    Apparently, Holly and Alix didn’t pay much attention to their lessons on table manners from Val… let alone learn to savor the meal.

    I love this family, but true table
    manners should have been taught
    a long time ago.

    I’m in agreement; send the girls
    home in a cab.

    As the girl’s seldom ever get to do “Grown-up” activities on their own “Allowing” them to go home on their own by taking a cab could be quite a treat. And with Grandma there at home you know that the cab ride would be the end of the “grown-up” activities by the two girls for the rest of the night.

    If the meal was all that good, you wouldn’t stop to relax over it: you’d dig in!

    At least they ate it. Now be quiet while Mom and boyfriend try to relax and enjoy themselves.

    Never take the kids to a 4 star restaurant at that age – they don’t appreciate it and they annoy everyone.

    Yes.

    And The Katzenjammer Kids should have stopped tormenting the Captain a hundred years ago, and Dennis should have stopped annoying Mr. Wilson sixty years ago.

    And in the last panel, her martini and his beer have turned into wine. Miraculous! :)

    I wouldn’t have brought them along in the first place.

    As I said before, most kids Holly and Alix’s ages know how to behave. They just don’t do it. If I want to relax after a restaurant meal, I don’t take the kids along (or I make sure that they have their hand-held devices). True confession: I read at restaurants, unless it’s a special occasion. I know, I know, I’m horrible!
