A Brother Asked His Sister and Her Baby to Leave a Fancy Dinner & His Reasoning Actually Makes Sense

Date:

On the surface, it sounds awful to kick your breastfeeding sister out of a restaurant. But listen to this Reddit user. He went to the “AITA” forum to share his story, and so many people are taking his side in this situation.

The user explained that he planned to woo his girlfriend Jessy at a family dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant. The place, he said, is very luxurious, has a strict dress code and does not allow children under the age of 14. He booked 10 months in advance and noted his credit card for 12 people. In the meantime, he proposed to Jessy – and she got pregnant. They decided to use their fancy dinner to deliver the exciting news they were expecting.

“Dinner was yesterday,” he wrote. “My sister Emily decided to bring my nephew Kit, who is still breastfed and currently teething (he is 6 months old). So instead of celebrating Jessy’s pregnancy, a lot of people felt uncomfortable because my cousin was crying almost constantly and at one point the owner of the restaurant asked us to leave because children weren’t allowed and my cousin was disturbing other guests.”

The Reddit user felt compelled to ask his sister to leave the restaurant. The two got into a heated conversation because his sister didn’t seem to want to leave, and he reminded her that she hadn’t asked if she could take Kit to the restaurant. “She has tried to defend herself by saying he is young but her boyfriend who is also the father could have stayed with Kit as he finishes work at 4am,” he wrote. “I also told Emily how disappointed I was with what she did when she ruined dinner by taking Kit to a place not made for children.”

Later that night, his mother and aunt called him to tell him that he was an asshole and that he should apologize. Jessy, meanwhile, is upset that the dinner didn’t go according to plan and the fussy baby distracted from the occasion. “So AITA?” he asked.

A lot of people took to the comment section and said they thought his sister was wrong here. Reactions got quite heated. “You’re a huge asshole if you take kids to a fun place designed to be an experience not meant for kids,” one wrote. “Not only are you potentially making your evening difficult, you’re ruining an expensive and often rare experience for dozens of others. She was an AH when she decided to take a baby to a fancy dinner. OP is NTA.”

Another added: “Your selfish sister ruined the evening not just for your party but for all the diners at a high end restaurant because she thought she was special and the rules didn’t apply to her little darling. Plus, you paid to have your nearest and dearest there to make a big happy announcement that was overshadowed by the noise she was making. If I understand correctly, the only way to avoid having your entire party thrown out and maybe banned was to let her leave immediately.”

Some parents jumped in to tell them they are additional be careful in these kinds of situations when it comes to their own children. “I have kids. Some places aren’t kid friendly. I don’t take my kids there,” one user wrote. “…It’s not all about being a parent, and having a teething baby doesn’t mean you have an excuse to force others to let your child romp in an adults-only space. I doubt she would try to take her baby with her just because she’s breastfeeding.”

What do you think? What should the OP have done in this situation?
