heyjoe60 posted a topic in Warnings & Dangers For Families In The PhilippinesI saw my neighbor coming up the street on his motorbike along with his daughter and his wife in the back. His wife was holding on to the bike with one hand and her other hand holding an INFANT high above the heads of the others as if holding a fecking roman candle! Christ doesn't anybody care when they see something like this? I know it's common here in the Philippines to see 4 or 5 people riding on the same bike, most of the time 2 or 3 small children at the same time! I wish they had CPS here because in the civilized world and I do mean that, it is a serious case of child endangerment. I could not believe seeing her holding this tiny baby on a moving motorbike with multiple people on it and the thing is it isn't even her baby, she is the nanny of some renting couple who are at work 12 hours a day. Had I seen this as one of that baby's parents I don't know what I would have done. I definately know what the hell I would say to all of them though! It really fricken burns me up when I see something like that. Had they have been in states they would all be in jail and the baby in child custody. BUT! Things don't work that way here and it seems outside of the Metropolis of Manila nobody gives a damn or even gives it a second thought that something is very wrong with this. Goddamn it!!!
