Texan puts toddler in dryer

This guy needs some serious mental help - I haven't heard if he was under the influence of anything or not, but either way. . .

I actually endured this at the age of 5. Many of you may recall that back in the sixties, dryers operated in much the same manner as the washing machine - open the lid it stops, close the lid and it starts right back up. There's a reason why they changed that switch method! I had gone down to the basement, grabbed our cat, and set down on the open lid of the dryer to pet her. Apparently, I fell backwards into the dryer, which resumed it's unfinished cycle!

Needless to say, my Mom heard the banging and howling and extricated us post haste! Next time I'll tell you about my encounter with the electric fence that same summer. . .;)

I'm sure I've told you this before, but this same thing happened to my son Dustin when he was only three! His birth mom's boyfriend couldn't take the crying (from a kid with FASD), so he thought a spin around a hot dryer would fix him. We really need more chlorine in our collective gene pool.

Also, I thought I would stop by and let you know that your blog was one of the featured spots on the very first BWR at my new place. Drop by any time!

I guess a joke about kids being dry clean only would be inapropriate?

I had a friend in college that had to remove a cat from a dryer.

His girlfriend had accidentally shut her roommate's cat in the dryer with the whites.

It was an ugly site to be sure...

Ouch! I can't imagine how scary that was for you, John!

I just can't imagine what thought process would have brought that guy to decide to put a crying kid in a dryer. Obviously the kid is unstable and I'm glad his girlfriend thought of her child first and called the police on the guy. Many women see their kids hurt by their boyfriends and don't report it until it's too late.
