Happy...or Crappy 24th of July

While many of you were enjoying a bit of this...


...I was doing a bit of this...

...and the children with crappy parents were in a similar situation as this...


...which is near drowning, by the way. All of the above pictures came from google images. (No cameras allowed in my place of work) Anyway, I didn't see any fireworks as many of you may have. I was lifeguarding. Where I work, many of the patrons are financially well off and don't seem to care much about their kids. I suppose they figure they can just buy a new one if the current child drowns. There were so many parents not with their very young children. Don't get me wrong, it's my job to save them and I'm happy to do it...but it'd sure be nice to have a parent around to hand off the terrified child too after I save its little life. Granted, I'm not a parent so I really don't know how difficult it is to pay attention to my toddler whilst working tanning my flawless, fake, expensively purchased body. My advice...if you care so much about yourself, don't spawn; if you do spawn, atleast care enough about your child to care if they're in a perilous situation or not. How obnoxious. Venting completed. Thanks for your time.

I didn't see fireworks; I was in Vegas. Apparently "Utah Day" means nothing to those people.

I remember those days...I almost felt like taking them and hiding them some place safe and letting the ignorant parent fret for a good long while and continue to ask them "where were you?" so I could see the retarded look on there face when they realize they're jackasses. Thank You

I hate it there. The rich people suck. I didn't see fireworks either because Kody and I were discussing finances- I would have rathered lifeguarding... maybe. It sounds like we both had a crappy, not so happy 24th of July.

I really like your blog! I'm excited to have a way to keep in touch with you. I think it's great that you're lifeguarding...the world is a safer place out there with you in it. To bad a lot of parents are idiots! So what are you doing right now with school and everything?
