1. Several weeks ago we were at The Hotel del Coronado. While eating at the indoor and outdoor restaurant a family of four sat next to us. Within seconds the two little boys - call them 7 and 10yo - were running around and yelling. They sat down for a bit ordered their food and then the older boy called the younger boy a "fool" and the little boy began shrieking as if someone had laid a hot branding iron across his chest. The parents simply tuned it all out. My wife, kids and I decided to grab our food and commander another table down the way. The offending dad looked at me and said, "what can't stand for two little boys to have a little fun?". I was a nanteenth of second from unleashing a spluttering of f-bombs and such but a an older lady a table over jumped in an told the dad and mom they were embarrassments and they'd be lucky if both kids didn't end up in jail! etc. Just then the mgr. showed up and kicked the loud family out with zero hesitation. We got a 1/2 priced meal out of it. 2. Last night at a trendy restaurant in The Bishop Arts District in south Dallas we were enjoying a meal with a table of eight. One of the kids across the table said she saw a "weird light" that sort-of hurt her eyes. I'm thinking WTF there's no welding going on. A couple seconds later I felt/saw laser light flash across my eyes and almost immediately saw the twerp with the laser. I got up walked over to the table and told the kid to put the laser on the table - he was maybe 16. He said I don't know what you are talking about at the same time his mom (?) said who are you please get away from our table at the same time the dad (?) said what are you talking about? I told the kid to put the laser on the table or I was going to call the cops as I pulled out my cell. He put the laser on the table - mom said, "oh that - that's just a toy". I said that's not a toy that's a tool that can hurt people. I was simply going to break the laser and throw it in the trash while the kid watched. Again a manager to the rescue - the manager shows up asking me to sit down and that he will bring me a fresh drink. I sat down to eat/wait for my free cocktail etc. At first my wife was upset with me but when she found out that the twerp kid had lazed our table she was pissed too. About 20 minutes later a DPD officer showed up and after asking me to hang around for a few minutes took the kid with family in tow outside. Several minutes later he told me it was a busy night and this was a low level issue but would I fill out a statement Monday/Tuesday - I said yes. I don't know what happened to the kid after that. Our waiter said they were pretty sure that kid had lazed customers a few times in the past. They were going to try to prove that up with credit card time stamps vs. time and dates of complaints. How in the heck did the parents not know something was going on? I'm convinced the mom was 90% clueless and the dad 100%.
