Mother shocked to see note about her 'screaming kid' from fellow diners
How a child is going to react in a bustling restaurant is typically hard to predict. In the case of Katie Leach from Idaho, her 10-month-old son was pretty excited and expressed his enthusiasm vocally.
So much so, in fact, that the diners at a table next to them at the Texas Roadhouse took notice, penned a note, and dropped it off at Leach's table.
The message read, "Thank you for ruining our dinner with your screaming kid! Sincerely, The Table behind You." Leach was shocked to see the note and shared it with the local news outlet KTVB on Facebook, along with a detailed account of what had transpired.
She wrote in part, "...his new thing is yelling...I'm doing my best to teach him indoor voice and to not yell back at me when telling him no etc, But he is only 10 (almost 11 months) and LEARNING...We all tried quieting him down which a majority of the time he did but he also was so excited to be around all the commotion."
The mother also said that she alerted the manager to the situation, and he asked the note-writing guests to leave after they'd finished their meal. While responses to her post were largely supportive, other parents in similar situations have received mixed reactions on social media.
In July, a restaurant owner in Maine was criticized by some, but applauded by others, for telling somebody's child to quiet down.
