This is still my life: Fuck off with your Quiet Place

My long, slow slide into parental cliche continued recently when I caught the start of the first Quiet Place movie on TV and getting properly annoyed by it.. Because nobody lets their kid get behind them like that, unless they're deliberately doing it to spark drama. 

It's a goddamn apocalypse. Who the shit does that? Just the dumbest fucking people.

I know they're tired and terrified and all that, but letting your kid trail behind like that in that scenario is like forgetting to put on pants before you walk out the door. It's a contrivance to get some tragedy going. Like every other fucking thing today, the film has some good moments and some terrible moments after that, but starting like that was a loud declaration of dumb.
