You're Hopelessly Out Of Touch With Modern Parenting, Mrs Waller....

Diane and Richard Waller, from Leslie Road, Rayleigh, were completely unaware of the controversial policy despite checking details on the farm’s website. Mrs Waller, 61, wanted to take her husband, who is battling prostate cancer, to see the animals on Sunday as a therapeutic activity after a tough week.
She said: “It should be made so you cannot miss it.
“We were completely unaware of the policy until we were told by the staff at the door and we were really hurt - it ruined our day.
“We thought Marsh Farm would be good because you can just interact with the animals and don’t have to speak to anybody.
“There is nowhere else to do that at this time of year. I think if you’re taking your children somewhere as a parent, you keep an eye on them and you are responsible for safeguarding them - there is no need for Marsh Farm to penalise people without children.
“No other attraction has that kind of policy.”
...why, did't you know it takes a village (of suspicious witch-hunters) to raise a child?

You might think those rules are there to stop paedos turning up to molest kids. But you'd be wrong. They're there to stop animal molesters turning up to molest animals.

Now if only I could find a place to wander round safe in the knowledge that all sticky, noisy, anti-social rugrats and their ultra-entitled spawners are prohibited...

"They're there to stop animal molestors from turning up to molest animals."
Does this mean they don't allow Muslims to hover and gaze lovingly at the lambs, sheep, and goats, and making no attempt to hide their stiffy beneath their clothes?

I daren't take a walk in the park on my own since some busy bodies reported me for apparently lurking near children. I wasn't, I wouldn't, and I'd probably attack someone who was. I can understand the restrictions being there to protect unaccompanied adults. It's modern life, love it or hate it, you've got to live it.

GAH!

"Now if only I could find a place to wander round safe in the knowledge that all sticky, noisy, anti-social rugrats and their ultra-entitled spawners are prohibited..."

Oh, seconded!

" It's modern life, love it or hate it, you've got to live it."

It has changed once. It can change again.
