How F’d Up Do You Have To Be To Lose Your Kid When He’s Still At Home
We all lose things, no matter what kind of shape we’re in.
Keys, phone, something for work…it happens all the time.
But you have to admit you have to be REALLY f’d up to go shopping and lose your kid, especially when you call the police to investigate and they find he is still at home.
It’s a Monday and oh, the struggle is real. That’s why we ask you every Monday morning, “How F’d Up Were You?”
And hopefully not as badly as this guy in Connecticut, Colby Parker.
He called the police a few days ago because, well, he couldn’t find his kid. He said he had left the kid in the car while he ran into a grocery store. And when he got back, the child was gone.
The Search Is On
You can imagine, the police immediately started searching. They brought in K-9 teams. They coordinated with other police departments in the area. And the cops also started looking through the store’s security footage.
And that’s when they realized the reason Colby Parker couldn’t find his child in the car is because the kid was never in the car in the first place!
The Search Is Finished
About an hour after the child was reported missing, the cops show up at the house, and the kid was there and fine.
Well, Parker wasn’t fine because the cops breathalyzed him and found out he’d been drinking.
He’d actually driven to the same grocery store twice that day. The first time with the kid, and the second time, without. That’s probably what tripped him up.
A family member was called to pick the child up. Colby was arrested for drunk driving, child endangerment, and breach of peace.
So again, no matter how much of a Monday it is for you, you’re not nearly as bad off as this guy.
And that’s this morning’s How F’d Up Were You here on the DHA morning jolt?
