I would have said something but it was so surreal. I am shocked the waitresses didn't since the kid (10 or 11 years old) could have tipped the table
over and almost did as it wasn't designed for a 80 pound human. I won't eat there again given the sanitary conditions. There are health codes for a
reason. Ecoli, woms, other paracites such as giardia (sp?), salmonella, and who knows what else can be in human feces as in the case at starbucks.
Dirty feet where my food is plopped doesn't seem right either. These could have touched those things and more (and I like going barefooted but don't
stick them in my food or rub on my table). I understand changing a diap in a hurry but I see the Starbucks person saying something for health reasons.
And I [color=6699FF]see kids all the time behaving badly. Our jobs as parents is to set limits and ultimately raise responsible socially acceptable
people who don't embarrass themselves or worse. Kids need boundaries (not talking about the baby of course) and I'm glad you stepped up and said
something. So many are afraid to do so. It does take a community to raise a kid in some cases.
Well put. Strongly agree.
Though I think Hillary had something else in mind with her tyrannical stupid quip. She's part of the group that wants parents out of the picture
I have been known to put on the card something like:
"That's an excellent way to train the kid for prison.
Teaching a child boundaries is crucial for health, stable, mutually satisfying relationships and civilization."
In those cases, I try to suggest a good book or two.
In terms of sanitary . . .
[color=6699FF]FOLKS, WISE-UP--the menu's have been documented in a number of research studies to be very filthy with serious disease causing
bacteria and viruses. They get routinely dropped on the floor. In many places in the 3rd world, the floor is incredibly filthy. And street dirt in the
USA is still pretty filthy
Again, from my Asian years and the habit there of carrying my backpack everywhere--I have wetwipes with me all the time. I use them on the table and
after using the menu. And I put the silverware on a strip of paper towel or an extra napkin. I don't really care if folks laugh at me being OCD or
whatever. With a genetically blunted immune system, I have to do what I have to do.
