MANY people have felt the pain of being sat next to a screaming baby when you are out in public.

However, one woman decided to take matters into her own hands after a wailing child threatened to ruin her time at a fancy restaurant. 

The woman, who is a mum herself, had decided to have the first date night with her husband following the birth of their second child. 

After arranging for a babysitter, she booked them into a "very nice fancy restaurant".

But their special night soon turned sour when a baby started crying next to her minutes after they arrived. 

Talking to Reddit, she explained: "At first, it was fine but after a few minutes, the baby started crying.

“They tried to comfort it, but every time it seemed they had managed to make it sleep, it woke up crying again.

"We just wanted to leave but we had already ordered so we decided to ask the waiter if we could change tables to sit at the other end of the restaurant.

“He was super nice and quickly asked another waiter to help him set up the new table for us.

"The couple with the baby overheard what we said to the waiter and the mum got upset and called me an a******.

“She went on and on saying that I probably don’t have kids (I have 2), and that babies are also people and we should just accept that babies can be loud and cry and there's nothing she could do about it."

The woman said she was “annoyed” by the mum’s comments, and told her she should have taken her child home as soon as they started crying. 

She continued: "I didn't want to start a fight or anything but I got really annoyed by her attitude, so I told her that she could actually do something about the crying. 

“She could take her baby home so it can properly sleep and then let everyone else there enjoy their meals.

"She kept saying stuff but I just ignored her, went to our new table and tried to have a nice dinner (although we could still hear the crying baby but at least it was not right next to us).

"This morning I told my sister what happened and she said she agrees that I might have been an a**hole. 

“She said I shouldn't have said to the waiter that we wanted to move because of the baby and I shouldn't have said what I said to the mum."

Many people were quick to comment and most were in support of the woman.

Another added: “I agree here. I have a newborn. And believe me, when I get an opportunity, I am getting a sitter and going to a place where kids can’t go.”
