I walked to a bar to do some data entry for work while drinking (my boss knows and supports me lol).
On my way inside, there were a few adults arguing with a few children.
The adults were at the bar, outside, smoking in the smoking section. This section is surrounded by a fence.
On the other side, sitting on a curb, were some kids hanging out and smoking cigarettes. The youngest looked about 8 or 9 and the oldest looked 12 or 13.
The adults started harassing the kids and the conversation went something like this —
Adults: What are you doing!? You’re too young to smoke!
Adults: Don’t you know how bad it is for you!?
8-yr old: (after lighting a cig, obviously experienced) You’re smoking? Soooo.
Adults: But WE. are. adults!
Adults: We’re old enough.
Adults: Well you shouldn’t be smoking.
Kids: Well at least we aren’t losers hanging out in a bar on a Monday.
One adult: I’m with my friends!
One kid: ...your loser friends.
Second adult: We’re not losers!!
Same kid: You guys suck.
The other kids: So.
Second adult: You shouldn’t be smoking.
Street person: LEAVE THE KIDS ALONE!
Adults: ask trivia guy to repeat the last three questions because they were “dealing with a thing.”
Seems like the kids just needed an advocate.
Listening to: trivia (theme: Presidential Pullout)
