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.)

Bit of a depressing one...
My dad regularly hit my mum in his drunken state,Once booted me in the stomach (aged 4ish?) for refusing to put a sword through his kitchen door.

They split up when i was about 5,From the age of 5 to about 11-12 life was peachy,Then my mum got a boyfriend...moved in to the house after a month,Even after my aunt told my mum not to get with him because he is scum and she knew all about him (she worked for the department of work and pensions) 2 months into there relationship the arguments started,3 months into the relationship the violence started.The police were called weekly.

A year and a half into the relationship he becomes an alcoholic,when he has drink he gets very violent,when he does'nt have drink he gets violent.On one occasion he held a knife to her throat,with full intention of killing her,luckily (and i use that term lightly) she got her hand in the way and managed to escape with a badly cut hand.

For some unknown reason my mum forgave him for this and he was out of prison in 2 weeks.Did the violence stop? Nooo...the arguments continued.

May 08th 2000,The stupid twunt took an overdose of heroin and duly popped his clogs.Hurrah! we were free of the evil twat.

My mum died in 2005,She was a great parent,Just had a very bad choice in men.

Popped my b3ta cherry...

Obligatory length joke
