Okay, so, rant time again!
Tammy and I went out for burgers tonight to one of those greasy but oh so yummy goodness burger places in Boise. Well, when we got there, we find that half the place is taken up by a few adults and half a dozen kids. Now, I'd be lying if I said that these parents knew how to control their child. It didn't take long before the fun began.
First, there was this creepy young girl who was wandering around the dining room going every which way doing everything and looking at everything. Finally, she eyes Tammy's orange crocs. In a must have moment, the little girl gets down on her hands and knees and starts playing with Tammy's shoes. She tells the little girl, "No, mine, go away." and tries to swipe at the kid like you'd do to a dog trying to hump your leg. The parents finally took notice, and pulled the girl away. All the while, what we believe is the father is giving Tammy dirty looks for yelling at his child.
About 10 minutes later, a different child wanders over to a recently vacated table and walks off with the waitresses' tip. All the while, the parents are completely oblivious and not paying any attention. Finally, the mother notices when the child walks up and hands her the $3 she had just swiped. Still clueless, the woman turns to me and asks where her kid took it from.
Needless to say, it was a very unfun dining experience with the kids making noise and causing utter havoc throughout the dining room. The waitress did not seem pleased with the fact she almost lost her tip to a child with sticky fingers. What happened to parents teaching their kid that it is inappropriate to steal?
