I was so shaken up today. I was on the way to pick up one of my charges from pre school and I already had 2 babies snuggly strapped into their carseats. I was driving past a train station and there was a bunch of catholic school kids who must have gotten out of school early (it was only 10:30am) Suddenly BAM!! My car got hit with a huge snowball on my front windshield. I immediately stopped the car short, got ot of the car and screamed "Are you a bunch of A$$holes?" I have two babies in the car and you could have caused an accident." I then proceeded to tell them that I was going to call the police. One of them apologized but he wasn't the one who threw the snowball. They probably thought I was a loon and laughed when I pulled away.
I finally got to the school with my heart racing and I actually dialed the precinct but then quickly hung up. For those of you who know that my hubbys job is to protect and serve I figured if I made that call I would never hear the end of it from him. It's bad enough we had an argument over pictures that were on my son's facebook page and he was calling me a snitch for calling the other kids parents. I could only imagine what he would have said to me if i called the police for these teenage idiots.
Anyway as I was sitting waiting for my preschooler I started saying to myself am I getting old? Did I over react? If I was in an accident those kids are my resposibility.
