Ahh maybe Im being totally over sensitive, but having a few problems with my son i.e he wont stop fucking crying the whole time. Anyway, mum takes me for lunch (where we thought was child friendly) to cheer me up. 1, no baby changing, so had to do it on my lap 2, wouldnt heat his dinner, so had to have it cold 3, wouldnt heat his milk, so the forula didnt mix properly so couldn't give it to him. Against company policy to heat baby stuff.
Soooo, after about half hour, my son (7 months) had had his cold lunch and was crying for a bottle. We were half waythrough ours and had already paid so we decided to eat up. Then manager comes over, says there has been a complaint about son crying. Well yeah you stupid fuck, your 'policy' says he cant have his milk heated. So we had to leave! Im so upset, Im stressed anyway cuz of hearing his whinging all day without wasting money on a very rare lunch and being asked to leave by some pretentious shit in a pink shirt. Excuse my language.
I'm sorry you feel so stressed. Perhaps you could check the baby-friendliness of the venue next time you go out? Most pubs are not going to be happy about a baby crying constantly at lunchtime, and you don't really have to be in a licensed place to have a meal.
They didnt have any jugs spare apparently, and there were loads of toddlers in there so we assumed all was ok. It was only after we had ordered and paid that I discovered lack of facilities. So we basically had paid, and had food in front of us before he kicked off.
A lot of places now won't heat up baby food/bottles etc so I am surprised you didn't plan for this just in case they wouldn't. When DS was that age I would always take out a small thermos of hot water for such occasions. On an occasion where I did forget I would just ask for a pot of tea and ask for them to put the tea bag on the side and said it was because I like it weak. I never mentioned it was to heat up baby stuff so they were none the wiser and didn't decline.
If so write to the head office - say that you were asked to leave, ham it up about your humiliation, upset, distress etc and you will probably get compensation vouchers -you can return in the future minus screaming infant.
Where I work we don't use jugs so it is likely they may not have had any. In future if there are no jugs but they are happy to let you have hot water at the table (many places aren't in case someone knocks it over) you could ask for a plastic cup or plastic container to put the water in.
Leave OP alone. She said she gets out rarely, so she might not be as prepared as others who get out more often!
You'll know better next time, OP. I feel your pain, I'm so glad my children are older and over that awkward stage.
The policies in that pub seem way over the top, I doubt if the barman would have given the OP a jug of boiling water. And the clientele sound like complete knobs, choose your venues more carefully next time.
Once you get LO asleep, why not hit a cushion and pretend it's the barman and the person that complained about your crying baby- then relax and have a glass of wine.
