So I was at dinner tonight with the GF. We were at a place called Marlows (one of our favs for those in the Atlanta area).
Anyway, the table next to us seemedwas what appeared to be grandparents out to dinner with their kid/in law and grandchild (3 or 4 years old). They were passing the baby around amongst themselves. The grandmother was holding the baby and the kid was flailing its arms and legs around and knocked over her wine. The grandmother proceeded to loudly get the attention of the server and demand a new glass of wine, stating they hadn't taken a sip and expected a full glass.
Now, I'm sure under almost any circumstance they would have replaced a glass of wine out of sheer customer service. But, the way this lady approached it asinine.
Is it the restaurants problem in that situation and should someone EXPECT to get a new glass of wine for free?
Don't know the quality level of this place but bringing kids of that age to a lot of places is just inconsiderate. If it's a 7-10 dollar glass of wine then just replace it to avoid the fuss but she had no right to ask for it.
I hate kids. But yes the restaurant should replace it out of generosity. It probably cost the a buck or so.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
Not sure why it is inconsiderate to bring your family anywhere?

Lady should have just asked for a new glass of wine because of what happened. Most places would not charge for the replacement glass.

Do you hate chicken sandwiches and fat chicks who like bacon?
I'm sure thats the ball park of the glass. But yeah, that was more of my thought process - why does she feel justified to demand a new glass of wine?
Its not the restaurants fault or problem if you knock yours over and its not something offered as a free refill.
Chicken sandwich . I hate that fat bitch though, that's Nevin Shapiro's attorney.
Oh, I thought all your sig. pictures was of things you hated.
If you're family consists of 3-4yr olds and that 'anywhere' is a place where people pay good money to have a nice time ie. mid to upper scale restaurants, theatres, etc. then yes, it's inconsiderate. You're punishing others for your refusal to want to parent your children, hire a babysitter.
Yeah, lady is a bitc*
If you're their server, you better give a free refill if you hope to receive a decent tip.

You go out to eat with your family to have a good time and get out of the house. Knowing that you are going to a place where other people will be at you take the risk of children being there. We are talking about a restaurant not a bar. It is very appropriate to take your children to a restaurant. If you want peace and quite then just stay home. JMO
Yup, it's the equivalent of taking a baby to the movie theater. That's a BIG no-no even if its an evening with family.
You realize you didn't actually agree with him right? He's saying it would be ok to take his kids to said movie theater and if you don't wanna run the risk of running into shitty parents then don't leave the house.
I agree with not taking a baby to a movie theater because you have to be quite while the movie is playing. But going out to eat people are constantly talking. You always have that back ground noise of people talking, laughing etc.....
If you want to take your kids to an olive garden or something be my guest, but just know whether it's your opinion or not, taking your children to nicer places is socially unacceptable and just know that everyone hates you and your kids.
LOL talk about reading way to much into something.
Thats fine with me because those people have nothing to do with me. I can sleep well at night knowing I went out with my family and had a good time.
Well I'm glad being a shitty person doesn't bother you. You should probably have some more kids you're not mentally prepared to raise and bestow them upon us as well. Although, if you're actually from Ohio then I don't blame you for any of your lack of manners. Hell you're probably here in Charleston right now ruining people's weekends since Ohio makes up 115% of our tourism.
How is a person shitty because they take there kids to dinner with them?
You still working on my badge? Or did you forget.
Like I said, depends on the establishment. Your "I don't care what others think of me and my kids as long as I have a good time." comment does in fact make you a shitty person. You probably also sit down at a 4 star restaurant and complain about a lack of booster seats or kids menus. Everybody else is paying what you are paying except they didn't show up with walking mess makers.
i hate kids, if i want to take my girl to a nice dinner somebody's damn kids shouldnt ruin it. Have your family dinner at Golden Corral or something, not a nice place.
I quoted the wrong person.
I don't mind babies at a chain restaurant or middle class restaurant but you do not bring babies to more expensive places.
The ONLY way I wouldn't mind babies at some average place would be if the parent got up and brought the kid outside until the baby quit crying.
