    I wish the airlines would do something similar. I would pay extra for 'child free' flight.

    Or the MORON who is trying to IMPRESS everyone with the FACT he has a cellphone and its powered by YELLING into it.
    We were out to dinner a few years ago. A customer a few tables away was having a birthday. He was also a customer of mine and he was a big pompus blowhard. His phone rang and as he answered it he put it on speaker. The guy calling yells "Happy f####ing birthday a$$%%le!!! He panics and tries to shut the phone off and drops it and the guy keeps rambling. I had diet Coke coming out of my nose for 2 days after that!
    There's TREACHERY AFOOT!!!

    I'd be offended if I stopped by with my son, not knowing the rule about kids.
    But then again, my son would go into the supply house with me when he was five years old, and I'd ask him before we went in what the rule was.
    His response?

    Must be hard to live in a house where the kids are in charge of the adults.

    Thumbs up

    Good for the owner and most of all, good for the patrons. Little ones should stay home with the sitter, or just be taken to Mcdonalds, (which is what they want anyway). Fine dining is for adults and responsible older children, say 10 and up.

    Kids will only act as bad as the parents allow them to. It is a parenting problem not a kid problem most of the time. Mine learned respect at a very early age, something many parents have yet to learn themselves. The very few times when we brought our children out with us to eat and they were babies we got our meal to go if they began to cry. One case was because of an ear infection our youngest had and we didn't know about yet.

    When I go to service someone's apartment/home they know the kids and pets better be put up or kept in check or no maintenance/service is done.. I will leave and tell them they have to wait in line again.

    Completely agree with this guy's police no matter what he serves.

    No kidding, me too. Was on a flight last week. Still at the gate. I hear the mother of three behind me say "ooooh, you filled your diaper again". Does she get up and change it in the restroom? Nope. Does she change it at all? Nope. Then her two toddlers proceeded to scream, cry and fight the rest of the flight. But wait! They weren't finished. They had to kick the back of my seat or plant their feet in the seat back and push. The mom said sorry once.

    Wow, she needs to spank her kids. The bible says foolishness is bound in the heart of a child but the rod of correction will drive it far from him.

    For most children, going out to dinner other then somewhere active, like fast food places, is boring. So, they get bored and then they get active or cranky. It is not fair to the children and it is certainly not fair to the other patrons of the restaurant.

    It seems that here lately there are too young of children in every restaurant my wife and I have been to. For some reason, the person seating us always thinks it is a good idea to seat us near the table with the children. I always tell them to seat us as far away as possible, and most times they look at me like I'm being unreasonable. Not a good way to start my meal.

    I love kids. They just don't belong in every venue. The worst; seeing a kid in a restaurant with a bar in the restaurant after 9pm. I go to a bar to be with drinking adults and I don't want to have to be exposed to young children after 9pm.

    It is a shame that restaurants have to make these sort of decisions, but I hope in catches on.
