Mum shocked how man reacts after son kept hitting him with balloon at restaurant
A mum was shocked at the reaction of a fellow diner after her son repeatedly hit him over the head with a balloon at a restaurant.
Mum Lisa was at Frankie and Benny’s with her partner Phillip and her two young children on Monday when her son Luca became restless.
Facing a long wait, a waitress gave the two-year-old a balloon and colouring books to play with but while waiting for their food to arrive, but Luca hit the gentleman sitting next to them on the head with the balloon.
The family apologised and asked to be moved to another table so the man could eat his dinner in peace.
But when they went to pay, Lisa was shocked to find he had paid their bill and for them to have extra ice cream.
“I couldn’t believe it,” she told Wales Online.
“Me and my boyfriend both had tears in our eyes, it was such a kind thing to do.
“Luca was being a bit of a b***er. I think he was getting restless because it was quite busy when we went.
“The waitress gave him a balloon to keep him busy but he started waving it around and was hitting a gentleman on the head, so I asked if we could move tables because I wanted the man to be able to eat in peace.
“He responded saying ‘no, it’s fine’ and was talking to us, but we moved anyway out of respect.”
The family had each eaten two courses, with Luca enjoying spaghetti and meatballs, and the bill had come to around £70.
Lisa said that when they had finished their food she asked for the bill and the waitress came over with a huge smile on her face.
“She came over and said she was excited to tell us because it had never happened in there before.
“She said the gentleman had paid the entire bill and for extra ice cream.
“I know there’s a slim chance of finding him, but I would love to repay him and buy him a meal.
Lisa added: “Going out with the children can be stressful sometimes. It’s really nice that rather than getting annoyed about it he did that.
“I still can’t believe it, I’ve told all of my friends and family.
“It just goes to show there are some lovely people out there.”
