This weekend I had the opportunity to spend 2 hours of my life, that I’ll never be able to regain, at hell on Earth! This place is one of the most obnoxious and nosey environments that I’ve ever been to. The loud and corny cover songs is just enough to drive anyone crazy. Couple that with screaming ass kids and parents who let them run around like chickens with their heads cut off and you have HELL, also known as Chuck E. Cheese!
The only reason I was there was because my assistant invited my son to her daughter’s 8th birthday party. For a month I was dreading this past Saturday. Even my son, who’s 9, really wasn’t to excited about it. His excitement came from the possibility of received a cool gift bag and eating cake. My excitement? Hmm, let’s just say it was nonexistent. I didn’t want to be rude and not show up, like some of my other coworkers who RSVP’d.
My question is why are there parents out there who just let their children act reckless. I could give a damn about it being a place for kids to play, it seems as though no one there was keeping an eye out on their kids.
“Go on Hakeem, run around barefoot and push kids off of the rides, I don’t care”, says the irresponsible parent. Well at least that’s what I think is going through their heads.
Or better yet, “Aquanetta, it’s ok to step on an adults foot without saying excuse me, step on them, look up, roll your eyes like it’s their fault, and keep it moving”, says another person who should have made better use out of birth control if they weren’t going to teach their children manners.
No, my son isn’t perfect, but he is a well mannered child. As we were leaving Hell, he accidentally bumped into an adult, and said, “Excuse me, I apologize”. The woman looked at me and said, “Wow, he’s such a well mannered young man”. Hmm…I guess children with manners nowadays are anomalies. Let one of my sisters or brother as a kid bump into an adult and not apologize, my mother would have ripped an ear off!
Let me not forget the profanity from these kids mouths. I’m not sure how many times I heard shit, damn, or fuck from these bad ass kid’s mouths. And where were the parents? Sitting on their asses eating tasteless pizza. Sometimes, you just want to haul off and smack a kid, but of course, you can’t hit someone else’s child unless you want to spend time at Central Booking.
Needless to say, never ever ever ever (did I mention ever?) will I step foot into that place. Especially since Bebe and Bust it Baby kids still seem to be on the rise! And the parents are to blame.
