Hi — ‘Tis Lenore from Free-Range Kids again. Here’s one that’ll make you (verrrrrry carefully) bang your head against the table: A dad noticed that the medals a school was giving out as prizes were not made out of fur, or cotton, or silk. They were, in fact, made out of metal, with a point at one end! According to this article on the website Kent:
The father-of-two said: “What on earth were these idiots thinking, handing out something like that to children? It does make you wonder how in these health-and-safety days, these slipped through the net. The people who organised it obviously didn’t see them like that but they’re so sharp, I just pushed one into a wooden table.
“I can’t believe someone’s allowed these to be given out.”
The technician, who is in his late 50s, spotted a friend’s ten-year-old son wearing one of the bronze medals last week and immediately confiscated it.
He said: “He was proudly wearing it round his neck and I thought, ‘My God, he’s going to stab himself with that.’
Let’s hope no one ever hands any kids he knows a cross or a Star of David! The horror! – L.
