Stupid. Just mind your own business for pete’s sake. Our population is now comprised of millions of Gladys Cravitzs on steroids.
I was listening to the news yesterday and there was a story about some woman whose toddler apparently was crushed to death after a piece of furniture tilted over on him. Well the mother gave the obligatory interview about how terrible it is that “no one tells you these things can happen”, “I was a new mother and “didn’t know” what to watch out for” etc etc. She is now on a quest to get laws enacted. (another madd only this time it will be maf = mothers against furniture) Oh and did I mention she had a heavy spanish accent?
The answer? (I kid you not) It is being recommended to bolt furniture to the walls: including T.Vs; chests etc etc
I actually have two very large bookcases in my computer room that are screwed right into the studs in the wall behind them. They have been that way since my daughter was a toddler. If she had climbed up on one when it was unsecured, it would have crushed her.
Of course, the gov’t did not have to tell me to do that.
