Well, here is something you just do not hear or see every day…

A temper tantrum at a children’s play center caused $800 in damage.

It wasn’t a kid having the meltdown…..Wait for it….It was a mother. The owner of In Play Family Fun on Santa Barbara Boulevard said Florangel Smith, 41, complained about the $10 admission fee, then got violent.
When an employee tried calling 911, the suspect is accused of trying to rip the phone right out of their hand. Now the business said Smith is banned from the Play Center for life. Susan said she let Smith and her young daughter inside to play, but the mother is accused of becoming violent after an argument over their kids. She said the woman swept everything off the front counter, and hurled an iPad across the room. All in front of her 7-year-old daughter.
