I took Lotus to Chuck E Cheese for the first time today. I had promised her Mommy and Lotus time and it seemed like a good idea.
And it was.
She played games and got four tickets from each game that had one. Fine. Then after playing one for a few times she had a great game and really racked up the points. Over 300 points. I wondered how many tickets she was going to get.
The same as when she got 15 points.
This strikes me as pretty damn stupid.
Seriously, how do we show them that they get better if they get the same number of tickets for a shitty game as they get for an incredible game? I shook my head but thought maybe it was just in the little kid's section. Then we had Lotus' first experience with skee ball. It was like all of my experiences with skee ball except she is better at it than I am but we're both pretty crappy.
How many tickets did she get?
How many tickets did the skee ball hot shot get after a pretty amazing game?
Something seriously wrong with this picture.
