How do you deal with judgy strangers? I was out for a pub lunch last weekend and some kids were running around the spacious pub and being just a little bit noisy (as kids are) and a group of four at a nearby table straight up told the mother to "Deal with them and shut them up because I didn't come here to be bothered by kids". I was shocked. I mean it's a family friendly pub on a Saturday lunchtime!! Anyway, how do you (calmly) deal with that kind of situation?
I hate confronting people in general! However, if I had the guts to say anything it might have been to use some of your words in your post. "It's a family pub on a Saturday lunchtime. What did you expect? There are other places you could have chosen if you wanted quiet". Something to that effect maybe.
