CHARLOTTE, N.C. - If your children are under six years of age, they will not be dining at McDain's Restaurant and Golf Center in Monroeville, a western Pennsylvania town. The owner, a man named Mike Vuick, says there's "nothing wrong with babies, but the fact is you can't control their volume." He says all that screaming and crying disturbs many of his customers. The ban goes into effect July 16th... Even still, Franklin says he can't imagine banning children from the family-friendly business. He says, "As long as the parents are being responsible and taking care of their kids, there is no reason for it." Charlotte restaurant-goers we talked to say kids can ruin a meal. Neal Mims says, "I don't like kids in restaurants. I think it's a little sometimes over the top." And Megan Johnson says, "I think it's just a respect issue with the people that are around in the restaurant."
Preach Megan Johnson, Preach! Look, it's nothing against kids, its just that there are plenty of restaurants and places to take them...nice dinner restaurants just don't fall into that category, and this guy saying as long as parents are responsible for them, then it's not an issue? Where the hell have you been living. Even the most responsible parent can't stop a 3 or 4 year old from throwing a shit fit after his grilled cheese accidentally touches his french fries...food can't touch bro! Good luck trying to quiet that kid down...meanwhile I'm just trying to enjoy a nice steak and a few brews and now I've got this wailing child behind me and I'm starting to think of ways I could silence the kid without going to jail...its not a healthy situation for anyone involved.
And call me an asshole, but I don't think this age restricted ban should stop here...how about a movie theater that doesn't allow kids under 18? A 21+beach? Chuckee Cheese's where adults can go into the ball pit without looking like a social outcast? Seriously, adults and their taxes and disposable income pay for all this shit, is it too much to ask for a few reprieves from children and everyday life where we can just relax, or cut loose, or just act like a bunch of overgrown kids without the actual children around?
