“I hope HIS restaurant GOES under with in [sic] a YEARS [sic] time. Who HATES children??? The owner sounds like a real LOOSER [sic] with no sense of humour and a personality of a ROCK…
But there seems to be a fine line a business owner is forced to walk.
He can either admit everyone and potentially lose customers who are bothered by children who are screaming, or he can refuse to serve young children and lose customers who want to bring theirs into his eatery.
I’ve talked to friends who have children, but who have complained about other people’s children screaming and throwing fits in restaurants. So it isn’t entirely a parent vs. non-parent issue.
How would you feel about a restaurant that took such a stance? Would it make you more likely or less likely to eat there? If you have young children, would that policy make you consider going there on a “date night” without your kids?
