Questacon + school holidays = hell

By MWF 22 April 2009 46

Look, I knew Questacon during school holidays would be crowded and hot. Have BTDT. What I had forgotten about were the feral children. The kids that run around all the exhibits without a parent in sight. The 3 and 4 year olds who come and slap the buttons on the exhibit thing my family and I were using and thinking about.

Why are 3 and 4 year olds running about unsupervised in the first place?  Where were the parents of the little snot that came and actually climbed onto the exhibit my9 year old was reading about and using and then slapped all the buttons and wrecked the entire experiment? Ultimately I said to my 9 year old: Let’s give up because this little snot is never going to give up.

Oh and groups of unsupervised 8-10 year old snots running like  a herd of elephants through the rooms and up and down the ramps. I wanted to have a 3 year old tantrum myself.

Never have I been at Questacon and heard an announcement reminding the children not to run. Heard it 3 times today.

Thank God that school holiday experience has been and gone. At least the kids don’t want to go swimming – all the bloody pools are closed I hear.

What’s Your opinion?

No, Woody – I mean something original, based on a thought which you yourself have developed without relying on the input of others. Never mind, dear. Back to sleep.

Meeeeeeeeeooooooooowwwwwww!

@weeziepops – you mean like how you’ve turned your mind to something other than going on and on and on about me? I’ve told my fans before that their stalking is flattering, but really, you need to get yourself a f.cking life already.

It’s amazing what parents do. When Mrs Berlina was a teen working at McDonalds it was apparently ‘normal’ for parents to drop kids at the Maccas playground and go do shopping.

Bugger me.

#38 – Woody, perhaps you could then turn your mind to posting something original rather than focusing on the work (and, as you so rightly point out, its many deficiencies) of others. My last post may have left you reeling but surely a person of your amazing analytical skills can say something which goes beyond judging the input of others??

We (3 boys under the age of 9) got left in the car with a book, a travel board game or something to keep us amused….

Now thats illegal apparently.
