Being stupid should hurt: Texting teen falls into manhole

By Bernie Mooney

When I was a kid and I did something stupid and got hurt, the response of my parents was usually, “Serves you right.” Had I fallen into an open manhole, I never would have lived it down. There would have been hails of derisive laughter from friends and family for months afterward. To quote Bill Cosby, “C'mere. Let me show you my dumb kid.”

Driving by EHS on the way to work last week...young kid driving a bigass gold SUV...both hands on top of the wheel...texting. Damn people anyway. Stupid SHOULD hurt, but not innocent bystanders.
