I have nc'd for this as I am really identifiable on my normal nn.

My FB has been awash the last two days with pictures of a young baby with burns all down his/her leg.

It appears s/he has pulled a bowl of scolding custard over itself in the local chain pub. AIBU unreasonable and a bitch or is it the parents faults?

There's loads of shares, talk of solicitors, the chef being sacked and the local paper now have hold of the story.

But I mean food is hot isn't it? If that was me I'd be blaming myself accidents happen. Horrible as it may be I just feel sorry for the staff the amount of vitriol going on.

Once the staff have served the food it is not their responsibility to prevent children from touching it - YANBU fucking compo chasers drive me mad!!!

Aside from whether it is appropriate for the parents to be sharing this all over FB I would not expect to be served custard so hot that it would scald and burn skin if spilt. Assume it must have been heated in a microwave.

I would not expect my good to be served to me luke warm. I eat hot food at home and if I'm paying for it I want my food hot then too. Warm food makes me shudder.

I haven't posted it to have a go at the parents. My own DD escaped and grabbed the oven grill when she was about two I was distraught but accidents happen and it was my own fault.

I was honestly feeling like a right cow with everyone sympathising and blaming the pub.

I'm sure many people will have the same reservations as you but find it easier all round to join in the outrage.

Poor baby.

Lots of things are served to the table in restaurants hot enough to burn. Coffee, sizzling chilli dishes, boiling water in a pot for tea ect. It's not the chef or the restaurant's fault.

I guess they're lashing out and looking for someone to blame though and people are whipping them up. Dare i say this is another example of these days 'living your life via social media' things.

Tricky one - the custard shouldn't have been served scalding temperature, that's dangerous to anyone. If it was me would i want someone sacked? - no. Would i blame myself - for my child pulling it down on themself yes, to an extent. But then surely the custard would have been steaming or even bubbling as an indicator it was too hot.

thats not helped at all is it- no, in my opinion YANBU, accidents happen and this is a six of one, half a dozen of another "blame" incident
