If I got that bill, and by dragging my kids out to eat at least once a week I know what Farkin needy Kids are, I would laughed my butt off and tipped the waiter extra.  I would have assumed it was inside joke for me.

From the comments:


I don't have kids, but I don't think I would have found this funny at all. That meal should have been free.


Serious question:  why should the meal have been free?

Because information wants to be free.  And food is kind of like information.

EvilEgg: How are they not being sued by the big chain for Trademark infringement?


Probably because no one is confusing Paddy's Pub over here with an ice-cream chain.

My Dad took me into places like this as a kid and we still go to the crappiest bars in every town, but I don't think I'll be dragging my kids to a smoky cave to watch me pound $1 cups of Old Style and then grab a 22 oz out of the cooler "for the road."

Not that it messed me up or anything.  It was kind of cool, but not something that's encouraged these days.  Bars used to be more kid friendly in that they told you to go play video games and leave them alone while they pounded a few, and nobody worried if you were being watched.

FrancoFile: The water was cold: dletter: thismomentinblackhistory: exick: LordZorch: So, a place that doesn't cater to people who want to inflict their crotchfruit on everyone else is "bad"...?  Too bad more places aren't like this...

Friendly's is an ice cream parlor. Their entire existence is based on catering to kids.

Actually we both made the same mistake. The place is not the franchise, but instead a sports bar...great family environment I'm sure.

As did I.... Friendly's the chain is strictly a NorthEast US thing (I have family outside of Philly, so, I know it from that).  So, this bar in St Louis doesn't likely get into any trouble with the name.


I didn't realize that Florida is in the NE!

Not as "strictly" as you thought.

Ohio takes exception to being described as "northeast" as well.


Ya well, the rest of us have to describe Ohio as "a state" despite our adamant objections... I'm sure they'll get over it.

HeartBurnKid: Is there a reason the tag had to be "farkIN NEEDY KIDS"?


The reason is, she was stressed out, and forced to be nice to someone that was making her suffer. So she made a mistake. Burn the witch!

The dad should have saved it as a badge of honor, it makes a good story for the bar, and if he's honest with himself his kids are needy. Profanity is not that offensive, it's a shared delusion that we pretend to be offended by it if we think it will get someone in trouble. Otherwise, who cares enough about the f word to go to the media? The dude is a whiny biatch and the waitress is probably a cool lady I would like to hang out with.

Case closed!

And yet she found the time to put it on there in the first place.

Never worked in a bar/restaurant have you?

No, I haven't (though I have done customer service).  Am I missing some profound insight that somehow makes biatchiness like this completely acceptable?


Yes.

Assholes will leave those on the countertops and in the restroom at my work. I pick them all up and throw them away before real customers can see.


The ones I see in the restroom are usually at the bottoms of the urinals.

I want to put on a ski mask, approach them in a dark parking lot with some kind of weapon and "personal massager" and say "I'll show you 'sinner.'" And run away as they soil their pants.

I obviously have other issues, but you can't say I don't have goals!

1)    Dad sounds like a Farking needy Dad. ... He needs STFU, stop whining (wanting his meal for free) and to grow some balls

2)    If I got that check (If I had farking needy kids), I would have written farking needy waitress in the tip area, and been done with it,

3)   They need Yelp reviews about Yelp. One site I would never go for advice on anything

I fail to see how the owner is a douchebag. What did you want him to do? Fire the server on the spot for a dumb joke? That'd be an overreaction to what was clearly a joke that got farked up. The little snowflake wasn't in any way wounded by it, and nor was dad. What else should the owner have done? Bent to his knees and fellated the guy? Given him freebies for a month? The guy brought his damned snowflake to a sports BAR that is for over 21s. He needs to man up and admit he is just as responsible as the server was, if not more so.

The only thing the owner did wrong is letting the kid in at all. And I say that as somebody with a four year old snowflake of my own.

This is the difference between a local pub and a national chain.

If it's a national chain, the PR department would inform us after two days that "The employee in question is no longer a member of our team".

Since it's a local guy's joint, we're informed that "I told Phyllis to erase that shiat before printing the tab from now on.  The customer needs to relax and get laid more often".

I like local joints.

It's an easy mistake to make, what with all the New York and Maryland trash that move down here daily.


DOnt foget the trash from Ohio and Michigan too. Then theres the late start to the summer heat, usually something I wouldnt complain about, but it kept the snow birds here and extra month or so.

This article annoys me because the man who took his children there is a complete douchebag. SERIOUSLY? You brought your kid to a BAR...then got mad enough when the server biatched and shared all over the internet. YOU SIR ARE THE PROBLEM WITH THE WORLD. YOUR KIND. YOU. You the guy who brings your kids everywhere especially on a DRINKING run. So..I say...I can't wait till the x wife. BECAUSE you know he is no longer married sees this.

They're getting harder and harder to come by. I remember as a kid thinking the bar was magical -- cherries in a freakin' red Sprite with an umbrella? Magic. It was also awesome playing Super Mario Bros. on a huge projection screen.

If you huff and puff and mischaracterize somebody's attempt at making a joke about a given situation into a "so you think my X is a  joke, then?" stance of righteous indignification, you are a jackass and don't deserve further consideration.

Just because I made a joke doesn't mean you are a joke.  Oh, wait, I take it back.

You are a joke, sir.  Good day.
