I recently learned that Qantas Club no longer serves sachets of peanut butter at breakfast. I found this difficult to cope with. Vegemite alone cannot sustain me.
The reason for this situation is that the kind of annoying middle class idiots who cannot or will not supervise their children in many other public or communal spaces, like supermarkets and libraries, also take their children into Qantas Club.
The children are allowed to wander unsupervised there where they inevitably are drawn to and consume the peanut butter. Some of them have allergies and could die. Anaphylaxis is a serious condition, and should not be trivialised.
However, the ban in Qantas Club seems more about supervision and less about medicine. Qantas doesn’t want to be sued by retards who won’t take responsibility for their own behaviour and that of their children. So the result is another nanny-state ban instead of anything more contextual.
Perhaps Qantas can create an adult breakfast room where people like me can eat peanut butter on toast in peace. Sigh.
