Would you like to have an occasional gala time with your friend while there’s a screaming baby right next to you?
An internet user asked, “Am I a jerk for not wanting to be near a screaming baby while having drinks?”. Here’s the full story for your context.
The Original Poster(OP) (27F) and a friend of hers (27F) went to happy hour on Thursday at a brewery for drinks. They got a table and as they walked up, there was a baby at the next table.
The Baby Was Doing What?
The baby was eating some mac and cheese and just yelling “awawawa”, over and over in the minute they were near the baby. He seemed happy, but OP doesn’t like babies yelling, crying, or really making noise.
“It really bothers me.”, says OP.
OP asked her friend if she wanted to move tables and OP told her she didn’t want to be near a yelling baby.
Her friend said no, she thought the baby was cute and funny. “She said happy babies making a noise like that is the best.”, says OP.
What Happened Next
OP told her she’d really like to move, and also expressed that babies shouldn’t be there. OP knew if this baby kept yelling, she wasn’t going to enjoy herself.
OP’s friend said, “I don’t know why it bothers you so much”. She also told OP to not be a jerk, it’s just a happy baby.
What Does OP Say?
“I started gathering my things and told her I was leaving.I thought she was being very inconsiderate of how I felt, so I just left. Am I the jerk?”, says OP.
You Made Your Choice, That’s It!
“Not the jerk. I wouldn’t want to be near a screaming baby, either. You have choices and you made one.”
No Jerks Here
“No jerks here. It’s fine if you don’t want to sit there. It’s fine that she didn’t want to move.
Also, looks like this was a toddler, not a baby. Babies don’t eat mac and cheese.
For the record, babies and toddlers – like all other people – make noise.”
No One Was At Fault
“No jerks here. She doesn’t care about the noises a toddler makes and you do. You couldn’t come to an agreement. If your intentions are to be surrounded by only adults and drink liquor I’d meet her at a bar as most if not all breweries are family friendly.”
It’s A Brewery, Not A Bar
“You’re the jerk, mostly for ‘expressing that babies shouldn’t be here.’ It’s a brewery, not a bar. Almost all breweries I’ve ever seen are family-friendly.”
Your Tolerance Levels Are Ridiculously Low
“You’re the jerk. There was no screaming baby in your story. There was simply a baby babbling. Your tolerance levels are ridiculously low. Your friend should have just moved tables.
It’s not a big deal 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.”
