I would not let my kid scream in a crowded restaurant for 45 minutes and disturb the other people. Those parents were assholes.

Pretty sure there is way more to the story than what is being played out on social media. Click here to enlarge
The mom supposedly came forward with her side and her version is much different, of course. Somewhere in the middle of this weird 15 minutes of fame social media cluster Fuck is what really happened.

And Julie said "Futz", "Futz" said Julie.
"Futz around until my return."
The definition of "futz" was something we had yet to learn,
But we tried to do it anyway, anyway,
'Cause Julie, we'll do anything you say.

I think the owner is super annoying in interviews and her point is getting lost in the shuffle because of it. I don't agree with her screaming at the kid, either. But I agree with her point. It's rude to get a kid fuss that long.

Opinions are like orgasms. Mine matters most and I could care less if you have one.

You don't yell at someone's child and you don't leave your child to cry in a restaurant with others for any extended period. Who would order pancakes and leave them just out of reach of hungry child? I need video.

The kid was 21 months old, they were feeding her small pieces at a time.

What an epic fail that meal was. Good thing Facebook wasn't around when I had a tantruming toddler. Click here to enlarge

A gazillion years ago my youngest son threw a massive tantrum in the middle of a grocery store. He was maybe 3 years old at time time. I finally had no choice but to pick him up over my shoulder (he was kicking and screaming) and prepare to walk out of the store. Just as I reached the entrance to leave, he screamed at the top of his lungs "THIS IS NOT MY MOM".

Needless to say, security was all over me before I made it to my car. Thank God there where no such thing as social media back then.

The security officer ended up laughing his tail off. :vs_boom:

Can I vote that both were wrong?

Owner shouldn't have yelled at the kid (but after 45 minutes of screaming I think the owner was within her rights to bring the to go boxes and ask them to leave).

Parents should have left or ordered to go liar while I totally understand tired/cranky kids Aren't always purposefully misbehaving they are still a disruption and common courtesy means you don't make others suffer.

My son is on the spectrum and meltdowns were always a possibility-we were always prepared to leave if he had one. That's what being a parent entails-sometimes you have to miss out on what you want to properly deal with your children.

we were at dinner the other night and this table of 4-5 families were letting their kids run around it and goof off in the restaurant. One kid ran into a waitress and she almost tripped over him. She didn't yell, but told him to sit down. Something like "opps go back to your chair buddy" and the parents got mad at her.

People are assholes who think their special snowflakes amuse and make all of us squeal with delight.

Assholes abound in this situation. The owner was pissed at the parents (rightfully so!) yet she chose to focus her commentary on the toddler. Stupid. Parents should have intervened way way sooner with unhappy child. Selfish.

We took our kids out to restaurants a lot from infancy on.... But we were ON IT when our snowflakes were getting antsy or tired in restaurants.... Ramping up? Out you go little one! It's walk around outside time! They learned quickly what was expected in the situation and were removed from it if they couldn't keep it together in the moment for whatever reasons.

This is called raising a child as opposed to letting them grow up.
