Feed The Kid!

November 26th, 2017 Leave a comment Go to comments

Recently, my X-wife, my daughter and I took a road trip from San Diego to Las Vegas. It’s almost a 5 hour drive so lots of time to listen to music, chat and gaze at the scenery, especially those desert infused Nevada mountains.

When we got there, Sin City was it’s usual self; gaudy, affluent and bustling (even during the off season).

We checked into our hotel, got our room and made a break for the pool (the only place to be).

On the second day my X-wife made dinner reservations at Lago in the Bellagio – an upscale little place with a view of the spraying fountains. Long story short, we sat at our table, made some chit chat and placed our dinner order. In the middle of the order, we got our daughter this petite margarita pizza off the menu. A bit abruptly, the waiter replied “Right, feed the kid!”

Is it just me or does that comment seem a tad inappropriate? Like feeding the kid is unimportant, overrated and the money would be better spent gambling in their pristine rug laden casino (I.e. – the blackjack table). Side note, they’d be better off offering Spanish 21 tables in replacement of the traditional blackjack.

Anyway, just thought I’d share what some of the Vegas waiters are uttering in their establishments. And yes, I think we should feed the kid! She’s hungry for god sake’s! At least most of the time…

It’d be great to hear from you,
