So I was scrolling on the Daily Mail website today and the first story to grab my eye was that an American woman has been arrested after her 5-year-old daughter got burnt when using the sunbeds. What the hell.
Forty four-year-old Patricia Krentcil, who looks about 70 because she’s clearly been bashing the sunbeds a little too much, claims she hasn’t done anything wrong and is a ‘wonderful mother’.
Am I the only one who thinks this woman is crazy? Who lets their 5-year-old use sunbeds? Has she even thought about how she is increasing her daughter’s chance of skin cancer, and who says that you have to be tanned anyway, being pale is just as beautiful.
Another ridiculous story that I saw today was that nearly half of 2,000 British women that were asked would consider getting pregnant to take a year off work. Are they mad?
Now I’m not a parent myself but I’d imagine that most jobs are a walk in the park compared to raising a child.
It’s completely selfish, and stupid. If you hate your job so much then quit and find a new job BEFORE you have children so that you can at least support them properly.
Surely these women realise that they will have to go back to work eventually, and the chance is if they hated it 12 months ago, they’re going to hate it even more with the added stress of a child at home.
