Hi right back atcha.
It's all kicking off on the Isle of Wight after our local Wetherspoons asked a mother to leave the pub because her 11 month old baby wouldn't stop screaming and people were complaining.
Sorry, I read 'Wetherspoons' and lost interest.
Or perhaps it was the 'baby' thing.
I pegged out at "Wight".
How come a baby was allowed in a pub anyway?
Please can we get rid of the Valentine's banner? Lovely as it is, it's over.
Finished the Ferrero Rocher then, Floppet?
That Wetherspoons baby thing just went to reinforce my opinion that people have got all soft now and go running to the media "because my feelings were hurt and it's so unfair, I have my rights" followed by lots of blubbing and a load of other softies (I hesitate to use the term snowflake but it's apt) saying how awful it is and what's the world coming to. Babies shouldn't be in pubs.
Grow the fuck up!
I know right. I mean I bet she could have left it outside in the smoking area.
No, there's still half of them left in the box. Despite trying my hardest I was only able to eat eight in one sitting and I didn't have any last night. Mr F hasn't eaten "his" Sports Mixtures either. According to the three-day-rule if he hasn't eaten them by tomorrow night they're fair game for me to eat.
Or taken it upstairs into the family area. Or asked a teenager or homeless person to look after it outside.
If a baby in a pub is crying for ten straight minutes, as appears to be the case here, the mother shouldn't just be asked to leave, she should be shot out of a cannon.
Apparently they'r allowed in pubs now
Apparently the decent thing to do is for all people in pubs without kids to go and offer to take the screaming child from the total stranger and calm it down so the mother can eat in peace.
There is no chance in hell I'd offer to take a screaming child!
Two words - "James" and "Bulger".
Wetherspoons allow children until 8pmish. Been there with my niece a few times. It's handy because then I can drink whilst in charge of children, but also it's a bit like the 5th circle of hell.
Babies need alcohol too
Oh dear LORD at the mere mention of Wetherspoons. No, just NO!
When I am in a public house I would not bring my kids with me anyway.
Or is Wetherspoons known more as a restaurant? I’ll stop talking...
It's a fine dining establishment, trattoria, curry house, pub, showbar AND creche.
You forgot the word SHITHOLE.
OT: Who on EARTH is Samantha Harvey? I know my finger is far from on the button of the charts but WHO IS SHE?
I had a mum & baby next to me on our flight home on Monday. My heart sank, but it was perfectly well behaved and even smiled at us. Maybe I should have one after all.
(not really, I'd rather DIE)
Is it acceptable to pick a vegan restaurant for lunch, but don’t tell the others coming that it’s a vegan restaurant?
It was fucking awful.
No, and I'm an occasional meat dodger.
I did wonder if it was you on your holidays until I worked the dates out.
I think if it was veggie, probably fair enough. But vegan, no. Has this person never bored you to death before as a subtle clue?
I used to go loads to the pub with my dad when I was a child and I'd play with this kid sized billiard table. I'd even go down there myself to buy cigarettes for my parents
kids can't catch a break these days
A packet of hula hoops and a bottle of coke and I was more than happy left in a games room all evening, as long as it had Space Invaders.
simpler times, it was
then came hashtags and made a scandal of everything
I lived above a pub in the 70’s/80’s as my mum and dad were the licensees, but I now personally feel that if I go to a pub then it’s to get away from the kids.
the pub was in the building next to ours, very convenient. if I didn't go there with my dad (who wanted to get time off from a mum on edge and two smaller kids), I'd go with my mum to the tanning salon on the ground floor of our own building which was the most BORING THING EVER
aforementioned pub is now a shop for strollers and baby stuff. quite telling really
Yeah I spent loads of my youth in the boozer with my parents/grandparents. A bottle of panda pops, bag of crisps and change for the machines and I was happy.
