I am waiting for lab work and a little 2 year old is screaming and running around the waiting room. Her mom just quietly says shhh every so often. It's been going on for about 15 minutes. Do you:
I ask the mother to help, given the location. 2 year old can be hyper and fussy when contained, but a polite request wouldn't be out of line.
Sympathize with the parent and hang in there . Aren't children wonderful?
No way would I torture myself by stayin there.
Tell the idiot to shut her brat up
The parent is old enough to know better. Talk to the parent.
