so, peashakes, what exactly was it that upset you? The noise? The fact that they were having fun? The fact that you considered them too old to play in the water toy? The fact that it wasn't you? Or something else?

I simply cannot empathise with you or understand what the issue is.
I could understand the issue of noise. If two adults scream loudly next to me for 10 minutes this would probably make me go away too.

When kids make too much noise they usually get stopped.

Mine doesn't get stopped from making a din in the playground - that's where I take him to let off some steam. Perfectly seen-and-not-heard children in a playground could only be described as chilling.

Having said that, I might think twice from now on if there is a dodgy bloke on a bench hiding behind his sunglasses...

"A garment worn by Italian or Latino men, who are likely to beat their wives." Amazing how much prejudice (racial or other) can be found in a single definition. I thought it was called a wifebeater because it's popular with supporters of North Melbourne Football Club, who look like they would you-know-what.
I see you must have failed Logic in college/Uni

Mine get stopped when I get disturbed by their noise. I do have a limit of noise tolerance ...

Maybe, but I see humour wasn't a subject where you went to school
