Screaming One Year Old Spurs Mother's Day Melee At Restaurant

I'm not overstating the melee part. This was like a ballroom blitz.

About 10 Toledo Police units responded to the melee with an estimated 15 people involved inside the restaurant. Five people were arrested and six people were hurt, including four who were taken to hospitals for minor injuries.

The sergeant said witnesses told him Christine Lewandowski, 56, repeatedly asked Sylvia Harris, 24, of Toledo to quiet her 1-year-old child, who was sitting in a high chair and screaming.

When the infant continued to scream, Ms. Lewandowski shouted at the baby to “shut up,” Sergeant Kikolski said.

That’s when Ms. Harris lunged at Ms. Lewandowski and began punching the woman, the sergeant said.

Ten minutes of chair-throwing mayhem.

Two points:

People really shouldn't behave as if their outing to Denny's or Ihop is a once-in-a-lifetime magical experience to be treasured forever, and thus be terribly angry if the mean is marred by a noisy kid.

But seriously, Moms and Dads with misbehaving kids? Take 'em outside until they calm down. And if they don't, get everything to go.

Sure, it's a pain in the ass. Sure, it mars your magical Red Lobster experience. But the fact that you're obligated by the laws of God and man to put up with the screaming of your little monster doesn't mean the rest of us have somehow been drafted into doing the same.
