The Kid-Free Zone

Posted on Tue, Apr 29, 2014 at 12:01 PM

Is there a Kid-Free Zone in this city? I mean, it really is a toss-up between the binge-drinking, the desperate attempts at cultural relevance, the wannabe thug culture and the screaming children running amok at the otherwise sober/"polite" venues this shithole city offers, but seriously: If you're a parent, then parent your damned child. Otherwise, maybe I should be at a club or vandalizing the innumerable stalled "development" properties in this town like the others with nothing else to do have recourse to. It's not even your tantrum-touting little fuckers that piss me off, it's you inept parents doing fuck-all to raise your children, which is possibly what leads to them perpetuating the black hole atmosphere of this city, which otherwise inspires nothing and no one. Thanks for starting them off of that early on.

If the entire room/public space/establishment is glaring at you and your little heathen terrorizing the joint, and you just stand/sit there, hoping we'll all look away as the little shit proceeds to holler, throw stuff and otherwise destroy the place—take a hint. When you spawn those shrieking creatures, you do realize that you have the obligation to, you know, actually parent them, right?

I don't know if the families of today are just too timid to discipline/tend to their kids/observe general decorum and encourage it in their own kids, or that they hope that someone else will, but seriously, it would benefit each of (a) us who are forced to collectively endure your little monster and your own idiocy, as well as (b) you suffering the shame of letting your kid inflict its tantrum on us and even (c) the youngster itself, who otherwise learns by your ignorant example (since you're clearly ignoring your kid yourself). If you'd just leave the room with your kid for a minute so the thing could chill out and you know, receive whatever affection or necessity you're clearly depriving it of in the first place, since you're depriving all of us of our damned peace and sanity! -YesPleaseKeepKickingMySeat
