Everything is NOT fair game when changing your baby!

To Everyone -

PLEASE do not take Ang's self-involved, self-important postings re: the minutiae of her daily life as a reflection of everyone in her profession. Her comments are almost always lengthy detailed commentaries about her day to day life in Chicago, and rarely, if ever, about travel - at least outside of this city.

This thread cracks me up. I am sure there are many harried, stressed moms out there who will be offended but I have to agree that BABIES have no place in nicer restaurants, regardless of the diaper issue. There are plenty of family friendly eateries out there. Yes I understand that the food maybe mediocre, but hey you decided to have a baby. Agree too that if you can afford a meal at an upscale restaurant then you can afford a sitter. There used to be a restaurant in St. Louis that had printed on their menus “we prefer not to serve children under 12”. If you were silly enough to still eat there you were seated in the basement!

Now the stroller issue. I am GLAD they are out getting some exercise, what with all the fat ppl on airline threads, seems like a good idea to be walking off those extra maternity pounds.

My favorite part about men who spit in public is THAT NOISE that precedes the spitting -- What is that?!?

Yes, baby strollers are annoying...and so too are those pesky people in wheelchairs -- they take up so much space on the sidewalks and go so slowly when I am in a hurry. Why don't they just stay home and hire someone to go out and do their shopping??

Ang -

The other poster is right -no one in their right mind gives a rat's rear about our schlepping back and forth to the Daley Center or to deps. Just stop - you sound awful.

Why are all these lawyers in Chicago on the fodors travel board clicking on a thread about diaper changing?

Look at the way these snotball Chicago lawyers rip each other on this board. Whatsa matter, did Ang steal your latest slip-on-a-banana peel injury case from you? Or did she just slap your sweaty hand away when you tried to grope her in the office elevator?

So glad I don't live anywhere near Chicago to need the sub-standard legal services of this crowd.

First, it's clear you child-haters out there are just unhappy about your lot in life. Try IVF or adoption or something. We were all in diapers once.

Second, to the lady who changed her kid on the McDonald's table--that's the least of our problems in those stanky joints.

It's been a while since that happened. But McD's seems to have gotten with the program and now provides changing facilities for their little customers (for the most part). (Actually I try to avoid their cardboard burgers whenever possible. Now that my children are older, if they are hungry, McD's is the last place they want to go!)

To waaah! - Yes, we were all in diapers once, but I'll bet none of us were changed on an unoccupied craps table in Las Vegas.

waah, there is a big difference between people who do not like children and people who do not like diapers. I have really never heard any parent, no matter how much they love their child, say that they love their child's diapers or the smell of the diapers (maybe some do, but I have not met them).

While you accuse parents of all these, let me just remind you that there are still parents like me who have stopped going to nice restaurants since I had my baby two years ago because I know I wouldn't be able to eat anyway, who now goes to family friendly restaurants and if my baby throws a tantrum, I take her out and would only come back in after she's settled down, and who would only change a dirty diaper in the bathroom or in my car. Yes, there are a lot of things that I couln't do now that I used to be able to do before but that's part of being a parent. Not all of us wants to incovenience others.

I am not really of fan of women changing diapers on a McDonald table or any restaurant table - other people will be using them during the day. It's like when women use the restroom, they pee all over the seat and leave it on the lid. By the way, many people w/o canes or strollers walk 3 in a row on sidewalks and you can't get by them either. Lack of manners seems to be a societal thing, not whether you have children or not.
