Dear Parents

A note to parents: Starbucks is not a playground for your kids. There are people trying to work here. Don't bring your kids here, feed them caffeinated drinks, and park them at a table while you wander off.

Yes, I understand that you're tired of your hellspawn and need a break. I've only known your progeny for ten minutes, and I'm tried of them too. But this isn't the place.

Instead, take them to a McDonald's with a playground. Wherever there's a Starbucks, there is probably a McDonald's nearby. And the McDonald's playground has an iron cage around it. Which is what your munchkins belong in.

  1. If this post seems excessively snarky, consider that it was written after one of the boys - who was pushing his sister around in circles in a Starbucks high chair - rammed the chair into my bad knee.

    (By the way, WHY do the high chairs in Starbucks have wheels on them? Isn't that dangerous?)
