When Parenting Meets Common Sense

(I’m an attendant at a landfill. One day, a customer stops on the way out and puts down the back window so his child can ask:)

Child: “Why does our dog have to stay in the car?” 

Me: “Because he’s not wearing shoes. There are broken glass and sharp bits of metal on the ground; we don’t want your dog walking barefoot on that any more than we want you walking barefoot on it.”

(The father looks awestruck.)

Father: “Good answer!”
