Buppie Gripe: Children in Hair Salons, Spas, ETC.
I enjoy my time away from children more than usual these days because Monday-Friday from 2-8pm I work with them. I love children. I hope to have quite a few some day. HOWEVER, I am not ready for kids and would appreciate if they were not around messing up my ambiance in particular places i.e. THE HAIR SALON! So I am sitting getting my manicure, pedicure, and wash & set when a little boy comes over to me and starts showing me his stickers. Mind you I had my iPod on and this lil 3 year old appears like a ninja out of nowhere talking to me and crap. I am not a complete ASSHOLE so of course I talk to the baby and entertain him. But all the while I am asking myself where is this child's mother. This is my day of rest! I don't want to be entertaining anyone's child! Finally she rolls up to see where he is and finds that he is quite comfortably talking with me as I sit under the dryer getting my feet scrubbed. She then proceeds to walk away and go somewhere else. I wanted to yell "B*TCH get back here and get ya child!" Like seriously I aint no damn babysitter!
I am very kid friendly it seems. This isn't the first time this has happened to me and it really bothers me. If I am trying to enjoy a nice dining experience, movie, or pamper session at the salon please tend to your children. Preferably find a sitter so I do not even have to hear your child's voice in an adult place! Like it is seriously out of control! I feel like Samantha did in that one episode of Sex & the City when she was PISSED because every where she went people had their wining child. Last year I went to a movie with the District's Buppie and a woman had 3 children under the age of 5 in the theater. (Mind you this was not a children's movie!) Years from now when I am a mother I am going to remember this feeling and be considerate of where I decide to take my children.
Is this unreasonable bups???
