Do we know it was a BM? I watched it twice and it didn't say.

I said she was alone, as in "on her own with 3 kids"

If the baby pooped, you are gonna smell it no matter what. It will be quicker to change it then to have her sit in it, there by ending the issue totally.

Did anyone actually watch the video?

Not the brightest move but far from the crime of the century like you all are acting like it is.

among a very busy noon lunch time crowd. And, other patrons could see the diaper change well enough to both text the management and get up and tell the owners.

So, it obviously the diaper change wasn't as quietly, quickly and discreetly as Mom though it was.

That's a huge exaggeration. It's as much an issue of class and respect as it is sanitation.

If one wants to have filthy habits that's their prerogative ... but the moment one steps into the public, their filth becomes everybody's problem.

Not only should they have kicked her out, they should have banned her from ever coming back. She should also go into some national registry and not be allowed in any restaurants at all until her kids are out of diapers. GROSS!

wow, you all are a riot. I dont have filthy habits, upper middle class american. People are strange about this stuff. Now if she had the baby bare assed on a table I would be like...geezze someone get the hand sanitizer. But a tiny infant, on a chair, on a pad with a mom who was likely very frazzled trying to manage her kids and her new baby. Cut her some slack.

I disagree with your first point, but agree with your second. Many a parent has changed a babies diaper before changing tables became common, and they didn't have the nerve to do it inside a restaurant, much less an eating surface.
So while it would be nice for a restaurant to have one, not all bathrooms are designed or can accommodate one.

The worst part of this story is how this woman decided to make a case out of it by filing a complaint with the BBB and did a news story about it. You can tell she still thinks she didn't do anything wrong and was only thinking of her needs, not that of anyone else, or the health risk it poses.
