Last Saturday my SO and I went to Olive Garden with our 7 month old son to celebrate our friend's sisters' birthday.
We got there and all of use sat down.
About 1/2 into it my son started getting hungry.
I went out to a waitress and said that I need to breastfeed is there a place where i can?
She said maybe the bathroom.
I just looked at her blankly.
She said that she would go get a manager.
A nice hostess came out instead and I explained to her if there was a place where i could breastfeed my son.
There was an empty table in the corner and I sat in the corner to breastfeed.
Being a Saturday evening, Olive Garden was so busy that the waiting time was 45 minutes. But that hostess seem to have understood and seem to have related because she said to my son, enjoy your food.
So she made the other customers wait to be seated so i could take 20 minutes to feed my son.
I thought that was very thoughtful of her to do and I've never experienced anything wonderful like that before.
When i was done i let her know so she could sit the other customers.
I thanked her and told her how much i appreciate what she did for us.
she said no problem.
maybe i should have tipped her?
maybe i should do something else to show her that i appreciate her?
but i don't know her name.
or maybe i should just appreciate it and let it go?
what would you have done to show that you appreciated what she did?
