Some people are very tolerant but others just seem to be lacking in the area. Even though we all love having a quiet moment at times, there are going to be situations where it can be difficult to have the privacy that we desire.
This is especially true for parents who take their young babies out to eat. When they are seated at a table, they are typically stressed out while they wait for the child to act out. Nobody is as familiar with this as Lucy Hatami. She was out to eat breakfast when her baby got fussy. Considering she was dealing with an 8-month-old son, it probably wasn’t a big surprise. Her son started crying and Lucy, being a concerned mother, took her son outside so as not to disturb others.
We all know that having a crying baby on your hands can be embarrassing but that is what children do. It can also be disturbing to others and some places have even banned children in an attempt to be kind to others.
One young man was in the same restaurant eating breakfast with his father and he felt the need to say something. In the end, he got an earful from his dad.
Lucy went on social media to talk about her experience:
“That moment when your [sic] in a restaurant trying to have breakfast whilst your 8-month-old son is crying and a boy (early 20s) muttering, ‘I wish she’d shut that thing up!’”
“Before I could even respond, his dad comes up behind him clips him round the ear and says, ‘What and you think you were perfect? You were a right little sod.’”
“Now stop being a brat, go up there and apologize to her and offer to get her breakfast as she clearly has her hands full!”
That dad really deserves some respect. It’s nice to know that he was ready, willing and able to correct his son for something he said that was clearly out of line.
“So I got my buffet breakfast with waiter service along with a lovely coffee…”
“Thank you to that dad who even after 20 odd years still remembers the difficulty of being parents to babies!”
The post ended up going viral and was shared by thousands of other mothers. Now if only other parents would be willing to step up to the same plate.
