Unfair or not?

My husband and I took our son to the water park today and while he was playing in the water jets hubby and I sat down under one of the big Pavilon's. Now the spot is clearly labeled "no alcohol" but there was a family there with a few beers but they were being discreet about it and keeping them away from the many kids that were running around. No big deal right? At least I didn't care. But then some college age guys came and they had several bottles of what looked like vodka and they immediately begin to get very drunk and get very loud. This I was not ok with. So I used my cell and called the cops and they showed up and made them leave. My husband thinks I was being unfair. Do you agree?

  • The "college" kids were clearly disruptive to the family/safety of others. Does it matter if it's fair? Life is not fair.

  • Nope, you don't want that around your kids. I would have reported them too.

  • i see his point "rules are rules" but if the family was being discreet and not acting stupid then i don't see what the big deal if there were drunk college kids around my little ones i would've called someone too

  • What I meant was was it unfair to call the cops on the guys but not the other family?

  • Nope. 1 group had respect for the families in the area, and the other felt that it was there own private playground.

  • i'm sure you called the cops bc of how they were acting, not just bc of the drinking. so yes, it's fair
