A NOTE about a child’s birthday party left on a public park bench has sparked internet outrage.
Redditors were furious with the note, which branded them “rude” and condemned the “legitimate” act.
The note, placed on a park bench, read: “Reserved for a birthday party”
“Please respect the space we have reserved and do not use our tables.
“This is a four year old’s party, don’t be the one screwing it up. Many Thanks.”
The Reddit user who shared an image of the note said in the caption: “Busy public park on a hot Saturday/Labor Day weekend.
“Seems super justified.
“The park has been open for four hours and no sign of them, all other tables are full.”
The post left other users angry at the family’s note
One said: “They’re comfortable denying you your right to use public property, so her towel just won an all-expenses-paid one-way ticket to the dirty floor.”
Someone wrote: They could at least have rescheduled the party time so that people could use the tables until then and then just cleared up for the actual party time.
Another said: “They could have written more politely: ‘We know this is a public park but we’re showing up at 1pm with 20 four-year-olds so please let’s use these tables for a few hours.’
While someone added: “It’s super entitled. Pay for a venue or have someone camp out all day.”
The Redditor later provided an update saying, “They finally showed up after about 6 hours a day.
“Immediately set up a loud ghetto blaster, which attracted the parking attendants.
“It got them into a long conversation and they’ve been low key ever since.
“The best part is that several families put blankets and patches right next to the tables which I think got the message across!”
