I was doing my supermarket shopping today and saw this woman in the ASDA café when I was having my coffee, her son was eating the most massive plate of fish and chips that I have ever seen.
Honestly, does she want him to end up obese or something?!

Yeah, one plate of fish & chips makes you obese... hmm

<sigh>

Really?

HeySoulSister Wed 03-Apr-13 16:30:34

do you know what caffeine does to you op??

My son would eat a huge plate of fish and chips. Then a cream cake for dessert, he has cf and need the calories, that kid in Asda might do too, don't be judgemental unless you know the circs. hmm

OMG it wasn't the Asda in Worcester was it dizzy?

Feminine Wed 03-Apr-13 16:31:11

No...really?

This is awful.

did she pinch a few chips?

An ASDA cafe that serves a massive plate of fish and chips?

Not likely.

biscuit ooh it's been a long time since I gave one of those out!

Got sweet FA to do with you, could be a million reasons why, maybe the portion size took them by surprise, maybe he was just hungry hmm

I hope this is meant as some sort of joke thread!

On the basis of someone you don't know doing something you have no idea is a regular occurrence you are making this assumption?

Have my first biscuit.

StuffezLaBouche Wed 03-Apr-13 16:32:04

Siiiigh.

FrustratedSycamoresRocks Wed 03-Apr-13 16:32:23

At least he was being fed OP.

wimblehorse Wed 03-Apr-13 16:32:27

Was the boy under 6 months? <fails to see the problem>

I think we need to know whether the son was in a high chair and BLW, or 19 and in muddy rugby kit.

CutePuppy Wed 03-Apr-13 16:33:36

hmm

jeee Wed 03-Apr-13 16:33:47

It wouldn't have happened at Waitrose. HTH.

And now I want fish and chips.

That is the only unreasonable thing about what you posted.

grin

You're going to get beaten by those who haven't read the other thread, though.

Maybe the child wanted fish rather than burgers, sausages or nuggets that usually make up the childrens' meals. Just because there was a large plateful it doesn't mean the child will eat it all. FWIW I often buy dd an adult sized meal because she prefers the choices offered she eats as much as she wants and leaves the rest. No big deal in my book.

LilaFowler Wed 03-Apr-13 16:34:34

confused

YouTheCat Wed 03-Apr-13 16:34:52

Oh bloody hell, what other thread?

I too want fish and chips.

My DC had two Subway cheese toasties for late breakfast then a Starbuck hot chocolate.

Are they being unreasonable because they told me I couldn't have a VegeDelite?

(I think so) hmm

Sparklingbrook Wed 03-Apr-13 16:35:33

Ok. Enough. It was me. DS1 is 13.

Did you sit there, looking all disgusted as you sipped your skinny latte OP?
