I Can't Stand to See Parents Smoke With Kids In the Car

    It's Illegal

    Where I live it's illegal to smoke in a car that has minors in it. The smoker can be charged and if the smoker is a parent, further investigation by Children's Aid is likely.I find it sad that this isn't the case in other jurisdictions.

    This Drives Me Batty

    It infuriates me to no end when I see parents smoking with their kid(s) in the car.  And let me tell you, I'm a smoker AND a parent, but I don't think it's okay to subject your kids to your rotten habit.  I know that smoking is bad for me, and I don't care if you...

    Once I thought of you as the beginning. Then I saw you lie over, and over. Not to step on your heart. The beginning has ended. You will wish I didn't exist. All the luck to you.
