I Mean, Honestly, Who Throws A Shoe?!

I Mean, HonestlyWho Throws a Shoe-!

Have you ever had to run from someone throwing things at you? Say, it was a relationship gone sour and your ex wants nothing more but to fling objects in your direction–you run, you dodge, you duck to avoid taking a plate, or a vase, or maybe a football, to the head. Now, imagine that was happening while you were driving. But the objects were flying FROM THE BACK SEAT. Only it isn’t a jaded ex-flame flinging things at you. It’s a raving-mad, inconsolable 5-year old who hasn’t gotten their way.

Yes, I’ve written about tantrums before. They’re the life I’m living right now. If a day goes by and there is not a single tantrum thrown–well, honestly, I don’t know what to do with myself. Does it mean I suck as a parent if my kids throw tantrums on the regular? I mean, maybe. Or, it means they’re kids and I’m in the thick of what every parent in the history of parenting has gone through. Does that make it any less shitty? Nope, not at all.

I'd be lying if I said this isn't how I WANTED to react every time I duck for cover in the car...

Forget the fact that it’s dangerous as all hell to have things thrown at you while you drive a car. Because high-speed death machine and all that. Just consider how annoying it is to have things thrown at you while you drive. Obviously, we need to do a better job when it comes to curbing the behavior. That is something we’re well aware of. I mean, I’m tired of walking into work looking like I went 12 rounds with Mike Tyson in his prime.

Don't make me turn this car around

I guess I need to work on my intimidating “Dad Voice” and start spouting “DON’T YOU MAKE ME TURN THIS CAR AROUND!!” I’m sure that’ll help the situation, right? Oh.

What’s the most annoying thing your kids have done in the car while you’re driving? Leave it in the comments or hit me up on Twitter or Facebook!
