Stupid, stupid people

So, there was yet another recall announced…

the Bumbo seat was recalled and I’m appaled. This is yet another company doing a CYA maneuver because of user error.

What MORON puts a child, who has limited head control and almost no ability to move itself around and no protective reflexes on a table, in a seat, and then reports that the product is defective when the child falls out of the seat and gets injured? Well, obviously enough that they have to REWORD the instructions. Where is the parental culpability on this? Must every product be recalled because of a user end error? When are companies going to start saying “Look. you’re a moron. You screwed up.” People need to take responsibility for their actions with their children and realize that they DO have some responsibility,a nd not all of it belongs on the heads of the company.

Lead paint in toys, one thing.

Being stupid and oding your children on cough medicine and using a seat incorrectly, completely another.

I never owned one of these, because Isaac tried it, hated it and I thought 40.00 was waaay too much to spend on this thing that he would only use for a few months! What the heck! 

Is there a way we can prevent stupid people (kinda like my cousin…) from getting these when they are put back on the shelves? She’s the kind of idiot that would od her own child on cough meds, because the kid said “they taste good.”

yeah. Morons.

soapbox over.

    From the CPSP website, regarding this issue: “Remedy: Consumers should never use the infant seat on a table, countertop, chair, or other elevated surface. Consumers can contact Bumbo to obtain new warning label stickers and instructions, free of charge. The new warning label will state: “WARNING – Prevent Falls; Never use on any elevated surface.” Consumers should use the Bumbo seat at ground level, but should never leave a child unattended.” Yeah, stupid people irritate the snot outta me, too.

    On a lighter note…watch your mail……

    I used the bumbo with Sean, NEVER had a problem because if you use it properly, it’s safe! LOL…

    I dont understand why people used it on top of washing machines and such?
