Are Huge Baby Strollers Really Necessary?
And in more entitled parenting news, a dad is mad because his family was asked to leave a restaurant after he wouldn't put his 16-month old kid in a high chair and instead wanted the restaurant to accommodate his big stroller at the table. He is planning on staging a 50 stroller protest.
Yeah, that makes sense.
Why are strollers so big these days anyway? I see people pushing wing chairs on wheels. And twins? Here comes a sofa!
And why are people pushing around kids that can walk? I see five and six year olds (and obviously I'm not talking about a child with a disability) jammed into strollers, drinking a beverage and playing on an iTouch like their on a first-class flight to Bora Bora.
I have twins. When I went stroller shopping I was looking at a basic model and the store salesman comes over and tried to persuade me to buy this gigantic, expensive one. “This one’s a much better investment," he said. I asked why. He said, “That one’s only got a weight capacity of 50 pounds per child. This one is 77 pounds per child.”
77 pounds per child? What, am I pushing them to seventh grade?
I said, “By the time they're 77 pounds they better have jobs.” 77 pounds?! Times two that’s 154lbs of kid! Get your junior high a$$ up and start walking!
Strollers are getting out of control. And with the childhood obesity problem we have in the country, maybe it's time kids started walking.
Oh, and in case you were wondering. That dad who got kicked out of the restaurant? He's considering legal action.
Of course he is.
