The Wheels On The Bus Go Round And Round....Deal With It!


Reading stuff like this makes my head explode!!!!!

"Fisher-Price is recalling more than 10 million tricycles, toys and high chair over safety concerns.

In the recall of about 7 million Fisher-Price Trikes and Tough Trikes toddler tricycles, the agency is aware of 10 reports of children being hurt. Six of them requiring medical attention."


Reread this out loud to show what an asshole you sound like.

7 MILLION BIKES SOLD, AND TEN INJURIES.

Not ten thousand, TEN. Ten.

Give me a friggin break people.

Six required medical attention. Note that it did not include hospitalization, death, etc........

This makes me crazy. (OK, crazier.....)

To all the new parents out there, kids ride bikes, big wheels, wagons, they fall, they get hurt. They get up and do it again. But they live to tell the tale!!!!!!!!

Next thing you know these wacky parents will try to outlaw two story homes. Steps are not safe, you know! Look at all the kids falling down steps these days. Little Junior just might take a fall down the steps. So I propose we make everything in the universe one story.

Because the universe revolves around Junior.............AGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

(We think the world is messed up now, wait until Junior comes of age.......scary!!!)

Ha! ha! You know...this reminds me of what happens in my office. ONE situation goes wrong and all of a sudden--we have spent hours dealing with it, 3 hours discussing it, 3 hours working on changing the policy, 3 hours getting the new policy out there....
All because there was ONE problem from ONE person....
Oh,the world is a mess! A big fucking mess and it's all because of a few people!
Thanks for always saying what you think....it makes me feel sooo much better!
Onward!

I could not agree more. But it makes me hate the lawyers whose over reaction is based on them making more money.

You have a very valid point. There must have been some major lawyering going on for Fisher Price to spend that kind of money on major recalls, especially when they're busiest season is just around the corner.

E....Your question about how I get my kids to do things with me. First and foremost--they are both broke students. Secondly.....neither of them live at home so their lives aren't here....most of their friends are either at school or living outside of Pittsburgh working. So, when they come home (especially on weekends)---all they got is ME!
That's my secret.....
Can't wait to hear about the wedding!
Onward!
