Default "Scratches"

Things are to be used and people are to be loved,
But the problem in today's world is that,
People are often used and things are loved.

Let's be careful to keep this thought in mind:
Things are to be used, but People are to be loved ...

This makes very little or no sense at all.

#1. If the man were polishing the car as stated, a 4-year-old boy wouldn't have had time to write "Love You Dad" or anything else before getting caught.

#2. In order to allegedly beat the child's hand with a wrench, he would have to thrown down the polishing cloth, grab the wrench with one hand and hold the child's arm with the other so not realizing that he was using a wrench doesn't hold water even if it was in a fit of anger.

#3. I'm certainly no medical expert but losing all his fingers due to multiple fractures seems a little far-fetched but I suppose it's possible.

I think you are trying to analyze this too much. This is one of those fictional stories meant to teach a lesson.

I realize that the story was meant to teach a lesson but it can also be taught without stretching the truth.

Agreed - the author probably thought it would be better if they made it more dramatic.
