What Happens When….


.…..children don’t listen to rules about bb guns.

They shoot the back window out of their cousin’s car, who just happens to be the local prosecuting attorney.

She’d be in jail now, but he’s nice. He just made her clean up the shattered glass.

    Did this petty criminal come through Charlotte a few weeks ago? 😀 We had a rash of windows shot out–about 100 in my area in one night. And you’re right–what a mess to clean up!

    How long is she grounded? Yesterday, My eight-year old sweetie tossed the only set of keys to the back gate on our neighbor’s storage shed. He was nice, got his ladder out, climbed on the roof, and gave them to her. Her comment? How come he was niceer than you about it? He had to do all the work. AArrg!:wall:

    It’s the female equivalent of my son!!! Just wait till she’s 14. :rotfl:
    Seriously, stuff happens. At least that’s what my son keeps telling me. He does come in handy when the coyotes get too noisy, though.

  4. Sonja says:

    haha, and someone was around to take pictures of the whole thing. 🙂

  5. Cynthia says:

    I really shouldn’t laugh :D, because I know my time will come! Luckily, my boys are a bit too young for BB guns yet!

  6. Estella says:

    Had a similar experience, but with a boy and a picture window—they were quite spendy, even in 1970.

    Anything having to do with any kinds of guns scares the hajebbies out of me – glad it was only a car window 😯

  8. Crystal* says:

    Oh wow. *blinking* I barely let mine carry the BB gun to me when I have to scare off the possums. Because mine wouldn’t just shoot out a car window. There’s no telling what would be in the line of fire. :no:

  9. Carol says:

    I don’t like guns of any kind either. I hope she learned something from this!

    Well, I guess that’s why we make or have rules. Sometimes it’s a good lesson when we do something wrong. One of the best things that ever happened to my brother when he was running with a couple of kids that were vandalising schools, etc. was that the judge sentenced him to a day in jail. I can’t remember if my brother knew how long or not. But that one day definitely cured him. He never ever did anything like that again. Maybe that’s a sentence most delinquents should get.

    I’m not thinking of your daughter here but of a friend who was telling me today about her nephew whose father killed someone out west and now the 15-yr-old wants to follow suit. He held a knife to one kid’s throat prepared to cut it. But he just gets by with “attitude”. Don’t the police realize where the breeding grounds for violence are especially with such a background? It could, of course, be bravado and an attempt to make up for the loss of his father, but still…:shocked:
