If you want to embarrass your children, drop them off at school wearing a muumuu and a mud mask. If you want to scar your children for life, pick them up from school wearing a full Freddy Krueger costume and carry a boombox blasting The Circle Of Life at full volume. No matter your ultimate goals for your child, what you should never do is have the cops break up an argument over the never-ending custody problems between you and your ex in the middle of the dentist’s office.
Sadly, as we all know, Jon and Kate Gosselin have already spoiled any chance they have of winning the title of Parent of the Year, so I guess they figured they had nothing to lose.
TMZ reports that Jon and Kate acted like rotten cavities in a dentist’s office in Wyomissing, PA yesterday. Either Jon or Kate took one of their eight children to the dentist. But when it came time to leave, Jon and Kate “erupted” over who was going to take the child home and started fighting over their custody situation. TMZ notes that their custody arrangement is private, but that they have some sort of shared custody. The fight got so bad that the police were eventually called.
Isn’t going to the dentist as a child traumatic enough as it is without your parents getting into a shouting match in the lobby? Jon and Kate’s behavior is beyond inexcusable. That poor, poor kid. The pediatric dentist’s office is already a place fraught with peril. The Sunset magazines are filled with confusing casserole ideas, and the Highlights magazines have been ripped to shreds by toddlers. There is an eerie buzzing noise that seems to get louder when you yawn, and the fish tank always has a bloated floater in it.
Here’s how the drama ended, according to TMZ’s source:
Jon ended up taking the kid with him, and cops told the pair to take up their gripes with a judge. Nobody was arrested in the incident.
You’d think these two would learn to keep civil in public, but there seems to be no limit to their selfish, attention-seeking behavior. They really would have been better off showing up dressed like clowns and and farting a libretto out of their butts. It would have been much, much less embarrassing for all of us.
