Dining etiquette is practiced with respect to other diners at a restaurant. After all, if you’re eating in a public place then it only makes sense to be on your best behavior. This mother from Beijing, China seemingly forgot about being considerate and some basic decency. Her obnoxious behavior made netizens shame her role as a parent. Some netizens even suggested the restaurant management to keep the bowl and let the woman use it again when she visits them again.
According to a viral video posted on Weibo (China’s Social Media Site), the mother was seen with her toddler son at a restaurant. Her son demanded for her to take him to the restroom as he needed to pee. The mother couldn’t be bothered to take her child and so she told him to do it on his own. She then told her son to pee in one of the empty soup bowls they had on their table.
Apparently, the woman was busy playing games on her phone. Eventually someone from the restaurant approached her for her inappropriate behavior and guess what, she didn’t even care. In response to the critic, she told:
“It doesn’t matter because the restaurant is going to wash the dishes anyway!”
The restaurant management decided to get rid of all the utensils that the mother and son used. A staff-worker who worked in said restaurant for 10 years shared that it was the first time that a customer had ever done such a thing.
“We really don’t understand why the customer didn’t just bring her son to the toilet. We have restroom facilities at every level for customers’ convenience.”
This incident unsurprisingly garnered negative reactions from netizens. Everyone shared how disgusted they were towards this careless mother.
