To think this mother and father should be disgusted with themselves?

I've been out to dd's first show tonight and I am so very very proud of her, but, one thing has marred it.
A young couple (who's daughter was dancing) brought their son with them, I would say he was no older than 5.
As soon as they took their seats he laid down and went to sleep, next thing, he was projectile vomiting over the seats at the back of him and the floor, his mum cleaned him up and he was sat with his eyes rolling into the back of his head, face bright red and sweat dripping down his face. His father sat and did nothing, then, they gave him 2 bottles of cola. When someone mentioned he should be at home she stated very loudly "we've paid for the tickets and we are staying'.
He fell asleep again (very very fifully) and once again threw up for the second time over a poor elderly lady sat at the back of him and then soiled himself, only at this point (10 minutes from the end) was he taken out.
NOT ONCE did his mother apologise, though her dad did say 'sorry, he has been like this since last night' WTF? I am sooooooooooo pissed off, a very special night was marred by the fact we had to sit with a sickly smell lingering all night
I sincerely hope she is not going to be there tomorrow night with the poor little mite, otherwise I may have to say something.

I must admit that I felt sick all the way through, you could tell he was ill, it had that horrible acidic smell.
I had heard that tepid flat coke is excellent, but, this was ice cold from the bar.
I didn't want to start anything as it was a special night.
HairyIrene, dd1 has been doing ballet/tap/jazz/modern dance for the past 3 years and it was their showcase. And, though I may be biased, she was BLOODY FANTASTIC

Selfish scum - one of them should have stayed at home with him I mean FFS I have missed many many occasions I would have loved to have gone to but couldn't coz one of my 3 was sick.
A classic example of people who think that their needs and comfort come before everyone elses's, including their son.
Cola best thing though.

Oh the poor little thing! How embarrassing for him to mess himself in front of all those people
What a selfish pair of twats!
Cola is very good for sickness, actually, but he should have been at home.
Mind you if they were selfish enough to disregard his needs in the theatre they were probably selfish enough to disregard his needs at home too.

Flat fizzy drinks are good, NOT cold and full of fizz.
Anyway they don't sound like the kind of parents that would give a shit have a clue about that sort of anti sickness remedy.
I bet they gave him cola 'cos they are pig ignorant.
Anyway cola has far too much sugar in for any child. It should be banned, Vile stuff.
For sickness flat lemonade is better.

I dont think they should be disgusted with themselves.
They may have been trying to make the best of a very bad situation.
Or they may not have.
And perhaps they were too distracted by their ill son and performing child to apologise.
who knows........Cant say that i've got it right 100% of the time.
