The manager of one of Dublin’s most popular Cafes, the ‘White Moose Cafe’, Paul Stenson, has caused further controversy after he made his feelings known towards parents who cannot control their ‘screaming babies in a detailed Facebook post.
Mr Stenson has angered many parents after his latest outburst against his costumers and their children with many calling it offensive, the often outspoken Stenson wrote:
‘If you cannot control your crying (screaming) babies, I will crush up some valium and put it in their fruit juice. Babies are more than welcome in our café, but please ensure that they are asleep throughout the entire duration of their visit. ‘P.S. No charge for the valis. I have a lifetime supply.’
Although the blatant disrespectful post didn’t sit well with many mothers, some did find it rather amusing with one mother replying: “Can you not give the valium to us parents?” while another pointed out “Valium? I use whisky myself. If I drink enough of it I can no longer hear my lot.”
It’s not the first time Stenson caused controversy. The outspoken cafe owner has previously taken a swipe at vegans who “waltz into our cafe with no notice and look at us like we have ten heads when you realise that there aren’t 50,000 items on our menu that suit your idiosyncratic dietary requirements.”
That rather rude post led to a number of people joining a Facebook group page ‘People Against the White Moose Cafe’ which calls for the Dublin 7 cafe to be boycotted.
