This guy is a nimrod to be sure, toddlers put everything in their mouths, wth is he thinking? There are all kinds of lockboxes out there, and every single one of them is cheaper and less bother than a trip to the ER.
I am in agreement with your post .. however, I don't know what not having a debit card has to do with being stuborn or what not .. I don't have a debit card, don't want one .. yet, I don't feel I'm living in the Dark Ages ..
omg, I am glad you included "hungry beagles",,,,,,I have no small children (although I do have grand children, although none are babies),,,,,,,,but I DO HAVE a pug who will eat ANYTHING!!!!! moving my ejuice from my night stand to,,,,well at least somewhere HIGH UP until I get a lock box!
While iit isn't news to a lot of us, i commend you on the well written post. We all could use a reminder now and then. Outside of that your BIL seems like a real interesting character.
I also keep my extra personal vaporizers under lock and key. I caught my eleven year old nephew taking a puff because I was vaping something that smelled like his favorite candy in the world! I was at my sister's house. All I did was get up to use the restroom. In the time I got up, all the smoker's when out on the front porch for their analog fix, and my nephew got caught red handed. He didn't understand the harm he was causing himself. The worst part is he loved it, and now wants one of his own!!! It is still nicotine, it is still illegal for minors, and it should be treated as such. I am glad someone else posted this to help bring awareness. Little kids will get into everything and anything at a very young age. At a curious age when his friends are trying to get him to smoke weed and cigarettes with them he felt it would do no harm because I quit smoking using this as an alternative. He honestly thought it was healthy, and I had a talk with him. Even after our talk he asked his mother to buy him one. Now my sister is pissed at me to no end!!! I did not expect the room to empty just for me to use the restroom, but that was all it took. So how do we tell children that even tho we do it, it is still dangerous for them???? Communication. My daughter is curious, but still wants me to quit vaping. She is glad I quit smoking analogs, but she says it's been a year now and it is time to move on from this thing too.
Just thought this was an appropriate place to share my little incident and story here as well. Keep track of your devices and your juices. You never know when there will be a child lurking about that is just curious enough....
Babies and kids are swift too....you have to literally grow eyes in the back of your head-for me, it is not just a saying but a way of life . Always be over-cautious of everything, treat E-Juice just like you would kitchen chemicals etc., keep them up high and or locked, make sure the juice you purchase arrives in a child-proof cap too, which is a major plus. And watch those precious little babies, they are more crafty than people guess!
I hear you,,,it's a difficult concept. I told my children when they were small that there are some things that are for adults only because children's bodies--and brains--were not done growing yet. Some things are just ADULT and should never be for children, no matter how harmless they might be for adults,,,,

And that's fine. Sometimes i regret ever getting one because it makes it just too damn easy to spend all my money anymore, lol. What I was trying to indicate was that it was phenomenal that we managed to get someone who hates anything and everything newfangled to switch to a PV anyway, and how difficult it was for him to understand that juice can't be left laying around like cigarettes. Most babies wouldn't find a cigarette yummy enough to eat enough of them to poison themselves, but juice is a different story.
>>but I DO HAVE a pug who will eat ANYTHING!!!!!
oh yeah, beagles and pugs are always ready to eat ANYWAY... our beagle has cushings from the steroids she takes for asthma, so she literally thinks she's starving to death. Seriously, she sits under the bug zapper to wait for a snack... she knocked over the composter to root through it. Never underestimate a dog's cunning!
Anything that smells oh so yummy to us is going to smell oh so yummy to them, as well.
On top of keeping our loved ones, human or otherwise, save from our poisons, the last thing we need are a few incidents like this. Aside from the obvious tragedy of babies, puppies, or lowbrow relatives getting sick from ejuice, all we need are a few news stories like that for our favorite tasty ejuices to end up going the way of Camel Exotics.
