"This is just wrong..........
So let me explain a little bit here on my situation. My dsm is down and It's too cold to go outside and fix it. There's no way I'm laying on the cold pavement and pulling the transfer case. So I'm carless.

Now my girl, I normally just car pool with her to work. Which is fine because we live together and we're both working the same hours and near by each other. But I took Friday off and I opted to watch the kid instead of having her drop him off at my moms. So I was at home and everything was all good untill about 1pm. I got a call from my boss and he needed me in. I work at Burger King in the mall, so I told him I really can't but if I must I'll have to ride my motorcycle in and it's 20*F outside. He said it would really mean alot and mean I might be eligalbe for management come my 6 month review. So I told him sure.

Now I have a problem, I have my son. He's 2.5 yrs old and just a bundle, but I have no way to have someone watch him. I forgot about this detail. So with no options left I get out his old broken car seat and fix the buckles with some duct tape. Then I strap it to my bike and set him up in it. I didn't have a helmet that fit him so I just used a towel and some tape and secured him to the carseat with that. He was snug as a bug so I put a towel over the carseat and jumped on it. I set off to my moms to drop off my son about 5 miles away. Really just a few turns down the road but it was snowing and cold as ####. I was about 3 miles to her house and I got pulled over. Freakin arrested for child endangerment and now they won't give my bike back. I just bought it in april. It's a 02R6 and it means the world to me. They said they're holding it till court to display to the prosucuter and people how unsafe I was with the car seat duct taped and bungied to the bike.

I think it was really secure and I had him bundled up and me being on the bike blocked the wind.

My girl want's to kill me and she's all worried about our kid getting taken away. Right now they're making him stay with my mom untill court.

How do you think I could get my bike back? I'm leaving on Wednesday for bikeweek.

This is BS."

DO YOU BELEIVE THIS GUY? I had to pinch myself after reading this & check to make sure it wasn't April 1st

I hope it was a joke. Unfortunately, There are alot of stupid people out there, so I can believe that some idiot would do it. If it is true, hopefully he will go to prison.

It appears to be a joke, but I'm happy to live in a country where this "make do" is held up in horror. Please read two or three articles on this page and grab a sense of real gravity. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/4026171.stm

Here's the MORON'S second post...



""I've never dropped my bike. I would never put my child in danger. And for those of you knocking my job, don't laugh. I had a great job a few years back. I was working with computers in a decent environment and it all flipped. I was in jail for some shit I did at a car dealeer shit. That two weeks I was out of work, I got canned because they don't take employes with violent crimes in their background.

Now I work at Bk. It's not the best but it's good hourly wage and if I make management I'll have benifits for my kid.

My girl's pretty mad right now, she's been drinkin all day am I'm just kind chillin in the basement. She was crying all morning and being a bitch. Anyways, my mom has my kid and it's considered protective custody so I'm not that worried. Wost case they have her take custody of my son. Which isn't that bad. She didn't come pick him up because the bus doesn't run this direction untill 3pm. So she'd have to wait all that time at the bus stop.

Anyways, I talked to my boy, he knows a lawyer that got him out of fleeing and evading charges over the summer. He said he'd hook it up. But I'm leaving Wednesday to go to Daytona beach and wild out. Can't wait.""

All good choices, man! I can't believe you are being hassled. I mean, REALLY, you had the baby securely attached to the car-seat on the bike with duct tape. What gives? The next time someone gives you crap, just remind them that you are violent and sh*t. Dude, you are definitely management material for Burger King, or at least the burger bar at the psych institute. I would give anyone attitude if they criticized me using a bungie cord to strap my kid to the gas tank. Keep fighting it, man! Let us know how it goes for you.

Apparently, humor--even gallows humor--died just after common sense.

I sure hope this second great depression ends soon! Maybe we can all lighten up a little bit?

He forgot to pad the kid with a few kilos of weed! That would have made the tike safe. I really hope this was a joke. If not, the guy is an oxygen bandit (one who breathes air that could be put to better use).
