My mothers group girls and I were out at lunch today. So we walk into a cafe (not an upper class one either, just a normal cafe).
So I park the pram while the other two sit down and organise their kids and I go to the cash register and ask the guy if he can heat the bottle up. All good. Come back to the table and before I can do anything Patricia has grabbed one of those sugar things they leave there and broken it open and there's sugar all over the table.
I was like oh crapola. The waitress came over and started wiping the sugar off the table with an angry look on her face. I said "I'm so sorry about that she did it before I could stop her". She gives me a dirty look and doesn't say anything. After a couple of minutes she says "Well it's just annoying because sugar is slippery and can make people fall over". Again I repeat that I'm really sorry and she just ignores me and walks off in a huff.
She comes back to take our orders. We order. One of my mothers group friends orders something then at the end says "sorry do you mind If I change my order to...". She says "Sure what do you want?" All the while rolling her eyes and shaking her head. Yes my friend can't see her but I and the other mother can!!!
Then when one of the kids spills some water she comes over again, lifts up my friends drink bottle and moves it by slamming it down on the table in front of her and persists to wipe up the water. I couldn't believe it. I've had rude waiters before but she seriously takes the cake.
Than she serves the meals. She puts my plate down in front of me. I need to feed my son so I get him out of the pram. She then brings over the toast that is on a different plate. My son tries to grab a piece of toast off the plate but she saves it. She then huffs and gives me the dirtiest look ever. By this time I'm thinking "HE IS 7 MONTHS OLD. WTF am I meant to do? I thought you'd finished serving the food for gods sake".
After that she was just rude in general (manner, way she spoke etc). I mean if they don't want children or toddlers/babies in there than just put a sign up.
We definately won't be going back there again!!
