People applauded when a mom got kicked out of a restaurant today :(
I was at a restaurant for brunch for my MIL's birthday. My kids are 10 and 13, so it wasn't an issue that this was a bit of an uptight place- no kid's menu, quiet inside, fancy foods. In fact, my 13yo was loving it.
There was a mom two tables over with a little boy who looked 4-5ish. He was restless and bored and yelling out at her loudly, but she just kept ignoring him. I felt bad for both, but I know some kids quiet down when they don't get attention, and as a mom I'm used to it, so it didn't register. When his food got there, he didn't like it (I know because he screamed it), and started to cry. Again, his mom didn't take him anywhere.
I guess people complained, because the manager went over and told them to leave. The mom started to flip out about how he's a child and they're ridiculous, but he was standing firm. She tried to claim they weren't leaving, and when he threatened to call the police, she got up to leave. By then, the dining room started clapping as her and her son walked out, behind the rest of their party. She looked on the verge of tears and her son was crying because he'd understood they were getting kicked out.
My MIL, FIL, SIL and BIL all said "good" when they were kicked out. I was pretty taken aback that they were like that. Idk, what do you think?
