What would you do in this situation?
Ifyou think saying something will have any effect on the situation, watch this:
While the scenario is different, it’s a baby shrieking in distress as opposed to a toddler shrieking for the sheer fun of it, the surrounding diners don’t appear to be bothered by the disruption.
Saying something to the parents never works. Never. It’s a recipe for even more drama. I’ve concluded that the only option is to ask the manager to move you to a table farther away, if possible. The silent act of having your entire meal packed up and moved does speak volumes that you do not prefer to be in close proximity to that much noise, distraction and chaos.
