filter: Seriously, though, it was obnoxious eating dinner, seated next to a table of very drunk and rowdy weekend warrior 'bikers.'And to the bozo mentioning day care--- how many evening/night day cares are there, anywhere?
djones101: If you want to ban someone, ban the parents who have no idea how to teach their children manners.
robodog: You do know that pub comes from public house, aka the central gathering place for the community, right? Just because a bunch of alcoholics want to turn it into a windowless expanded version of their moms basement doesn't mean that's what it's meant to be or should be.
gfid: abhorrent1: Whar Hero tag? Whar!I was going to ask the same thing.Where I used to work sometimes we'd go to a nameless brew-pub/restaurant and they have a section just for the restaurant area, but parents would often insist on letting their pint sized brats run around the bar - where everyone drinks.and these kids sometimes would only come up to my knees while I'm trying to navigate my way to the bathroom and back. I really wish I had just knocked one of them over just to see the parents reaction when I asked them "WTF did you think could happen if you let your brat run around a crowded bar where people drink?"
Persnickety: They've pretty much killed going out to a movie.
Kristoph57: djones101: If you want to ban someone, ban the parents who have no idea how to teach their children manners.No - no matter how much they state how well their children are behaving, they are children. As a former child myself, you learn quite quickly how to get away with things even when not under the watchful eye of the parent. This is what kids do. They learn what their parents will pass off as "endearing" behavior, or "just kids being kids" and proceed to ride that train until its out of track.At that point, everyone around you is already pissed off because food is flung, dropped on the floor, gurglyburbly noises, screaming, crying, complaining in high pitched child voices, running around, ect./no child is an angel//not even yours.. or yours.. or yours.///Hire a babysitter.
ElPresidente: Children have ruined British pubs more than anything else. Adults need places to play as much as children - the two don't need to mix. I know what a farking child looks like, and I'm not impressed by the ability of others to procreate, nor do I need to see (and especially hear) the end product.
AverageAmericanGuy: Daycare is expensive for single mom's, subby.
