Just wanted to say a massive congrats to all the bfps I've missed! I've been off the boards for a couple of days as we took the boys away.
We went to Drusillas, a wonderful zoo/play park and had a fab time, the boys loved it! We decided to get a cheap hotel room and stay the nit and drive home the next day. Anyway, after a fab day, we decided to go to dinner. We were recommended a lovely child friendly pub round the corner from the hotel.
It was quite empty when we got there, just one other table of four eating. We ordered our food. And then something I thought was a little odd occurred to me. The waitress serving us kept coming over and shhhh-ing ds2 because he was starting to get whingey. I remember thinking was she being nice or was she getting pissed with him, I couldn't quite work it out. Then every time she came back to our table, she kept straightening the paper table cloth out that he was messing up. I was thinking just leave it alone he is 18mo old for goodness sake. Again, I couldn't quite out my finger on whether she was just doing her job or getting annoyed.
Finally after 30 mins our food arrive.
But, by this time ds2 was too agitated and over hungry to eat. When he started getting a little over noisy I took him to the bathroom. The restaurant had filled up a little by this point and the other customers didn't seem to mind, some were even trying to make him smile and pull faces at him, others were saying 'no wonder he's hungry waiting for his food'.
I took him back to the table a little more contented but he started moaning again so he drank some juice from my glass which kept him occupied, mine and dh's meal was still untouched as he was looking after ds1.
At this point, the waitress came back over and gave me this fake sum pathetic look. She had distracted Ds so he started getting noisy again. I said to her 'he's got over hungry and upset now'. I couldn't believe my ears when she said 'well, it's just we do have to consider the other guests or...........' OMG i could have swore at her. Everyone in the restaurant went silent and looked at us. I said fine we are leaving. Dh looked at me like oh sh*t! I stood up and started frantically stuffing everything in my change bag with then a screaming ds2. I could feel everyone watching and my eyes welling up. Waitress looked shell shocked and startd saying 'oh you don't have to leave' 'I didn't mean you to leave' and dh said lets stay. I replied how can we stay after she has created a scene like this.
I'm not sure how I got out of there but I don't even remember waking out. After I'd gone, dh said she kept saying 'oh I didn't mean you to keave' and he was like well that's what you implied. She was shaking apparently and had to get her colleague to stand with her. She asked dh if he wanted to food bagged up, he replied no, just the children's food as they are so hungry now and haven't been given the chanvpce to eat, and the only reason I'm paying is because of that otherwise we would be walking out of here. He asked her if any other customers had complained and she said no!! At the end of it all, she even had the cheek to say to dh 'oh but was everything ok?'. It ruined our evening so much we ended up driving home . Today, I'm going to ring their head office and complain, seriously complain. Now I have gathered myself back together I can do so properly.
Anyway thanks for the rant, I needed to get that off my chest!
As for me, my temp was still up this morn so I decided to poas, well, as I was doing so, the spotting arrived. So I guess I'll be moving onto July. I don't think I'm going to clomid this month, I've not yet decided. I have another gynaecologist app on the 18th so I might skip this cycle. (I've been doing this clomid off Rx and paying private for my follie tracking). If they don't get the ball moving then I'm considering triggering with it, but I need to do a lot more research into that! That will lead me to another post actually for any info!
Well, if your all still reading thank you and sorry it's so long! I will certainly be lingering around June as you are all so lovely, I'm just sorry I never got to stay here with you guys
I'm so sorry! Both for the stupid restaurant employee and the spotting.

Sorry about the spotting.
Also you were way nicer than I would have been about the restaurant. Every body within a two block radius would have heard how I felt about it. It is one thing to be rude to adults, but another thing entirely to be rude to kids (mine or otherwise).
What, what a terrible situation. Obviously the waitress has never dinned with a toddle who she was solely responsible for. Dinning out with children is NEVER relaxing and the way that she handled the situation only made things worse. Had she been kind and compassionate, things would have gone much differently. *hugs* I would have been very upset too. Was it a chain restaurant or a small mom & pop type place?
Sorry on the spotting too. I want you to STAY!
That is horrible. I would have asked for the manager and told them of the issues right away! Definitely let the restaurant know what happened.
