Well, the hockey game didn’t go so well and we left after the first period. Kale had a bit of a meltdown – and what tipped the scales was those obnoxious BLAT trumpet horns that they sell. Some kid above us and another kid directly below us both had one and were freely using them. Those things irritate me on the best of days.
Another kid, maybe 8 or so, a friend of the horn player, told Kale to “shut up” when he cried.
I told Kale if he was ever such an arrogant little arsehole I’d be sure to kick him in the pants. Little kids are rude, and most kids have zero manners and that’s simply unacceptable.
We’re at a HOCKEY GAME where it’s LOUD and a CRYING BABY isn’t exactly DISTURBING anyone. We’re not at a library here. Yeah, a baby crying can be annoying. Trust me – I KNOW – oh MAN do I know. But seriously? Telling my baby to “shut up” when your stupid little friend is directly over my head going BLAT BLAT BLAT BLAT BLAT? I’m shaking my head here. Maybe I am giving an eight year old too much credit here, but simple manners should be directive freakin’ one for parents, as far as I am concerned.
Anyway, so Kale won’t be going to anymore hockey games till next season. And that’s okay. We tried and it was, in my words, a COLOSSAL FAIL. Boo. Oh well. I’m disappointed but that’s okay. He’s only 8 months and there is a whole lot of hockey left in his life.
Also, there is a whole lot of people with bad manners left in his life, too.
We left so fast we didn’t even get a picture.
Kale has a play date today with our friend Bonnie and her mom Shauna so today is a new leaf.
