[CBS] Harford County authorities say parents didn’t realize they left their 3-year-old daughter at a Chuck E. Cheese’s until watching the 11 p.m. news. The manager of the restaurant told the sheriff’s office that Harmony came up to one of the employees shortly after 8 p.m. saying she was thirsty. The little girl was with a group of 14 people, including her mom and dad who are separated, earlier in the day. The manager called authorities after being unable to find the group she was with and deputies waited until 9:30 p.m. when they brought her back to the precinct and contacted Child Protective Services. The sheriff’s office also contacted local media outlets to try to locate the child’s parents. After the story aired, the sheriff’s office received several phone calls, including from Harmony’s mother and father. Both stated that they thought Harmony left with other family members during the party. Child Protective Services released Harmony back to her mother after authorities determined it was an accident. No charged are expected to be filed.
Seems to me like Harmony called her parents’ bluff…except they weren’t bluffing, and she didn’t care. I wish I was as strong as a kid. If my mom said, “I’m leaving in 30 seconds with or without you” I would be by her side quicker than Usain Bolt on fast-forward. Such a pussy. Not Harmony though. Oh you guys are gonna jet and leave me here in the ball pit? Peace. You guys were annoying the fuck out of me anyway with your “C’mon, honey, let’s take a break and eat something” bullshit. I’m not an infant or retarded, I know when I’m hungry and I know when I want to play Whack-A-Mole. Threatening to leave me unsupervised amongst other pants-pissers could’ve only been a more ineffective threat if you left some tokens behind.
Seriously, you can just forget about your kid, leave them wherever and ‘my bad’ is sufficient enough to get your brat back? Sounds like free babysitting. Everybody won here.
