The People At The Restaurant Gave Them Mean Looks When His Father Spilled Food On Himself, Son Reacts In An INCREDIBLE Way
A short story published on MoralStories really shines a light on the bond between father and son. As both father and son grow older, the bond between them strengthens. Sadly, as life cycles will have it, fathers eventually age and cannot take care of themselves properly.
Elderly fathers often rely on their sons or grandsons to take care of them. It is a sad thing to see that some do not care, or simply do not make the time for the ones that raised them.
When a son takes his father to dinner one night, the father spills food all over himself. Instead of scolding or reacting negatively to the incident, the son does something incredible that many wouldn’t do.
“A son took his old father to a restaurant for an evening dinner. Father being very old and weak, while eating, dropped food on his shirt and trousers. Other diners watched him in disgust while his son was calm.
After he finished eating, his son who was not at all embarrassed, quietly took him to the wash room, wiped the food particles, removed the stains, combed his hair and fitted his spectacles firmly. When they came out, the entire restaurant was watching them in dead silence, not able to grasp how someone could embarrass themselves publicly like that. The son settled the bill and started walking out with his father.
At that time, an old man amongst the diners called out to the son and asked him, “Don’t you think you have left something behind?”.
The son replied, “No sir, I haven’t”.
The old man retorted, “Yes, you have! You left a lesson for every son and hope for every father”.
The restaurant went silent.
Moral: To care for those who once cared for us is one of the highest honors. We all know, how our parents cared for us for every little things. Love them, respect them, and care for them”
