Pretty funny:) Reminds me of dinner last night. We took the twins and baby to dinner after their soccer practice at our local sushi place. We live in a college town so the place was full of students etc.
Table near us was made up of 6 couples.


Son poured his water on the table. Baby dropped the spoon he was sucking on on the floor

I totally respect someone's right not to have children (if you go to the blog you can see the children by choice group has come down hard on Lindsay).

Oh I agree. Our kids don't run around the resteraunt, ever. They were well behaved up till we were leaving then DS pushed DD. Sigh.


Its just a bit louder with kids than without. But this is a college centric sushi place with plastic chairs. Dinner at 5.30 p.m. Totally appropriate to bring kids.



Oh and we tip well, very well:) I've been taking them there since they were 18 months old!

The CL lives in the DC Metro area. You don't have to look very far to find all the Expatriate Entitled Folk (aka congresscritters and their staff) around these parts. I figure that's how they get elected (and employed by the congresscritters)--the states don't want them at home, either.

I've seen the sort of thing the OP described on enough occasions to know it happens regularly. In EVERY instance? Well, of course not. As filled to the brim as DC is with the Expatriate Entitled from all the other states in the union, there are still more polite people than rude ones (case in point on this board--the majority of responders here didn't flat out call the CL blog entry a lie). But there's enough that what the CL wrote is hardly unbelievable.

YMMV.
