“Don’t Be The One To Mess It Up”: Entitled Note On Public Park Benches Asks People To Not Sit There Because Of A Kid’s Birthday

An image of a note left in a busy public park has been going viral on the internet after someone posted it on the Mildly Infuriating subreddit three days ago. The caption indicated that the note was left in a “busy public park on a hot Saturday/Labor Day weekend.”

The author added: “Seems super entitled. Park has been open for 4 hours and no sign of them. All the other tables are full.” Turns out the note was left by the parents of a four-year-old who ‘reserved’ three tables for their child’s birthday party.

Understandably, the note caused quite a stir on social media, prompting people to debate on entitled behavior and arrogance in busy public spaces. Scroll down and share what you think of this situation in the comments below!

Many people thought that reserving public park benches and not showing up is not acceptable

Others, however, did not shame the parents who wrote the note and saw no big deal

I'll bet you a dollar that the folks who don't see a problem with it are just the kind of people who would do such a thing.

Exactly! And if they went to a public park and every table was being held for one reason or another, they would be issed off.

It's public space, you do not get to reserve it, and to use emotional manipulation, saying " you'll ruin the child's birthday" is just way over me. If it's not a place that you could literally rent, then whoever gets there, gets the table, end of story, they have just as much right to it as anyone else. Also, I bet there are many others who have their birthday and would want to have a party there, yet this Karen of a parent is the type who, if anybody else would do the same thing, would be the first to revolt. I feel sorry in advance for her child, who almost definitely will grow up n a world of double standards, as far as it can be seen from this parent.

This one is not complicated. The park doesn’t take reservations. It’s first come first served. If a park ranger had noticed the note, they would have been right to take it down and toss it in the garbage.
