i am beginning to understand why single and childfree adults end up in dive bars for meals. we ventured out today to get some lunchy and ended up at a favorite restaurant of ours over off NE Broadway in Irvington. we were enjoying our meal, a meatball sandwich and a salad medley when two couples and a screaming kid were seated just behind me. this was one of those situation where a parent was either clueless about what the kid was doing, or didn't care. i am opting for the "didn't care" angle because they didn't do anything to keep the kid from screaming in my ear for 5 minutes. seriously - SCREAMING! and children have a scream power that rivals any horror movie.
my plea - just like you woudn't take your small child to a movie, if your kid is screaming at the back of other patron's heads, please take them outside or ask them to be quiet. we're paying just as much as you and have a right to enjoy our meal without the screaming kid as a side dish.
oh and to add to this, we hurried back home in order to make a sale off craigslist and then the buyer emailed at the proposed time and told me something about having to reschedule due to a birthday party for a KID or something shity. why is this happening to me today?
