WTW- Anne Tonaszuck

The swim coach at Pembroke High School, Anne Tonaszuck, parked her car at the high school last week, and then took a bus over to the team’s practice at the Kingsbury Club in Kingston.
Nothing worth noting there. Except that Tonaszuck first locked her three year old daughter in the car before heading off the swim practice.

The child was in the car for at least 30 minutes when members of the track team discovered her locked in the car and reported it to school officials, who subsequently called police. The child was screaming for help.

The incident occurred on Jan. 30. Pembroke police were called to the school around 4:40 p.m. to investigate a case of possible child neglect.

Tonaszuck, 41, of Duxbury, was contacted at the swim meet. She had traveled there by bus and had left the child in the car in the PHS parking lot on Learning Lane. Paramedics examined the child, and determined she was all right. The Department of Social Services is investigating.


I don't think I have to get into too much detail on why Tonaszuck has won this weeks edition of the White Trash Wednesday Award, after all it should be self explanatory.

This is filed because it is Wednesday, and this sorry excuse for a woman certainly fit the WTW guidelines.

I think this is overrated. The woman just left her kid in the car to sleep. The child was 3 years old, and was screaming because she did not know where her mother was. She seems to be a very good person who merely had some bad luck.
