I think I want to start a new trend for my blog. I’m thinking I’d like to post a: WHAT WOULD YOU DO WEDNESDAY blog every single Wednesday? I’ll start with this one and see how it is received.
First What Would You Do Wednesday question scenario is:
We were out to dinner Monday night, at let’s call it a mid-upscale restaurant. I was in my clothes that I flew in, which was a cozy sweatshirt, nice dark wash jeans with some of my fave, yet super snazzy sneakers. Not normally how I would dress to go to dinner at this place, but I was already what my family calls “altitude drunk” and didn’t think to pull some nicer clothes out of the suitcase in our SUV. The good news is they didn’t send me home when I arrived at the restaurant in my flying state, even though some people go to this place in a suit jacket, I wasn’t asked to leave in my get up, it’s that sort of place. Mid-upscale. Now, let’s say you’re seated at your table enjoying a cocktail, settling in. The table directly beside you has two kids at it. One is probably fourteen, and the other is most likely eleven. The eleven year old pulls out an iPad while waiting for desert to arrive and turns it on, not only lighting up the beautiful, dimly lite room with the blue light of his device, but also with the volume up quite high. The parents are cozy on the banquette side by side chatting, the sister is looking at the device with her younger brother. The four of them are quite happy. Content, enjoying dinner in their private dining room.
What do you do?
a) Call over the manager and ask them to deal with the inappropriate behavior of your dining neighbors?
b) Ask the parents to have the child turn off their device?
c) Ask the child directly to turn of his device?
d) Say nothing and be upset about the disruption to your lovely, somewhat expensive meal out?
I really want to know what you would do, you share your answer with me either via my Twitter, or let me know here on the comment page! This could be fun. I hope lots of you participate! Cannot wait to hear what you all would have done.
Now, let’s hope I remember to keep doing this every single Wednesday. Fingers crossed!
