For a shark, I can be remarkably patient and understanding when it comes to children….I like most kids….and I “get” and remember both being a smaller shark and raising little ones.
And when I travel, I carry the magical shark backpack…it has art supplies and cool stuff.
Barf bags make really cool puppets with a few squiggles with a Sharpie… I’ve made them for kids, entertained kids and even handed out small toys to frustrated parents.
However, if as a parent, you aren’t even trying to stop this sorta thing….
This is one reason why I’ll pay extra money in theaters to have an ‘adults only’ experience….having someone repeatedly kick the back of your seat throughout an entire movie is uncool…and makes me ragey.
I remember having restlessness and energy and all that.
I’m not without compassion.
But srsly…. parents, be aware others shouldn’t have to have endless patience for this sorta thing.
