We have always enjoyed take our very lively nine year old grandsons out for a meal occasionally when they alway behave well. Last night, however, was a total revelation. We went to our local Pizza Express and as we went in the door we were hit by an ear-splitting barrage of noise. We literally could not think straight or hear each other and even our grandsons were gobsmacked for lack of a better word.
Children were wailing, screaming and running around all over the place even knocking things off tables and they all seemed to be with their parents and we were the only grandparents there. And these little brats were being patted on the head and praised by their parents. No sign of admonishment.
To cap it all, the cost of two child size starters and main courses plus cokes and two adult main courses came to a whopping £100! That was partly because we were silly enough to order a couple of glasses of wine which cost £7 each. Now I know why people drink at home before they go out and the reason we didn't have puddings was because the boys wanted to leave.
