PREGNANT MUM FINED FOR DROPPING FAG END
Well, just what is going on in the world today? And where are Social Services when you need them? As a parent, I was shocked to see this mother whinging in the Sentinel about the fine she’d received for littering when she dropped her cigarette. See the full article in the Sentinel by clicking here http://www.thisisstaffordshire.co.uk/news/Pregnant-mum-fined-dropping-fag-end/article-361957-detail/article.html
Not only was this woman heavily pregnant (and smoking!), she also expected her 3 year old to pick up a smouldering cigarette for her! She then has the audacity to say she had just “put her cigarette and shopping down for a minute”. Well, I’ve heard better excuses!
Her attitude, and come to that, her mother’s attitude, is an indication of everything that is bad in society today. This lady doesn’t deserve the children she has, as she’s already endangered them by smoking whilst pregnant. Then to add insult to injury she promotes smoking to her 3 year old as if it’s all perfectly normal and also has the front to put her story on the front page of the Sentinel!
Judging by the comments on the Sentinel website already, this is a story that has incensed many like minded, responsible parents. She should have just paid the fine and got on with it. Instead, she displays her bad habits, bad parenting and bad social skills for the whole of the city to see.
Well done to the Council employee who delivered the fine to this lady. The city is in need of a good clean up and it’s people dropping litter like her that don’t help the City’s cause. Who wants to live in a pigsty?
What do you think? Should this woman be fined for dropping her cigarette? And what do you think of her exemplary parenting skills? I look forward to hearing what you think!
