He Made a Young Boy Cry After Yelling at Him in A Restaurant but He Doesn’t Think He’s Wrong

A young man recently asked if he was wrong for screaming at a young child and making him cry after his mother didn’t stop him from running around and annoying everyone else in the restaurant. Here’s what the man had to say.

The student began, “I went to eat with some friends from college at a restaurant near campus. The place is not the nicest, but it’s better food than McDonald’s, and we used to go there when we wanted to have a “semi-special occasion.” This time, the four of us had passed our exams.”

It was lunchtime; the place was not completely full, but full enough. The weather was bad, so we stayed inside, as did everyone else. Most people there were adults.

Two women, who the man describes as “an older one and a middle-aged one,” came into the restaurant with a baby and an 8-year-old child.

The man and his friends were at a table in the middle of the restaurant, facing the door, so he saw the family walk in, though he thought little of it at the time.

This is because, as a rule, he is not normally somebody that is easily annoyed or irritated by children.

As the man and his friends waited for their food, they sat and spoke to one another. The child, meanwhile, was playing with the baby.

They were making a bit of noise, but so were the man and his friends. In both groups, there was chatter and company.

The Kid Started To Wander

“After our food came, though, the kid started to wander around. He wanted to read a sign near the door, then one near the back. After that, he wanted to go to the bathroom, and then he wanted to go outside, etc. It was kind of annoying but quite easy to just ignore.”

Neither of the women accompanying the child said anything or tried to stop him.

At one point, the child started to run around, yelling as he did so and playing something by himself. When he continued, and neither of the adults with him did anything to stop him, other people began to look annoyed too.

The kid then accidentally hit the chair of one of the man’s friends. As they were at the middle table, he began running in circles around it.

After he had rounded the table three times, the man put his arm out to stop him from running.

“I told him to stop that and to go sit down and wait until he’s home to run around because it’s inappropriate to bother other people in a public space,” the man recounted.

He added, “I also told him I’ll have him wait outside alone if he doesn’t behave, which I was obviously not going to do because I can’t; it was just to scare him off.”

The Woman Complained

The child started to cry after this, and one of the women (presumably his mother) came and told the man off.

The exasperated man told the woman that if she had been able to keep her child quiet, he wouldn’t have had to say anything.

A member of staff approached and asked what had happened. The woman told him that the man had shouted at her child.

“The member of staff said that we should just let this go for once and that next time they will manage the situation better. The woman was fuming, and she left with her family,” the man said.

Was He Out Of Line?

The man’s friends told him that he did yell at the child but that they were also very annoyed by him and that they were on the verge of complaining as well.

The man is now questioning whether complaining would have been the best thing to do. He decided to ask the online community whether he should have acted differently.

The Internet Responded

One internet user asked, “Your friends told you you were screaming at a child, and you still don’t know if you were in the wrong?”

Another agreed, “You threatened him with being left outside all alone until he cried, and you still don’t know if you were a jerk?”
