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 Taser
C2s in stock - Fashion Pink and Red Hot. Not that I would
ever condone or suggest carrying a Taser 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
Yours in safety,
