The table next to us had a mother, father and a 2 year old little girl...This little girl was crying, screaming and then started to throw her food and utensils..
The first time a spoon hit my table, I looked over and told the parents to control their child or take her home that they were being disrespectful to others around them by allowing their child to act like that..(The whole time the child was acting out and throwing stuff the parents never said a word to the child) The mother spoke up and told me she was just a toddler and they throw fits, I told her I agree however a restaurant was not the place to allow a child to act like that and it was rude to allow her child to throw items especially when it was hitting my table..
The second time a piece of bread landed in my salad, I looked at Dh and told him enough was enough,
when the waitress came to my table I asked her to either please seat us else where or ask the other table to leave..the waitress ask what was wrong so I told her that the parents at the other table were rude and disrespectful and I was tired of listening to their child, but even more tired of having utensils and food thrown at my table by their child and they allowing it..
Waitress left came back a couple of minutes later with a manager and the other table was told to leave and gave us our meal on the house :)
So we left a 20 tip for the waitress!!!
Would you have asked to be moved?
Edit...This was not a family restaurant, they offer no kids menus and this is a nice place where entrees start at 25.00, Had the parents tried to control their child instead of ignoring her and allowing her to throw items, I would have never said anything...we have three kids and no way would they be allowed to act that way...we go out 2-3 times a year we should be allowed to enjoy a meal without bratty kids
