(HUFFINGTON POST) As any parent in the midst of potty training a child knows, public restrooms are sub-optimal for toddlers. HuffPost blogger Amber Dusick has illustrated the challenges (boys who can’t reach the potty, girls who require toilet paper patchwork quilts, etc.), but much of the Internet is still outraged by one mom’s recent solution to the going-potty-in-public conundrum.
It happened at the Thanksgiving Point Deli in Utah. The mom in question brought her family’s potty to the restaurant, placed it on a chair and let each of her two children sit on it. While eating. At a table. In the middle of the dining room.
Kimberly Decker, a mother of three, saw the incident as it was happening. She took a picture with her phone and shared it on her Facebook wall, KXNT reports. The photo has since been taken down.
“She had to undo the jumpsuits, and take them all the way down so they were completely nude, with the jumpsuits down to their ankles just eating their chicken nuggets, sitting on little toddler potties,” Decker told KSLTV. Many patrons, herself included, were horrified, she added. “The more you thought about it, the more unappetizing everything looked around me.” she added.
