54% of you have no pity for the uncaring parent of a toddler who is having a public meltdown. Which, let’s admit, is pretty much going to happen at least once if your toddler ever leaves the house. 36% can totally walk a mile in the suffering parent’s shoes, 6% try to ignore it, and 3% say shut up already. I recently thought about how I react, and usually I’m pretty sympathetic. Probably moreso now that I’ve got one of my own right now that is quite a few notches up on the “difficult” scale.
But, let’s talk about Halloween! To me, it is always a big bummer when Halloween falls on a school night. Not that it’s a big deal for us this year, but for many other people, it puts a bit of a kibosh on the festivities. It seems at least one lawmaker agrees with me, and earlier this year introduced a bill (in his state, that is) to have Halloween celebrated on the last Saturday in October, no matter the date.
