    Remember when this asshole intruded on reporters doing their jobs?

    You can't possibly be equating the arena and the press conference, right? You don't have to stretch that far to make your point.

    Yeah, Ty. Yeah, he did.

    Which reporters have missed deadline because Curry's kid interrupted for a few seconds?

    You can't possibly be thinking the presence of Steph Curry's daughter prevented working professionals from doing their jobs, right?

    See, I think Ty's main thing is that it was annoying. Which I can't argue with. Kids, in general, are very annoying. :)

    And, that's what makes this even more ridiculous. Riley Curry is a 0.2 on the 1-to-10 scale of how annoying a 2-year-old can be.

    I never said that. I said it would be annoying. In fact that is the only word I've used to describe it this whole time. When my boss brings her kid in to work because she couldn't find a sitter, I find it annoying. I still get my work done, though.

    I agree with this, but that works both ways.

    Alma's comparisons have been just as crazy.

    Is this not similar?

    A few weeks ago, I went shopping for a grill at Lowe's. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I had my maniac toddler son with me. I ended up not buying anything because I couldn't concentrate on what the salesperson was telling me, because my son was acting like a lunatic.

    Should that salesperson be able to petition his/her boss to bar children from the store? Or, should he/she suck it up as a cost of doing business and move on?

    Never mind that, as a pure analogy to Curry's situation, I would've bought the grill anyway.

    Wait, didn't you say you worked at Home Depot*? I hope your bosses don't read this board.
