A father in Germany was caring for his 5 month old twins and a toddler.
The kids were crying and dad was at a loss as to what to do. So he called the police.
As you do… RT.com reported:
The 31-year-old father from Weiden became overwhelmed when the tearful tykes let lose the waterworks in concert on Sunday night.
Unluckily for the Bavarian man, the babies’ mother wasn’t there and he couldn’t reach her by phone as his two five-month old twins and their two-year old sister let loose with a torrent of tears.
Having failed to reach his wife by phone and unable to calm his babies down, the father desperately started looking for a helping hand, or in this case the long arm of the law.
The “Friends and helpers”, as the German police motto reads, heard out the father’s sob story and offered some helpful babysitting tips, leaving the pitiable papa to his parent trap.
I’m, not entirely sure what the poor man wanted to do with the kids … charge them with disturbing the peace? Give them a night in the lock up?
It’s hilarious stuff.
But as I was guffawing to my friend, she reminded me that I took my 8 day old son back to the hospital because he was crying so much. Surely there had to be something wrong. It was as though he was a digital camera I couldn’t quite work out.
‘Nothing wrong with this baby,’ the nurse said kindly, ‘They do cry, sometimes a lot, but good on you for checking he’s all right.’
So now I feel sorry for that Bavarian bloke. A bit. I’d feel even sorrier for him if I hadn’t read that he’d repeatedly tried to CALL HIS WIFE before calling the police. The poor fraulein was out, probably cutting loose with a beerstein and a wurst for the first time in months!
All right, she’s more likely to have been at an appointment, the supermarket or even stuck in traffic – either way, she was enjoying, for a few hours, the pure joy of NOT BEING IN CHARGE.
