Dear Abby tackles fast food baby diaper change
This week America’s favorite advice giver weighs in on changing a baby diaper on a fast food restaurant table.
“Dear Abby” writes “cafe crazy,” a “restaurant” owner in a small town.
[O]ne of our servers had come into the kitchen and announced that they’d need extra sanitizer on table 29 because a mother was changing her baby on it!
What has happened in our society that people don’t understand that this is unsanitary and rude? Had I been there, I don’t know that I could have kept a civil tongue, and I feel like people today regard my disgust as unreasonable. Is there something I’m missing here?
And how does Abby respond?
DEAR “CRAZY”: I don’t know who you have been talking to, but your disgust is not “unreasonable.” What that mother was missing was common sense and courtesy for those around her.
