Restaurant Knocks $5 Off Brunch Bill For “Well Behaved Kids”

While parents who let their kids run wild in public are often the object of (much-deserved) scorn and derision, moms and dads whose youngsters behave themselves rarely get the high-five they deserve for reducing the world’s general level of brattiness. But yesterday, a restaurant in Canada decided that a family with a non-rowdy kid deserved a break on their bill.

Last night, a parent in Calgary posted the above receipt from an area Japanese restaurant to Reddit.

The family had celebrated Mother’s Day with some brunch, and their one-year-old daughter apparently was so non-fussy that the eatery took five dollars off the $54 CAD ($49.63 USD) bill.

This is a huge improvement over a 2013 Father’s Day incident in which a waitress in Missouri included “F**king Needy Kid” as a line item on a customer’s bill.
