Sometimes it's comforting to see other people make shitty parenting decisionsLike my Mormon friend who, after a basketball game and before driving The Kid, some other kid and her kid out to her house way the hell out in the middle of nowhere, stopped at the small grocery store down the street, handed the kids a hundred dollar bill and told them to get whatever snacks they wanted.
Really? Giving a trio of 12-year-olds carte blanche on snack food?? Especially a trio of 12-year-olds who are going to be at your house for a few hours?
(not surprisingly, they came out of the store loaded with enough caffeine and high fructose corn syrup to power the Wonka factory for about a month)
