Hoping 'good' parents will return boy's treasured toy
MAY I bring to your attention yet another example of some parents inability to teach their children the difference between right and wrong.
My family were enjoying lunch at The Mountbatten Inn on Thursday, December 27, and my three-year-old grandson proudly displayed his new toy train on the table.
During the meal my son noticed a young boy aged approximately six to eight years sat at the adjacent table, taking an interest in the model.
Upon completing their lunch my family were preparing to leave and noticed that the toy was missing.

Thinking that it may have fallen on the floor one of the staff conducted a search, to no avail.
My son then asked my grandson what he had done with the toy and he said that a "big boy" had taken it. When asked why he didn't say anything he replied because he was a big boy at which point he became distraught.
So many congratulations to the people concerned for doing such a fine job making sure that this particular young boy thinks he can just take something that is not his.
However, if as I would hope they have found this item on their son and realise the situation, I would be quite happy to accept the return of the item and I apologise for doubting their parental skills and accept the boy's action as a one off.
