Unsolicited Advice at Nandos

My son and I had lunch at Nandos Canary Wharf today while we waited for my Pixel 3 screen to be replaced (because I’m crap and damaged it within a fortnight of getting it).

He was happily munching away on half a corn on the cob – it’s an amazing sight, some chicken and a few chips, when a group of men left the restaurant and walked past our table.

Most people look towards Rafe, smile and have a brief chat with the two of us. Not this time, one of the group said the following:

“You should get him a plate for his lunch so he isn’t eating off the table”

stranger

Oh, should he now?

I was quite pleased with my response:

“So he can break the plate?”

ME

He repeated his advice.

I repeated my sentence.

There endeth the interaction.

  1. Rafe is fourteen and a half months, he can’t be trusted with a plate or bowl, plastic or otherwise
  2. The table isn’t dirty
  3. If the table is a bit dirty it will only boost his immune system
  4. Who the fuck are you? Fuck off

People. Tsk.

Thank you to the nice lady next to me who chatted to me after and basically said he was being a nob. You are good people.


This was him in Nandos Bayswater last week. I started giving him knifed off bits of corn, and then thought I needed to see his reaction to the entire cob. It’s brilliant!

    He is such a star – a good advert for Nandos I would have thought. Totally with you on this.
