What do Always Infinity Pads and Backup Cameras have in common?

Always InfinityOk, TWOsday Treat this is not, but I can’t help myself. I’m in one of those moods.

It occurred to me today, as I was backing my car out of the driveway, that we are all screwed. Life is going to hell in a hand-basket, and there isn’t much we can do about it. Let me explain…

My husband and I just got a new family car. It’s got one of those backup cameras in it. Fancy schmancy, I know. Oooo, ahhhhh.  This morning, I saw a commercial for a car that has an alarm in it that will go off should you veer into another lane (God forbid you should fall asleep while driving).  My two cents: by adding all of these so called “safety” gadgets to our vehicles, I think we’re just asking for trouble!

When my kids learn to drive, they need to learn that you walk around the vehicle before backing out and that you look back (actually turning their head and focusing their eyes towards the back of the vehicle), before going anywhere.  And, as for the “veering into another lane” alarm, good grief. Yes, please… let’s give people another reason to not pay attention to the road, drive when they are tired, or, my biggest pet peeve, text while they are driving. After all, the alarm will go off if they start veering head-on into another car, right? No big deal. AAAAHHHHH!!!!!!

I’m confused.  What is happening to good ‘ol fashioned responsibility?

And, do we really need to note “Dramatization” in small print on the new Always TV commercial?   The one where the pads are on a beach, opening up like umbrellas over pads that are stretched out like lounge chairs?  WHAT?  That’s a dramatization?  You’ve got to be kidding me.  Might people really assume that their Always pad is going to keep them from getting a sunburn?  And, who brings pads to the beach anyway.  We’ve all seen what sopping wet diapers look like on children frolicking in the water.  Ironically, I can’t find a copy of the ad anywhere on the internet.  Have you seen it?  Do you know where it is?  Let us know!!

Who’s with me here?

And, deep breath, hold it… and release.
