Morning Mix Show Notes 8/1
Businesses are telling customers their kids aren't welcome. The down economy is now hitting the Tooth Fairy, and an item from the "You've GOT to be Kidding Me" file.
Yahoo! wrote this week that there appears to be a growing trend in "No Kids Allowed" in certain places. Malaysia Airlines is not allowing babies in first class on many of their flights, a restaurant out east isn't allowing kids under six to eat there and Whole Foods in Missouri is offering child-free shopping hours. Childless adults with disposable income are reportedly behind the trend. Do you think there should be places designated as "Child Free"?
The down economy has now affected the Tooth Fairy. According to a new survey from Visa, the average Tooth Fairy haul is $2.60, down from $3 from last year. When I was a kid, I got 50 cents. What are these kids complaining about?
If you're not familiar with "Christmas Creep", it's when stores slowly start introducing Christmas items in with regular merchandise well ahead of when it should be there. Now, from the "You've GOT to be Kidding Me" file, London department store Harrod's is now putting up their Christmas displays. When asked why, store officials say they are trying to capitalize on the tourist season.
