I hate cigarettes. HATE them. So if some adult wants to smoke them and literally suck the life out of themselves, fine. If they want to take 10+ years off their lives by smoking a pack a day, fine. They are adults. But my problem is this..
Adults, who by all means should know better, smoking in their cars with their children in there. And what really ticks me off is when I see these little carseats with small innocent children strapped in them with their parents puffing away with the windows up, no less. It.ticks.me.off. No one should be smoking in a car period with a child in it, but with the windows UP.. My goodness! I was driving home this afternoon with my three precious cargoes in the backseat and this minivan is in front of us. I see the mom and dad in the car laughing and puffing away on their cancer sticks and then notice in the very back two carseats. And then I see a little head moving in one of those carseats. Broke my heart. To know that the poor child's lungs were probably full of debris and gunk from his/her's parents' second hand smoke. Ugh. Seriously, there should be a law against that. Seriously!
I'm totally ticked off right now.
Do some parents just not care? I mean they know it's bad for their own health and they have to know it bad for their kid's health. Right?
