Scooter in Club Lounge

Ok, now I have seen it all. Here in LeMeridien Chiang Mai tonight, a child in the club lounge with playing with his scooter. This photo was taken @7:30 pm during the cocktail reception. When did the lounge become a play pen? I do not have a problem with parents with children in the lounge. But it is a different story, when a someone is riding a scooter in a crowded lounge.

I was never given razor blades as toys when I was a child.

Here we go again. Let me sum it up. Everyone on FT has a perfect child/children and the real problem is with adults who drink too much and talk on their cell phones.

We can close this thread now.

As they say, a pic is worth 1,000 words. To those who have never seen unruly children in a lounge-like environment. Here it is in living color.

Not too far from the truth. I'm bothered a lot more by the jackass who is Facetiming at full volume without headphones (this seems to be a more and more frequent occurrence). At least the kid on the scooter is entertaining.

Let me be equally snarky. All of us FT are perfect adults and children is the root cause for all lounge issues. Let's just ban the children in all the lounges and all Marriott lounges will turn into Garden of Eden.

Case closed.

If I start a thread every time an adult misbehaves, the FT will be flooded. But, let's just pretend only kids are rude and abusive and inconsiderate.

Bring it on. Here's some behavior I witnessed just in the past week:

* A pair of women standing in front of the evening buffet and eating directly from it whilst others waited. The width of these two individuals occluded nearly the entire buffet (why is that no surprise?)
* Couple Facetiming loudly with their daughter for 30 minutes
* Guy exiting the lounge with an armload of food (which I daresay he wasn't desperately in need of)
* Guy who decides he needs to listen to a CNN impeachment update on his phone (no headphones, full volume)

Hmm. I can't recall a single incident involving a child.

My two "favorites" involving children were, first, the Shangri-la Wuhan where I entered the lounge for breakfast just in time to witness two siblings having a food fight utilizing the food right off the buffet. Parents were oblivious and the staff were feckless.

Second favorite was the Grand Hyatt Taipei during the evening service where the kids (at least 10 of them) became so unruly that I asked the lounge manager if there wasn't a quiet place I could go to enjoy my drink and snacks. She told me to try the coffee shop or the bar downstairs. Confused, I asked but wouldn't that require me to pay? She smiled and said "yes". That was the last time I ever set foot in their lounge (and the hotel itself).

Whataboutism is alive and well when discussing child behavior in lounges.

Was the child/parent breaking some rule in particular, or do you just object to the fact that lounges (even higher end ones) are not adults-only spaces?

If it's the latter, and it was my child whose face you were posting on an internet forum as the target of your grievance, I would not be happy. I might even argue that it's worse than whatever infraction you perceived.
