i had a pretty good night last night. i did my cardio, ate dinner, napped…spent some time writing at the blog next door…and then decided to see what was happening around the world.
I came across an article that had my head spinning like Linda Blair!!
I cannot believe some people.
There was an article about a woman suing McDonalds because of their Happy Meals – specifically the toys that come with it.
She is basically stating that the toys encourage her child to want to eat Happy Meals, which in turn will make her unhealthy and obese (in my words of course)
And…the kicker…..it makes parents have to say NO to their children.
Imagine a parent, having to parent their child!!!!
I remember Happy Meals growing up…and sometimes we ate them…not all the time of course.
If we were to throw a hissy fit for one…or for anything for that matter, my parents were quick to put us in our place.
What an odd concept…we didn’t get everything we wanted. Imagine that!
I am not a parent. I am an auntie to several awesome children…but a parent i am not. But i don’t think you need to be a parent to understand the basics. Feel free to tell me i’m wrong.
It just pisses me off to no end, that someone has the audacity to sue McDonalds instead of taking accountability for what their child consumes.
I get the world is a busy place to live in. I get that sometimes a home cooked meal is a difficult option. I get that kids can test your patience and that sometimes it might be easier to give in to a child’s temper tantrum than to try and talk it out.
i get all that.
But what i don’t get is why someone thinks it’s OK to sue McDonalds over a toy that comes with a meal???? AND i don’t get how there is a willing lawyer to take that case.
Wait i just spilled hot coffee on me…maybe i should sue McDonalds for a million bucks…cause hey…i didn’t know coffee was HOT!
oh wait, someone already did that. (ohhhh i went off i know…lol)
Parent your children. it’s OK to say no. Millions of parents have done so in the past.
Take responsibility of your children and the food they consume. Just because there are Happy Meals in the world…doesn’t mean your child needs to eat them all the time. If your child eats a Happy Meal – parent, that is on YOU!
Sheesh. this really pisses me off!
I am in no way saying that McDonalds is an awesomely healthy place to eat – cause it’s not.
I am just sick and tired of the blame passers. Sick and tired of people not taking accountability.
I am just sick and tired of people out there looking for a quick buck.
Some people suck. the end.
(i picked out the Happy Meal pic, cause it’s all bee’s – and that made me happy lol)
