The other day I took my 9-year-old son shopping for shoes and out to lunch, just a nice little Mother/Son bonding time. He chose to eat at McDonald's because he's got a thing about eating one of every cheeseburger ever made, and he ordered the next one on his list, a Double Quarter Pounder. While we were eating, two mothers came up to us to castigate me for buying him such a large cheeseburger. I was stunned into silence, but my son spoke up and explained his little project and stated that we don't eat fast food very often and "It's not like I'm overweight!" The mothers in question were what you'd have to call Pushing Maximum Density, and they got angry because they thought he was insulting them when he was just trying to explain. The whole encounter upset my son greatly because he didn't mean any harm in any way.
What's your opinion?
