LETTERS From Tracy Brash, Shanklin:
I AM so upset at having a really lovely night out with my husband ruined through the inconsideration of other people.
We were eating in a restaurant in Ryde and were subjected to a constant stream of swearing by a man sitting on the next table.
This man was accompanied by his wife and another couple but this didn’t seem to matter to him, he was talking really loudly and even the appearance of two young children at his table, who knew his wife, didn’t stop him from swearing.
Why do people think it is OK to subject mums, dads, grannies, grandads and children to foul language?
I wonder if they would swear in front of their own parents or grandparents?
And what sort of example do they think they are setting to the younger generation?
There are times and places for swearing and a public place surrounded by women and children is not one of them.
