TanHamster: Two16, did you forget to take your meds?

Rex Kramer - Danger Seeker: If any of you people live in or around Boston, can you let me know where you go to eat? It really warmed my heart to hear all of your support for screaming children because you once had them yourself. My baby will be born in two months and although my plan was to not take her out in public, I'd enjoy ruining your meal with a loud baby if possible.
All you other people, don't worry. I will never bring my screaming/crying baby out to where you are eating, it just seems incredible rude to me.
Hit me up Boston people with grown/older kids. See you soon!



How would you ruin the meal of someone who had a "loud baby" and has been through it and "supports screaming children?"

Unless you have a colicky baby or a baby with an acute medical condition, he should not be "screaming" all the time.  Babies fuss, and they will "scream" if they're in pain, but they generally will cry until a specific need is addressed.  I sincerely hope you don't have a colicky baby.  Mine was for 3 months, and it was very, very difficult.  But as bad as that was, I don't go around biatching about it, the way some people biatch about a 45-minute plane ride they were on 5 years ago where a baby cried during takeoff.

BayouOtter: TanHamster:
Yeah, you non-parents have it rough.  When you get home from work, you've got the difficult decision of what to have for dinner before deciding what TV you're going to watch before deciding what time you go to bed.  Or maybe you just go straight to the bar from work.  Hoo!! I don't know how you cope with all of that stress.

Yes, we parents are a selfish lot.  My son is not even a year old, and I've opened and contributed the maximum to his Coverdell college fund.  I've additionally contributed to a NY 529 college fund.  I'd rather my son have money for college than spend that money on a luxury car, or top-shelf booze, or whatever it is that bro-dudes my age spend their money on.

Do you do any kind of volunteering in your community?  Or do you just say "fark them" to pretty much everyone except yourself.  Because you seem like that type of person.  I'm sure you're not a selfish asshole at all.

Gosh, it must be tough to shoulder that burden you chose to place on yourself! When you're done with the cross, can I have the wood? I could use it down at the volunteer center.



You are the most reprehensible person I have ever come across on Fark.

I hope I'm a better father to my son than your father was to you, because he did a really, really bad job.

My mom's dad died when she was 5, but she didn't turn out like you.  That chip on your shoulder was put there by you alone, asshole.

bk3k: ReapTheChaos: IronJelly: What?  Parents suck?  Who could have possibly guessed?

//csb: When the movie Kick-Ass came out, I went to a midnight showing.  a few spots ahead of me in line was a family of four, with the son, maybe 8 or so (about the age of Anakin Skywalker in Episode 1) dressed in a superhero costume of some sort that wasn't from the movie or comic, and a daughter still young enough to be carried in by her mom.  If you haven't seen the movie, spoiler alert:  In the very opening scene, some retard puts on a winged superhero costume, and jumps off a building, only to land on the ground, nice and violent and bloody.   After this family did no research, did not listen to the warnings others gave them, and ignored the R rating.  The male child starts screaming and crying.

Thank goodness midnight premiers here include a pair of ushers, who escorted the family out.  not gently either.  After the movie, we leave, and she is still standing there berating the manager and trying to get the $72 she spent on the movie back.  Funniest shiat ever.  I hope her crotchfruit was permanently warped by seeing that.

Your story had me until that line. Movie theaters routinely give refunds to people who leave a movie early, unless it's in the last few minutes of the film. It's actually a common occurrence with horror or excessively violent movies.

No idea if the story is real, but it could be.  He said the ushers removed them aka KICKED THEM OUT and when people get kicked out for behavioral reasons I find it unlikely that they get a refund.  People who WILLINGLY leave early on for reasons like horror/violence are another matter and probably could get a refund.


No night manager making $10 an hour is going to stand there for an hour and a half arguing with some lady over the price of 4 movie tickets, simpler and less stressful to just give them their money back.

Weird, because you just implied that without a father a child would have faulty development. This isn't because you're focused only on yourself and completely discounting the possible contributions of your wife and future mother to your children, is it?

Kind of sad either way.

