There’s a couple on their first vacation with their kid, she’s 2 years old, they go to Mexico. As the kid and her parents blissfully play in the sand, she notices a figure in the ocean moving their arms, screaming. She points it out to her parents. They realize it’s a young man caught in a riptide trying to get his friends attention but his friend just waves back and goes back to sleep or tan or whatever the fuck he's doing. The young man continues his pleas. 


“Call 911!” The mom says

“Is 911, 911 in Mexico?” 

“I don’t fucking no!” 

“Fuck,” says the kid. 

“Shit , now she’s learned ‘fuck,’” says the dad. 

“Fuck,” says the kid. 

“Who cares? There is a kid dying!” 

Then they look again and the kid has swam to his useless friend seemingly okay. They breath a sigh of relief. 

“Shit,” says the kid.
