KTBS has the story of a local parent who wanted police to charge a Japanese restaurant with sexual abuse because his 7 year old daughter was squirted with water. They have been squirting customers for 11 years without a problem.
The restaurant has a little anatomically INcorrect doll that squirts water. The family is claiming trauma.
Sexual abuse, really?
Police said they might consider charges of simple battery, although they seem to have a better case against the father, who called a restaurant employee the f-word and cursed them.
Please people, lighten up.
How can they charge the father for using the F word when it seems that most people think it is ok for a coach to use in front of their kids?ReplyDelete
They're not. I just noted that they had more of a case against him than against the squirter.ReplyDelete
Saw this story on TV last night. Most stupid thing I've ever heard in my life. I hope this family does not visit Italy. The life sized statues/fountains would surely send them over the edge.ReplyDelete
They should charge the Dad. What a raging idiot.ReplyDelete
HA! That reminds me of something (everything does). My beloved Granddaddy took a trip back up to his hometown in North Carolina when I was probably 6 or 7 years old.ReplyDelete
En route back home, he stopped somewhere and picked up this tourist item. It was an outhouse that was probably about 8 inches high. It had a door on it, and when you opened the door, a hillbilly with his overalls around his ankles swung around, and squirted water out of his private part.
All us kids laughed like crazy, and kept begging him to fill it back up again. I swear...we must have stayed awake all weekend giggling, and squirting (my Big Sis figured out how to fill it up, so we could keep playing with it while Granddaddy was asleep).
And, the hillbilly had a real "thing" sticking out, too!
Honestly, I don't think I've ever seen anyone as bad at faking outrage than this guy. I know that big time news coverage like KTBS can make somebody nervous, but he comes off as faking outrage, and like he's hoping for some gas money.
BTW...What 7 year old picks a Jap Hibachi Restaurant for her birthday celebration? I'm not saying the little girl didn't. But, when my kids were that age, it was McDonalds, or Chuck-E-Cheese. Doesn't pass the sniff test...
I remember as a little boy going in Sammy's grocery on E. Texas St. across from First Baptist Church. Sammy had a few of those. Seems like one was of a nude girl, and he had the hillbilly too. Me and brother loved opening the door and getting "peed" on as my dad and other grown ups looked on and laughed.ReplyDelete
What an uptight society we have become.
That restaurant sounds like fun. I think I'll add it to my list of restaurants to go to.
As far as the ridiculous, uptight dad, my goodness, I wish my biggest problem was as small as his.
Anon at 7:00 pm. You went to Sammy's? Jeepers...my beloved wife grew up just around the corner from Sammy's, and when she had a few pieces of change, her Mom would let her go down there and get some penny candy.ReplyDelete
Of course, he had all them bad girlie magazines behind the counter...and I guess most of us remember how Sammy expired...
Regardless, he was always kind to the children.
Yes I remember the magazines and how Sammy died.
It was very sad.
Sammy was a great guy. He was one of few adults that was fun to be around for a young kid. Always laughing and kidding around. I miss him. Him and my dad were close friends, and I spent a lot of time with him.
The dad really needs a vasectomy. He has not demonstrated adequate maturity and common sense to father children.ReplyDelete
Ya know, I don't think I would like to be squirted in the face with water now and wouldn't think it funny, but I probably would have thought it hilarious when I was 7.ReplyDelete
But to consider it sexual takes something more than a "normal" imagination where the father's concerned.
I'm sorta worried about the little girl now.
