I just read this article, and reactions differ.

What do you think?

Mother receives spiteful note from fellow diners because her baby yelled during their meal.

'Thank you for ruining our dinner!'

There's too much info missing to decide.

How old was this baby?

Was/is the restaurant a higher end place or family place?

What else was going on?  With the mother/baby? With the couple?

I mean, I've sat next to adults who I felt needed to be taught how to behave in public so I'm not really able to be mad at little kids who are still learning.

If the child was screaming, the mother should have removed him/her from the environment full of overstimulation.

She shared a "recreated version" of the letter on FB for support. I don't believe her. At all.

If I go to Texas Roadhouse I expect loudness. If you think it should be quiet you're ignorant.

team no one. Yes Texas Roadhouse is loud so the ladies should have expected it to be loud. However the mother also should try to keep her baby from yelling all the time as well. I had twins and till they were well behaved enough to be quiet-we did not go out to eat. We started practicing appropriate restaurant behavior at home first. If they were disruptive, we left.

Exactly, why not post the actual letter?

She should have removed her screaming kid from the restaurant. Just another of those moms that think the world should bend over backwards for her precious munchkin.

The article says a lot of that clearly. He's 10 months old. He was excited with the environment. It was as Texas Roadhouse, not some high and mighty restaurant. The ladies were at the next table. How did you miss all that.

This shit about saying things to strangers like this nasty note is getting ridculous. Their dinner is no more important than the mothers.
