We know our pets

It started with uncontrolled puppy and acquired even worse

Expensive Overlook MANNERS: A mate and I have been savoring brunch outdoors at a great restaurant when a pair with a large doggy and a child in a stroller were being seated at a close by table.

I saved silent as the pair obliviously allowed the pet dog to “visit” other tables, dragging its extensive leash driving it. I held silent when the couple at last grabbed the leash but still authorized the canine to wander close to, producing a trip hazard for any individual walking by. I figured that with a pet dog and a little one, these men and women ended up accomplishing the best they could.

Even so, I’m ashamed to say that I also retained silent when — soon after they finished eating, but prior to the table was cleared — they proceeded to transform the baby’s diaper on the table. They then acquired up and still left, leaving the filthy diaper on the desk.

This would have been revolting at any time, but even much more so for the duration of a wellness disaster. The most I could do was commiserate with the busboy and depart a substantial idea, but really should I have stated one thing to the pair at the time?
