We’ve all been out in public and witnessed something that made us angry.

Whether it was someone carelessly throwing litter on the ground or a person who clearly forgot their manners, we’ve all experienced something that really ground our gears.

Prepare for that experience to feel much smaller, as this story is much more extreme than anything you’ve ever seen before.

Setting the scene


This story starts in a restaurant. Imagine you’re sitting at a table enjoying your delicious meal, when suddenly you clock a mother sat at another table with her son and daughter. Yet there’s something about the family that grabs your attention..

Questioning the situation
