 Or do you just tell your server on the way out the door ? Twice in the past week I've had moms tell me as they were leaving that child puked on the floor and they're sorry. WTF? I don't clean puke......ever..........especially a strangers puke. If you do I just want you to know that is a nasty thing to do.

I have had to do that numerous times. My youngest dd used to throw up alot when she was a baby. I would never expect a stranger to clean up after my kid!!! I'm sorry you have to deal with that.

My kids have only puked in a restaurant once.

At Disney.

And no we didn't clean it up, we started to, and our server yelled at us, (not in a mean way), that it was her job, and our job was to worry about our daughter. Do I think she wanted to clean up my kids puke. Nope. But, she was so overly nice, helpful and insisted it was her job not ours.

We tipped extremely heavy.

Haha. No! I did tell someone right away. The business has the cleaning supplies to clean that nasty stuff up.

I would wipe up the best I could, but honestly the last bit would be up to the restaurant.  It's not like I carry bleach and carpet cleaner with me.  I would apologize profusely and leave a big tip.

 I havnt had that problem. But i would make an attempt to clean up as well as i could my childs vommit. Ive been a waitress, it stinks sometimes, but i figured it was just a hazard of the job. I only care to wait on, feed and clean up after my own family. I dont think i could do it again.

No, I would clean it up. If it was all over the floor I might ask for a mop though.
