Woman, you have a lap... use it!

Of course, this did happen in the US, so I might be assuming way too much here.

A Starbucks spokesperson said the company apologized to the family and wants its customers to be treated with "dignity and respect," according to KUSA.

And I don't want to be treated to your child's dirty ass where I'm getting food or drink.

From the fuller, linked article:

"As a mother, you have to do what you have to do. Wherever you have to do it," Burgos said.

Burgos noticed there was no changing table at the Denver Starbucks on the 7900 block of East 49th Avenue so she changed her son's diaper in the seating area.

"I just kind of wiped him off, cleaned him off as quickly as I could," Burgos said.

Alex Burgos says a Starbucks employee tossed his wife a rag and spoke to her in a "demeaning" tone.

"He said make sure to wipe the seat when you're done," he said. "They started talking amongst themselves and laughing about it."


Do what you have to do?!  I suppose your car was out of the question.

Hey lady, not on a public dining table.  Were you born in a farking barn?

I changed my son in a restroom once on the sink. I had a changing pad and whatnot. No mess, and asked the manager if there is a table in the ladies room. There was. I explained it's the new millennium and sometimes dads will change diapers. Next time I went there, a table was in place. Too bad my son was potty trained by then or I'd be able to give it some sort of review.

Mom was wrong and that's about the long and short of it. There's a sink in the bathroom if nothing else. Is changing a diaper in a car too difficult (unless she didn't come to Starbucks in one)?

Fark any restaurant that doesn't have a changing table.

No, I think your safe in assuming that nearly everyone has a lap.

Uh...from the headline, it sounds like the Starbucks employees were being anything but dumbasses. The baby gets a pass as well, I suppose.

Flying with the boy when he was in diapers and the plane had no table. Changed him on the toilet seat - not easy.

Mommy culture has gotten out of hand. Starbucks is a luxury, not a right. And if you're cleaning your kids feces on a table most people eat off, for God's sake Lysol it!

DEAR CONSUMERIST:

I AM OUTRAGED THAT MY INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR WAS IDENTIFIED AS SUCH.  THIS WILL NOT STAND.

OMG.

Take your kid to the bathroom to change it.

You probably whipped out a diaper pad to change them on the table.

Use the damn thing on the bathroom floor you silly bint.

//Changed many a diaper in restrooms without a changing table.
 
2013-05-20 02:50:20 PM
I farking hate it when mothers change their babies in dining areas of restaurants because people who do so often just leave the dirty diaper on the table instead of waking the 10 ft to throw it away.
 
2013-05-20 02:50:33 PM
KIND OF off-topic but....every time a woman being handcuffed says the usual "Be careful, officer, I"m pregnant"...well, ok, but once the SOP preg-test comes back negative they should be prosecuted (full trial, mind you) for an additional criminal misdemeanor of providing false information to the police.

Imagine how people survived 600 years ago here with no Starbucks, and no changing tables.

Everyone does not care about your kid as much as you do.

CSB POWERS ACTIVATE!

Some years ago I was at the dept of vital statistics trying to get a birth certificate. Some woman changed her baby's diaper acros from me in the waiting area. It smelled like that baby had been eating other people's shiat for days and the resting shiat was so horrendous that it cleared half the room. That dumb biatch then went on to toss that foul ass diaper in the trash can in the room.

I left and decided to come back the following day to pick up the doc.

At first by "lousy" I thought you meant "bad", but now I think you mean that you consider Starbucks customers self-entitled who think that shelling out a lot of money for coffee means they have extra rights.  I've been to Starbucks many times and I've never even paid $5 for a cup.  I can coexist with kids (though allowing your kids to have Happy Scream Run Time for 45 minutes is jerky) or else leave.  I can't coexist with people who smear their baby's feces on a table and then walk away for the next unsuspecting customer to come into contact with.  That's way over the line.  That ought to be a crime.  If someone really has to change their kid, they can go do it in their car and smear the feces there.

But it doesn't sound like you're the kind of person who does that.
 
2013-05-20 02:55:09 PM
Also, don't change a diaper in the middle of a restaurant in the first place.

if you're genius enough to pay $10.00 for a cup of joe you shouldn't be responsible for the welfare of a child.

Annoying customers and bad customer service...I call it a wash.

\I am a leaf on the wind...
 
2013-05-20 02:56:42 PM
If I am out for more time than the kid can last without a diaper change, then I have all of my stuff with me, including a folding changing pad. Do I like putting her on the floor to change a diaper? No.

But I am also not a disgusting beast that would change a shiatty diaper where other people are eating and drinking.

Starbucks farks up my diaper, too.

They left the kid at home with a sitter who washed the cloth diapers out by hand in the toilet, as nature intended.

This couple will undoubtedly sue for whatever bullsh*t they can think of.

Well back in the 60s you just put the baby in a crib and had the next door neighbor 10 year old kid come check on it once in awhile.

Seriously though what Starbucks doesn't have a baby changing station in this age & day? I blame the manager.
 
2013-05-20 02:59:18 PM
i sympathize wit the family, but its a health consideration. likewise if the cafe had a clogged toilet that you could not use, would not give anyone an excuse to take a dump in the middle of the eating area.

improvise with what you have, and with consideration to others. should have used the sink and not be self entitled assholes about it.
 
2013-05-20 02:59:21 PM
I'd like to go out on a limb as a mother and say that I'm fairly positive the mother didn't relish changing her baby on a coffeetable (and let's be honest, nobody is sitting down to a three course meal at starbucks), because of people who assume they're doing it just to be an asshole and not out of necessity.  And while it's not the greatest place to change a child and her reaction was MOST ASSUREDLY over the top, throwing a dirty rag at her and telling her to clean up (which is assholishly assuming with no evidence that she wouldn't) and then laughing at her IS a dick move.  There's no way around it.  Welcome to real life...where more than one person can be the jerk in the story.
 
2013-05-20 02:59:25 PM
umm...  she used the SEAT, not the table.  heck, half the people at starbucks probably don't wipe properly anyways, so what's the difference?

So from what I understand:

It's reprehensible to breastfeed a child in public.
It's totally cool to change a shiatty diaper in public.

I think OregonVet was referring to the Fark Child-Hater Brigade. The people who complain "I paid for a nice meal/airplane seat and I shouldn't have to put up with your crotch-spawn" anytime children in public are mentioned.
 
2013-05-20 03:01:07 PM
If you are changing a diaper in the dining or kitchen areas of a restaurant you are in the wrong.  End of story.
 
2013-05-20 03:01:28 PM
I'm a dad. I've dealt with poop in public.

Take the kid to the bathroom. First off, that's where the sink is, and the sink can be very necessary after a diaper change. Hell, that's first, second, third... all the way down to 28th. After that, there's the whole "consideration of others" aspect.

But every time the diaper comes off, it's a bit of a mystery. You can't predict consistency, aroma, or explosiveness. Sometimes it's tar, other times it's applesauce. Sometimes it has almost no aroma, other times it would make a New Orleans wino retch from three blocks away.

But, seriously- that's where the sink is, you foul people.

They used the seat like this broad did and the dad kicked the shiat out of the punks.

This also happen in Denver, a bit of a hipster-snobbish town in some places. The fact that invloved a Denver Barista and most likely some Hipster Prius driving entitled Parents, were lucking this cause some Pretentious Super Storm!

Oh ffs, how many times have you changed your kid with no regard for the people around you? They deserved to have rag thrown at them. Starbucks shouldn't have to clean that up.
