From the Northern California news site

A trio of Anderson girls are in hot water with their fast-food employer for dipping themselves into the sink used to clean dishes.

One of the girls bathing in the sink at the Anderson Kentucky Fried Chicken posted the photos on the Internet and after management learned of them, all three were suspended today, said Cheri, assistant manager at the restaurant. She declined to give her last name.

“The girls are being reprimanded for it,” Cheri said.

She said she learned of the photos, which had been posted publicly on the girl’s social Web site, during the dinner rush today.

Reason #2: Chuck E. Cheese Has to Call in the Cops Quite Often

According to a report in The Wall Street Journal:

Chuck E. Cheese’s bills itself as a place "where a kid can be a kid." But to law-enforcement officials across the country, it has a more particular distinction: the scene of a surprising amount of disorderly conduct and battery among grown-ups.

Fights among guests are an issue for all restaurants, but security experts say they pose a particular problem for Chuck E. Cheese’s, since it is designed to be a haven for children. Law-enforcement officials say alcohol, loud noise, thick crowds and the high emotions of children’s birthday parties make the restaurants more prone to disputes than other family entertainment venues.

The environment also brings out what security experts call the "mama-bear instinct." A Chuck E. Cheese’s can take on some of the dynamics of the animal kingdom, where beasts rush to protect their young when they sense a threat.

This list curiously omits my altercation from last year when a dozen of my vinyl and leather wearing friends that a frequent a local Goth/Industrial/BDSM club decided to go to Chuck E. Cheese’s on a saturday afternoon to drink seven dollar beer pitchers.

We were asked to leave after several parents complained about our presence. Officially, we were expelled because the floggers my friend was wearing on her belt violated the establishment’s weapons policy.
