Swing she is very small

All fat jokes aside, if I was this guy I would have been very worried about an embarrassing accident as the collapsing swing temporarily turned my life into a cliché. Thankfully both he, the chain, and the rubber seat of the swing survived. Another creepy single dude that goes to the park to eat, watch kids, and surreptitiously take pictures of those kids with his iPhone.

    I think I’d be making a report to the police

    A “no loitering” sign needs to be had. Maybe with further instruction “this park is for children, if you do not have children with you, you are not welcome”.

    Every single large playground or other area that kids congregate in has this issue.

    It’s not illegal, so all you can do is be vigilant (which I almost mistyped as “be vigilante”, an entirely different strategy) and make sure your kids have common sense.

    That said, these guys are creeps to be sure, but 99.99% of them are “harmless” voyeurs.

    it would have been interesting to go up to him and say “hey, dude, you’re a little big for that swing. how about it along and leaving the playground to the kids”. luckily i haven’t come across creeps when i take my nieces to the park, but when i do i am totally going to go and talk to them about what they are doing there.

    Just as gruesome: people who smoke on the playground. Totally disgusting.

    A little creepy, yeah, but oh fuck me this is sad.
    This sort of creeper always seems heartbreakingly lonely to me.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
