Yes, at one point in the meal, Harlynn started getting restless. She refused to sit still and did her utmost to break out of her chair in order to run around and explore the restaurant. And, needless to say, the little girl’s behavior began to frazzle her mother.
Pedigo would later speak about her time in Olive Garden to North Carolina-based station WGHP, saying, “I didn’t know it’d be that big of a disaster.” She also outlined how Harlynn had reacted to the venue, adding, “She didn’t want to sit in the high chair, and so I knew something was going to happen.” Sure enough, Pedigo had been proven correct.
Since her daughter seemed to be intent on creating chaos, then, Pedigo decided to get Harlynn out of the restaurant as soon as possible. To that end, she hailed a waitress and asked to get her food packed up in take-out boxes. The tired mother then got a firm answer that took her back, however.
