Something wrong with the world today...

On my drive to work I was flipping through the radio stations. I found a song I liked and left it there. When the morning show hosts came back on the air I heard one of the hosts offer a solution to one of their callers. A solution that proves there's something dreadfully wrong with the world today.

See this caller's problem is that she is in a relationship with a man that doesn't want to be married or have children. They, the caller and her boyfriend, are both divorced and have children from a previous marriage. The caller however wants to get married right away and wants to start a second family with the one true love for her.

That's when one of the co-hosts suggests that she stop using birth control medication. In the hostesses little world the woman calling in would get pregnant and the boyfriend would change his mind, they'd get married and live happily ever after. She was truly offering this advice to the woman on the radio, and thusly offering it to anyone listening as a solution to their problems.

Now I realize and you realize that the advice she's offering is a load of crap. However to somebody ignorant to call a morning show for advice the little voice coming through their speakers is the gospel. We realize that the whole situation could and probably will blow up in her face. She and several other people that called in didn't see a problem with the hostesses' solution and offered other solutions from prior experience.

There's something wrong with the world today folks. The biggest problem I see is that not only are stupid people allowed to breed; it's also that they're out breeding those of us with good sense.
