October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

Category: Family & Kids

We Will We Will Praise You

| Ohio, USA | Family & Kids, Religion

(I volunteer at a daycare. The daycare is very Christian, so we have a Christian radio station playing at all time. A song the teacher likes comes on. Note that it is a very slow “Praise the Lord and His angels”-type song.)

Teacher: “I like this song!”

Little girl #1: “Me too! Mommy has it on all the time!”

Teacher: “What about you, [Little girl #2]? Do you know this song?”

Little Girl #2: “No, but I know ‘We Will Rock You.'”

Teacher: “Um—”

Me: “Close enough.”

Future Budget Oversight Leaders Of America

| USA | Family & Kids

(I overhear a little boy around five years old asking his mother for lots of expensive toys.)

Mother: “We can’t afford six. Just pick one and put the rest back.”

Boy: “Just tell daddy to stop drinking beer this month!”

Size Matters, Part 7

| Chicago, IL, USA | Family & Kids

Small child: “Mommy! I just saw a fish that was as big as Aunt Karen!”

Dodging The Point

| Massachusetts, USA | Family & Kids

(I’m refereeing a dodgeball game at a widely known indoor trampoline park. I am currently watching over a little kids game. The mother of a crying child approaches me.)

Mother: “Excuse me, but why is my son out?! Is he not allowed to play or something?”

Me: “Ma’am, your son was hit with the ball.”

Mother: “What do you mean?! That other kid clearly targeted my son!”

Me: “I’m sure he did…this is dodgeball.”

Mother: “I don’t get it.”

Me: “You have to dodge balls. If you are hit with a ball in dodgeball, you are out.”

Mother: “This is just stupid!” *leaves with her crying child*

Mommy More Melee

| Aberdeen, Scotland, UK | Family & Kids

(A female customer who looks to be in her late thirties is at the counter asking about upcoming games releases for her 10-12 year old son, who is looking through the games on display. He runs up to the counter.)

Child: “Mummy, mummy, can I have this game?”

(He hands the 18+ rated game “Dead Island” to his mom, who looks at the back of the box.)

Woman: *disgusted* “You’re not having this! Look, it’s got a man hitting a zombie with an axe on the back! I’ve got no problem with you shooting people, but an axe?!”
