Restaurant Bans Screaming Kids, Business Booms

The female owner of a North Carolina restaurant has put up a new sign on its front door saying, “Screaming children will not be tolerated.”

The restraunteur says she got sick of customers complaining about parents who couldn’t control their kids during meals, treating the restaurant like their personal playground, misbehaving and squawking.

If a kid starts screaming, an employee will ask the parent to please take the child outside.

“We want to attract the type of people that come in knowing they aren’t going to have to sit behind a table with a bunch of screaming children,” the owner said.

Asked for her opinion, one mother said that she had never seen such a sign and that, “You can’t help it if your kids scream.”

The restaurant says it’s brought them more new business than it’s driven away.
