Re: Fear Factor at the local Chuck E. Cheese

I work at Chuck. E Cheese. I've done kid-check, and I don't think you have any right to complain.
A. As people have mentioned, you are harboring a litany of ill feeling towards your local Chuck E. Cheese. It sounds like a laundry list of your bitching.
Seriously, with your attitude, I wouldn't have smiled at you either. We're employees, but we're human beings. And, I'm not sure if you all realize, CEC is REALLY busy, sometimes we are too busy to offer idle smiles and listen to your crap.
B. The stamps are individual. There are numbers, and we stamp every member of the same family with the same number. I've had people come up to me and tell me how much they like our system. I think it works as well.
And honestly, YOU DIDN'T READ THE RULES.
CEC requires that CHILDREN HAVE PARENTAL SUPERVISION AT ALL TIMES. So, you know, KIDS ARE ALLOWED IN BATHROOMS. Ever heard of "Hey, kids, mommy needs to use the bathroom, come with me"??
I've seen MANY mothers take their kids into the bathroom just to supervise them. I'd say they're GOOD mothers for being responsible.
And you know what, we are paid minimum wage. Our responsibility isn't to watch your kids for you, YOU got pregnant, YOU are responsible.
And, lastly, if your husband explained himself at kid check, the person there would have let him out! At training, they tell us that if a kid tries to leave with a parent who doesn't have a number, we ask the child if he/she knows the adult, and what relation they have to each other. Obviously, if your little Tommy or Susie says "Yes, I love Daddy", who are we to hold the child+parent hostage at CEC??
