Maybe they had a bad night. Screaming kids? A big fight? Someone got sick? You're sure to have your own questions after seeing the mess left behind by a family at a restaurant in the United Kingdom.

Word spread pretty fast after a picture was posted of the unidentified family's table in Harvester Colchester to the "Spotted: Colchester"  Facebook group, a page that allows residents in the area to share pictures and send messages.

The photo was captioned:

"I don’t care who you are, how often you get to go out to eat, how many kids you’ve got or how bad your day has been. It is NOT ok to go out to dinner and walk away from your table - leaving it in a state like this for somebody else to clear up. This is what happened in Harvester Colchester tonight. The poor young girl left with this disgusting mess didn’t know where to start."

Other Facebook users had a lot to say about the mess.

"I work at a mcdonalds. This is the family that have the 'it's their job' attitude."

"I have 6 children two babies and as they have just started feeding there selves there can be an awful mess, but I always clean the table stack the plates, I even ask the staf for a dust pan and brush to clean everything off the floor, the staff always say it’s fine they will do it but I say I haven’t had to cook dinner for 8 for once cleaning up is nothing."