Hey, I know what I saw.  I wasn't able to hear them, however.  It could have been some different argument.  In retrospect, I don't think the kids and male counterpart were present.  Someone crazy enough to bring the kids to that movie may have been the special kind to come back to demand he stop showing it or some shiat.

pho75: I took an 11 month old to the Keys once and stayed in a nice, but not super nice, hotel in Miami the night before flying home. As we get off the elevator, some white-pants (after memorial day, no less) wearing bros mention that the "kid better not keep us up tonight." I advised them the kid would be fine. All went well and then, around 2 am, the bros returned from the local southbeach hellhole drunk and roudy. Everyone but my kid woke up.

Bro 1 and Bro 2 then get into an argument about how one was flirting with other boys. Blows are exchanged. Bro 1 retires to his room and sobs gently into his pillow, Bro 2 apparently left. The next morning, I see Bro 1 on the elevator going down and mock him relentlessly on the 26 floor ride down to the elevator.

The moral of my awsome story is this: In my 30 something years on this planet, adults are often the biggest source of annoying, rude behavior. That loud, drunk guy at the fancy restaurant is almost always a bigger distraction than the one or two children present. The annoying screaming woman at the sporting event or concert is exponentially more annoying than the bored toddler. The dude who won't put his phone down at the movie theater is certainly worse than the kid who exclaims "wow" or "bad guy" in a movie. [Don't go to a disney movie and then complain that the children ruined your experience, ass wipe]. While exceptions exist, adults are by far the worst offenders and people who biatch about kids usually need to take a long hard look in the mirror.


BULLSHIAT. Your WHOLE story is BULLSHIAT.

True, but if a drunk dude is keeping you up all night screaming in the hotel, you call security and they'll take care of it. You can't do that with a baby, you just have to sit there and listen to it cry all night.

When my kids were little, the expected thing to do when your kid was throwing a tantrum in a store or restaurant was to take them outside till they calmed down. As a parent I felt embarrassed when everyone in the place was looking at me because of my kids behavior. People don't have that type of consideration anymore, their of the opinion that if they have to listen to their kid scream then everyone else should too. That attitude right there is the basis for peoples outrage on this topic.

Lazy parenting is the enemy of peace of mind and peace itself everywhere.
 
2014-03-05 09:41:38 PM  
And fark anyone who suggests earplugs. No way should I be even more physically uncomfortable, it's bad enough your baby's screams pierced my eardrum heavy metal style. No, how about you use nose and mouthplugs instead?

Seriously, this fetish of commanding "get earplugs" to people who have had their peace and quiet ruined by selfish morons is like telling raped women to wear chastity belts.

Look at the picture in the article: The kid is like: "Feed me, you idiots! I'm not a vegan on a diet! YOU ARE! And I'm bored. All you guys ever do is cuddle next to me and call me sunshine! WAAAAHHHH"

What adult in their right mind goes to bed sober enough to hear a baby crying?
 
2014-03-05 11:20:03 PM  

ambercat: In other cultures, parents feel shame when their children cause trouble for other adults. If children are acting out in public, it's acceptable for any adult around to tell them to knock it off, even threaten to tell their parents if their parent isn't nearby. Those cultures always have better behaved children. Wonder why?

The idea that you can't say anything to anybody else's kids and you should take offense if someone notices your child is screaming their head off in public is leading to spoiled, self-centered little assholes who put no value in being considerate to others.


You've just explained the origins of corporate America.

Civchic: It's about teaching them how to act in those places.


It still doesn't matter if what they're being taught is that other people don't matter.

blindio: Right, that goddamn selfish baby, crying, and it doesn't care who it wakes up.  Stupid babies, amirite?


More like "goddamn selfish parents, not taking care of their screaming child." Of course, you can't really expect somebody with "blind" in their handle to pick up on such nuance...
 
2014-03-06 12:55:45 AM  

blindio: I'm suggesting that parents need not be prisoners because you can't handle a baby crying once in a while.


Asking you to take care of your screaming child is not imprisoning you. It's asking you to do the bare minimum of what you signed on for when you purposely became a parent. Deal with it, and stop being such a drama queen.
