Unsupervised tots running amok in restaurants create a messy, noisy, chaotically frenzied atmosphere and it's irritating as all hell to try and have a calm, quiet, orderly meal while other peoples' less-than-adorable special snowflakes are yelling, throwing food, hitting and kicking things and nosing around the dining room.
Kids are people too, yo. Some say banning kids from certain spaces is discriminatory. Weren't we all crying babies at one time? And how will they learn if they don't eat out?
"I think kids need to know how to behave in restaurants, and if you, don't take them to them, they don't know how to behave and they shouldn't be kept hidden away, so I think it's ridiculous. Kids should be allowed in restaurants."
Sorry, but no one wants to shell out a ton of money to dine out next your crying kid. Think of everyone else. Your server is not a valid replacement for a babysitter.
Many times, they will be young parents who order plenty of wine while their kids play with each other. The adults are a lot more relaxed and laid-back than they normally are because they are in an enclosed space where they assume the staff will make sure their kids don’t leave the premises. This means that they are not watching their offspring, which effectively turns us employees into babysitters while we’re also busy taking orders and serving.
Sorry, nope. Dining out should be a special occasion and no one should suffer on account of your bad parenting skills.
"I think it’s very rude and very uncouth to sit there and let your baby cry and scream when obviously there’s a problem and you’re not handling it. Maybe he’s tired. Maybe he needs to be fed. I can’t stand for parents to sit there and ignore [their] own child while they eat."
