My sister reminded me of this one from a couple of years ago:
I was visiting my sister who lives about 3 hours away from me and we took a knitting class at a local shop that was advertised as an adult class and "get away from your kids and relax with a coffee, a glass of wine or whatever helps you relax" I got there about 45 minutes early and took a seat next to where the instructor had her place set up, from the earlier class, she was cleaning up the area before starting our "class" I had a cup of coffee that I was drinking and a thermos in my bag, for later.
Another woman came in about 10 minutes later had a glass of something in her hand - and a thermos in her bag. she sat directly opposite me. My sister arrived next and sat next to me and others filled in around . About 5 minutes before the class a woman and her young daughter walked in and announced that the child ( 7-9 in appearance) was going to be part of the class and therefor "there will be no drinking here" , instructor said nothing.
The girl walked up to me and said "You need to move. NOW. This is my seat." I politely refused and the mother told me to move, that her kid needed that seat. I refused again. And the instructor finally piped up with no only was this an adult class, but that it was advertised as an adult get away evening and that I would be staying were I was. She then ASKED the child and her mother to leave. Mother replied that they had been allowed to sign up and therefor they were staying - and that there would be no drinking in front of the kid. Out of the 7 other woman 4 protested this and said they were not refraining. Mother and child took the only two seats left - and mother spent the evening complaining about folks drinking ( no one had more than one glass of wine and then switched to tea or coffee) and the child took over the class - any time the instructor went to help someone the kid got out of her seat, pushed in and said "kids come first, I need help NOW" or some variation on the theme. Several times the instructor told her it was so and so's turn and she needed to wait her turn. and the kid would just shove back in and shove her work in front of the instructor and would repeat this until she got her "help" - mom did nothing all evening to help with her kid.
About 3/4 of the way through the event - the shop owner came in and said "Why is Sadie here, Clementine, I told you I would not register her because this was for adults." At this Clementine said "I paid for two people and I brought her as my second!" Owner repeated that she had told Clementine that Sadie was not welcome, and that Clementine said she was bringing Florence, her older sister. And Clementine repeated "I paid for two people, Florence decided she did not want to come, so I brought Sadie, since I paid for two people."
Owner asked how this had impacted the evening and people told her about not getting help, being told not drink and my sister told her that neither of us had received ANY help with our projects at all and that they had tried to force me to move -even though I was the first one there. Owner walked out and went to her office.
My sister and I gave up and went home, we got a call the next day offering us a repeat of the ecent for free, which we refused since no one did anything substantial to curb Sadie and Clementine -we will not return to this shop,ever.
This store just opened about a month prior to this and I don't hold much hope for it to succeed - they allow the SS behavior and their prices are much too high, I'll be interested to see if it is still there next time I visit.
