Live At the Jailhouse makes 2 assumptions. 1. You know how to handle situations that come up in restaurant entertaining. 2. You are old enough to know what you are doing.

This kid sounds WAY too young. True story. I had performed at this restaurant for Mother's Day and Father's Day for 2 years. I kept dropping by to make it a weekly gig. Well Mother's day was comming up last year and I had not gotten a call, so I called the General Manager and asked him. Well he was new and just said "we don't do that!" and slammed down the phone.

I went to the place the next day and saw a manager that knew the work I do and I asked her why the rudeness. Well, some little son of a ***** come in and did it for free for a couple of weeks. Until he approached a table that had a baby, the mom unbuttoned her blouse, took out her breast and started to feed the baby. He just stared at her breast, they complained to the corporate offices and that ended all entertainment in that restaurant. That cost me US$200 a day in tips plus the restaurant fee.

NEVER think kids can handle what happens in restaurants.


This has actually happened to me as well (the breast feeding not the snaking of the job prior to the breast feeding).

Warning Stereotype coming up:
I live in California and we have a high percentage of hispanics in the population. Breast feeding in public isn't considered rude or unusual to them, so you'll regularly see women walking around breast feeding a kid.

What to do:
Ignore it, ad don't ask her to pick a card.
I tried to make a joke of it once. The woman started feeding her baby and I said, "Oh none for me thanks." She found it in poor taste - her husband thought it was hilarious though.

How profound about the M&Ms! That is a great line though, DBaker. How about sneaking Strap Yourself In Skippy somewhere in there too, eh?

I call hecklers "Skippy".
I can't think of anything more demeaning.

When talking about M&Ms remember this:
They melt in your mouth - NOT in your hand, and one in the hand is worth two in a bush ; but if it melted, it's only worth half - so eat them quick and get a jump on teh ones in the bushes.
