Imagine sitting down to a meal with a friend at a restaurant, only to be confronted with not just one, but two babies with dirty nappies being changed on a neighbouring table.
A shocked diner says they were confronted with this exact scene, when they sat down to dinner with their best friend.
“We were seated in a back corner booth. Two young mothers with newborns say down in the booth across from us. They were fed immediately,” the person explained. “After a five minutes or so each baby took a massive dump in their diapers as if they had planned it.
“The mothers, not wanting their bundles of joy to rot in in their excrement, immediately changed their babies on the table for us to see and smell. The smell was rank and overpowering to the point my friend and I were nauseated. The potent combo of the two babies reeked like rotten fruit with a dash of fish and lingered for ages.
“I asked why they did not change the diapers in the washroom. They responded that one of the toilets were plugged the washroom smelled like sh*t.
“I fully support public breastfeeding. That is normal and healthy. I do not support creating a biohazard while I am eating ten feet away.”
The post has been met with thousands of comments, supporting the diner’s decision to confront the mothers.
“That’s also very unsanitary,” one person commented. “Diapers should never be changed on a surface that is used for food prep, or food is served on. Also should not be happening in a room where food prep or eating takes place. Faecal matter is one of the main contaminates that causes food borne illnesses at eating establishments. (Normally because the cook or servers don’t properly wash their hands).”
Another person replied:
“I was once in a hospital cafeteria with my family. We were sitting and chatting after we’d finished eating. We watched a woman a few tables over lay her baby down on the table and change a dirty #2 diaper on the table. She left and didn’t even wipe down the table or anything. I was so appalled.
“We were at the hospital because my family member was extremely ill with the flu. Not saying this is how you get the flu, but it took everything in me not to go up to that woman and ask her “HOW DO YOU THINK PEOPLE GET SICK?!””
