That call you never want to get
Posted 07 October 2012 - 04:51 PM
"Hello, this is Officer ____ with the _____ Police. Your daughter was in a car accident. We need you to meet us here."
Fortunately, my daughter was OK, just a little shaken up. It seems that, instead of walking to her friend's house like they said they would, they got a ride with a drunk 17-year old. He went down a dead end street and hit the guardrail at the end going 30 MPH. The girl in front was banged up between the seatbelt and air bag. The girls in back were tossed around a bit, but fortunately were belted in and didn't get hurt too badly. The driver is in a lot of trouble.

My daughter and her friends are charged with extreme foolishness by their parents.

I have a deal w my cousin who is going to school ten minutes from me (1.5 hours from her parents) that no matter what time it is or how drunk she is she'll call me instead of getting in a car w a drunk and I won't tell her dad. most of the times kids make these bad choices cuz they're scared of calling home and letting their parents know they were drinking/w people drinking/not where they were supposed to be. But a cousin...I can keep a secret and get her home safely

But the other phone call you never want to get from your son: "Ma, you know how girls really don't like pubic hair down there? How much is too much to take off?" "Son, leave it alone." "Um...It's kinda too late."

My parents got the call my senior year of hs, my boyfriends sister and I were on the way home from softball practice and we hit by a drunk driver. I made her call my parents instead of the police. Because my name is Peggyann. After my Mom's older sister, Peggy Ann, who was murdered by a drunk driver her senior year of high school, when she was 17.
I'm glad everyone involved is ok

Sure enough, there was my little John Doe laying unconscious on a stretcher being wheeled out from a C scan.
Talk about bullshit, disgusting emotions. So glad your daughter is OK and that my son is alive as well.

Solid advice for all those people that will proabably never ever read this thread.
Accidents. They happen to kids.
Its nice to hear none of your (collective) children have been seriously injured, and I hope the streak extends until they are all as old as Joker.
