restaurant problem

I wanted some opinions on something that happened at a restaurant earlier this week.

I was at the mall with my 3 year old, and decided to stop into a restaurant for some lunch. He has been a little restless he whole trip, and was begging to go to the park. I said after lunch. He was being pretty well behaved, but was eyeing another little boy and looked like he wanted to play.

We sat down and ordered, when my phone rang. It was really important because it was from somewhere I had a job interview last week. My son got up, took off running and him and the other little boy started chasing each other, maybe for about a minute.I was about to get up when he knocked into a table, and a big plate of pasta fell into a teenage girls lap.

She screamed "what the f***" and then looked at my son and told him he was a brat. I came over and told her to shut the f*** up, no one talks to my son like that, he's just a child. The restaurant asked me to pay her bill. I said F*** NO, but they gave her a gift card, new meal and asked me to leave and please don't come back!!

Do you think I was in the wrong in not paying? What do you think of thee restaurant giving her so much free stuff? I think ridiculous!

I think that was very nice of the restaurant.

I also think that you were being a bitch. You should take responsibility of YOUR child.

You should have apologized and paid her bill...or you could have taken care of the whole thing by teaching your child not to act like that is a restaurant or not even waiting a minute when he got up and asked the person calling to hold on while you brought him back to the table. And yes, even as a mother, if a child knocked a plate of food in my lap I would have had the same reaction. And I would have asked the staff to have you leave.

I think you're in the wrong for not controlling your child
