I know, no one likes a complainer.  Buuuuuut, everyone needs to complain sometime, and I think these are valid complaints, so here I go.

1.  If you're baby-sitting, it's 100% NOT COOL to take the kids to Chick-Fil-A and let them run wild and scream loudly in the play area while you sit and chat with friends.  I do not like to tell other children how to act, but when you didn't even look at them in a 30 minute time frame, I had to tell them to stop screaming and jumping on the slide.

2.  Never let your child (or a child you're baby-sitting, in this instance,) go to Chick-Fil-A shoeless and in a bikini.  All kinds of eww-ness abounds with this.

3.  If you're a man, whether you're selling something, asking for money, telling people about your great cause, or whatever, do NOT approach a woman who is alone with children at a gas station.  It's creepy, it's hot outside, and yeah, it's creepy.  

4.  If you live on a busy road and your mailbox is across the busy road, dude, you gotta LOOK both ways before you cross the road.  Thank goodness my brakes work.  (The guy seriously didn't even look at me once!)

5.  People like to hear "thank you."

That is all for this fine evening.  Do you have any rants?  Spill 'em here, I'll listen.  đź™‚

  1. My babysitter better NOT be taking my kids to chick-fil-a without my permission 🙂 
    Don't you learn to look both ways in parking lots, crossing stretts, etc when you start walking???

  2. THis is funny!! You mean I cant send my three year old to a fast food restaurant Naked and shoeless- BUmmer,lol

  3. These amused me! I have one from this weekend — if there is a continental breakfast in the common area of the hotel, do not come down in your pajamas! Please just get dressed and put on some shoes!

  4. How about, if you are riding the tram back to your car at Dollywood, make sure you get your BABY when you get off!   We seriously saw this; someone was holding this lady's baby for her while she was trying to set up the carseat/stroller; she walked off with the stroller and forgot her kid!!  They had to stop the tram to give the baby back.  That poor woman must have been seriously sleep deprived.
