Toddler gets head stuck on toilet seat
And to think toilet training begins at 15 months! Beat this. This young fellow learned a tough lesson - early in life - that the potty seat is meant for the buttocks and not used as a head gear. Imagine this scene at the fire station in Braintree, Essex. A mom walks in with a toddler wearing a trainer toilet seat as a crown. When the seat wouldn't budge, despite her trying, she thought it would be a good idea to ask for help from the firefighters. They poured the soapy liquid onto the toddler's ears and head, and lo and behold! The ring came off easily. The British firefighters thus relieved this two-and half-year-old from his obnoxious head gear and also saved him from an ordeal that could have been a whole lot worse. Not that he was very concerned about it either. The "brave" toddler toddled off unwary of the situations that could have been. The joys of growing up! Life indeed is a learning process and a complicated one, my dear!
LawCrossing is fantastic! When I am looking for a job, it is the first place I come to. The service is very good and I enjoyed the emails. LawCrossing has more jobs and it is more tailored. Other sites gave a lot of irrelevant results. Your site may have a great algorithm, but it felt like an actual person choosing jobs they felt would be good based on my search. I will always recommend this site!
