fake!married is the best trope and i never tire of it no matter how many are written and how badly they end up being. undercover!married is even better. “we have to lull our adversary into complacency by being as MARRIED AS POSSIBLE.”
Your children are not pets. Stop being lazy, take them off the freaking leashes, and actually TEACH them not to run off. Or, and…just think about this for a second…HOLD THEIR HANDS instead. That has GOT to be more enjoyable than having people stare at you like you’re a child abuser. Right?
Dear Person Who Is Severely Quick To Judge,
I was put on a child leash when I was little for my own safety. Even if my hand was held when I was little, I would easily slip away because there was something interesting just to the side and I needed to pick it up. Or because there was a penny in the middle of the parking lot and I needed it. As one of three kids close in age- my mother who often had to take us places alone simply did not even have the number of hands to hold all of us at once. Even though I knew not to run off, I wasn’t purposely trying to when I did get distracted by something- I had ADHD and I needed to look at that delicious cookie closer or see if that toy really did speak and then when I turned around my family was gone. Even while standing only a few feet away within sight of my family, I’ve had people try to take me away because they could make me “safe”.
My mother got the leash to keep me safe next to her. To keep me from getting lost and crying alone in stores because I was sure I’d never see my family again even though all I’d done was pick up a penny for one moment. To keep me from getting kidnapped because I will admit I was a cute kid who would talk to strangers because I was very tiny. To keep me from getting hit by a car because I could easily escape and hand that held mine- I’ve always sweated profusely, a trait from my father’s side. So I hope that if you ever do have a kid, you realize that not all children are put on leashes because the parents are “lazy”. Some of us genuinely needed them.
But no, my mother put me on a leash because she was lazy and not to keep me from wandering off, getting kidnapped or getting killed. Right?
Dear OP Dude,
Gotta toss my hat in this ring as well, when I was little my mom took me to big department stores alone and had to try and look at clothes with a squirming six year old at her side, and if you don’t know how hard it is to check prices and materials while dealing with that, I’ll tell you—the answer is hella. I ran off twice, and the second time it took her half an hour to find me hiding in a clothes rack playing with my imaginary friends. I had ADHD, she couldn’t get it through my little head that something awful could happen to me if I did that, so she put a lead on me and I never got lost again.
See, it’s just asinine to assume that a parent, especially a single parent or anyone taking the kid(s) out alone can hold on to their hand the entire time they’re out, ADHD or no. You have to carry things, look at things, you have to pay attention to the kid, it gets really hard. Personally, I’m fond of the leads like I had, it was just one that had a loop around my wrist and one around my mom’s, attaching us. Some people need more, some people don’t need one at all.
Bottom line, don’t assume or judge, you don’t know anyone’s story. As long as it’s keeping kids safe, what’s the harm in it? Rather than worrying about looking abusive towards the child, probably better to educate people not to act like children themselves and quit their gawking. Be an adult, don’t pass judgement on other people.
i love how we met and we were super into mighty boosh and then we got into other things and didn't have a lot in common per say and now we're both just "ROOSTER TEETH...."
IT’S SO FUCKING WEIRD FOR ME like I mean Kim you know already I think, but like, it’s so fucking strange for me to have let my RT live in silence and just be gone from it for so long and then I came back like a year or two ago adn was just like ‘yeah this place got even cooler than I remeber’ and then all the sudden like two months ago I was like !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????????????????????????????DJGK;ERJG;BHJDSFKHBJWRJBSFLJGRLDSHBFGRLDBSGLDRJEBHGRJLBSEJGRBSDLFJBSLGRLJFHJBDSF and now my entire life is being re-taken over by RvB, I feel like I’m fucking fifteen again. It’s fucking crazy! You and I should cuddle and talk about things.
