Stupid Learner Driver, Stupid(er) Mum.

While on the subject of stupid people, my stupid dog owner encounter made me recalled an equally hilarious encounter way back while I was still living in Seremban.

I was chilling out at Andrew’s place in Ngee Yan Garden with Ronen when we saw the opposite neighbour’s kid (probably about eight years old then) happily swinging along in his swing at the side of the porch when his learner driver elder sister arrived at the house from her driving practice and was trying to back the car into the porch. She had been going back and forth trying to get the car aligned while her brother was happily swinging away.

Ronen was commenting, “What a bad driver! She will probably hit her brother soon”.

Like the true words from a psychic, the poor girl backed straight into her brother’s swing. The swing collapsed while he did a back flip and landed between the swing and the car.

The mum came rushing out of the house and started screaming at the little kid. Instead of checking whether he was hurt, she hurled abuses at him on why was he sitting at the swing. Didn’t he see her sister driving in? It was as if his presence at the swing caused the accident. The mum did not say a word to her daughter. Luckily for the kid, he escaped without a scratch.

The three of us were laughing like monkeys across the road at the moronic antics of the mum.

On an after thought, if you were the poor kid, what sort of values would you grow up with. Imagine being scolded for being an innocent bystander while the person who caused the accident was not even reprimanded? So what exactly is right and what is wrong?

    I agree that the mum should have checked if her son was OK, and should have told her daughter off for not exercising due care, however, I also understand that she probably lashed out at her son in confusion and frustration, trying to instil in him the need to be vigilant and alert at all times. One may be an innocent bystander but should always be aware that disasters can happen at the hands of others.

    Ahaha…. the boy will probably steer clear of the sister’s way whenever she drives. Agree with Pink Jeans.. the mum was probably shocked & confused..probably the son is her favorite so naturally she ticked him off to deter him from straying into the sister’s path when she’s driving, hell driver that she was!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well…I don’t see any grass anywhere so I guess you took YP’s advice. I like the new presentation very much…. simple, clean lines, fuss free. Very nice.

    Pink Jeans & SH – This is the problem with Asian parents.

    YP & SH – WordPress is scewing up my widgets and I have been experimenting with new themes. Guess this this it unless I can come up with something better.
