When mom of three Ashley Wadleigh took her kids to a Red Robin, she was appalled when the couple sitting close to them immediately switched seats. The woman even hid her face away from them.

Annoyed, Ashley asked the waiter why they moved. But it’s what the waiter said next that made the mom totally change her tune.

He informed her that the couple had lost a child. As a result, it must have been difficult for them to be around children.

Feeling terribly guilty for having so harshly judged the couple without knowing them, she decided to pay their bill. The mom even posted on social media about the experience and her encounter with the couple, which you can read below. In it, she wanted to send an important message about being quick to judge people, and how this experience opened her eyes!

Mom Ashley Wadleigh was with her family at a Red Robin when she had an eye-opening experience.

She wrote on Facebook:

I decided to take my kids out to eat at Red Robin before going to our school’s skate night at the ice arena. I specifically asked for a server I used to work with and the greeter sat us at a table that was very close to another.

The woman at the table immediately looked uncomfortable and held her hand over half of her face like she didn’t want to look at us. Her husband got up from the table and whispered something in our server’s ear. He then immediately moved them to another table away from us.

Now this wouldn’t be the first time someone moved when they saw 3 kids sit down by them, but I couldn’t help but be angry. Like, what do you think my kids are going to do? Throw food? Stab you with a fork?
