Okay, m'people, I think I finally have a topic for the parents and the CFers in here.
On Thursday, I took my parents out to dinner at Applebee's (Where I am never going again for 2 reasons. One is children, two is the lady at the table having a birthday party who tried to take a drink of my Mudslide because it looked so good. O_o)
This has happened to me several times at several resturants. I liked to be seated in the smoking sections of the resturants, since most parents opt to not to sit there because of their children. However, this was not to be on Thursday, since there was a family of four sitting across from us. It wasn't too bad till halfway through our dinner, when their little girl, who I am guessing was around 3-5 since she was talking in full, complete sentences, started screaming and wailing. This went on for a good half an hour until the parents finished their meals and drinks and paid the bill. Neither one of them tried to quiet her down. It drove me absolutely insane.
So, my question here: Is it wrong for me to be completely brassed off that they allowed their child to scream in a crowded resturant for that long and didn't leave? (I'm pretty sure it was damn wrong of them to not try to quiet her down at all, but again, I'm not a parent.) Have you ever been in a situation like that with your own children? If so, what did you do?
I've always been curious to see what parents have to say about this.
