Kids can be annoying, especially when they’re loud in places that we do not want them to be. Nico Alary, the co-owner of Holybelly in Paris, France, said restaurants don’t like babies, toddlers, and infants. “Even if the owner is baby-friendly, most [servers] aren’t. They are messy, noisy, sticky, clumsy, disruptive miniature trainwrecks,” he wrote. “If you work in our industry, don’t tell me you don’t … go ‘f***-f***-f***’ in your head when you see a charming couple with a pair of adorable kids pushing the doors of the restaurant you’re working at. I just won’t believe you.”
Alary highlighted that this doesn’t mean the workers despise babies; maybe they’re also parents. “Those are two totally unrelated things. It just means that [they’re] a seasoned professional and that deep down they know that one way or the other s*** is about to hit the fan,” he explained. This is a story about one of those times.
Recently, Redditor u/Wrong_Ad_3951 ran out of patience with a “shrieking” boy while trying to enjoy a meal at a nice restaurant, so she went over to the nearby table to ask his parents to do something about it. However, after hearing the mom’s reaction, she started wondering if she overstepped.
