To think it's actually insane to take your children to Buckingham Palace at 1am
ConstantlyChanging · 10/04/2021 19:53
I wouldn't normally 'pick on' someone in the news for their actions but am I alone in thinking this is actual insanity? A man took his children to Buckingham Palace at 1am to pay their respects to the Duke (to 'avoid the crowds').
He also says they were 'quite cut up' about the Duke dying. I mean come on - he's 99 and you didn't know him?! Why the hell would you drag your kids out in the freezing cold street to stand in front of the palace at 1am?
YABU: This is normal behaviour
YANBU: This is ridiculous
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

1am does seem a strange time. Very late for children.
If I was local I'd probably take my children at around 10pm - assuming it was reasonably quiet then. I'd not travel far or go in the early hours of the morning though.
I imagine the kids found it quite an adventure though.

I have another theory, maybe he is a divorced dad that never really got involved with family life but is now Super Keen Expert Parent and does these Adventures with his children in a show of spite to his ex wife, 'see its not that hard bringing up children, what did you ever moan about?'

Oh great, now we will have endless grief vampires all outdoing each other, blithering on how much of an amazing person they are. How they wouldn't/would want x,y and z like they have been besties for life.
When in reality the closest they got was seeing them on tv and know diddly squat about the person.

Ha! Yes, this. Disney Dad takes kids out to experience history. Drops them off with Mum the next day completely knackered and miserable because they've been up so late, Mum has to pick up the slack.

Bit of a leap 😂
