There are certain things that go unspoken around here!
We sneak snacks into the movie theater, even though we know it is not allowed.
We have Jonathan and Emily ( at times) order off the kids menu even though they are both obviously over 10.
We sign practice records when we know the instrument was never even taken out of the case.
And sometimes we say "we can't" when we really just don't want to.
I believe in being honest and upright and all that, but I also believe that some rules are just stupid. Yeah, I said it.
I mean... it costs enough to take your famly to watch a movie these days...it is ridiculous to pay some $40 more dollars to share popcorn and each have a drink. Disney World lets you bring in coolers for goodness sake!
And isn't a kids meal just a smaller portion? Anyone should be able to choose to have a smaller portion, right?
And about the instrument. Some nights, it's just too late ....after school, soccer, volleyball, homework, dinner, baths, etc...to demand a 30 minute practice session.
And of course, "I just don't want to" is never a good enough excuse!
I usually don't complain, I know, but lately we've been spending a fortune to pay for our boys to get into the volleyball games. We are going to watch our daughter play. We can't leave the boys home alone...so we bring them with us. They mostly play with their itouch and silly bands or run around in the lobby and eat snacks that they bought from the concession stand.
$5 admission each x 4 people. There are 30 games.
Seems they should at least give a discount for the kiddos.
What rules do you feel are just silly ~ and almost demand to be broken?
I know I'm not the only one.
