On the evening of the torch ceremony whilst it was pouring with rain i decided to take my baby in for some supper. It took us a good couple of minutes to take our wet coats off and my daughter wanted to take her wellies off too. I had decided want i fancied from the seemingly appetising menu and went to order. My just walking daughter toddled off slowly back to our very close table to get her wellies. The man behind the counter told me crossly that i should keep my child under control and went on to explain that hot food was being constantly brought out to tables etc. Although i didn't like his tone or the words he chose to use i understood what he was explaining, even if it was in an aggressive manor. I continued to place my order and reach for my purse to pay when my daughter decided to begin another walk back to our table. I quickly responded by holding her hand and explaining that the man had asked her to stay next to mummy. While i was speaking with her the man began to shout at me, telling me that he had already told me once to keep my child under control and how dangerous the restaurant was for children. (i cannot emphasize enough that my daughter was calm and slow in her walk and in no way 'out of control' and was never any more than three steps away from me.) I tried to reiterate that i had just spoken with her but he couldn't hear me talking as he was shouting so loudly at me. I just felt like crying but was trying to keep it together for my baby. I told him i wouldn't be ordering anymore and that he was a horrible man. I took my daughter back to the table to get our wet coats back on and unfortunately this seemed to take a lifetime as everything stuck to us. i just wanted to cry, i was shaking. The man then came to our table and began shouting at me asking why i thought he was horrible. I told him that it was because he was shouting at me and attacking me in front of my child. At that point a waitress came over and told him to leave me alone and he eventually did. This man verbally attacked me. I had a broken leg, a baby in a sling who was soaked through and i was visibly upset and shaken by his attack. In my opinion this man does not deserve customers!
