Really?? Really.

Took the kids out trick or treating tonight. We left our candy outside with a note, since there wasn't anyone left at home to hand it out. It was pretty cold out, but the kids were alright.

So, as we're walking, I start to notice that there are people smoking. Smoking. While they are taking their kids trick or treating. Then, one winner of the night, had a can of beer in his hand. I mean, really? It couldn't have been his first because I could really smell it as we walked past. And, the kicker was he was pushing an infant stroller, and started to pull out that tiny baby. Nothing better than smelling alcohol as you pass a baby.

At least this was the minority of the parents out there. But, it was enough that I noticed it. I just don't get it.

People put so little thought into what messages they pass on to their children. Good thing my husband didn't see it, he happens to be a vocal critic of smoking.

Wow. I think I'm at the point where people can't surprise me anymore.
