Weirdest Kid Drawings From Restaurants
Parents and servers alike can always count on weird drawings from kids at restaurants to spice up the dining experience. Kids, who routinely come up with unintentionally hilarious, and sometimes creepy, artwork, scribble all sorts of bizarre images while waiting for their macaroni and chicken nuggets. Sometimes, to the chagrin of mom and dad, their drawings say much more about their parents than people outside the family are supposed to know. These hungry Picassos have come up with some pretty interesting creations.

A Dine And Dash Was Foiled
From Redditor /u/gil_beard:
There used to be a restaurant in the town I went to college in that was basically a knockoff of Applebee’s called Garfield’s. It had paper strewn across all the tables and crayons, so the waitstaff could write their names down for the customers, and the customers could write whatever they wanted.
I was in there one afternoon with my girlfriend when the mother and daughter in the booth behind us decided to leave without paying for their meal. The waitress was pissed at first but then began laughing when she realized that they had written down their real names repeatedly in crayon all over the table. They were caught less than an hour later, according to the police report.

These Kids Don't Deserve Toys
From Redditor /u/ThHeretic:
A family brought some extremely loud toys to a nice restaurant. Patrons around them complained, so my manager came over and offered to relocate them, which they refused. He gave them a free appetizer but said they would have to put the toys away.
The kids proceeded to draw at least five pictures of my manager getting murdered by jungle cats, tanks, a game of hangman, death incarnate, and some other random stuff. When they left, they left the pictures on the table. My manager proceeded to show every employee in the restaurant all the while laughing himself to death. We got them framed for him for Christmas.

A Killer Drawing
From Redditor /u/NPE37:
My friend worked as a waitress and told me an incredibly disturbing story. She said she was serving a table that included a couple and a child. That couple stood out as the man could not have been older than 25, and the woman was strikingly beautiful but clearly in her 40s. The kid was around six or eight.
My friend returned to the table to take the order, and the kid was furiously scribbling away with the coloring pencils she had brought earlier. In the middle of taking the mother's order the kid said, "This is for you," and handed my friend the picture. The picture was of four people, who were labeled "me," "mom," "Dexter," and "dad." The dad was lying down, and there was blood everywhere. Dexter was holding what appeared to be a bar/bat.
My friend, thinking the kid had maybe seen the show Dexter, asked the kid "And who is Dexter?" The kid pointed to the young man at the table and loudly proclaimed "That's Dexter!"
The mom took the picture and asked the kid "What did you draw?" She took one look at the picture and, white as a sheet, asked the man to look. They looked at each other with a distinct look of panic and said nothing. My friend took the order and they finished their food quickly, paid in cash, and took off. My friend said the atmosphere at the table had noticeably changed after taking the order, and it looked like the woman was very stressed.
"My friend never reported it; she was new at the job and didn't want to appear crazy by jumping to conclusions. Eventually she reasoned that the wife had left the child's dad for the man at the table and maybe that was the reason the child had drawn "Dexter" as having killed his father.

Dead On Arrival
From Redditor /u/DoorwayNinja:
My niece was always quite the drama queen. About nine years ago we were eating at a restaurant and I saw her drawing a lovely landscape. It was adorable watching her draw a sun wearing sunglasses, grass, flowers... and a tombstone. Concerned, I asked what she was drawing. She said, "It is me. We waited so long here I died." She is an even more dramatic teenager now. Help me.

Someone Should Check On This Kid's Dad
From Redditor /u/intotheeast:
I once saw a kid draw a picture of their dad dead with a knife in his chest and him and his mom standing by the body, smiling. It made me concerned about their home life.

A Fishy Situation
From Redditor /u/Pbarrington:
There is a fish and chips shop near where I live called Dicks Fish & Chips, and it encourages kids to draw on the placemats. The best ones are then displayed on the walls. A couple of my favorites express their love for the restaurant:
- 'I love Dicks!'
- 'Nothing like a feed of Dicks'
The owners are really old and don’t get it, which makes it all the more hilarious.
