Screaming, Out Of Control Children In Restaurants

Okay here goes.  WTF is up with parents who ignore their children in public while said child is making a spectacle of themselves.

This brat tonight was so loud I could not hear the waiter and I could not carry on a conversation with my girlfriend while we were trying to enjoy our dinner.

Back in the day, your mamma would have smacked your ass right then and there in front of God and everybody for acting up in public.  Sometimes you would get it again when you got home.  I am not advocating child abuse so don’t get all excited.  However, people need to establish ground rules for their children in public so the rest of us paying to eat out don’t have to be subjected to bad behavior.  What’s worse is the parent(s) sits there and acts like nothing is going on while their demon possessed child runs wild.  Not the time to “tune out” cause that’s a “cop out”.

Okay, enough said!

  1. I’m sorry, I just came across and had to comment. I completely agree with you! I work in a restaurant and sometimes I feel like we should have a huge sign (like in the movie theaters) that says: TAKE SCREAMING CHILDREN OUTSIDE!

    I work in casual sushi restaurant, one which several people frequent on dates. The acoustics in the restaurant and really good, so if a baby screams in the hear it up front at the bar.

    In their defense, some parents do take time to carry their child outside..however, the majority of them just let their kid scream. If you know you child is a screamer (and parents know) and you still take them are just as bad as they are.

    Bravo to you!
    I loved your rant.
