    You belong at McDonalds. I find your attitude typical of 21st century "I'm entitled" attitude. I pay good money just like you do. I am just as entitled to have a pleasant carefree meal. You have NO right to disturb my meal just because you are an incompetent parent who does not know how to teach your child right from wrong and how to be a good citizen. Should you be eating a meal in a restaurant that I am at, & your kids act up, maybe I should take a dump on your table and let your kids get dysentary.

    I've seen dogs at restaurants (outdoor seating of course) that behaved better than some children.

    There as absolutely no reason for any parent to let their kids run amok wherever and whenever they chose. And you're right, these kids will grow up with the same F-you attitude as the morons that raised them. They'll talk loudly on their cell phones in the 'quiet car' of the train, or at a performance or movie. They'll take up 2 parking spaces or park in the 'handicapped only' space with their institutionalized moms hang tag. Or sue everybody because their life is so unfulfilling, but it can't possibly be their fault because pattern their whole existance after some dick on Jersey Shore.

    I guess it's time to up the meds.

    So on the whole, it seems more like an adult problem rather then a child problem no?? If the kids are taught proper table manners and etiquette, I for one wouldn't mind having them in the restaurant. The point is to be considerate, and gracious and that is where proper upbringing makes a big difference.. I've given complimentary desserts to children who are well behaved when I worked as a waiter... I think it reinforces the idea that "hey, being nice brings rewards!!"

    This just an example of what I witnessed on Sunday night. We are at a family Italian restaurant. At the next table there are 4 adults and three children the adults at one end, children at the other. the youngest boy, around 6, starts banging on the older boy around 9 with some plastic toy. And it wasn't love taps. Of course a load fitght breaks out. The adults didn't even notice or pay attention to the load screaming. Sure made MY dinner pleasant. Thanks folks I'm glad you had a good time at my expense.

    At another table there was a part of 10-12, celebrating a 1 year old first birthday. Hyper sonic screetching, loud screaming cries, 3 year olds running around, and they even closed off one table (losing revenue).
    And you are telling me that banning children is somehow demonic? I think we should rephrase; we aren't banning children, we are banning inconsiderate, lazy, incompetent parents. the kids just come along as baggage. ITS THE PARENTS THAT NEED TO BE BANNED.

    You missed my point - and I couldn't care less. You belong at Old Country Buffet. There won't be any kids there to bother you!

    I can tell you this, they will sure as heck know what the word facetious means! I've got good kids, and I'm a good parent. Disagreeing with you doesn't change that.

    Ah, so you're just being a troll.
