Back to Petes. Hope dad would lurn to be nice to people who wait on us. I feel sad for them when he complanes. I want to tell them he drinks and gets mean.. It makes me want to stay home.
The weerd people were back. new people with kids there. The little girl spilt milk, and they all use nakins to clean it. No one got mad. No one. They dont even tell her shes stupid. I was waitin for a yell, and no one did it. I stare at their table. I like to hear them laffin. They like each other.
