I can’t even…
A friend received this note today while sitting in her parked car outside a Gold Coast school.
Her baby was sleeping in the car and she had the air-conditioning running – as many parents do in warm weather – while waiting to do school pick-up.
A woman aged in her 50s tapped on the window and hand-delivered this note.
Seems mums can’t do anything right these days…
Can you even?!?!?
The hand-written note reads:
"Just a short note to let you know that your air con is very noisy. I do not use mine because it is unhealthy, bad for your lungs and most of all your complexion. Do not feel obliged to turn it down, it is only my opinion about it."
"And most of all your complexion". Seriously?
Never mind the apparent 'health' issues that in-car aircon can cause; it's our COMPLEXION we should all be prioritising.
Should babies and toddlers (and children, adults and elderly) be forced to sit in sweltering conditions to avoid such a risk to their precious complexion?
Ermmmm, let's weigh up the risks, shall we?
On a day like today, when the outside temperature was mid-30s, temperatures can reach 50 degrees+ in just a matter of minutes in an UN-air-conditioned car.
I think that's more of concern, don't you?
Since when has it been okay for a stranger to share such 'advice'?
The mum who received the note was shocked and responded with, "I have a baby sleeping in the car".
Friends have since told the mum she should have told the lady to take her opinion and shove it where the sun doesn't shine.
