I know this may sound stupid, and the title doesn't help, but this actually happened not too long ago. I've seen parents doing some stupid shit with their kids, but this was by far one of the most retarded things I've ever seen them do, mainly because of how oblivious they were as to how retarded it was. My brother and I were getting back from some last minute christmas shopping at the mall. Most of the roads were either iced over or covered in snow, but we were prepared. Anyway, on our way up, we saw something that I'm guessing will probably be in the newspaper soon.
There were two kids playing in the middle of the street. Normally, I wouldn't consider this a problem but there was one little problem. One of them was on a dirt bike, the other was on an ATV. Not only is this illegal, but it's also extremely stupid. I think I might have mentioned this before, but a lot of the people living in the neighborhood are so retarded that they probably have to cover up all of the electric sockets in their houses so they don't accidentally jam their genitalia in them. They seem to be convinced that their cars are equiped with space age technology that allows them to pass through any objects in their path and so they often drive right down the middle of the road at about 45 mph regardless of whether or not they're coming up on a blind corner.
The worst part though, was the fact that the parents and what looked like a 2 year old were standing at the bottom of their driveway and watching the kids try to do donuts on the icy road. As my brother and I were going by, the 2 year old started started to dart out into the middle of the street. The mom made a grab for him and knocked him over instead. Fortunately, my brother was able to stop before he hit the kid. The Mom stood there staring stupidly at the kid while the dad went over and picked his kid up off the street. He waved to us like nothing happened. My brother flipped him off, called him a moron and then we went on our way. I'm not sure I want to read the newspaper tomorrow. :\
