An older woman overstepped her boundaries by critiquing his wiping style and trying to dress the baby. The father snapped and called her a creep. While some bystanders thought he overreacted, the father feels bad for his response. He took to the 'Am I the A**hole' subreddit to ask if he was wrong for his actions.

Man shamed for changing baby in Starbucks, calls woman a creep 😱

A father is feeling guilty after he called an older woman a creep for trying to help him change his baby at a Starbucks. The father was shopping alone with his 3-month-old twins when one of them had a major diaper blowout. With no changing tables in the men's room or family bathroom, the father asked a Starbucks barista if he could change his baby on one of the tables in the back.

While changing his daughter, an older woman approached him and started critiquing his diaper-changing skills, even going so far as to try to dress the baby herself. The father became upset and called her a creep, causing the woman to cry. While some bystanders felt that the man overreacted, others sympathized with his situation. Despite this, the father feels guilty for snapping at the woman and wondering if he was in the wrong. What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
