On Sunday it rained all day — which is really becoming a straight pain in the ass here in North Carolina. We planned to hang out with two of our young nieces, so we let them decide what we were going to do since our original outside plan was foiled. Their decision? Dave & Busters. Why? Last time they were there they saw a fake poop in the arcade that they couldn’t live without winning. Now, originally I was all for this and I thought playing a bunch of games would be pretty fun… even if the endgame was a piece of plastic crap.
Wrong. Wrong on all accounts.
Our Dave & Busters is in our mall. I didn’t take into account it would be full of parents that want to shop on weekends but not deal with their kids. So, of course the easy answer was to let the arcade babysit them. There were dozens of them. Everywhere. 50 unsupervised preteens? Hell… it’s hell, I tell you. I have a new found respect for teachers. Bless your poor, patient souls.
Even worse, it cost $65 to earn enough tickets for the poop.
I’m not sure who’s worse. The parents who let their rude, loud kids ruin an expensive arcade? Or me, for spending $65 on a fake piece of shit I could buy for $5 at a store?
It’s me. The answer is me.

I am DONE with the rain in NC. My husband and I are building a haunted attraction in Johnston county right off I-95 and we’ve been flooded numerous times. Our 1/4 mile trail turned into a 1/4 mile river, and we had to raise the trail about a foot and a half so it wasn’t the lowest point on the property anymore, one shovel-full at a time. I hate rain. Hate it with a passion.
Did you do all that shoveling just for Halloween? That’s some dedication, lol. Good luck with your Halloween attraction.
Oh my word. Mass numbers of unsupervised preteens? Horror. Bless you for sticking it out and then sharing it with us so we could all laugh, erm… *with* you.
