On my last few trips to Vegas I have noticed children everywhere. Last I heard,Vegas was the adult playground. I have gotten yelled at while sitting on the strip people watching. A family came and sat down next to me....I'm talking about a dad with a kid strapped to his chest...a mother with a kid on her back...one in a stroller and one hanging on to the stroller. They exchanged words with each other and then the husband asked me if I wouldn't mind moving away from them...to take my alcohol and cigarettes away from their children!!??? I was like WTF? I was there 1st with friends...there were other places they could sit...and my biggest bitch? It was like 2am!! Why the heck did they have 4 children up at 2 in the morning? I was annoyed and did move away. Another example...Myself and friends were watching the Bellagio fountains...already started...a "family" pushed in behind us and the mother was very rude and said " I have kids here! Can't this be a non-smoking area? Jesus Christ!" Again I was like wtf? I was annoyed...I said I'm smoking outside...you want a smoke free environment go inside the casino away from the slot machines. OR maybe put the kids to bed and come back later.It's a big space...move away. Anyway...I guess I'm wondering why so many parents drag their kids to Vegas and make it everyone else's problem. I see so many families walking the strip with children at 1-2 even 3am. When is it my time to just have fun and not worry about watching out for other peoples children? Yes I have kids...No I don't bring them to Vegas with me. If I want to hang with my kids at a pool all day I can find it cheaper closer to home. And also...these parents think it's ok to bring their kids to an expensive restaurant while they scream and yell...run around the place (so tired all they do is cry)...ruining my experience. I want an upscale,quiet dining experience...But yet I have no right to enjoy that. Why take 5 kids under the age of 10 anywhere but McDonalds? Sorry for such a long rant...but things like this happen to me almost everytime I'm in Vegas. Take you'r kids to bed!
