to think it's wrong to leave a baby/toddler sleeping alone in a hotel room?

When you have a monitor and are still in the premises?my friend says she does it when on holiday, she goes to the bar/restaurant and responds to the monitor if her 2yo dd wakes, I was shocked and said I wouldn't ever want to, I stay in the room and read a book/have a bath. Aibu to think what she's doing is wrong? I don't want to refer to famous cases but to me there's too much risk.

I am in fact supposed to be WORKING or at the very least re-writing the kitchen health and safety policy in light of yesterday's appalling slip up re correct placing of open milk carton, so I am going to have to turn my computer off now as I clearly have no self control at all.

You're sounding more and more like a lawyer with every post Spero grin

I was going to mention jargon speak Spero wink

In all seriousness, I hope that the op is still reading this.
And wish that this last part of the thread, was at the beginning of the thread.

That is an accusation at once both unfair and untrue, made without any or any sufficient consideration of the evidence before you. Kindly retract forthwith.

<would now use legal speak, but dont know any!>

I do presume you are joking btw! Dont know for sure, I am not that good with jokes, as my nearest and dearest can testify<managed to find and use a legal word>!

yamsareyammy Tue 09-Jul-13 16:32:48

Dont think you are as good as Buffy with her jargon btw!

Spero Tue 09-Jul-13 16:49:53

Well yams I think that is quite the most ridiculous assertion thus far on this thread.

<flounces in bitter rage>

But in all seriousness <strokes beard in pondering way> I always forget how poorly humour translates on Internet, either that or I am just crap at it.

I am constantly being accused of being angry and upset when I thought I had just made a delightfully witty aside.

Sigh.

Back to work.

grin

The jargon crown is still mine!

<dances in circles>

Spero Tue 09-Jul-13 17:26:34

Damn you all.

Maybe netmums will show more appreciation.

You would cut through Nethuns like a flaming sword through butter grin

I don't think you're even in the ball park. I think I'll need to sit on the fence on this one. Either that or decide to go after the low hanging fruit. Either way, you have been punching way above your weight. grin

I regard my contribution thus: Positionality has been characterised Robert Merton (1988, 18) as taking the role of “the ultimate participant in a dual participant-observer role”; in other words, the researcher is herself a member of the social world under study (Anderson, 2006).

In one fell swoop, I reinforce every one of spero's irritations with academics!

I have read worse. <mutters darkly>

But that's a pretty good example.

<laughs evilly>
