Not Quite Climbing To Mother Of The Year Status

, , , , , | Right | November 10, 2020

I work in a museum. I see a three-year-old child climbing on a display and ask him to come down. The display isn’t designed to be climbed, but more importantly, it’s close to enough to two other displays so that if he fell, he would almost certainly hit his head on the edge or corner of the other tables.

Mother: “God, that’s ridiculous! I don’t understand why they would make a display children can climb and then they’re not allowed to climb it? That’s so stupid.”

Me: “Ma’am, I’m not worried about the display. It’s not designed to be climbed, yes, but he could be seriously hurt if he fell.”

Mother: “So?”
