A woman and her friend decided to unwind at a brewery during a Thursday evening happy hour. However, little did she know that relaxation would be the last thing she would experience.
Baby at the Brewery
The two women expected to attend the brewery in the sole company of adults. However, to their surprise, they were seated next to a baby and its parents.
The woman’s heart dropped instantly when she realized she and her friend would be sharing the evening with a baby. She did not appreciate babies and the variety of sounds that they make.
The Unwanted Sound
To the woman’s displeasure, the baby was happily devouring mac and cheese while repeatedly emitting a series of “awawawa” sounds. “He seemed happy, but I don’t like babies yelling, crying, or really making noise”, explained the woman. “It really bothers me.”
The woman quickly realized that a change had to be made. She did not pay to relax in an adult environment such as a brewery, only to feel like she was hanging around a noisy nursery.
Proposing a Change
The woman, frustrated by the baby’s noises, promptly suggested to her friend that they relocate to a different table. She expressed her discomfort with the situation and her belief that babies shouldn’t be in such places if they’re going to make a lot of noise.
Difference of Opinion
However, the woman’s companion had a contrasting view. “She says no, she thought the baby was cute and funny”, recounted the woman. “She said happy babies making a noise like that is the best.”
A conflict arose between the two friends. The woman insisted that they had to move if she was going to enjoy her relaxing evening. In response, her friend criticized her reaction, questioning why the noise bothered her so much and labeling her as inconsiderate.
A Sudden Departure
Feeling unheard and misunderstood, the friend who disliked the baby’s noise decided to take action. She began gathering her belongings, firmly believing that her feelings and preferences were not being respected. She concluded that leaving the brewery was the best course of action given the circumstances, and promptly stormed out.
An Unresolved Disagreement
The departure left an unresolved disagreement between the two friends. One believed the baby’s noise was endearing and harmless, while the other found it intolerable and was disappointed by what she perceived as a lack of consideration for her feelings.
A Potential Overreaction
Despite her strong feelings that babies are annoying and that her friend did not respect her feelings, the woman began to feel that she may have overreacted. She wondered whether she could have reiterated her desire to move, as opposed to storming out of the brewery prematurely.
Was She Wrong?
In light of this situation, the woman was left seeking advice online, curious as to whether her reaction was justified or if there might have been a more considerate way to handle the disagreement. Some people agreed with the woman; “I wouldn’t want to be near a screaming baby, either”, someone commented. “You have choices and you made one.”
Family Friendly Brewery
However, some people contested the woman, explaining to her that breweries didn’t have to accommodate adults only. “A lot of breweries can be family-friendly”, one reader wrote. “Most of the ones in my town are. Also people in general make noise. Not just babies.”
A Complete Overreaction
Most people felt that the woman had overreacted. “There was no screaming baby in your story”, one commenter wrote. “There was simply a baby babbling. Your tolerance levels are ridiculously low. Your friend should have just moved tables, but you up and leaving is weird and if I had been your friend, I would probably never make plans with you again and would think you were nuts.”
