Today's watercooler discussion

22 posts in this topic

there was a report the other day of an Asian airline that has implemented a child free section on their flights. For $11 extra, you can sit in an 8 row section where there are no children under 12 allowed.

so that opened the discussion around planes and then restaurants etc.

What do you think of kid free zones and why?

Some rests already do that. I think that those who have kids want this more than those that don't.

Hey honey isn't it great to finally have some time alone. Just you and me and the entire 8 yr old little league who have glueten allergies and are seeing who can scream the loudest?

So. Yes.

Great idea... but if it's only 8 rows on an airplane, that really just means you won't sit right beside them... you'll still hear them.

In other places I have no problem with "kid free" zones or times.

When my kids were really little and prone to crying/making a nuisance, we either went to kid friendly places or just didn't go out.

I see kids at late movies, nice restaurants and other places where etiquette would dictate that they not be... people are just rude in general.

that's I guess why I think it's a silly idea though....there's lots and lots of other people that annoy the hell out of me more than kids!!!

I would pay to sit in the part of the plane that doesn't allow stinky, yappy, got to have the light on all night long on the red eye, squirmy, space hogging fat bastards people too!!!

then there's them asshats that don't realize that their cellphone is way different than a can on a string and you don't have to yell into it constantly too! the list goes on

I totally get what you're saying....BUT...you can't tell the kid "Godamnit kid! sit the fug down and shut the hell up!"....

You can however, say it to an adult :)

I have the right to sit my kid whereever I want.

YOU can just deal with it.

Kids are kids man.

Just suck it up and let read your hippy books or some poo.

People telling where kids can and can't be GTFO

Kurb..I'm gonna go ahead and guess that you're going to be the type of parent that makes sure your little boy doesn't act a fool up in a public place either...

back when my sister and I were little..if we acted up...we left..end of discussion...

too bad it's not like that anymore

people without kids: "Get those loud whiny, snot nosed brats out of here".

people with kids: "Noooo I need to be around independent adults!"

    • We don't need Fournette to do the latter. He'd just fit it perfectly and could be a generational talent. There are other backs in this draft who could fit into a power run game built to utilize the play action and open up the intermediate and deep routes for Cam's big arm. We definitely should be adding some more short passing game into our offense, but not as a foundation of our offense. It should come from the slot position which hopefully is filled by the addition of Shepard or by a draft pick, ideally not a top 10 pick in McC or even at 40 though. If we want our offense to incorporate the short passing game as a feature then Cam needs to improve quite a bit there.
    • I think he lost weight will help get his speed back. He did look slowed last year. But he also had ankle problems and was beat up.  We need a traditional running game that can operate without Cam's own ability to run. Fournette and Stew would beat the piss out of a defense.  Receivers need to step up as does our OC.  Cam made some bad reads and held onto the ball a lot last year. But he knows how to ball.
