I read an article about a Houston Restaurant that prohibits kids under 9 in their restaurant after 7PM. Sounds like a good idea. And some folks are up in arms!
What ever happened if I don’t like what you do, I won’t patronize your establishment? NO! Some people want businesses to change to THEIR way of thinking or they will sue!
You are living under a rock if you have never been upset at someone who cannot/will not control a child who is screaming non stop at the table next to you. OR running all around the tables playing robot, cowboy or something.
In the past few years many parents are sorely afraid to discipline their children for fear of someone reporting ‘child abuse’. I will be one of the first to admit there is ‘child abuse’, but not every physical correction is ‘abuse’. We should get over it and stop these incessant screaming and falling down kicking tantrums. THEY ONLY PRODUCES MORE POLITICIANS!
Restaurants have gone over board to assist. In the past month I believe every restaurant where we took the g-grand kids had small packs of crayons and something to color. Some have play rooms etc.
Now back to the original GRIPE. If a restaurant wants to put an age requirement on children because of past ABUSES AND CUSTOMER COMPLAINS, that is their business. It is breaking no law of discrimination, is it? But we are a ‘ME’ society. ‘My kids are always mannerly, why are you hurting me?’
Reminds me of the pet owner who has the perfect pet concerning leash rules and laws. ‘Rosco’ does not need a leash, he is perfectly trained.’ So are many others who ‘obey’ the rules.
(I laugh Every time I see this one above!)
If you follow the simple rule I remember from some where, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!” 99.9% of the time be operating in the black. That rule is Golden, don’t you think?
Thanks for stopping by the log.
I will admit many rules I do not like. But if I am in an area under these rules, I will comply. UNLESS IT ACTUALLY GOES AGAINST MY CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS AS A USA CITIZEN. So far I have not ran into those rules at an RV park.
