Over the Easter weekend we went with my 12 year old son and 9 year daughter out for lunch. It was great place with a large conservatory and plenty of tables outside. Being a sunny day we decided to eat outside. The children and I went in to get a menu and my son took one out to Lori, the sliding door he tried shut on the way bounced back and was left half open. After looking at the specials board an older very posh lady completely started on me complaining my children had no manners, and left the door open (bear in mind she was sitting in a conservatory and it was 20 degrees outside) I explained my son was not rude had very good manners and if she had asked him to shut the door he would have done so. I was told “don’t even bother, do you not know how to bring up children!” I started to reply arguing that my children had good manners, but she cut me off saying “don’t bother, go away you silly man” I stood there partly in shock, and said I was going no where. So stood there for a while whilst she grumbled and moaned at me some more.
Standing in line to get the food a older couple came up to me and said, ” your children were not impolite in the slightest and it is grumpy old people like that – that give us a bad name” Several other older people in the conservatory tried to protest to her that she had been unreasonable. A few even came outside to eat as the that atmosphere she exuded was so negative.
On leaving I wished I had taken a photo of her as I thought we could start a website titled “Is this the grumpiest person in Britain”El cártel full
