You know an article is going to be good when it has this title: “Fleeing shoplifter forgets son.” Apparently, a man in Amsterdam stole a package of meat, ran out of the store (leaving his 12-year old son inside), and sped away in his car, despite a store employee who clung to the hood trying to stop him.
The boy, of course, told police how to get ahold of his dad, but when they called the dad…he refused to come pick up his son, and said they’d have to contact the boy’s mother.
Later he turned himself in.
How would you feel if you were that boy? Knowing that your dad feels more strongly about getting some meat than making sure you’re ok?
I suppose if it were really good meat…
