This is a question Relief

Last week, I thought we'd run over and killed something. After steeling myself to get out and find the body of somebody's beloved pet, I found we'd squished a bin bag. When has something turned out not as grim as you first thought?

Bad Parenting
I was waiting at the bus stop with my son, then aged 2, a wee friend of his and the friend's mother. I got a bit distracted checking bus times, looking out change and so on and suddenly, to my utter horror, realised that The Boy had vanished from sight. Not in the bus stop. Not on the pavement. Not on the road. Crowds of people around. Ohshitohshitohshitohshitohshit.

His friend's mother saw the panic in my eyes, saw me looking frantically around and asked me what was wrong. "Where's Geeklet?", I asked, urgently.

She gave me an odd look. "Still sitting on your shoulders", she replied.

Totally read that as "shitting".

I almost witnessed a fatality
During a shopping trip I was stood waiting at a pelican crossing to cross the road , not far from me was a woman with a little girl, a toddler. As we were waiting for "The green man" the little girl ran out onto the crossing , straight in front of a car. The driver only JUST managed to stop in time, the traffic was very busy and it was lucky that he did not get shunted from behind by a truck or bus or something, otherwise the outcome would have been horrendous.I remember everyone who was stood at the kerb going "Ooooh!" and while the mother ran out to retrieve the child more than one person muttering words to the effect "Why doesn't that stupid woman. get a set of reins for that kid!"
