Whack-a-Mom at Chuck E. Cheese
You don’t often expect to hear about a fight breaking out at a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant unless you are a plastic mole getting the snot beat out of you with a foam hammer in Whack-a-Mole. This time however, it looks like a grownup Whack-a-Mom game materialized in the Natick, MA pizza family fun place.
Apparently, the mother of a 9-year-old boy celebrating his birthday party had a case of arcade rage when another child was hogging the game her son wanted to play. No, this wasn’t 2 adolescent girls having a slapping and hair pulling match in the hallway of a high school. It was two mothers, a 38 and a 33-year-old, setting a wonderful example for their own kids, as well as all the other children present at Chuck E. Cheese.
As ridiculous as this story may seem, it goes to show that anything can happen at any time, for any reason. You never know when something as innocent as playing the same video game too many times may send some impatient, chemically imbalanced person into a fit of rage if they have to wait too long.
Both moms have been summoned to court to answer charges of simple assault and battery. I haven’t heard the full details, but I hope it turns out to be a case of self-defense for the one mom who gets off, and at least a nice fine for the belligerent mom starting the brawl.
As a side note, we just got some of the new colored C2 TASERS in stock – Fashion Pink and Red Hot. Not that I would ever condone or suggest carrying a TASER Device into Chuck E. Cheese. Perhaps in the parking lot.
It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?
Be Safe, Be Prepared.
