NFW

Lady with fidgety toddler: "I've been doing better on the new medication... Hey, can I borrow your iPhone?"

Dr. Grumpy: "Um, why? Do you need to make a call?"

Lady with fidgity toddler: "No, but Jessica broke mine yesterday, so I need to give her something to play with."

Let me guess: She didn't bring anything for her toddler herself.

Did her medication impair common sense by any chance?

LOL My sister could totally relate to this......my nephew threw her iPhone in the toilet so she had to get a new one. IDK why she lets them (neice and nephew) play with her phone. Too damn expensive to f*** around with! ~Francine

What happened to the diaper bag filled with necessities such as diapers, wipes, bottles and TOYS??

Mama D said...

NFW indeed! Moron...way to expect everyone else to entertain your kids instead of bringing stuff for them yourself!

This is the time for Dr. G's patented toddler-proof (as opposed to bulletproof) case.
He ought to sell that
BTW, the gun ad is back.

How about some drug samples?

WTF?

Ok, I totally let my toddler play with my phone, but ????

Item 1: If the kid actually broke my phone instead of quietly "playing" tetris, he'd not be touching another phone of any variety for a long time.

Item 2: If the kid had a history of breaking anything - even a cheapie pencil - no way would I ask to borrow that item. WTF I don't even...

I feel sorry for the kid. You know everyone shudders when they see this kid coming if that is the kind of social skills the parent is instilling.

Ms Donna:

Everyone sees different ads when they load a webpage. They track what you do, what you buy, what you google and tailor the ads you see. You're seeing gun ads. Not everyone is.

Hey, at least she wasn't changing her kid's diaper on your desk...right? :)

"No problem, LWFT! I actually keep them right here in this drawer for these moments! I'll add the $650 to your bill! Be warned, though, these aren't covered by your medical insurance! How would you like to pay for it; cash, or charge we no longer take checks since the last four came back NSF! What color case would you like? I throw those in for free?"

Wow! Brass ones, that's for sure!

Why doesn't the Mom of the toddler simply give her the broken phone to play with? Was it smashed to bits with a hammer?

I love the paying for a new phone out of pocket idea and throwing in the free case, nice touch.

No but here's a bottle cap for her to play with instead. 1920s style.

Just curious: is this the same oblivious parent from this post?

No, I hadn't even realized I was recycling names.

Suggest she google Otter Box and the like (as someone above suggested) ...?
