Party Parent Gets Iced
So yesterday I was at a birthday party for a 3 year old with Ice Prince. You'd think it would be the children who would drive me insane, but it's actually the parents.

It wasn't meant to be a pool party, but there was a kiddie pool out back and some kids waded around. Later on, one parent of three dim boys picks up Ice Prince (who is trying to climb the slide) and puts him at the top to slide down. At the bottom, Colin starts to cry.
Parent: Is he hurt?
Me: No you offended his pride. He wanted to do it himself.
Parent: He's wet you know.
Me: Yeah, it's okay, it's just water.
Parent: But he's all wet
Me: Well, he'll dry eventually, won't he?
