Lucy Hatami, a mother from the UK, took her 8-month-old son on a “rare adventure.” She didn‘t have time to make breakfast so she decided they both could eat well at the restaurant. And this was the first time she took her baby to eat out with her.
During her meal, the inevitable thing happened: Hatami’s son started crying very loudly. The woman knew that other visitors of the restaurant wanted to eat in peace and quiet so she was very embarrassed. While she was trying to calm down her son, she heard a guy at the next table, who appeared to be about 20 years old, saying, “Shut that thing up!”
Before Lucy could even reply, the father of that guy interfered. He clipped his rude son round the ear and said, “What, you think you were perfect? You were a right little sod. Now stop being a brat, go up there apologize to her and offer to get her a breakfast as she clearly has her hands full!”
Lucy was stunned. The guy did what his father told him, and the woman got a buffet breakfast and a lovely coffee.
Lucy shared her breakfast adventure on Facebook. She wrote, “Thank you to that dad who even after 20 odd years still remembers the difficulty of being parents to babies!” This story is a reminder that we should show respect and patience to moms with babies and that you are never too old to get clipped round the ear for being a jerk!
