Brat, 4, Takes Mother's SUV On A Joyride

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A 4-year-old boy escaped serious injury after driving off in his mother`s sport utility vehicle, flipping it and crashing in Southern California, police said."


The mischievous brat managed to climb into the driver`s seat of the SUV and put it in gear while his hapless mother stood outside it.


This would have been a good teaching moment if the kid hadn`t walked away with only a few bruises. If the tiny monster had broken every bone in his body, the mother`s wods of rebuke might have carried more weight.

If the mom has any sense she will whack his backside and give him a couple more bruises, to make sure he won`t engage in any more shenanigans.

What`s up with kids today? When I was a wee lad I was content to play with my stick pony!
