I believe that is limited to one topic: It's not ok to bring your snake into a restaurant.

What if my snake is really well behaved and precious?  What about all those people who think I'm funny and unique for bringing my snake to a restaurant?  What national news headline about a waitress being bitten by a diner's snake?

Is it okay if the snake is in its snakeskin cozy and carried in a Delicious brand purse?

What if it is a therapy snake? No one can get near me without being bitten. That reduces my anxiety levels and makes me feel safe! ;) ;D

If the other diners want to feel safe, let them get their own snake.

What if I want my snake sauteed in garlic and served in a wine sauce?

Isn't it rude to bring you own food into the restaurant? :P

Really?  I have to pay for a snake sitter?

What if it's a snake-friendly restaurant?  It's the perfect opportunity for me to teach my snake how to eat politely and not bite (at least, not let the fang marks show!)

>:D

Fortunately we don't have snakes in Hawaii, so I won't worry about restaurant snake etiquette >:D

They might have some creatures in Hawaii that are as bad as snakes or worse...

(Of course, I'd still welcome a chance to visit our Midnight Kitty.)

Discussion about Child Free anything really.

It usually becomes a debate with parents on one side and Child-Free on the other. It never ends well.

Work Lunch Theives. Someone ALWAYS suggests putting laxative in a food item to catch the "theif" and someone else always points out that they (the OP) could get charged with Assult.

I was taking my snake to a restaurant when I stopped by a friend's house to pick up a stocking cap that she had been knitting for me, but it smelled of smoke, (because her domestic SO smokes) and so I threw it at her when she got mad at me for not taking off my shoes upon entering her house and she also took offense because I had my sister's child with me so that she could be child-free for the afternoon and I am childless so I had to use her extra big stroller because her child is extra big, but that's because he doesn't eat a vegetarian diet and she wouldn't breastfeed him.  Her door was too small for the stroller!  Imagine!
 
Anyway, I told her to forget it and that I would now for sure never share any of my great recipes and that she had made me late and I would now have to catch a bus on which I needed to change the babies diaper.  I don't know if anyone said anything, because I had my iPod turned up all the way.
 
We got off at our stop and at the restaurant, since the waitress spilled a drink on my snake and made snarky comments about him being a snake and all, I only left her a 10 cent tip.
 
But, now I have enough money for when my snake and I attend my other sisters wedding next week.
 
I'm a bridesmaid.  I sure hope she doesn't go all Bridezilla and expect that I won't wear my snake down the aisle!
 >:D

And here we have a fine example of the Personzilla. ;) Rudeness for every occasion, and undiscriminating hatred for all.

Except the snake, of course. ;D
