this more. But it just was wrong to be on so many levels.

Am I crazy??

No, I'm with you on that one. As you know, we don't even eat fast food. My kids don't even know what McDonalds is! So you already know how I feel. It is just so unfair that that kid doesn't have the opportunity to grow up with healthy food options. He has a long, hard road ahead of him and it is his parents' fault completely.

And I don't even know what to say about the running vehicle thing! The million possibilities that could have happened...
