Picture this: you're out for a rare weekday brunch with your partner, trying to enjoy some quality time together. But there's a catch - you're seated next to a woman and a toddler who's watching something on an iPad with the volume turned up to 100%. The annoying noises make it impossible for you to have a conversation, and the woman seems to be ignoring the toddler completely. 😩 What would you do in this situation? Would you ask her to turn the volume down? Well, that's exactly what our protagonist did, and the woman's reaction left her wondering if she was in the wrong. 🤔 Let's dive into this brunch-time dilemma! 🍳

Brunch Battle: Toddler vs. Volume 🥞📢

Our protagonist was out for a rare weekday brunch with her partner when they found themselves seated next to a woman and a toddler with an iPad on full blast. The annoying noises made it impossible for them to have a conversation, and the woman seemed to be ignoring the toddler completely. 😣 After the toddler threw food and some landed on our protagonist, she took the opportunity to ask the woman to turn the volume down a bit. The woman reacted with annoyance and packed up their food to go, saying the brunch was ruined. 🙄 Our protagonist later discussed the situation with her sister, who said she was in the wrong for making the woman feel unwelcome in a public place. 🤷‍♀️ Now, our protagonist is left wondering if she was in the wrong or if her request was reasonable. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🌐
