I have witnessed the Sunday Church Ladies filling their 'water' cups with beverages (multiple glasses because they are so small) at Panera in River Forest more than once. But I'm sure they don't realize you are supposed to pay for the beverages! A 7 year old should realize it as well. Unless this was the first time his Mom took him to a fast food restaurant. Perhaps first time he was caught.

Bridgett, perhaps as you were writing your last three posts you hadn't noticed that we have, actually, moved on. Ed, as usual, I have no idea what you're talking about, but I hope you're enjoying yourself. Bye.

I agree with Bridget. Of course Mr. Hippie SDS Hammond is fine with the kid sticking it to "the man." After all, he thinks it is fine to stick his dirty arm over the sneeze guard! Watch your kid better next time lady so others don't have to!

Yana felt publically embarrassed by Miranda. So, as the more mature adult in the scenario, Yana decides to return an eye for an eye and embarrass Miranda publicly. Super. Now can we all move on? '

"Dump it" is verbal punishment? This is the interpretation from the guy who wrote an entire blog post chastising a Chipotle worker who told him to stop putting his hand over the sneeze guard. Good grief. I agree with Observer, that giving the restaurant direct feedback, rather than posting a truncated version of the account on a local paper's website, would be a much wiser move. And from my experience, 99% of the time, companies truly value the feedback (when given maturely).

"Accidentally?" II guess we will never know what really went down, will we? I have observed people at Oak Park restaurants stealing via the fountain machines. Often. Children with their parents, teenagers, and adults. So my comment is with that background in mind. But hey, it's just five cents worth of high fructose corn syrup sweetened water, so what's the big deal? Drink up.

Highly inappropriate to engage a child in this manner. I would file a complaint with their corporate office. Here is a link: https://www.jimmyjohns.com/company/feedback/

There's no justification for yelling at a customer, unless the customer is consciously doing something so egregiously wrong that it demands such abrupt action. A child who accidentally fills a cup with the wrong beverage does not qualify for such verbal punishment. I can't believe any sane person would think this was an appropriate response.

Taking a drink from the fountain, regardless of the quantity, without paying is stealing. Since she didn't see you correcting your child, the worker did your job for you.

No mom likes to be yelled at, especially in a crowded restaurant in front of her kids. Avoid this restaurant. Supervisor Miranda has no etiquette or customer skills and she may not even like children! Very unprofessional person. Yes, she yelled at my children and me from behind the counter. She was furious that my 7 year-old put 1/4 cup of lemonade into his "water-only" free cup! This was the reason she yelled at us to "DUMP IT OUT, DUMP IT,..YOU GOTTA DUMP IT OUT!.. justifiable? u decide
