We understand that traffic in the city can be a headache, especially when parking spots are limited. But it appears that some Malaysians would do anything to secure a parking lot.
A woman has recently come under fire when she allegedly forced her child to sit on a parking spot for 20 minutes under the scorching hot sun just to reserve a space for her vehicle.
According to China Press, the occurrence took place in a business area at Jalan Kuchai Lama, Kuala Lumpur, where securing a parking spot can be difficult, especially during peak hours. A passerby who noticed the little boy sitting by himself on the road, took a snapshot and uploaded it on Facebook on Monday (19th September).
The Facebook user, named Wynn Tan, said that he initially assumed that the kid was lost and proceeded to check on him. He was taken aback when the toddler confessed that his mother had ordered him to sit on that spot while she returned with her car.
Netizens online didn’t take too kindly towards the mother’s actions, even slamming her for negligence and lack of responsibility towards the child’s safety. Check out the comments below:
