This is a question Terrible Parenting

My parents used to lock my brother, sister and I in the car while they went to the pub for a "quick one" after work. This quick one might last several hours, during which they would send bottles of Indian Tonic Water to us by way of refreshment.

On one particularly cold evening, bored stupid, we lit a small bonfire on the back seat of the car using the cigarette lighter and the contents of the glove box. We owe our lives to passing winos. (BTW: Please no more Maddie or Jesus gags, they've been done.)

Medical Parents
My mother was a nurse and dad was a doctor (both thankfully retired now). They say that if you have medical parents you are either kept in a hyperbaric chamber or left to bleed. Unfortunately I was the latter (although the former would be terrible as well i spose).

When i was about 9, I tried to make my own bow and arrow set. Using a craft knife to whittle.(why the hell did they give me a craft knife???) Oh dear. I predictably cut my fingers very badly. very badly. I cut all the tendons in my left index and middle finger. However mum and dad didnt think i needed to go to casualty or anything. So they cleaned the cuts, applied plasters, and left it at that. 2 weeks later when i took the plasters off and found that i couldnt in fact bend either of the fingers. I confronted my dad and he said that if i'd have had microsurgery then it would have been fine. but never mind we cant change the past eh?

Years later i found that they both were drunk that day and they just couldnt be bothered to take me to the hospital and then forgot about it in the morning.


Click "i like this" if you would like me to send a scalpel bomb to my parents.
