Would You Patronize A Restaurant That Posts A Sign Saying: ‘No Screaming Kids Allowed?’
A restaurant in Carolina Beach, North Carolina, called the Olde Salty has posted a sign at the entrance advising patrons that screaming kids will not be allowed. The restaurant has previously suffered from screaming rug rats and complaining patrons who were trying to enjoy a quiet meal. So the owner said that enough was enough and banned the unruly kids from her establishment.
According to an article at WECT 6 News it also states that:
Armes says the signs have worked.
“It has been a good thing for us,” Armes said. “It has brought us in more customers than it has ever kept away.”
Gary Gibson was dining at the restaurant for the first time and agrees with Armes.
“It’s not very enjoyable when you hear a bunch of kids screaming. It’s nice to see a sign like that up,” Gibson said.
While many are for the rule, some families are against it.
“I’ve never seen a restaurant say, don’t bring your screaming kids in here,” said Ashley Heflin, who is a mom of two. “You can’t help it if your kids scream.”
Hello, Ashley. This is exactly what is wrong when adults do not supervise their children. Why do the remainder of us have to suffer from your brats hollowing when we are trying to eat? Take the little monsters to McDonald’s, Burger King, or other fast food joints that cater to them. Just my two cents.
Next step: ban cell phones! I do not want to listen to the conversation of others while I eat.
Gee, I feel better. LOL
