I’ll explain the title/video soon, just sit tight…
So, every time we go out to a restaurant, there is a “game” my sister plays (I don’t think she is yet to win). The game is simple, seeing if we can get through an entire meal from the time we are seated to the time we walk out of the door without hearing an obnoxious kid screaming their head off. For us, we sit down, order our meal, a kid cries, my sister says, “I lose”, we eat, pay, leave. That seems to be the routine no matters where or when we dine. I always have a few things to say each time. I either say, will somebody get the kid a happy meal, shouldn’t that kid be in bed, real nice parenting skills, or, is it really that hard to be courteous and take the child out until he/she calms down?
I know I am not alone in this aggravation. I am elated over what is happening now:
There is much controversy over this, and yes, it is sad that it has to go to this extent. If parents would actually discipline their children [refer to a previous post–>https://3kalb.wordpress.com/2011/09/25/pfft-kids-these-days/], then this wouldn’t have to happen. Even if you don’t discipline, then at least remove the child out. If you are too damn lazy to do so, then don’t have children. People are even saying, well my child has ADD/ADHD, or a mental disability. THAT IS NO EXCUSE. I don’t even want to get started on the whole ADD/ADHD thing, maybe that’ll come in a later post, but I hope that other restaurants either set allowable times for fussy children to dine (like off-peak hours), or ban them all together, just like banning smoking; just get rid of it completely. They are both nuisances, and unwanted.
