John Lewis Café Rage

Went to John Lewis café today, this is Southampton, in case you know it, the one on the top floor with lovely panoramic windows. We were lucky enough to get a table by the window. So DS and I are there enjoying our drinks, minding our own business, when a middle-aged woman comes by with a tray of dirty stuff and dumps it on our table! I gave her a 'wtf?' look and she kind of gesticulated towards the table nearby, where her DH had sat down. So in order to have a clear table themselves, they dumped someone else's dirty stuff on ours! When we'd finished I was going to do the same to them but DS wouldn't let me. WTAF? AIBU for this to give me the rage angry

I'm afraid that I would have put it straight back on her table. DS needs to learn that people cannot treat you like that and get away with it.

I think YABU not to tell her off, bloody cheek!

Blueberry234 Tue 29-Mar-16 17:04:58

I would have moved it back to her table

I would certainly have put it back on her table. Holy shit . . .

FarrowandBallAche Tue 29-Mar-16 17:07:42

I would have told her to move it off my table for sure.

Id of shoved it back on hers with a fucking deathstare

YANBU to be furious about this, but YABU not to have done anything at the time. She would've got the lot back, dumped on her table. Incredibly rude.

The words Yours, I think? come to my mind.

Seriously? How rude!

katienana Tue 29-Mar-16 17:09:14

I predict a unanimous YANBU! How entitled can you get!

ItsLikeRainOnYourWeddingDay Tue 29-Mar-16 17:10:05

Why didn't you move it back! Jesus Christ hmm

JolieMadame Tue 29-Mar-16 17:10:12

Ohhh so rude.

I'd have said "excuse me, what are you doing? The dirty crockery goes over there ---->"

Cheeky bitch.

oldlaundbooth Tue 29-Mar-16 17:10:13

Your too British.

You should have said 'What in God's name do you think you are doing, woman?'

OK, so supposed the OP returned the tray to the original table, only for it to come back - what next, a food fight?

Chinesealan Tue 29-Mar-16 17:11:49

I'm amazed all you did was give her a look. I am quiet but I would have told her to remove it. If she hadn't, I'd have dumped it carelessly all over her table.
When you say your table do you mean there were 2 of you at a 4 person table? If so she might have taken the empty section to be a suitable place to dump her stuff.

DangerMouth Tue 29-Mar-16 17:12:50

shock no wat

oldlaundbooth Tue 29-Mar-16 17:12:51

You're - sorry, long day.

Vintage45 Tue 29-Mar-16 17:14:04

Why didn't you just say not to at the time?

DangerMouth Tue 29-Mar-16 17:14:15

Sorry dd2 just kicked me in the stomach with her pudgy 6 month strong legs. I meant no way!

Jenijena Tue 29-Mar-16 17:14:30

I was in the same place as you at the same time. I would have kicked up a huge fuss, but can imagine being too wtf to respond appropriately...

GraysAnalogy Tue 29-Mar-16 17:14:47

Reading stuff like this gives me rage, I wish I could swap bodies with the posters who can't bring themselves to open their mouths in situations like this

Dollybird99 Tue 29-Mar-16 17:14:56

I would have tipped the lot over her head and then stamped on her foot for good measure. That would have given me the RAGE............

Dollybird99 Tue 29-Mar-16 17:16:37

And then I might have actually punched her in the face, or stabbed her with a blunt knife...jeeeesus.

Sorry...bit hormonal today (and hangry).....
