I don’t like to make a fuss. I want a coffee. I have child. If someone has to help me drag a pushchair up steps or wrangle with seventeen tables just to let me and the gargantuan pile of plastic through, that’s making a fuss. And I don’t like to make a fuss.
(By the way, I don’t like pushchairs either. But it’s not always practical to carry both baby and all their stuff like some sort of over-sized, double-shelled turtle.)
So where, as a parent with pushchair, can you enjoy a much-needed caffeine hit?
