To celebrate his birthday this evening, we decided to go out to Chuck E Cheese. N wore a little birthday boy crown, and ate some pizza. And with considerable prompting, J ate a hotdog. Games were played. Fun was had. Exhaustion ensued.
And people were people. As they often are. And because of them, I have decided to make a list of the things that Chuck E Cheese is not. Because there appears to be some misunderstanding.
So, in case anyone was wondering, Chuck E Cheese is not:
- representative of the fine dining experience.
- an excellent choice for a romantic evening out.
- appropriate for a group with no children present.
- a place that children want to leave. Like, ever.
- staffed by friendly, knowledgable, polite employees.
- a library.
- a magical place where all your dreams come true.
- responsible for any loss or damage.
- the best place to really tick off an over-tired mother of two who has just worked a full day and is now at a really loud establishment trying to get a picture of her one-year old sitting in a pretend car next to a giant rat as her insanely hyper four-year old throws up in a place as yet to be determined, because he refused to tell her.
- cleaned on a regular basis.
- quiet. (I know I said it before, but it bears repeating.)
- an alternative to daycare.
