What I don't get is how a parent can bring a sweaty kid, with a dirty, smelly uniform, into a sit down restaurant. A McDonald's drive through? Sure. If I'm dropping a bundle for a steak at Ruth's Chris Steak House, I don't want some smelly kid, in a sweaty uniform, sitting at the next table.

Go home, shower, put on some clean clothes, and then go out for a family dinner.

Why can't they be like we were, perfect in every way?
What's the matter with kids today?

Damn neighbor kids are back on my front lawn again. I'll get them good this time, I'll turn the hose on them.
