Some people are rude for absolutely no reason.
Intervention from random people out in the public is never okay. No one should be allowed to put their nose in other peoples business as it comes off as not only rude but annoying and people do not take it as a sign of appreciation. Obviously, you would mind someone else ruining your mood while you’re out with your family or friends. No one should be allowed that as it comes off as offensive and irritating. But sometimes when someone is being treated absolutely bad by the people they’re out with, sometimes the human side of empathy kicks in and we try and feel bad for the person being treated badly so, Intervening then makes some sense as you’re helping someone out who is being mistreated. It sends a clear message to their friends and family so they at least feel as if they need to do better.
This woman was out with her boyfriend and they having food at a restaurant and a couple of seats away there was an old couple sitting with their son and daughter in law.
The woman was trying to calm her baby down and everyone was looking at her as if she was a clown. Her husband started ridiculing her until OP had enough and she wanted to take things in her own hand while her boyfriend was trying to calm her down.
The moment came to an eruption when OP walked to the table and confronted the family who was being rude to the woman when she was doing something extremely normal. Everyone looked at the OP but stayed silent. The woman continued doing what she was doing but OP’s boyfriend seemed to be a little upset by the scene created by her.
Regarding this story, this is what the Reddit community had to say.
OP got praise for what she did. The Reddit community somewhat sided with OP regarding the actions she took.
Some people criticised her boyfriend for not taking her side and rightfully so, he should’ve supported OP when she was doing the right thing. ”Creating a scene” or not, he should’ve been mature about this.
People genuinely praised OP for her action. Pointing out that if someone is in the need of help, you shouldn’t care about the backdrop more than the person.
Again people thanked her and criticized her boyfriend further for being a meanie.
I personally think she did the right thing. People usually forget the concept of empathy and they don’t give a heck about how the other person might feel. It’s really important for us to step inside the shoes of other people and help them accordingly. OP went out of her way to help the mother while being in a busy place which is an amazing humanistic expession. People need to calm down with their judgements and give into care and love for the needy and a voice for the needy and helpless. With that said, Let us know your thoughts and opinions on this story.
