Being the mother of an infant is hard. Babies cry, they poop in public, and sometimes when you take them out in public, you find evidence that they won't get any easier to handle, even after 20 years. Just ask Lucy Hatami.
Hatami tried to get out of the house for some breakfast, but according to her recent Facebook post, a 20-something brat at a nearby table had no patience for her baby's crying. Fortunately, a fellow parent came to the rescue.
The post reads:
That moment when your in a restaurant trying to have breakfast whilst your 8month old son is crying and a boy (early 20s) tuts muttering "I wish she'd shut that thing up!"..... Before I could even respond his dad comes up behind him clips him round the ear and says "what and you think you were perfect? You were a right little sod. No stop being a brat, go up there and apologise to her and offer to get her breakfast as she clearly has her hands full!" So I got my buffet breakfast with waiter service along with a lovely coffee... thank you to that dad who even after 20 odd years still remembers the difficulty of being parents to babies!
Great job dad! His kindness and common sense were so appreciated that Hatami's post went viral all over the internet. Someecards spoke to Hatami about her story's success.
"I honestly wasn't thinking it would go as viral as it has," she said. "I was just writing a fb status about the bizarre encounter I had."
So let that be a lesson to everyone with adult children out there: it's never too late to be appreciated as a great parent.
