Grandmother of the year

My late Grandmothers were both wonderful women, always willing to spoil my brother and I with treats like candy or fresh-baked cookies, telling us stories, and never, ever doing anything like this
Investigators said Jeanne Shahan left the children, a 14-year-old-boy and a 2-year-old girl, in her car with the windows rolled up for at least an hour and 15 minutes while she gambled at the Mardi Gras Casino, WFOR-TV, Fort lauderdale, Fla., reported Wednesday.

"The children seem fine," said Daniel Adkins, a representative from the Mardi Gras Casino. "We brought them inside and they both cooperated, gave us the name of who they were here with and we were able to locate the grandmother."

Shahan was charged with two counts of aggravated child neglect.
Something tells me Grandma Jeanne isn't going to be asked to watch the kids again anytime in the near future. Unless their parents want them to learn how to count cards, anyway.
