Table for 4?

Okay......here's my latest observation.

Getting your kids their own table in a restaurant.

Is this the newest yuppie thing?

If it is it drives me crazy (as do most things that yuppie soccer moms do).

I have noticed that if a yuppie couple come in with their two blond haired perfect children, instead of getting a table for 4 like you would expect, mom and dad sit at one table and THEY GET A SEPARATE TABLE for the kids. (and I'm talking 5 and 6 and 7 year olds). Little kids.

I have seen it over and over and over again (I eat out a lot).

And I've seen it in nice restaurants as well as fast food places.

What is up with this?

Any help here?

(Yuppies drive me crazy and self-centered uber-parenting soccer moms are the worst offenders.)

yuppie freaks aggravate the hell out of me - a guy with whom I went to school, and his wife, just bought a Hummer. I nearly puked.

The "kids at separate tables" phenomenon is a new one on me. It's bad enough people don't eat dinner together at home anymore, you'd think going out to eat would count as "special family time."

One more tear in the fabric of society....
