So I was in the bathroom of an Applebee’s restaurant. I’m on my way to wash my hands when a man and two children walk in.
The man is about 45ish the kids are about 7 and 4.
The 4-year-old walks over to an empty urinal and picks up the blue piss soap and sticks it in his mouth. You know, the ones made of chemicals and covered in pubic hair (see below). O.o
I froze up (for lack of a better word) and just looked at the dad and made a strange noise (not sure what) while pointing at the kid.
The dad gives me this nonchalant look and says, “You know how kids are.” He then walks over to the kid (in no rush whatsoever) and pulls out the hockey puck, tosses it back in the urinal and takes his time to get a towel and wipe the kids face off.
I’m standing there thinking that the kid should be rushed to a hospital and then given some secret drug kept in reserve for just this occasion, but all the parent does is wipe off the kid’s face and tell him to do better
At the very least panic a bit and rinse the kid’s mouth out for the next hour or so.
Is it me overreacting or was that a bad parent?
