    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    I've been to that pumpkin patch - it was fun. Good luck...

    We who are about to die (laughing) salute you! As a father of six now grown children, I have SEEN the elephant. Class trips, band trips, team trips, club trips, I have wrangled them ALL. From snotty-nosed pants wetters to teenage wise asses I now...profoundly miss every kid I've ever chaperoned. Enjoy the fun!

    Field trips are for learning. No doubt, pgrass101, will learn something!

    My sympathy goes with you. While I never did a school field trip, I did get roaped into a field trip to a Cleveland Indians baseball game with a cub scout pack on Youth Day way back in the mid 60s. Horrifying experience! While most of our pack was fairly well behaved, there were hundreds of screaming rug rats from all kinds of youth groups, most of whom I figured were juvenile deliquents by their actions! I seemed like none of the kids really wanted to watch baseball! All they wanted to do was throw popcorn, candy, other stuff, and pop at each other. Not quite as bad as the food fight in Animal House, but close! My first, and last experience with that kind of outing! I still shudder to think about it. Hope your trip is a whole lot better.

    It may require repeated doses to fully recover. Or possibly a more powerful dose of something stronger.

    The good news, starting in about 5-6 years your kid won't want to be seen alive with you.
    The most humiliating thing you could do to him would be to agree to go on a field trip and help
    the teacher chaperone. Patience; and more mead.

    One of the MOST ENLIGHTENING experiences in my long life was at Chuck E. Cheese. My son was ~7 and asked to a schoolmate's birthday party at C.E.C. He & I got dropped-off at the shindig while Mom went shopping. I had enjoyed about three hours in the place (Total & complete chaos. Made a WHO Concert seem quiet & serene.)

    I stepped up to buy a beverage & saw a little, green, plastic derby sitting atop a vaguely familiar device behind the drink counter. I motioned to the leprechaun's hat & quietly asked the server what might be under there. She smiled knowingly and lifted the hat just enough to flash...a BUDWEISER Tap into my view! Who would have ever guessed? Holy CRAP! They serve BEER at Chuck E. Cheese! It was undoubtedly the FINEST beer I had EVER TASTED. Mom was none too happy that I had quickly downed three (small ones) before she came to pick us up. That was over 15 years ago & I haven't been inside Chuck E. Cheese since. But if I'm again forced to go, at least I know where I'm sitting.
