Hush Little Baby

November 25, 2012

You’re sitting at the table and your baby starts crying. Instead of carrying him far, far, far, far, away, like you should, you just sit there and shoosh him and tell him ” It’s ok, mommy is here”, as if he can understand what you’re saying.

NOBODY wants to hear a crying baby. There’s nothing cute or fun about that.  Baby rule when eating in public: Don’t do it! Remember, silence is golden, but duct tape is silver.

  1. Crying babies set my teeth on edge. Everywhere I go, it seems there is one in the vicinity. Makes me want to leave really really fast.

    • Theres always one crying in places they shouldnt be at in the first place.

      • Babysitters are expensive. I understand why they drag them everywhere. But for people who don’t have them, it’s obnoxious listening to that screaming.

  2. …That picture seriously freaked me out…
    I was dining at a sea-side restaurant a few weeks ago, and it would’ve been perfect if two twin baby sisters weren’t howling…

  3. Duct tape is silver. hahahahahah 🙂 Good to see you back and in fine form

    Hey Ross,you know I have done some crazy things at the table before. One thing I always wanted to do but don’t think I would have got a way with it was to lean down and scream back at a child screaming and see how they like it. I laugh every time I hear a crying child thinking about that.

    • I had a real mare of a young niece who insisted on pulling my then long and luxuriant hair. I made a deal with her. She could pull as hard as she liked. Then it was my turn to reciprocate. She did, but didn’t believe me about the deal. Big mistake…

  5. “silence is golden, but duct tape is silver.” – hahaha that is great.

  6. Ahh…I do wish there was some kind of “rule”… is that the right word, I dunno. Now that I have become grey I am getting what I call agism from those at restaurants. Complain and get treated poorly cuz yer old. When I was young and blond that wasn’t so much a problem.
