I agree with you 100% and am just as alarmed as you that there are any parents that find it ok to leave their children in the car for any length of time irrespective of what they have to get done or whether it is hot or not! Yes it does take longer to grab that bottle of milk or loaf of bread if you need to get the kids out and yes paying for fuel can seem hardly worth it with children, but either take them in or don’t do it. There is NO excuse and your right it is illegal. Good on you for speaking up to this woman, not many would have and i have to be honest and say im not sure i would have had the nerve. More people need to take responsibility because it is illegal and is neglect!!
