    There's NO way it'd take 'until the next day' to realize you've LEFT YOUR SON.


    AND - WHY THE HELL didn't the son give the restaurant employees his phone number? Parents name? etc?

    Who says he didn't? Nothing in the story about that. You think they did it on purpose?

    Either he didn't give them the number, or the people at Chuck E. Cheese went directly to the authorities. Still, you'd think someone would have contacted the family before a day had passed.

    If he didn't his parents would have been called right away; wouldn't have 'waited a day to notice he was missing' right?

    I would for sure, but he has an Hispanic surname. Different cultures. In my world my kid comes with me and goes home with me. In Hispanic and other cultures aunts, uncles, grandparents - the extended family all look after the kids. Still, a whole day, inexcusable...
