Lucy Hatami, a new mother, bravely took a short trip out of her house with her 8-month-old son for a rare meal at a local restaurant.
But it wasn’t long into her breakfast that Lucy’s son started getting fussy. Like any baby would do, her boy began crying and screaming inside the restaurant.
Lucy was already in a panic, so you can imagine how she felt when she heard a man in his 20’s at a nearby table loudly criticizing her and her baby.
This is what she says:
‘That moment when you’re in a restaurant trying to have breakfast whilst your 8-month-old son is crying and a man (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!”
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!’
Bravo to the young man’s father, who knew you’re never too old for an important parental lesson in patience and respect. Please SHARE Lucy’s story with your friends on Facebook!
