'Messy' mum barred from pub

Post by Kitkat on Mon 11 Sep 2017, 11:56

A mum claims she was banned from visiting her local Wetherspoon pub with her five-month-old son for being too ‘messy’.

Celia Kelly, 22, says she was frogmarched out of the pub after being accused of throwing soiled nappies and her underwear across the customer toilet.

The mum-of-one says the accusations are “100% untrue” and called them “borderline laughable”.

The popular pub chain has confirmed that Celia was banned “due to the amount and type of mess”.

Celia, who works as a carer at a care home, claims she found out about the ban when she tried to order food at The City and County – JD Wetherspoon in Goole, East Yorkshire on August 15.

A member of staff told her they couldn’t serve her and the deputy manager then escorted Celia out of the building, telling her she “wasn’t welcome” because her child was “too messy”.

Celia said: “I was told that Jayson was too messy and they had CCTV footage and photographic evidence of me leaving dirty nappies and a bra in customer toilets.

“It’s just a personal vendetta against me. The accusations are laughable – I just don’t know where they’ve got it from. They are just lies, they are 100% not true.” .......

Well, good for Wetherspoons, I say!  A pub is no place for a baby to be in, in the first place - indeed for children of ANY age!  Apart from the fact that food is being served on these premises ....  This is something I feel quite strongly about.  It's not as if they haven't got considerable choice of places to go that are suitable!  judge
I just wish more pubs would take the same [perfectly reasonable] attitude towards this sort of thing.

I agree with you, Kitkat, a baby has no place in a pub. Shocked no shake

Be grateful for even the smallest thing, blessings come in many disguises.
