Everyone is talking about an article published in a major newspaper earlier this week…and no it’s not about Kochie.
The story goes that a couple were out for brunch on the weekend and encountered a rather noisy (aka high pitched screaming) toddler at the cafe they often frequented. Here’s a snippet (you can read the full story here);
“Is that a child crying?” my partner asked me with a concerned look on his face. I replied yes but thought to myself, this wasn’t normal crying. This was a piercing, shrill cry and sounded like the child was in pain. I glanced around and everyone in the café looked disturbed.
After around 10 minutes of continuous crying, my partner had clearly had enough. “It’s one thing for a baby to cry but this is ridiculous.” Thinking that he wanted to leave without eating, I began to gather my things. But he had other ideas. “No one has said anything to them, so I am.
“I’m sorry, but your child has not stopped crying since we got here,” he said. “Everyone in the café is upset by it. Can you either take your child for a walk or find another solution? This is my Sunday too.”
“Chill out mate”, came the father’s reply. My partner walked back to our table. A few minutes later, the mother and her child began walking towards the door. As they walked past us, she turned to my partner. “We are leaving and you are a despicable human being.”
Once outside the door she mouthed the words “f*** you.”
A few minutes later, the father walked past our table and stuck his finger up at us. By then, the entire café was watching on. I said to my partner that we should leave, now.”
